About Our Point Guard Camps
Dave DeVenzio’s National Point Guard Camp is designed for serious, competitive athletes who are ready to take their game to the next level. We specifically work with young men and women athletes who play at a high-school level and beyond. Our concentration is essentially geared towards the point guard position, although our core fundamentals apply to every position played on the basketball court.
Our years of experience, proven methods, qualified staff and staff-to-peer ratio will give all participants the undivided attention they deserve and the foundation they need for significant improvement in their basketball careers. Our results are proven – Dave DeVenzio and his team have worked with basketball superstars such as Jerry Stackhouse, Danny Manning, Jason Richardson and Shea Ralph.
One of the best values among all sports specialty camps, cost covers lodging for four nights/five days, 11 meals, and, most importantly, expert instruction that will long be remembered. A non-refundable deposit of $195 is required to reserve your spot. Your balance is due one month before your program begins.
1. OUR CAMP IS FOR TEAM LEADERS, NOT FOR BEGINNERS
We focus on developing the honing the skills and experience that men and women athletes need to fulfill the point guard position and take leadership of their team. We expect all campers to be at the high-school level or above and have compassion about the game of basketball.
2. MORE IS EXPECTED OF CAMPERS
This is not summer day care. You will not have dorm monitors or counselors overseeing your every action. However, you will be expected to pay attention to our instructions, and then act responsibly. If you are unable do that, then you’re probably not qualified to play the point guard position. What are the benefits from this? You will be exposed to a plethora of useful information and valuable basketball tactics in a five-day camp than you ever have before, guaranteed!
3. REGULATED NUMBERS OF CAMPERS FOR EACH SESSION
This is probably the biggest difference between us and most basketball camps. Keeping our camper capacity regulated allows us to cover more facets of basketball and allows us to provide each camper with the undivided attention that they deserve. We limit enrollment in each session to a number that preserves a conducive seminar-like environment. Note: the number of campers may vary from session-to-session depending on the facilities we have available at our college locations.
4. PHYSICAL AND MENTAL DEVELOPMENT
Daily classroom sessions, video analyses, and evaluations of fellow campers provide instruction and practice in developing the mental aspects of team leadership. As on-court coaches, this is more important for point guards than for forwards or centers.
