We're excited to announce that we have secured a gym in Des Moines, Iowa and have arranged for Don Kelbick to conduct a 2 day shooting camp teaching players the same shooting skills and strategies that he uses with pro players like Joe Johnson, Raja Bell, Bruce Bowen, Carlos Arroyo, and dozens of other NBA and European players.

This is an incredible opportunity for both players and coaches to spend 2 days with Don Kelbick learning the same strategies that the pros use.

This camp is for serious players - both boys and girls.

What Will Players Get out of the Shooting Camp?

In the camp you will learn...
  • Shooting technique and fundamentals
  • How to improve your shooting accuracy
  • How to develop a QUICKER release (without sacrificing accuracy)
  • Improve your shooting mentality and confidence
  • How to workout on your own
  • Improve your footwork and develop a better shooting foundation
  • Improve your shooting off the dribble
  • Learn how to get open and score on the move
  • How to become a better shooter and score more points

Format of the Camp

Each day players will receive shooting instruction and then practice what they have learned. Players will take LOTS of shots!

By the end of the camp, each player should take close to a thousand shots.

This shooting camp will teach virtually all aspects of shooting... however a key emphasis will be technique, footwork, mentality, and high repetitions.

Significant time will be spent on improving mentality, confidence, and mental toughness. Mentality is a huge part of shooting and Don Kelbick is one of the best at improving mentality and developing great shooters.

Coach Kelbick has trained some of the all time best 3-pt shooters in the NBA.

What Will Coaches Learn?

You will learn the same things as the players. As an "observing coach" you can view the entire camp and take notes. You'll pick up lots of new drills, fundamentals, and strategies that will give you an edge over the competition. We guarantee you will learn lots of new things from Don Kelbick.

Who is Don Kelbick?

Don Kelbick is a long time contributor to developing dozens of articles, products, and providing ongoing consultation for the site.

Don Kelbick is also an NBA development coach that works with players like Joe Johnson, Bruce Bowen, Raja Bell, and many others. You can see more pictures of Don coaching all of these NBA players here.

Before Don got into individual skill development with NBA players in 2004, he coached at various levels for over 25 years. He was a college head coach for 14 years, Division I assistant for 10 years, and spent 2 years as a high school coach. In 2 years as a high school coach, his teams produced 6 Division I players and was ranked #1 in Florida 28 out of a possible 34 weeks.
