Camp Sessions

Listed below are the dates and descriptions of each camp session.

Each session runs Monday thru Thursday from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 NOON, located at the 14 basketball courts in the Margate Little League Baseball Complex; entrance is at Huntington & Fulton Avenues.


ONE

DRIBBLE/BALLHANDLING WEEK
June 29th – July 2nd

Whether you are big or small, the handling of the ball is the most important factor in the game. It all starts here, and it starts with the dribble. And here is where you should start – from the ground up. You will learn all the moves from the dribble with drills that have you dribbling 7,000 – 10,000 times dally, depending on your work ethic. Working hard is HARD WORK. We offer two separate camps for this all-important skill.


TWO

REPS/SHOOTING WEEK
July 6th – 9th

We began our REPS Shooting Camp in 1995 with one major goal guaranteeing each shooter 1000 shots on most days. We believe that constant repetition – working on form and technique – is the only way to develop a feared, consistent jump shot. We have an extensive amount of drills to improve your shot. Coach Brady of James Madison University (August 3- August 6 Session only) and his fellow Coaches will definitely leave an impression on you, and your shot. Learn it here! We also offer two separate camps for This all-important skill.


THREE

OFFENSIVE MOVES
July 13th – 16th

This camp will concentrate on offensive moves from the outside with the ball. Players should already be skilled ball handlers, having received instructions in the dribble and shooting camps, or having good skills in these facets of the game.


FOUR

3-0N-3 WEEK
July 20th – 23rd

This is the third phase of the learning process of our camps. At The Top would like to help build a foundation for playing basketball the way it used to be played. Our objective during this week is to use the game of 3-on-3 to teach young players how to play together and the importance of teamwork. Our camp format, as usual, will be to use a series of drills to get players to “see” their teammates on the court and to learn the importance of cutting and screening away off the ball. We will then use these skills in our daily 3-on-3 competition.


FIVE

DRIBBLE/BALLHANDLING WEEK
July 27th – 30th

Whether you are big or small. the handling of the ball is the most important factor in the game. It all starts here, and it starts with the dribble.

SHOOTING WEEK

SEVEN

1-ON-1 CAMP
August 10th – 13th

This camp was originally added by many requests from you, the parents. Defense will be highlighted, but we will mix in a little of the ball handling drills to break the workouts down. Man to man coverage and movements will be stressed with emphasis on proper footwork, hand positioning and aggressiveness. Double teams and “help” defense will also be stressed. Half the game is defense, and as curren/former coaches and players, we feel this is a great addition to our camp – something that no one else offers


EIGHT

COMBO WEEK
August 17th – 20th

This camp is at the end of the summer and will take the skills taught in most of our weekly camps and combine them into one week.
