General Info


At the Chris Collins Basketball Camp, our focus is as much on the development of fundamental basketball skills as it is on general life skills that our campers can apply to life off the court.

Each day, our campers will learn about the importance of sportsmanship and team play from Coach Collins, his staff and other members of the Northwestern Basketball family. Through station work, coaches will focus on teaching such skills as ball handling, passing, shooting and defense. Campers will then have the opportunity to apply these lessons in game play, where they will be grouped by age and ability.

Each day will then conclude with a motivational talk from a member of the Northwestern Basketball staff. On Friday, the last day of camp, awards will be given to the daily contest winners and an overall contest champion will be crowned in front of the entire camp.

Camp will then conclude with one final team meeting with Coach Collins.

We look forward to having you join Coach Collins and the Northwestern Basketball family for a week of instruction, competition and fun this summer! Go Wildcats!
