Coach Bob Hurley Skills Camp June 29-July 3

Our first Coach Bob Hurley camp of the summer is now in the books and we had a great group of campers with us in the Pocono’s. This week consisted of skills and instruction on the court and during game from Coach Hurley and an elite group of High School and College coaches. This was both a fun and competitive camp comprised of many talented players looking to improve their game. On Tuesday, we finished off the night with Coach Hurley’s annual “Tournament of Champions”, beginning with Free-throw, Hot Shot, and 1 on 1 championship’s and ending with exciting play in the All-Star games. Coach Hurley brought in Mike Kelly from Hoops 101 to talk to our group about the fundamentals of footwork and how to use it to one’s advantage throughout the game. Mike was very dynamic in his talk, putting campers through a pro-style workout. Hall of Fame coach Herb Magee, also came to speak about the fundamentals of shooting, how to improve one’s consistency with their shot, and the proper ways to practice shooting.

This week was my first experience with Coach Hurley and it definitely was a memorable one. Coach is one of the most knowledgeable people in the world about the game of basketball, but he is also great at finding various ways to teach basketball skills to campers of all ages. Every drill or workout the campers preformed had a specific purpose in improving their game. Coach loves being on the court, interacting with the players, and is always looking to give advice. I am already looking forward to learning more about the game from Coach Hurley during his Girls Camp and second Skills Camp coming up in August.
