Basketball Camps


First Class Coaches will be hosting a skills and drills camp for boys and girls. The game of basketball transitioning into a positionless game, it is very important that all young athletes learn the fundamentals of the game.


This camp is designed to help athletes work on the fundamentals of basketball (ball handling, footwork, shooting off the catch, shooting off the dribble, and in-game training), gain more knowledge about the game, and gain more confidence. Fee includes t-shirt.

Volunteers Wanted

Our basketball program’s success can be directly attributed to the hard work of parent volunteers. Volunteering your time has never been better, with our new list of incentives to reward you for your time such as registration fee reimbursement and coaches polos. We are now accepting volunteer coach applications for our 2016-17 basketball season. Coaches are subject to background checks.
