Boynton Beach FL @ Canyon Isles For Immediate Release
All around, what a great day for HDJ; the weather is ideal. Cloud cover is a great thing
Today we focused on setting a proper Pick and completing the "Pick n Roll"
Everyone particapated in setting a solid pick and then rolling off the pick to the basket for an easy shot.
From the beginnings of Basketball in Springfield Ma, to the present game and in between...Picks have and always will be an integral part of the game.
It is so important to know how to space the floor and move together creating easy shots; easy shots = easy points.
In addition, we also worked on perfecting our dribble.
Papa John's Pizza was the prize for the Top 7 finishers in our weekly 'Dribble Times"
The Top 7 Times were rewarded with a Large Specialty Pizza.
Winners were: Jared Schacter, Alex Glazer, Scottie Schacter, Angelina Catania, Brittney Carver, Gianni, Natale, Sean Lutin.
Pizza was also rewarded to the Winner of Buzzer Beaters; Jon Carver came home with the prize by hitting a runner as time ran off the clock.
Our scrimmage was hardcore as all our players got involved. The ball was moving up and down the court with a great pace.
Alex G lead the fast break and dished the rock with great precision.
6 weeks are in the books, with 1 week remaining. I am extremely pleased with the continued progress of this camp.
Every player has been focused and wants to better his or her skills.
