2024 WILBA Summer Camp

What?

For younger players, building skill mastery is crucial. It takes about 50-100 accurate repetitions over three days to learn a new skill. It takes about 2,500 accurate repetitions over three weeks to undo a skill learned incorrectly.

At WILBA Summer Camp, we believe it is worth the investment to help younger athletes learn a skill accurately. We also believe that having fun is crucial for future passion. Our camp combines great teaching, high energy, enthusiasm and tons of fun into a week-long experience that younger athletes will love.

Players will be divided into groups based on age. Groups will be adjusted on a daily basis as necessary based on the advice of our staff to ensure that all players are appropriately challenged.

Players will participate in group drills to build the following skills:

  • Ballhandling, dribbling, shooting, layups, passing, rebounding, cutting, offensive and defensive footwork, pivoting, triple threat, man-to-man offense and man-to-man defense.

In addition, the players will participate in the following team-based activities:

  • Daily half-court 3v3 and full-court 5v5 games, shooting competitions with and against the coaching staff, and week-long cumulative 'Olympic' competitions.

Who?

All boys and girls born between January 1st, 2009 and June 25th, 2017 are eligible to attend the camp. Players of all experience levels and skill ranges are welcome.

The camp program and all activities will be overseen by our technical director Mike Hickey. The staff will comprise past and present WILBA players from our competitive boys and girls intercity teams.
