- This camp is designed for beginners with a focus on teaching the very basic fundamental basketball skills while providing a positive and fun environment. Campers will be taught by Cincinnati’s basketball coaches, players, and managers. Each day, campers will participate in various drills, lectures, stations, contests, and 5 on 5 games. Each day we will focus on ball handling, shooting, dribbling, passing, rebounding, and defending.

- Campers will be placed teams according to age and grade level. Please make sure the age at camp and grade level for the upcoming year are correct during the registration process. Each team will
have 8-10 campers. In some cases, players are traded among teams to help balance the competition. Also, if a camper plays above the level of his age group he may be moved to an older group. Camp coaches, not parents will make this decision.
