Nike Basketball Camp
Campers are evaluated on the courts and placed into smaller groups based on their age and ability. Sport Instruction is approximately 3.5 hours per day. All skill levels welcome. 10:1 athlete, coach ratio. Training includes everything from fundamental skill enhancement through drills, scrimmages, and full court play, as well as court visualization and team communication training.
ELS Language Classes
The ELS language program help students develop their speaking and conversational English skills in and out of the classroom. Different from more intensive programs, which focus heavily on grammar, these sessions focus on engaging students in an active use of English. Using sports as the common theme, professional ELS instructors use video and rich media sources to generate natural conversation, and to encourage this practice outside the classroom with their American teammates, coaches and staff. Offered daily the two 50 minute classes enable each student to fully engage in a full day of sports while practicing their English and grammar in a non-threatening environment. Campers are evaluated at the first class. Classes are formed/grouped based on speaking proficiency and age. Program is appropriate for beginner, and intermediate levels. Classes offered Monday – Friday. (See sample schedule below.)
