About the Camp
The Paul Biancardi Basketball Camp is for serious players who want to grow in the game. We want each camper to be the best version of themselves. Players will need to be focused and attentive to details as we teach them aspects of individual and team play. We will put campers in competitive situations with limited time making it a no-nonsense camp that stresses effort, improvement, and team play.
Players will take part in individual and group/team drills to increase their basketball skills and IQ as well as games where they’ll be able to put their skills to the test and see where they stack up against the competition. Our goal is to prepare players for future competition and challenges.
It’s the offseason, so it’s time to take the next step. If you love the game, want to improve your game, and learn the game, then come and join us!
