Boston Celtics Basketball Camp
Need To Know Info
First thing that I noticed about the Boston Celtics Basketball Camp are the enthusiastic testimonials. Check out this one:
“THANK YOU JOE!
You have been such a wonder and inspiration to all of us, particularly my son. He LOVES your camps.
Have a nice break – you all work so hard there! See you next summer!”
The raving testimonials show that the Boston Celtics do have a top notch summer camp coaching staff. Based on the testimonials parents have a real respect for them.
The camps are run by former Boston Celtics Hall of Famer Dave Cowen.
He won a couple of NBA championships and made several All-Star teams as a Celtic. You can watch his Hall of Fame speech in the videos below. It’s pretty funny 😉
The Joe mentioned in the testimonial is Joe Amorosino. He is the general manager of the camp.
He’s been giving fundamental and motivational lectures for over 40 years. Joe has had the amazing honor of being inducted into 4 different basketball Hall of Fames!
There is a lot of basketball experience between Dave and Joe. Click here to read their extensive basketball backgrounds.
Daily Camp Schedule
The Celtics camp staff put a lot of time into planning the camp. They already have a camp schedule released: Boston Celtics 2015 Camp Schedule
A couple things I found different from other camps:
- Campers get a lecture on the Boston Celtics history. Knowing the proud history is a great way to create a lifetime Celtics fan!
- Different contests and competitions every day
- Guest lectures about how to play basketball the right way
- Skill development in small groups so all campers can learn
- Every scrimmage team has a dedicated head coach. Playing time and competition is equal
Early Bird Discount: Sign up for camp before April 15th to get a $25 discount!
Another part of the camp I think is pretty pretty cool are where they are held. Every camp is hosted at the Boston Celtics Training Facility in Waltham. It’s the same gym where the NBA players train!
FYI: Campers will have to bring their own lunch everyday. However, drinks will be available for purchase.
- Reversible Adidas jersey
- Two tickets to Boston Celtics open practice event
- Special appearance and instruction by Celtics legends
- Giveaways and awards
- Opportunity to purchase discounted Celtics tickets
From everything I read The Boston Celtics Basketball Camp is run by quality directors. A well run summer camp starts at the top. Experienced camp directors hire quality instructors that will end up coaching the kids.
I also noticed the camp features lots of Boston Celtics pride. I’m sure any young avid Celtics fans would love this camp!
