The basketball program at BSC has helped me out so much in every aspect of my game. They have a committed coaching staff that wants to help you get better. For everything from two-ball dribbling to footwork and shooting BSC’s got you covered.Theo (4-year camper from PA)
It is truly a privilege for me to play and train with an amazing coach & staff. In a short 3 week session, I learn so much from basic fundamentals to a new offensive play or perfecting a zone defense. Everything that I learn I take back to NY with me and apply it during the season.Drew (6-year camper from NY)
