At the Kenny Smith Basketball Camp, players have the unique opportunity to learn firsthand from one of the NBA's greatest point guards!
The Kenny Smith summer youth basketball camps are exciting fundamental skills camps for boys and girls of all skill levels from 8-17 years of age.
Kenny Smith, a 10-year NBA veteran and 2-time Houston Rocket NBA World Championship player, conducts the daily schedule of activities and provides on-the-court instruction and demonstrations.
Unlike other camps where NBA players may only drop by for a quick visit or photo op, Kenny attends his camp everyday and interacts with the players. It is part of his commitment to provide a positive role model and leadership to young people.
The camp's mission is developing fundamental basketball skills. Campers learn ball handling, triple threat, post moves, rebounding, court spacing, passing, defensive keys, team offense and defense, sportsmanship, and team concepts.
The importance of maintaining a positive attitude, staying in school, and saying no to drugs and alcohol is also emphasized.
Regardless of skill or experience level, players will find drills appropriate for them. Basic drills are the same for all skill levels, but players with more ability are given higher-level drills and ball handling moves.
