Summer Basketball Camps

Summer Basketball Camps 2016

Summer Camp information for 2016 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.



Summer Basketball Camp Opportunities
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.  Registration forms for some camps can be found at the bottom of the page.

Prior Lake Varsity Basketball Camps:
Girls Varsity Camp - Coach Mike Gidley and staff:  August 1st-5th for K-6th (**NOTE: Details & Registration Form on right side of page**)

Girls Completing Grades K-9

This camp is an opportunity for girls grades K-9 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! 

Camp Sessions-Please register your child as most recent completed grade level (example: If your daughter was in 2nd grade for the 2015-2016 school year please register her at the 2nd grade level).

The week of camp is August 1st through August 5th for grades Kindergarten-6th.    The cost for attending camp is $90 for grades 3-6, and $45 for grades K-2.  The location for camp will be at Prior Lake High School in the Blue Gym for grades 3-6.  Grades K-2 will meet at Grainwood Elementary (Gym).  Below lists the times and location of the sessions for each grade level:

8:00a.m. -10:00a.m. Grades 3rd and 4th in the High School Blue Gym

10:00a.m. -12:00p.m. Grades 5th and 6th in the High School Blue Gym

1:00p.m. -2:00p.m. Grades K, 1st and 2nd at Grainwood Elementary School


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(excluding July 4th and 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 $100.  Below lists the times and location of these sessions:

8:00a.m.-9:00 a.m. Grades 7th-9th in the High School Blue Gym.  Note: July 25th and 27th will be at Twin Oaks Jerabek

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 forms and additional details are posted below.

Camp Details: (**NOTE: Details & Registration Form on right side of page**)

 Fundamentals Camp - June 13th-17th at PLHS.   3-6 from 9:00-10:30 and 7-10 from 10:45-12:30

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 games and work through intense station drills with individual coaches.

Team Concept Camp - June 20th-24th at PLHS.   3-6 from 9:00-10:30 and 7-10 from 10:45-12:30

A summer favorite, the "team camp" is where campers will use their skills learned in week one and take them to the next level.  Coaches will draft players after camp is over the first day and this will be their team the rest of the week.  Coaches will run clinics and quick stations to start the day, get lessons from the varsity staff, then move to Prior Lake team concepts.  We will end every day with two games versus other camp teams.  At the end of the week, we will celebrate "Championship Friday", where campers will compete in individual skill competitions and a team tournament based on rankings for the week.


Shooter's Camp - June 27th - June 29th at PLHS.    3-6 from 9:00-10:30 and 7-10 from 10:45-12:30

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. 


Fundamentals and Shooter's Camp- July 11th- July 15th at PLHS.  3rd-6th Grade from 9AM-10:30AM

Due to an overwhelming response, the June camps for 3-6th graders are CLOSED.  This additional week of camp will be a hybrid of the fundamentals and shooter's camps.  All players are welcome to participate, however, those who are unable to attend the June camps will have first priority.  The player to coach ratio will still be 8-1 and camp will be lead by Coach Schweim and his staff.


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. Tentatively looking at the last week of July.
