Basketball

Basketball camp puts the fun in fundamentals!

Camp Details
This camp encourages beginner athletes to develop their basketball skills. Focusing on fundamentals, Coach Jake Shockey and his staff of basketball players are dedicated to skill development and typically cover shooting, ball handling, passing, athleticism, rebounding, dribbling, defense, and other important basketball skills to nurture the total athlete.

Basketball camp is all about improving the skills and fundamentals of campers in a personalized setting. The workouts are hosted in one of Great Lakes Athletic Club’s two full-length basketball courts. The basketball facility has adjustable hoops and all the latest equipment needed to host athletic drills.

Our Coach
Coach Jake Shockey is the former Team Captain of Aquinas College Men’s Basketball and attended Orchard Lake St. Mary’s prep where his 6’4” height made him a powerful Forward for the team. He and his team of basketball professionals provide individual skills training and leadership for players of all levels.

Kids benefit from Shockey’s competitive experience, but also love Coach Shockey’s enthusiastic energy. The camp encourages kids to have fun while improving their athletic skills.
