bruins camps 2019

August 1-3, 2019


Our team camp is focused on providing a great competitive experience while exposing teams to the Bruins athletic philosophy of using athletics to impact lives in a positive manner for Christ.  A unique aspect of our camp is the opportunity to have your team practice with a member of our staff to work on a part of the game of each team’s choosing.   The camp allows high school age athletes the opportunity to be taught correct fundamentals by college coaches and athletes while enjoying the beautiful air-conditioned facilities of the Davis Field House.  Our Bruin basketball players will interact with campers to inspire and guide them in their love for the game of basketball while also encouraging them to take the next step spiritually.  The goal of this camp is to expose campers to our program’s philosophy, personnel, and atmosphere while challenging campers on the court with offensive and defensive skills and strategies.  Classroom and film sessions will be included to emphasize the mental aspect of the game.
