Denver Nuggets Basketball Training Camp

 

This weekly basketball camp features skills, drills and a variety of games – participants should come expecting to work hard, get multiple reps in, and improve their basketball fundamentals.  Each night features a variety of skill work, such as: improving your 1-on-1 skills, when to effectively use the dribble, team offense skills (give and go, cut and replace), blocking out help side defense, and more! Weekly clinicians will serve as guest coaches and run the participants through each workout.  Want to play games? We have them – each night will include 3on3, 4on4 or 5on5 live games.  See the camp breakdown and featured speakers below. Come ready to compete!
