"OUR MOST SUCCESSFUL TEAMS WERE MADE UP OF PLAYERS THAT PUT THE TEAM BEFORE THEMSELVES. WE BELIEVE THAT TEAM BEATS TALENT."
– Coach Tim Fries
TEAM ABOVE SELF
Our high-intensity, drill camp not only focuses on improving your player's on-court skill set, but also builds character and confidence needed to become a top level athlete both on and off the court.
We help players improve: shooting, ball handling, decision making, footwork, leadership and more.
Our mission is to emphasize the importance of teamwork above all else, in a fun and organized learning environment.
Our camp is for 2nd – 8th grade boys of all skill levels.
