Girls Basketball Camps & Clinics

Grades 1-12

Our camp philosophy is designed to help players of all ages and abilities improve their game, become better team players, develop leadership skills and have a meaningful and fun camp experience. This is more than just a basketball camp. Our Blugold coaches and players — proven leaders on and off the court — have fine-tuned the art of developing the integrity and skills of young athletes through outstanding instruction, demonstration and positive reinforcement.

Our camps take the unique approach of addressing the whole student-athlete, with significant focus on character and team-building lessons in combination with superior basketball instruction. More than half of all registrations are returning campers — parents and coaches love how these camps shape confident, strong young female athletes.

The Blugold Girls' Basketball and Leadership camps are designed to help players of all ages and abilities improve their basketball skills, develop leadership ability and have a meaningful camp experience. The goal of the camps is to develop a well-rounded basketball player and person. From the highly skilled to the beginning player, each camper will be challenged to improve her basketball skills through individual and team instruction.  Each camper will receive individual attention to improve specific skill areas.

To promote personal growth and competitive league play, campers will be placed with other players of similar age and grade levels.

In addition to basketball, campers will also participate in motivational sessions with coaches and college players designed to develop leadership, discipline, focus, sportsmanship, and a broader appreciation for the game.

The experienced Blugold Camp coaching staff is concerned, first and foremost, with the welfare of each camper. If you want to work hard, become a better basketball player, improve your leadership skills, meet new friends and have a great camp experience, attend the Blugold Girls' Basketball and Leadership Camp!

    • Quality Instruction: Our coaches teach well. Fundamentals are emphasized throughout our camps in offensive/defensive/shooting practice sessions and league play.
    • Campers are placed with players of similar age and grade levels.
    • Friends who attend camp will have opportunities to work with each other during fundamentals.
    • Campers will participate in motivational sessions with Blugold players and coaches designed to develop leadership, discipline, focus, sportsmanship and an appreciation for the game.
    • Great female role models: The camp staff consists of the Blugold Coaching staff along with current and former Blugold women's basketball players.
    • High retention: More than half the campers each year have attended previous Blugold camps.
    • Camp staff is professional, organized, caring and fun
Are athletic trainers and medical staff available at camp?

Yes, a first responder will be on site and available throughout the camp as a member of the camp staff.

If I register for camp within a week of camp beginning, should I still mail my medical consent form?

Please bring your medical consent form to check-in rather than mailing it if there is a chance it may not be received prior to camp beginning.

Should I bring a ball?

It is not necessary to bring a ball to camp. We will supply all basketballs.

Is there a camp store?

Yes, we do have a camp store! We encourage all campers to check out our wide variety of gear available at the registration table of each session. We accept cash and checks.

Our daughter really loved the entire camp but I know that she really enjoys being challenged and the leadership discussions.
