What Players Will Learn
What will players get out of the camp?
We have chosen this camp and Jamal Edwards because of his quality training methods and ability to get results. More than other traditional camps, this camp will provide you with the drills and skills to continue your development beyond your time at camp. BDT drills will be used to build the ideal camp learning environment. You will learn by doing. We will teach you to consistently and deliberately work to improve your performance.

Improve Your Ball handling

Considerable time will be spent on your dribbling and passing skills -- allowing you to reduce turnovers, handle any game situation, improve decision making, and improve overall ball handling skill.

Improve Your 1on1 Moves

You will learn how to beat your defender off the dribble, when to attack, how to create space, and how to develop a more explosive first move. In today's game, so many players misuse the dribble. They use it and lose their advantage against the defense. You will learn how to effectively use the dribble and cover more space with fewer dribbles at a faster pace.

Improve Confidence

During the camp, Coach Oliver will teach the mental aspects of the game, help you build confidence, and become more aggressive. You will learn how to train your mind not just physical skills.

Improve Decision Making

A major emphasis of the camp will be to improve decision making using Chris Oliver's BDT (Basketball Decision Training) methods. You will improve your ability to think and act in decisive ways. The unique decision making drills and skills will help you perform under pressure at the highest level.

Improve Shooting

Shooting is a critical skill to be an effective player. You'll learn keys to effective shooting and experience a variety of shooting drills to help you improve accuracy and ability to score points.

Become More Aggressive

One of the biggest benefits to the BDT training camp is the development of a confident attacking mindset. The drills, tools, and knowledge you'll receive at the camp will help you become more aggressive and assertive in games.

Improve Speed & Agility

Throughout the camp, Coach Oliver will integrate speed and agility drills to help you improve defense, your first step, and overall agility.

Finishing Moves

With a ball in your hands throughout most of the camp, you'll get opportunities to improve your finishing moves and ability to finish at the basket. You'll learn what to do with the ball after you beat your defender and how to score more points.
Campers will leave with a better sense of self and a better understanding of what it takes to be successful in basketball and, in turn, every aspect of life. We will address technical, tactical and applied aspects of basketball that will help a player develop their game beyond the level they are currently at.

What is BDT (Basketball Decision Training)?

In this camp you will improve your overall skills like ball handling and shooting -- however a big emphasis of the camp will be "decision making"...
Players will learn when to pass, when to shoot, when to dribble, when to drive, angles to take, how to be more aggressive, and more.
The BDT methods will:
  • Train the mind of players to make faster decisions within the practice environment
  • Improve the ability to think and act in decisive ways
  • Develop a confident attacking mindset
  • Learn how to train your mind not just physical skills
  • Identification, cause and correction of the most common fundamental errors
  • Knowledge of the skills necessary to catch, shoot, dribble and attack on offense
  • Game-like understanding of the application of perimeter offensive skills
During the camp, Coach will use decision training drills and rhythm clapping to enhance the teaching of basketball's most important offensive skills - shooting, passing, dribbling and 1 on 1 moves. Combining decision training with rhythmic clapping enhances the learning experience for the player due to:
  • Increases in motivation
  • Stimulation of creativity
  • Development of an awareness of basketball rhythm
  • Repetition of all the fundamentals without getting bored
  • Work is done with effortless concentration
  • Development and refinement of basketball skills at game speed
  • Awareness of the continual possibility of improvement
Coaches will promote a fun and safe environment that encourages positive and purposeful learning experiences

Unique Camp that Gets Results

As you can see, this is a unique camp that will be unlike other camps you've been to. The use of BDT methods, and coach's unique style, makes for a VERY intense yet fun atmosphere.
We have chosen this coach because of his quality training methods and ability to get results.
More than other traditional camps, this camp will provide you with the drills and skills to continue your development beyond your time at camp.

Who is the Camp For?

This is for SERIOUS basketball players that want to get better. You can play games anywhere, so we focus on things you can't just pick up anywhere. We focus on developing skills that will make you better!
