Our mission is to teach the fundamentals of the game and encourage each player to be their very best. Azzi Camp creates a fun and positive learning environment for every skill level. Each of our camp sessions offers a basketball foundation of learning for both beginners and a strong skill challenge for more advanced athletes. We pride ourselves on having an experienced and energetic staff, within a very organized environment. We make sure to have a low camper to coach ratio so each camper gets hands on instruction.
Winning On And Off The Court
Each morning we start out the day with a life lesson, word of the day and basketball emphasis. Azzi Camp is about building confidence through sport, goal setting, and overall development in a motivating environment. Our positive messages are reinforced in everything we do, including a bracelet of the day for each camper to remember to “Be Your Best.”
We believe it is important to have role models to look up to and learn from. Each day at Azzi Camp features a motivational guest speaker to reinforce the life lessons of gratitude, positive attitude, and strong work ethic. Past speakers have included: MLB’s Vida Blue, NBA’s Bill Cartwright, Warrior’s Adonal Foyle, NFL’s Jamie Wiliams, USA’s Paralympian Trooper Johnson, Stanford National Champion and Play Present’s Andrew Zimmerman, Harlem Globetrotter’s Roy “ZaZu” Byrd, and International Professional Basketball Player Zhane Dikes.
