Stephen Cramer Basketball Camps

Location: Community Center Gymnasium

*Registration online at:


Game Reads Camp

Game Reads is about gaining a better understanding of game situations and reading the opponent.  13 ball screen reads.  Off the ball screen reads.  Transaction situations.  Drive and draw game and more.  Players will have the opportunity to try out key defensive and offensive concepts to make the game harder on the opposition.  Coach Cramer will also cover key footwork principles necessary to make any player more efficient.



Shooting Camp

This camp breaks down shooting from the foundation to the fingertips on the follow through.  Players will leave camp with the knowledge, drills and improved skills to become the shot maker that every team needs.  Many players can shoot in practice but cannot take and make game shots.  This camp provides game situation drills and details making players more comfortable taking and making game shots, whether it be off the catch, dribble, read without the ball and more.


Attack Skills Camp

Attack Skills camp focuses solely on the ball where players can create for themselves and others as well as providing extensive detail in finishing around the basket.  This camp covers correct body positioning and manipulation of the defense.  Players will leave the camp with a better understanding of the offensive reads and a more efficient and skilled offensive game.  Players will learn footwork finishes, giving those with less athletic ability and size the ability to finish around them.



Finishing and Shooting Camp

Regardless of size and position, every player needs to be able to finish at the basket.  Many players can get to there, but few can consistently finish or make the right play.  This camp gives each player a better understanding of how to read the defense, create for others, and finish at the hoop.  This camp also covers a wide variety of shooting skills and drills to allow players to be more comfortable with their shot in a game situation.
