Open to any athlete 14 years of age and up, willing to learn what it will take to be at the top of their game.
Panther Hoops Coaching Staff are dedicated to provide opportunity for players to develop every aspect of their game. Ultimately the winning and losing of a basketball game can be dependent on an athletes ability to finish a play. Professional and college players display phenomenal shooting ability, extending their range well beyond the 3 point arch. They take pride in getting to the free shot line to make the extra point and there is therefore a desire by young players to emulate their idols. Panther Hoops shooting camps are a great opportunity to learn the fundamentals of shooting, footwork, hand position and release which will be the catalyst to developing a range of shooting techniques. Through drills, shooting scenarios and games, athletes will be exposed to a variety of shots, finishes and will have an opportunity to develop and refine their technique under expert coaching eyes. Growing as a shooter will require dedication, and practice but having the right foundation and technique, increases the likelihood of turning a good shooter, into a great shooter.
As part of Panther Hoops specialized camps series, we are proud to offer a camp that is dedicated to athlete development and focuses on the skills required to be an effective player in and around the key. Our “Inside Game” Camp will provide expert tuition in playing close to the hoop. We will learn how to maximise footwork and body position to gain an advantage of space over an opponent, how to make a solid platform and target, to receive an incoming pass, and to be able to finish with both hands under physical pressure. Dominating the paint is an art, it is a skill that young players often leave out of their toolbox for the want to shoot and dribble. Although historically the under the hoop game was designed for taller and physically strong players we recognize that many of the inside game skills are transferable. Rebounding, left and right hand close to rim finishing, footwork and post play as well as defensive concepts will be explored and practiced. We encourage budding inside players and those athletes who want to enhance a specialist skill set to attend. Play big, play hard, be tenacious and smart and rack up those statistics!
From a young age, athletes aspire to be the next big name in basketball. The position of Guard is one that is seen as a leader of the team, learning how to dribble is only a small part of the Guard’s skillset. This camp will focus on what it takes to be a Guard, how to develop basketball IQ to make the position your own. Fast paced and multi-skilled this camp will teach a player how to push a ball up court, how to handle, pass and read the court. A Guard has to play for the team or the team will not play for the Guard. Decision- making and being assertive are just two of the important components of a Guard’s game, knowing when to drive, pass and shoot, and how to bring other players into a game are key components of this camp. Taught by experienced coaches, Panther Hoops will provide drills, exercises, and games to explore the Guard position and expose the importance of truly understanding what makes a college level guard.
Skills Camps are a fundamental in any players development. Panther Hoops Coaches bring decades of experience and are dedicated to provide athletes with every opportunity to be the best they can. This camp will keep the athletes busy, a fast paced and comprehensive look at the fundamental skills required to play basketball can be expected. Skills of ball handling, defensive footwork and positioning, shooting, passing, and court movement and positioning are all fundamental skills that will developed. As the athlete’s progress this will become more challenging, looking to maximise and extend the capability of each player. If a student isn’t working hard and pushing themselves they are not getting better, our coaches will expect and encourage each camper to get better. Players will work hard and should expect to participate in a comprehensive program of basketball receiving top quality coaching that can be taken away for individual practice.
