Camp's Description

Your children will experience the most intense, fun, invigorating basketball training with Advantage Basketball Camps. These camps are designed to bring out the best in children: increased respect for sportsmanship, enhanced fundamental athletic abilities, and a deeper understanding of teamwork and responsibility. Advantage Basketball Camps also prepares young players, ages 8-18, for high school and college.

Formerly known as Baden Youth Sports Camps, Advantage Basketball Camps was founded in 1987 by Michael Hummel based on the philosophy that children need attention and direction in their lives. This basketball coaching method does just that. Advantage Basketball Camps serves as a basis for learning important life lessons like self-confidence and the value of self-discipline, just as much as they provide instruction in ball handling and basketball shooting techniques. Our mission is to teach children using the most effective methods to help them be their best on the basketball court and beyond.

Prior to starting Advantage Basketball Camps, founder Michael Hummel was himself a student of the best coaches and professional examples. For example, Dave Immel, a UCLA star and Portland Trailblazer, was instrumental in the development of the Advantage Basketball Camps’ method for teaching shooting skills. The story of “Pistol” Pete Maravich contributed to the focus on repetitive drills in dribbling and ball handling.

Meetings with top high school, college, and Olympic coaches and trainers led to the understanding that young players and experienced professionals alike need continual focus on the basic fundamentals of the game. Consultations with specialists in education helped design programs that stimulate and motivate children to learn.

Advantage Basketball Camps December 26, 2006

This camp is one of the best ball handling camps in the country. Most camps are daycare services and this camp was anything but that. I have put my kids in many camps and they were all fun but this camp was by far the best. The camp was allot of hard work but it produced great results. Both my son and daughter improved there ball handling skills dramatically. The camp was taught by professional and college players which was a nice change from the high school kids we got at other camps. We would highly recommend this camp to anyone.
