What kid doesn’t dream about playing on an NBA basketball court. Since the Meadowlands YMCA’s gymnasium is the former Nets practice facility and still has the original floor and backboards, you can actually practice like a Pro. Campers will have the chance to hone their skills while learning the values of teamwork and sportsmanship. Children will be grouped according to age. We offer an atmosphere of fun and fitness for young maturing athletes to learn the love of the game and grow in confidence through skills development and team building activities.
June 26 – July 21 (Weeks 2 – 5)
When kids play sports, they get more than just exercise. Besides being physically healthier, they have higher self-esteem and a healthier body image. Our sports camps emphasize healthy competition, teamwork and individual development, and most of all...fun! We focus on the life lessons to be learned from sports, and our counselors strive to instill positive self-image in each player. Sports Galore is a combination of many different sports including basketball, tennis, soccer, football, volleyball, swimming, and non-traditional sports. Campers are divided into appropriate age groups to engage in drills, skills and scrimmages. Required Items: water bottle, athletic attire & sneakers
July 24 – Aug 18 (Weeks 6 – 9)
The focus of this camp is to improve your child’s technique through a series of fun basketball challenges and drills. Skills covered during the week include: dribbling, passing, shooting, movement on and off the ball, offense and defense principals, and small-sided game play.
