At Watts Basketball, we pride ourselves on planting a seed for long-term success in athletics and life. Our camps ensure that your child has a great time with friends in a fun and competitive environment while developing the fundamentals to become successful on and off the court.
Every day, we have the opportunity to watch players grow while attending our camps. It’s an incredible experience that motivates us to continue working to develop their athletic skill and personal character
Our camps provide the right balance of success, failures, challenges, and rewards. We do all of this while providing the most essential ingredient for youth sports enjoyment….FUN.
Basketball is a team sport and camp is a great way to get better with teammates, and make new friends at the same time.
Each day we focus on one skill at a time, and then teach your child how they all work together. We want to teach the fundamentals in stages, so they feel success, and build love for the game.
When our campers master new skills, we remind them of the hard work they put in. Hard work = results. It’s a mental connection that can last a lifetime.
