2021 BASKETBALL CAMPS

Dear Campers and Parents:


As a basketball coach and as a former basketball player, I realize how important it is to make the right selection of a summer basketball camp. I have attended hundreds of basketball camps and I can assure you that the opportunities offered by GREG WHITE’S BASKETBALL CAMP are second to none.

Our goals are simple, we want to offer you the absolute best basketball learning opportunity possible, a very intense learning experience that is still positive and fun. Our unique and outstanding staff will allow us to accomplish that!


Our camp will stress fundamental skills and allow a variety of competitive opportunities to learn and to help you develop. It is a camp that will place great emphasis on personal qualities that are directly related to success and achievement. I will be present daily and feel very confident that I can help campers improve, regardless of their skill level at this stage of their career. Our entire staff will personify the skills, attitudes, and personal qualities we wish to emphasize. THINK BIG!

Camp Highlights:

 

Low Player to Coach Ratio: Each and every camper will receive individual instruction to ensure maximum learning. The staff will consist of experienced and enthusiastic coaches from college, high school, and junior high levels, as well as outstanding college players.

Conduct: Any serious violation of regulations, such as willful damage to the facility or property and/or other behavior deemed detrimental to the campers, will result in immediate dismissal. There will be no refund of fees upon expulsion or voluntary withdrawal from the camp.


Eligibility: Enrollment is open to campers ages 5-16.

 

Insurance and Supervision: Campers are under constant supervision. A doctor is on call and hospital facilities are readily accessible. Every precaution will be employed to prevent accidents. In addition, every participant will be covered by a supplemental accident insurance policy. Parents are invited to observe, but presence is not required. Campers are supervised at all times.


*COVID-19: Camps will be held at the specific locations as long as the pandemic assessments are cleared. If not, the camps will be held at Coach White’s home.

TEACHING
AND LEARNING CONCEPTS
COACHING IS TEACHING

 

KISS CLASSROOM
(KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID)

 

ATTITUDE
  1. Listening

  2. Enthusiasm

  3. Work

  4. Stance

 

LISTENING
  1. Skill

  2. Attention Span

  3. Eyes

  4. Ears

 

FOUR LAWS OF LEARNING

 

#1: EXPLANATION

  1. Teach why we do particular things

  2. Use mental pictures, analogies, and stories to convey or reinforce

  3. Don’t give them too much – “Paralysis from Analysis”
    “The more you think the slower your feet get!”

 

#2: DEMONSTRATION (SHOW THEM HOW!) – Emphasis on Proper Technique

  1. Coach

  2. Player

  3. Video (college or pro games)

 

#3: CORRECTION

  1. Patience (smile)

  2. Positive language – “Let’s try it this way now.”

  3. Find something good to say, then correct – 
    “You’re too good of a player to make that mistake.”
    “I saw you do a great job last week. I know you can do better.”

  4. Antagonize & Positively Influence?  Is it possible? 

 

#4: REPETITION – REPETITION – REPETITION

*Great teachers are “Masters of Overkill!”

*Develop good basketball habits

*Chalk & Talk will not get it done

*Repetitive & Competitive Drills

*Teach and Demand!

 

 

EMPATHY

Put yourself in their position. Observe your team: eyes, body language.  Remember what it was like to be their age. Each one is different. 

 

 

DEVELOP COLLECTIVE EGO
(FIST vs FINGERS)

  • US

  • WE

  • OUR FAMILY

 

Behavior Modification – Selfish Play (Fire Extinguisher)

Win and lose as a team; no one points a finger!!

Your players must love other players to be good.

Don’t violate the “FIST”!

 

 

COMMUNICATION = TRUST

  • Language and tone of voice (AVOID SARCASM!)

  • Everyone must look each other in the eye.

  • Talk to players individually. Find something good!

  • Be kind to one another.

  • Sense of humor.

 

 

FAILURE IS OK (COMPETING vs WINNING) . . . (WOUNDS TO WISDOM)

 

  • Learn from failure: Abraham Lincoln – a string of failures before becoming the greatest President in our nation’s history.

  • Don’t worry about making mistakes – learn from them.

  • Embrace the “process”.Control your emotions.

  • Fully understand what goes into losing. Then we can win!

  • Adversity – Discouragement – Frustration – Referees – Subs – Injury

  • Survive thunderbolts!

 

 

Modeling is very important because kids will do what you do. Over the long haul, the team will be a reflection of the coach’s personality. 

 

Great teachers make things seem “simple”.

 

You must have a “PASSION” for teaching. “Be positive.”

"To be GREAT and achieve YOUR own success in life, YOU must begin YOUR journey with an UNSHAKABLE confidence in YOUR own abilities. Whether others believe in YOU or not, YOU must believe in YOU!!!!! No one, I MEAN no one can make YOU feel inferior without YOUR consent......YOUR destiny will not be determined by circumstances or the opinions of others; YOUR destiny will be determined solely by YOUR own analysis of YOURSELF and what YOU believe YOU can do. GREAT people have chosen to ignore the naysayers and instead they buy into GOD'S view of them! What do you believe? Your brain is the GREATEST computer that WILL EVER BE CREATED! Use it, sharpen it, feed it with positive thoughts and create the world you want. THINK BIG!!!! AND WHEN YOU GET TIRED THINK BIGGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

A DAY OFF

So, you want the day off?  Let’s take a look at what you are asking for ….

 

There are 365 days per year available for work.  There are 52 weeks per year in which you already have 2 days off per week, leaving 261 days available for work.  Since you spend 16 hours each day away from work, you have used up 170 days, leaving only 91 days available.  You spend 30 minutes each day on coffee break.  That accounts for 23 days each year, leaving only 68 days available.  With a 1-hour lunch period each day, you have used up another 46 days, leaving only 22 days available for work.  You normally spend 2 days per year on sick leave.  This leaves you only 20 days available for work.  We are off for 5 holidays per year, so your available working time is down to 15 days.  We generously give you 14 days of vacation per year which leaves only 1 day available for work and I’ll be darned if you’re going to take that day off!
