There’s a Storm a comin’
WNBA Seattle Storm is holding down the state as the sole professional basketball team. Maybe one day the Sonics will come back!
The Storm host one day clinics throughout the summer for both boys and girls. At the clinics campers will be separated to their age and skill level so their skills will progress.
I also really like what the Storm offers the community. They host an open practice to all camp participants.
Watching practice would be a great opportunity for your son or daughter to see what a professional basketball practice looks like!

National Basketball Camps in WA
Advantage Basketball Camps dominates the basketball scene in Washington.
In 2015 they are offering over 50 basketball camps in greater Washington. Wow.
Advantage has been around for a while, since 1986. During this time they’ve perfected how they teach youth basketball players. The camp is focused on “Fun with Intensity”.
They believe in repetition and developing muscle memory. Which is really important in basketball.
Now for the bad part. I’ve received several poor reviews of the Advantage Basketball Camp from parents.
The camp quality all comes down to who is hosting the camp. If you do sign up with Advantage please do your homework and make sure the Camp Director has a history of successfully running basketball camps.
If you’re interested in an Elite basketball camp, you have to check out PGC Basketball.
They have developed a unique camp curriculum that helps players “Think the Game”. If your son or daughter wants to improve their Basketball IQ, PGC is a must attend camp.
They offer a 110% money back guarantee. Can’t go wrong with a guarantee like that!
If you’re unsure PGC Basketball is right for your or daughter, they have a helpful quiz to determine if the camp is right for them.
Also, look into their online training if your player is a beginner. It’s never too early to start learning the finer points of basketball!
1 on 1 Basketball, located in greater Seattle, is more of a basketball institution than just a camp.
They host not only Summer camps, but also Fall, Winter, and Spring camps!
If your son or daughter wants more personalized training, sign up for weekend clinics, private, or group bball lessons.
I also really like how they offer after school training in several sports. This is great for parents who work late and can’t pick up their kids right after school.

Located in Seattle, Hoopaholics is another great year-round basketball training option for both boys and girls.
Register for summer camps every week of summer, get personal training, or a sign up for a unique “Training League” where players learn new skills and then apply them in an informal game-like situation.
Hoopaholics also provides “Lil Dribblers” training where players will learn the basics of the game and play on lowered hoops.
Watts Basketball located in greater Seattle, has several different program levels for both boys and girls including Lil Dribblers (Grades K-3), Future Stars (Grades 4-6), All Stars (Grades 6-8), Varsity Prep (Grades 7-11), and College Prep (Grades 9+).

Watts provides basketball training all year-round with several sessions after school and on the weekends.
They also offer semi-private training sessions for players looking to improve a specific skill or a group of friends who want to work on a technique like passing drills.
I highly recommend reading about “The Watts Way” and their basketball training philosophy.

Camps Hosted By Colleges & Universities
Gonzaga University puts on one of the most popular college basketball camps in Washington.
Zags Men’s Basketball offers a basic fundamental camp for boys and girls beginner players.
There’s also an advanced camp for Boys looking to live the “Gonzaga Experience” and stay in the dorms. The Advanced camp is for Boys entering grades 3-12.
Zags Women’s Basketball mixes up the camps a little with an Individual Camp and a Position Specific Camp. The position camps are great because guards get guard specific drills and post players will get post specific drills.
I love what the University of Washington offers for camps. They have two sessions of the classic Day Camp. That’s a given.
For the beginner players the Huskies offer a Mini Dribbler Camp which is a great introduction to basketball in a non-competitive environment.
The Huskies also offer position specific camps that are taught in a high intensity environment. Choose from a Guard Camp or a Post Camp.
Washington State University offers the traditional Day and Overnight Camp. Boys and Girls basketball have basically the same offerings.
Campers will play in the Basketball Practice Gym, the Bohler Gym and in the Beasley Coliseum (where the college players play).
Make sure to check if the Cougars to provide camp discounts for things like signing up for camps in multiple sports.
Pro Tip: The smaller colleges can also put on quality basketball camps.
For example, Pacific Lutheran University Lutes located in Parkland offers several basketball camps for both boys and girls.
Men’s Basketball teaches the same mechanics and drills at camp that are taught to the college players.
Sounds like a great learning experience to me!
