Since 2006, Basics Camps have offered outstanding skill development and scrimmaging with NO TRAVEL. At Basics, we believe players should work on their skills and conditioning ALL THE TIME but with no travel and wasted opportunities for what really matters: reps, reps, reps.

Training Options

  • Shooting
  • Ball Handling
  • Footwork
  • Conditioning
  • Post Play
  • Free Throws
  • Guard Play
  • Defensive Positioning
  • Private Training, 1 v 1
  • Mental Strength Training
  • NOTE on Private Training: nearly all private training is by appointment.  Please call or text 616 402-1600 if you are interested in 1 v 1 training.  

TIP:  the outdoor coourt is Spring Lake is quite the place!  GREAT setting, 4 goals, terrific Sport Court surface.  Many of West Michigan’s finest players since 2002 have sharpened their skills on this court.   Parents can hang out or take a walk by the lake! 

Fundamentals include passing, dribbling, shooting, footwork, and conditioning. Players will have fun plus learn the game. Camps are limited in size. This training ensures individual player attention and strong reinforcement of the skills. Scrimmaging is part of our summer camp model. 

Of Basics 155 graduates who have gone on to play in college, over 100 have attended our summer camps.

“Guys play way too much in the summer. All they need to do is work on their skills and condition.  That’s it.”  

Coach Tom Izzo, Michigan State University
