Brook Hill’s three-on-three camp is aimed to provide youth an opportunity to develop their basketball skills in a fun environment, focused on improving skill levels by focusing on individual skill development and implementing those skills in a three-on-three setting.

Emphases at the camp will be placed on teamwork, leadership, and fundamentals while challenging each kid to get outside of their comfort zone.

The Brook Hill three-on-three basketball camps and tournaments offer exciting, affordable opportunities to enhance individual and team skills. The smaller team size increases offensive and defensive opportunities for each player through basic fundamental team play, such as give-and-go’s, back door cuts, pick and rolls, and more. The intent of this format is to provide a fun, competitive learning environment for all players.

The camp will be directed by Ivan Johnson, who brings 15 years of camp experience and has worked at Baylor Basketball Camps with other coaches and Baylor Bear and Lady Bear athletes. Johnson was a college player in Oklahoma and has coached basketball on the middle and upper school level for 16 years.

The camp allows for opportunities for boys and girls from third through 12th grade. Cost for the camp will be $30 per player or $100 per team of up to four players, and includes a T-shirt for winning teams in each division.

Each team can have up to four players on its roster who have registered their team by the predetermined entry deadline on Monday, June 25.
