Our Nike Boys Basketball Camp at Rockhurst University is our flagship event .  While most camps over-emphasize skills and drills we are focusing also on preparing youth for the demanding life of a playing a sport at the collegiate level.  Campers will endure a day of intense, college level on court training with a unique mix of classroom informational sessions as well.  In the classroom we discuss issues such as social media literacy as it pertains to students' image and the image of the college or university that they may attend. College coaches look at players social media in the way a job may view a potential candidates information. We also discuss how body language can be perceived by coaches and scouts as well as the characteristics of a leader on the court.  We also offer Q & A sessions with college coaches for parents that are available to participate. 

This camp is for aspiring college athletes, it is designed to challenge students mentally and physically giving them a peak into what it takes to play at the next level.  The camp is held on the beautiful campus of Rockhurst University.  Lunch will be provided.  Campers will be accompanied by adults as they walk to and from on the campus like real college students.

We will end each day with games such as a skills competition where players will implement the use of skill in a competitive environment.  We maintain a 8:1 camper to instructor ratio to ensure each student gets the most out of their camp experience.  Each player receives official NIKE camp gear and brochure.  This Inspire camp is a perfect mix of athletics and academics to prepare students for back to school. 

This event will be held on the campus of Rockhurst University near the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri.
