1-6 grade Junior Cougar Boys Basketball Camp

The emphasis of the clinic will be placed on ball handling, dribbling, pivoting, passing, and one-on-one moves, perimeter shots, and free throws.  The entire objective of the program is to introduce the boys to the correct fundamentals used in the game of basketball.  The clinic offers little opportunity in playing real games.  In the time allotted for the program, our coaching staff feels it is more important to spend the time teaching proper individual techniques.  Members of the Cougar coaching staff will be present at the sessions with varsity and junior varsity players demonstrating and teaching.  We look forward to helping your son get a healthy introduction or progressing further in his understanding of basketball and love of the game.
