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.
