Summer Camp

BasketBall City Summer Camp is NYC’s best basketball camps program.

Camps focus on teaching the fundamentals of the game in a fun and competitive environment. These Camps are designed to teach kids the skills they need to be a better basketball player by the use of drill and station work along with full court games. Along with NBA stars, Basketball City’s professional staff will make sure your child has a great time and improves their game.

Beginning June 2023, Basketball City will be running a full weekly schedule of Summer Basketball Camps back at Basketball City. We will have our Basketball City professional staff of coaches teaching your kids weekly. Our camps are designed to teach kids the skills they need to become a better basketball player by using specific drills and fitness work that focus on the fundamentals of the game in a fun, safe and inclusive environment.   The camps run from 9a – 4p (daily) from Monday – Friday for ages 6-17. Every camper will receive a jersey once they are registered and arrive. We are limiting the number of camp participants each week to ensure a safe and healthy environment for your children. The limited number of campers will also ensure that your child receives individual attention needed to improve their basketball skills. Our camps in the past typically include current and past NBA players and a collaboration with the Jr. Knicks, the National Basketball Players Association, as well as 5 Star Basketball, and our ever-popular Basketball City FUNdamentals Camp along with our Jr. NBA/NBA Cares  NBA Draft/Skills Challenge Camp with future NBA talent.

All Summer camps include small group instruction, comprehensive instruction from professional staff, competitive full-court games and analysis of real game situations, reversible BasketBall City Jersey, BasketBall City giveaways and prizes, and an Awards Ceremony on the last day of camp. We have a variety of camps to offer to both boys and girls ages 6-17.

BasketBall City is proud to be an Official Facility Partner of the Jr. NBA. The Jr. NBA is the official basketball participation program of the NBA, WNBA and NBA Development League. The Jr. NBA teaches the fundamentals and values of the game at the grassroots level to help grow and improve the youth basketball experience for all.
