Coach Lacey in cooperation with the Henrico County Recreation and Parks and ALCOVA Mortgage will be hosting the Annual Basketball Skill Development Academy for rising 3rd-9th graders in the fall of 2017. The academy will emphasize skill development, basketball classroom, and live competition. The 4-day camp will also include individual competitions and games with awards for the Champions in each division.
The main objective of the Basketball Academy is to focus on individual player development, teamwork, court awareness, basketball knowledge and sportsmanship. Instruction will include – creating your own scoring opportunity, training the Triple Threat, defense, shooting, agility, rebounding, and the fast break – while stressing the importance of hard work and discipline. Campers will be divided into different divisions and will compete within their own division unless otherwise requested.
