Proper Basketball Camp in conjunction with the jr. NBA is proud to offer a premiere youth summer basketball program for kids ages 6 to 14. Our founding partners collectively have more than 60 years of coaching experience at the college level and have received some of the highest accolades attainable in basketball. Additionally, our partners have experience establishing, managing, and working at prestigious summer sports camps throughout New England. Our mission is to provide our campers with a wonderful summer experience while they acquire new skills, learn good sportsmanship, make new friends, and have fun.
Camps are not created equally. Because our staff consists of current and former college athletes, professional basketball players, high school and college coaches, we will not settle for rollaway plastic basketball hoops or an outdated facility. Camp is held at the Gosman Athletic Center, a world-class, state-of-the-art facility located on the campus of Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. Here, our campers can experience playing in the former practice gym of the Boston Celtics. The main court is named after Celtic’s Hall of Fame coaching legend Red Auerbach. Campers will play on the same court where players such as Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, and Robert Parrish once practiced. There are 5 top-notch courts in the Center allowing campers at every level the space needed to work on their skills. Whether a camper is new to the game or a rising star, our staff members will meet a camper where they are at and help them develop their talents.
Proper Basketball campers will learn correct mechanics and techniques such as dribbling, passing, and shooting. They will complete camp with better athletic understanding and knowledge of the game of basketball. Through fun and competitive games, contests, and drills, staff will help everyone build self-confidence, increase agility, gain strength, and improve self-esteem. Competiveness is part of most sports, but not the only part! While teaching proper fundamentals of the game, we will stress teamwork and fair play. If basketball is not a camper’s main or only sport it does not matter. It will still be fun, enriching, and a healthy way to spend vacation days.
This summer, allow the enthusiastic staff at Proper Basketball Camp to give your child a sports camp experience to remember in the safe environment of the Gosman Athletic Center at the Brandeis University campus, 415 South Street, Waltham, Massachusetts. Just off Rt 128/95 and I90 Mass Turnpike, Proper Basketball Camp is just 12 miles NW of Boston.
