Basketball Boot Camp
Basketball Boot Camp
Basketball is a sport played by two teams of five players on a rectangular court. The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter and 10 feet (3.0 m) high mounted to a backboard at each end. Basketball is one of the world's most popular and widely viewed sports. (Wikipedia)
Recruit training, more commonly known as basic training and colloquially called boot camp, is the initial indoctrination and instruction given to new military personnel, enlisted and officer. (Wikipedia)
Basketball has been a sport since 1891 and was introduced by Dr. James Naismith. The sport has gone through much evolution since that time. Changes include moving from the peach basket to the basketball rim, non-dribbling (as dribbling was not a part of the early game) to extraordinary ball handlers and from bounce passes only to ¾ full court pass highlights. Basketball has grown leaps and bounds since its inception and will continue to grow.
The Basketball Boot Camp, held at the Aquadome Recreation Center, is a fun and effective fundemental training camp for all skill levels. We take the children through their basic training and give them an indoctrination and instruction for a good foundation in basketball. They participate in drills for dribbling, passing and shooting which allows the participants to address weaknesses and strengths. They are also taught about defense and teamwork. It is our desire to present this sport as a true life lesson with emphasis on education and family. We have learned that structure and a family atmosphere prevail in the bonding of individuals.
The Basketball Boot Camp is an ongoing camp throughout the school year and during the summer. During the After School Program for middle school students, Basketball Camp is taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 pm to 4:45 pm. This is also an effective time for Decatur Parks and Recreation youth basketball players to train during their basketball season. In the past, some coaches have asked their players to enroll in the camp to hone their skills. Other coaches have used the camp as a time and place for drills so that they can focus on plays during practice. In the summer the camp is taught more frequently during the week and for a longer period of time.
A good foundation is needed for any building or relationship to stand. The Basketball Boot Camp helps the youth to lay that solid foundation for life.
