Having already conducted a camp geared toward younger players, Angelina College head basketball coach Kyle Manary and his staff are holding a skills development clinic designed to prepare high-school aged hoopsters for the upper levels of the sport.
Manary will hold the three-day “Angelina Elite Camp” for male and female players ages 14-18 from June 20-22 at Angelina College.
“Our goal is that every player leave understanding what high level College and NBA/WNBA basketball is all about,” Manary said in a released statement.” Each group will have their “position specific” time and then we will combine all of the groups to show them how their individual work fits into the team. Every single player will leave our Elite Camp with the drills and knowledge that I have taught to over 120 NBA players and over 100 Division I College All-Americans. Each group will be divided into guards, wings and bigs. We will teach each group to master their position individually then within team concepts.”
The cost of the camp is $75 for all three days. Campers are responsible for their own lunches.
Skills addressed include ball handling, passing, floaters, weak-hand development, NBA ball screen reads, positional game shooting, one-on- one NBA/WNBA moves, three-on- three spacing and playing off penetration, among others.
Players are encouraged to bring their own basketballs, shoes, a reversible jersey, shorts and whatever else he or she would bring for a gym workout.
Each day’s schedule will follow the format listed below:
9-11 a.m. – Guards/Wings
11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. – Bigs
3-5 p.m. – Combination work with guards, wings and bigs
Manary, whose basketball background includes working with and developing more than 120 NBA players such as Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul and others, will offer a free advanced-skills clinic from 9-11 a.m. on Saturday, May 21 at the old gymnasium on the Angelina College campus. Manary also worked with the Dallas Mavericks and spent time as a Division I assistant coach.
