Why are Basketball Camps Important?

Basketball camps are hugely important, especially in Ireland. In the Irish basketball system players usually do not have the same amount of practice time throughout the season as players in other countries. During the summer players now have the opportunity to attend basketball camps in Ireland and get in anywhere from 20-60 hours of basketball practice in a single week. Considering that during the season you may only get two hours in a week you can see just how important it is to attend an Irish Basketball Camp and work on your fundamentals and individual basketball skills. It is also important to remember that during the season trainings will involve a lot of team concepts on offense and defense. This is essential for coaches who want to build successful teams however it it isn’t great for developing players individual skill sets. That is why during the summer is the ideal time to work on your individual game and improve in the areas you need to most, basketball camps are the best place to help you do this.
