Paul Biancardi Basketball Camp | Pro Skills Basketball

We recently powered the first Paul Biancardi Basketball Camp of the fall season outside of Charlotte, NC in Concord on September 1-2 at Cox Mill High School.

Previously, we ran a Biancardi Camp last May in Charlotte that had a tremendous amount of talent, and you can read about that camp and see the highlights here!

This September 1-2 camp was another great event with over 70 boys players from 8th-12th grade and a staff made up of current college coaches and former college and pro players.

Coach Paul Biancardi, a former college coach of 20+ years at the DI, DII, and DIII levels and currently ESPN’s National Director of Boys High School Basketball, led the camp and had his hand and eyes in every drill, competition, and game.

On August 17th and 18th, 2018 over 200 campers showed up to the Bronx to participate in the Kemba Walker Basketball Camp.

The camp was completely free for all participants thanks in large part to Kemba Walker himself giving back to his community, but that’s nothing new for Kemba as he won the 2018 NBA Sportsmanship Award!

Kemba Walker Basketball Camp powered by Pro Skills BasketballKemba’s overwhelming message to the campers was to believe in yourself and don’t give up on your dreams.
