FULL DAY SPRING &
For 15 years our full-day camps are the longest-running Championship Basketball Academy program and it has grown into one of the most successful basketball camps in the Albuquerque metro area. We offer our full-day camps in the spring & summer. The Championship Basketball Academy Director, Scott Peterson is present at all camp sessions each day. Get ready for lots of energy, fun and skills improvement.
Individual basketball training sessions are 1-on-1 lesson designed to provide a tailored curriculum for your athlete. Our goal is to develop skills, work on weaknesses so they become strengths while improving basketball IQ. Our coaching staff focuses fundamentals, ball-handling, shooting, footwork, explosiveness, strength, agility, while building confidence. Our goal is to help you take your game to a whole new level.
The more basketball players can get quality repetitions at a specific skill, the more likely they will replicate it in a game. This means that if you want your team to be better at finishing around the basket, shooting the basketball, playing as a team, you must be willing to spend the needed time working on it. You must be willing to carve out practice time for basketball drills to work on these different areas that incorporate your whole team. While all this sounds great, it can be hard sometimes to find useful basketball team drills as a new or experienced coach. We can help facilitate and tailor training for you and your team. Contact Coach Peterson for more information.
