Suburban Basketball Camp

Whether you are a beginner without organized basketball experience or a player looking for the edge to make it to the next level we have the drills and knowledge to meet your needs. We teach every camper about the phases of the game and how to become an all-around better player. We focus on basketball conditioning that involves specific motions and speed patterns. Our programs are designed to give kids of all ages and abilities a disciplined, well organized surrounding to improve their game as well as their overall fitness. While the camps are focused on teaching ball handling, dribbling, and shooting we always encourage self-esteem, teamwork and effort. Our goal is to provide every camper with a blueprint as to how they can become the player that they want to be.

Suburban Basketball Clinics

Introduction to Basketball

These clinics introduce children (4-6 years old) to the movements and the fundamental skills involved in playing the game of basketball. In many towns basketball does not start until the 3rd grade and these clinics provide children with a head start towards playing and understanding the game. We use 27.5” basketballs and 6ft hoops to accommodate the smaller ballers. Instead of playing games at this level we focus on learning skills and turning each skill into a modified competition. Each clinic is highly organized to maximize the amount of active learning time and minimize the amount of down time.

Next Step Basketball

Next step basketball clinics are for children (6-8 years old) who have some basketball experience and would like to improve their skills, strength, coordination, agility, flexibility, confidence, and so much more. In the next step program we use 28.5” basketballs and shoot on 8ft rims. We still focus on skill development and use modified games.  These clinics are great for a young baller to continue improving their skills.

Suburban Soccer Clinics

Suburban youth Soccer clinics are skill focused training sessions for children who are just learning about the game. Our experienced instructors teach kids all the fundamentals of soccer in a lively and engaging program designed to encourage good sportsmanship and a love for sports.

Our clinics will help kids learn to be part of a structured group activity without a parent by their side. Our clinics focus on helping kids develop their motor skills and coordination through skill demonstrations and entertaining games
