Dr. Dish Summer Basketball Camp Was a Huge Success

Dr. Dish basketball had the opportunity to host an amazing basketball camp this summer in Maple Grove, MN. Over 60 kids from around Minnesota and surrounding midwest states attended our camp. Each player was entered to win a free iC3 home shot trainer and also $500 worth in individual training at the Dish Lab with Coach Mason. The kids also received a Dr. Dish lanyard, certificate of participation, and other great prizes for participating in our camp!
We were very fortunate to have an amazing coaching staff on hand. Every one of our coaches played collegiate basketball and currently 3 of them are still playing basketball professionally in Europe. We also had former NBA player Troy Bell (2003, 16th overall pick) on board to round out our incredible coaching staff. Let's just say there was a lot of basketball knowledge in the gym that day!
The day consisted of skills work in every category centered around hard work, smart and purposeful training. Luckily we had several Dr. Dish All-Star shooting machines on hand to help enhance the camp experience. We were able to use the shooting machine for high rep shooting stations, ball-handling stations and also full-court transition shooting and finishing drills. The shooting machines definitely took the camp to the next level and assured kids the high quality reps they deserve.
We mixed in some competitive drills like dribble knockout and also full court 5v5 so the kids had a chance to compete and see where their skill level stacked up against their fellow campers. It was great to see the advanced skills these kids showed and it was also great to see the younger kids competing with the older kids. The players were able to soak in valuable knowledge from our coaches each time they switched stations.
Our coaches broke down real game situations that players will encounter and gave them the solutions to be successful. Before the players left we made sure to challenge them to get better and to take all the advice and drills we gave them to increase their skill level this summer. Most importantly we reiterated that the goal was to simply get better in a fun environment.
Dr. Dish Basketball continues to innovate and change the way coaches and players train. Our shooting machines help players maximize their training potential in every basketball setting.
