The academy runs April through September and is open to young people grades 4-12.Through focused, one-on-one and small group instruction over the course of six months, players work on the basketball fundamentals of shooting, passing and dribbling. They also learn body movement and general athleticism, the science of speed and movement, sports psychology and more. There are three, one-hour sessions per week and players are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions as their schedule allows. For more information, please visit:

In the fall and the spring, we host one-day intensive camps designed for players who are motivated to play college basketball. Our elite camp is a great way to meet our coaches, current players and learn about our program and University. Of our current roster, seven attended our Elite Camps while high school seniors.

We direct the annual NIKE basketball camp at UC Santa Cruz. An overnight camp, with either a 4 day option of 3 day option, participants are taught the full spectrum of skills needed to be a succesful basketball player. For more information, please visit:
