Gotta stay hydrated when you’re a basketball player!

To start off the day at SBA camp, campers will participate in warm-ups, drills and scrimmages. After all this campers will be given their lunch breaks to rest and build up more energy for all the activities which will be done in the afternoon. Afternoons basketball activities are played for technique training, they play dodgeball, arts and crafts and finish the day off with some reading.
