Athletic Camps

Boys & Girls Basketball

The goal of the Holy Cross Basketball Camp is to develop a complete basketball player. This is achieved by teaching proper fundamentals of the game in a positive, encouraging environment. Sportsmanship, teamwork, confidence and individual drive are the keys to enjoying success both on and off the basketball court. These qualities will be emphasized in safe, supervised and enjoyable surroundings by our Holy Cross Coaches and alumni college athletes. Campers will be placed in groups based upon age and ability to ensure fair competition. All campers receive a personalized skills evaluation from their coach at the end of the week and parents are invited on the last day of each session for the Parent’s Free Throw Contest, camp playoffs, and awards ceremony.
