Breakthrough Basketball Elite Youth Scoring Camp
Jul 21 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

We’re pleased to announce that we have arranged for David Baker to come to Spokane, Washington to run a 3-day skill development camp for youth and middle school players. This is a youth and middle school camp for players looking to develop an advanced scoring and playmaking skill set.

You will learn:

  • Game like shooting drills to drive up your shooting percentage.
  • How to create more uncontested shots with dribble moves that create at least 2-3 feet of separation from your defender.
  • Advanced hand-eye coordination and ball handling drills that will accelerate your feel for the basketball. These drills will make dribbling during game situations feel easy.
  • How to develop an explosive first step. This is probably one of the most important aspects of being a playmaker, but it is rarely broken down and taught properly. Learn about the proper shin angle, head position, shoulder position, and hip position.
  • Advanced finishing moves will be taught, such as finishing with the inside hand, wrong/goofy foot, taking away defenders angle by using the rim and making a defender go through you to get a traditional 3 point play.
  • Critical components of basketball IQ required to become a great offensive player from an individual and team aspect.
  • How the top pros create advantages which allow them to make plays for themselves and their teammates.

Here are some of the topics covered throughout the camp:

  • How to stay in attack mode, dictate the tempo, and control the defense.

Shooting

  • How to position your feet and align your body to increase the chance of shooting the ball straight.
  • A form shooting routine that almost every great shooter has utilized that can be done at home.
  • Proper footwork and how to develop a quick release.
  • How to shoot game shots from game spots at game speeds.

Finishing

  • Finishing techniques used to reduce turnovers, finish over larger players in the paint, and make more shots.
  • How to finish through contact.
  • 1 on 1 finishing drills that ingrain good habits while competing in a fun way.

Offense

  • How to cut and get open. You will learn v-cuts, basket cuts, l-cuts, backdoor cuts, and more.
  • Attacking down screens, back screens, and more.
  • How to score and make plays using ball screens. Learn how to run defenders into screens and make lightning quick decisions.
  • How to use dribble hand off actions to attack the defense and put them in a constant disadvantage.

Footwork

  • How to use your feet to gain a better position to score from almost anywhere on the floor.
  • Utilize front pivots, reverse pivots, step throughs, sweeps, drop steps, and hops to make you an elite player.

Passing

  • Improve hand eye-coordination and passing skills that make players like Chris Paul one of the best playmakers in the game.
  • Competitive passing drills to develop game-like passing with head and pass fakes.
  • How to be strong and pass out of double teams and traps.

Competitive Play and Controlled Scrimmages

Players will also get to take the skills they practiced and apply them in a game setting. This is a way fun to improve through competition.

The games are set up, so the players have to give maximum effort and execute proper fundamentals. Point systems are set up, so players develop great habits that will help them succeed at the next level.

CAMP CANCELED for 2020

This is a 3 day basketball camp in Spokane, Washington that will teach you the essential skills, techniques, habits, IQ and drills to become an elite player (to develop an elite mindset, which is what truly separates players.).

What will players get out of the camp?

You will learn what it takes to play at the elite level. Becoming an individual that can help your team succeed and understands the importance of the little things.

You will improve your ball handling, shooting, passing, athleticism, decision-making, leadership skills, and scoring.

Our Breakthrough Staff has trained some of the best players in the world that have gone on to become Olympic Gold Medalists, NBA All-Stars, WNBA All-Stars, Elite College Players (Michigan State, Duke, Kentucky – to name a few), and Numerous Player of the Year Awards at the high school level.

And you will learn the subtle and sometimes unnoticeable things that are taught to and used by the world’s best players; players like Steph Curry, Maya Moore, Russell Westbrook, Diana Taurasi, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Kyrie Irving, and others.

Who is this for? Is this good for players who are NOT guards?

This is NOT for beginners. This is for intermediate to advanced players looking to be placed in a high-intensity environment with competitive drills. The camp is for players who already possess some good dribble moves and are looking to take their game to the next level.

This is certainly not limited to guards. Every coach would love to have 5 players on the floor with the skills, decision-making, and leadership of elite guards.

So if you are a wing player or a post player who is serious about elevating your game to the next level, this camp would be great for you as well.

Here are a few things that you will learn at the camp:

Develop an explosive first step

This is probably one of the most important aspects of being an elite guard, but it is rarely broken down and taught properly. Learn about the proper shin angle, head position, shoulder position, and hip position.

Develop superior hand-eye coordination and feel for the ball

In this camp, you will be challenged with advanced hand-eye coordination and dribbling drills that will challenge you and accelerate your feel for the basketball. These drills will make dribbling during game situations feel easy.

How to handle game situations like Chris Paul & Steph Curry

Chris Paul and Steph Curry are two of the smartest players currently in the NBA. We have studied the games of these guards and will show tactics and little tricks that these elite guards use during games.

For example, whenever Chris Paul and Steph Curry face a switch on a ball screen and they get a bigger slower defender on them, they almost always take two big dribbles backwards to create space and give them room to get forward momentum to attack the bigger, slower defender. Little tips like these will take you from being a good guard to an elite guard.

You will learn how they handle ball screens, fast break situations, double teams, and aggressive pressure.

Get to the next level by improving the lost art of passing.

Not only will you learn advanced dribbling drills that will be extremely challenging, we will also introduce passing drills that will make you a much better passer in game-like situations. We will teach how to pass against pressure, how to read the defense and find the open guy, how to pass in transition, how to pass against double teams, and how to pass into the post.

If you can handle the ball and make great passes, every coach will find a place for you on their team.

How to play great defense and lock down your opponent like Kawhi Leonard by learning the strategies he uses

You will learn how to properly move on the floor so you can make things much more difficult for your opponents. If you can focus on defense, stop your opponent from scoring, you will get playing time because your coach can’t afford to keep you off the floor. You will learn proper body position when guarding the ball, how to dictate what the offense does, and how to force them into low percentage scoring situation. We will teach you how to adapt to all of the different kinds of scoring guards to put the advantage back in your hands.

Video Breakdown Analysis of Elite Players

You will get to see video breakdown analysis of some of the best basketball players in the world. You will see how they execute certain skills and make decisions on the basketball floor, so you apply it to your practice sessions to elevate to an even higher level of play.

Shooting, scoring, and advanced dribble moves

In addition, we will practice game-like shooting drills, scoring from the guard position, and advanced dribble moves that all great guards possess.

Leadership and Life Skills that LeBron James uses to help his teammates develop a championship mindset

In addition to teaching you the necessary physical and mental skills to be a great guard, we will teach you leadership and life skills that will make you a successful human being. We will teach you traits that some of the best players have, why that makes them successful, and how these same traits will help you be successful in life.

We will also teach you traits from some of the most successful people outside of the basketball world that will make you successful in the real world in any career path you may choose.

No matter how far you make in the athletic world, there is always life after basketball.

Who can attend?

The camp is for male and female players from 7th to 12th grade.

This is not limited to guards. If you’re a wing player or a post player who is serious about elevating your game to the next level, this camp would be great for you as well.

This camp is NOT for beginners. This is for intermediate to advanced players looking to be placed in a high-intensity environment with competitive drills. This is for players who already possess some good dribble moves and are looking to take their game to the next level.

Coaches that want to learn and pick up new drills can also observe for a fee (coaches can find more info below).

We will teach you how to adapt to all of the different kinds of scoring guards to put the advantage back in your hands.

Video Breakdown Analysis of Elite Players

You will get to see video breakdown analysis of some of the best basketball players in the world. You will see how they execute certain skills and make decisions on the basketball floor, so you apply it to your practice sessions to elevate to an even higher level of play.

Shooting, scoring, and advanced dribble moves

In addition, we will practice game-like shooting drills, scoring from the guard position, and advanced dribble moves that all great guards possess.

Leadership and Life Skills that LeBron James uses to help his teammates develop a championship mindset

In addition to teaching you the necessary physical and mental skills to be a great guard, we will teach you leadership and life skills that will make you a successful human being. We will teach you traits that some of the best players have, why that makes them successful, and how these same traits will help you be successful in life.

We will also teach you traits from some of the most successful people outside of the basketball world that will make you successful in the real world in any career path you may choose.

No matter how far you make in the athletic world, there is always life after basketball.

Who can attend?

The camp is for male and female players from 7th to 12th grade.

This is not limited to guards. If you’re a wing player or a post player who is serious about elevating your game to the next level, this camp would be great for you as well.

This camp is NOT for beginners. This is for intermediate to advanced players looking to be placed in a high-intensity environment with competitive drills. This is for players who already possess some good dribble moves and are looking to take their game to the next level.

Coaches that want to learn and pick up new drills can also observe for a fee (coaches can find more info below).
