Mission: To teach, develop, and offer youth players the opportunity to learn the fundamental skills of basketball while instilling life-lessons and values such as character, team work, discipline, respect and sportsmanship. Our goal is to empower young athletes to take it to the next level.

Overview: Opportunities are available for a recreational player looking to enhance their skills while playing for fun to an advanced player with a competitive desire and passion to become a complete player both physically and mentally.

Session 1: This session is a recreational-based program designed to introduce the game of basketball to beginners in Kindergarten all the way through 8th grade. The program focuses on teaching and developing basic fundamental skills, having fun and learning the values of being part of a team and displaying good sportsmanship. This session is open to all kids and skill level with the intent to create equally split teams per division. Practices will vary depending on age. K-2 can expect 1 practice time a week, 3-8th grade can expect 2 practices a week plus weekly games.

Session 2: This session exposes and offers kids a higher level of competition while developing fundamental basketball skills. Player development is stressed and disciplined, team-oriented play is emphasized.

Summer is the time when kids earn their spots on competitive teams. Get a ball in their hands and have fun. And for maximum growth, kids should be doing the drills that coaches have shown them with focus, intensity, and consistency.


Ballers is holding a camp August 15th to 18th at BMS. We are bringing in High School and College coaches to run the camp. The cost is only $10 for 4 days of instruction! Register at

FYI, Ballers realizes that there is a camp at Hames that overlaps Thurs/Fri (15th and16th) for older grades. The Ballers camp was initially scheduled around the Hames camp to maximize the opportunities for kids. Unfortunately, after Ballers locked in dates with gym rental and camp directors, the Hames camp had to move dates. Now the camps overlaps by two days. Fortunately for most kids, it is possible to do both camps.

The Hames camp runs from 9am to 3pm. These times are when Ballers camp has K-6th grade scheduled and since Hames camp is for 6th-12th grade (?), 6th/7th grade appears to be the only schedule conflict. If older kids have enough energy, they can actually participate in both camps. It could also be possible to attend part of the time since the Ballers camp runs through Sunday the 18th.
