First Step: The Camp

COVID-19 Update: With the group gathering size restriction in Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan, we will not offer First Step the Camp in the month of June. The new July and August dates can be found at the bottom of this page. Please note: Our COVID-19 guidelines state we will not allow parents in the facility HOWEVER, for this age group we will allow one parent to stay in the gym while the camp is taking place.  Friday morning is a low traffic time at the facility and this camp will be the only group activity going on at that time. 

First Step: The Camp is designed for players who want to learn the fundamentals of basketball in a FUN environment! The primary focus of First Step is FOOTWORK and FUNDAMENTALS! No matter if it is dribbling or shooting, a player’s footwork can increase their efficiency in both areas. Players will also learn other ball handling moves and shooting technique.

Flexible Schedule: First Step: The Camp is offered on Fridays from 9:00am-10:30am. We understand the summer can be full of travel so at this age we offer flexible pricing that will fit any parents' schedule. Players can sign up for the full 5-weeks or can purchase a “DAY PASS” which will allow them to pick the amount of camp dates that work with mom and dad’s schedules.

If you purchase a “Day Pass” we do ask that you RSVP via email by the Thursday before your player will attend!
