What makes our camp special?

Children will experience an inspiring, uplifting, fun training at the Sunshine Heroes Basketball Camp. This camp is designed to bring out the best in children: increased awareness of how to help others, increased respect for sportsmanship, enhanced fundamental athletic skills, and a greater understanding of teamwork and responsibility. The Sunshine Heroes Basketball Camp serves as a foundation for learning important values like strength, respect, courage, kindness, love, sacrifice, and honor, just as much as we provide instruction in ball handling and basketball shooting techniques.

What we teach - Learning Basketball Through Repetition

Repetition is the essential to learning and is used by all the best coaches at every level. Repetition at our basketball camp comes in the form of stations where we perform practice drills. Every day, the majority of time is spent focused on learning the fundamentals of basketball through practicing. The drills used at this level are intended to help young players become better at their individual game. These same drills are used successfully with students as young as age 6 and are practiced routinely even at the professional level.

Contests, Individual Awards, Service Projects, Fun and more

The Sunshine Heroes Basketball Camp has evolved into a well-balanced mix of practice drills, games, service projects and friendly fun. While our players will tell you how hard they work, they will also share with you how much fun they had at camp. Each year we seek to improve our camp to help our student campers have the time of their lives, while at the same time continue learning and growing.
