Summer Basketball Camps

Summer Basketball Camps 2018

Summer Camp information for 2018 will be updated as we receive the information from the Varsity Staffs and others.  The information listed on this page will give you an idea of what basketball opportunities there are in the Prior Lake Basketball Community.


There are many opportunities for the youth involved in P.L.A.Y. Basketball to improve their skills over the summer months. The off season is a great time for kids to improve their game. We receive a lot of requests from parents asking what their kids can do over the summer to get better. 

Here are some links to camps and clinics that we feel will help your children improve this summer, many of which are offered in Prior Lake.

Prior Lake Varsity Basketball Camps:
Girls Varsity Camp - Coach Mike Gidley and staff

Girls Completing Grades Kindergarten-9th

This camp is an opportunity for girls in grades Kindergarten-9th to improve their fundamental basketball skills and their overall understanding of the game of basketball.  All young athletes, regardless of age or level of ability, will get a chance to improve their overall skills, and have a great deal of fun during the process!  If you have never been to camp before, this is the year to give it a try! 

Camp Sessions-Please register your child as most recent completed grade level (example: If your daughter was in 7th grade for the 2016-2017 school year please register her at the 7th grade level).

Camp for grades 7th-9th will take place on Monday’s and Wednesday’s in the months of June and July at 8:00 am to 9:00 am, starting June 13th. (excluding July 3rd-6th).  The 7th-9th graders will be joining the Sophomore and Varsity teams for our “Breakfast Club” trainings.  This is a different format than in the past for our 7th-9th graders.  We feel this will enhance the camp experience as well as promote a sense of “Togetherness” between our young and veteran players. The cost for camp for 7th-9th graders will be $110.  Below lists the times and location of these sessions:

8:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m. Grades 7th-9th in the High School Blue Gym.  Note: July 24th and 26th will be at Twin Oaks Jerabek

*Along with participating in camp, we strongly encourage the 7th-9th grade girls to sign up for “Laker Performance”. Coach Gidley and Coach Flatness will be running a strength, speed, and agility training in the mornings from June 12th-July 26th from 7:00-8:00 am before basketball camp at Prior Lake High School (July24th-26th will be at Twin Oaks Middle School).  Registration is on the Prior Lake High School web page.  Click Activities, next click Athletics, then click Laker Performance to register.  Register for “session #1”.  It says 9-12th girls, but it will be 7th-12th girls.  It will run from 7:00-8:00 am at Prior Lake High School (weight room).

Boys Varsity Camp - Coach Bob Schweim & staff

The following camps will be open to those going into 3rd-10th grade and will be broken out accordingly.  Registration form is posted on the right side of the page.


Fundamentals Camp - June 12th-16th at PLHS

3rd-6th Grade from 1:00-2:30PM and 7th-10th Grade from 2:45-4:30PM

The most important of all camps, the fundamentals camp will focus on the basic terminology and skills we use in our boys basketball program.  Dribbling, footwork, correct shooting form, passing, rebounding and defense will be prioritized.  Campers will play fun 3 on 3, 2 on 2, and 5 on 5 games and work through intense station drills with individual coaches. 


Team Concept Camp - June 19th-23th at PLHS

3rd-6th Grade from 1:00-2:30PM and 7-10th Grade from 2:45-4:30PM

A summer favorite, the "team camp" is where campers will use their skills learned in week one and take them to the next level.  This year, we will focus on team concepts that the varsity coaching staff has identified and areas to work on in the off-season.  We have watched youth basketball at all levels and are specifically designing our drills to mirror what we would like to see on the floor in the winter next year.  Areas of focus this year are chemistry, "talk", passing, and full and half court defenses.  Teams are coached by all PL coaches and players who have been in, and are in our program. 


Shooter's Camp - June 26th - June 28th at PLHS

3rd-6th Grade from 1:00-2:30PM and 7th-10th Grade from 2:45-4:30PM

In this short week before we break for the 4th of July, campers will work solely on scoring moves, offensive play, and shooting.  Station work focuses on ball handling, footwork with the ball in hand, as well as work "off the ball".  Under the guidance of our staff and players, players will get 200-300 shots per session, guaranteed.  Half court and full court games will end every day. 


PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE LARGE VOLUME OF CAMPERS IN 2016  AND OUR FORMAT FOR CAMPS, WE ARE CAPPING THE WEEKLY SESSIONS AT 100 PARTICIPANTS AGAIN. These will fill up fast and it will be announced on all major PLAY and PLHS sites when camps are at capacity.  If a large number of people miss the cut, we will consider opening another camp in July like last year.

For those going into K-2nd Grade, Coach Schweim and staff have yet to set a date/time, but know that that information will be coming soon enough once gym space and logistics have been finalized.
