The 2nd Annual Green Light Basketball Shooting Camp returns to Las Positas College this summer for 4 days of hoops and fun!
Every kid wants to be able to shoot like Stephen Curry or Kevin Durant, but understanding the concepts that make them so successful requires attentive and competent coaching. Campers will learn all the skills involved in becoming a great shooter and build confidence along the way as they receive encouragement and guidance from certified youth and college coaches. While this camp is shooting intensive, we will also spend time working on ball handling moves to get open for shots as well as reading and reacting to the defense to make good decisions on the floor.

What Parents Are Saying
"My son has attended basketball camp at Las Positas for the past two years and it has been his favorite week of the summer! Coach Jordan and his camp staff do a great job keeping it fun with the kids and teaching them a lot about basketball. My son Jacob was excited to come home each day and show me a new move he learned at camp. I know he can't wait to be back again next year!" -Tiffany B.
"I heard about the shooting camp last year from a good friend in the CYO community. My son attended camp and loved it. He learned a good deal about shooting and enjoyed the coaches. There's not enough good camps like this in the Tri-Valley area." -Scott P.
"My son Daniel attended this camp last summer and really enjoyed it." -Mary C.
"My daughter was one of only a few girls at the Las Positas Camp, but she had a wonderful time. I signed her up with her brother and they had a blast every day. Coach Stokley was her favorite and took time to work with her individually. Also Coach Jordan was very organized and nice. It was overall a very well-put together camp and we will be back again next summer." -Rachel S.
