Day 1 of the NIKE Girls Camp at Blessed Trinity High School

Posted by Chris Langley | Monday, June 6, 2011 | Category: , , |

Day 1 of the NIKE Girls Basketball Camp at Blessed Trinity High School saw campers working hard to improve on individual skills in their morning stations. Stations included skills from perimeter moves to team defense. One fundamental skill coaches emphasized more than others was rebounding. Specifically, the idea that "when the ball goes up, hands go up."

To make sure that players are always ready for a missed shot as it comes off the rim or the back board, players were taught to have their hands up as soon as they see a shooter release a shot. With their hands high they are almost ready for any type of missed shot.

Players worked hard to use this rebounding technique in their 5 on 5 and 3 on 3 games, but because it was a new skill to some players, we will continue to work on it until it becomes second nature. We are consistantly focused on improving players skills by 1% daily at camp!
