Pacesetter Pre-Season Camps are a perfect way to sharpen each player's skills and kick off the season as they will be guided through key drills and skill development. Plus, we will provide some pre-season conditioning to get them ready for the upcoming season.
Different camp options are available. We will provide a 15-hour program and 7-hour programs combining the best drills and offensive and defensive skill development.
Players will also be given competition in 1-on-1, 2-on-2, 3-on-3, 4-on-4, and 5-on-5 games to give players a chance to use their skills in game situations.
These camps are for players from grades 4-12.
Players will be separated by age for drills & games.
