Formerly known as Baden Youth Sports Camps, Advantage Basketball Camps was founded in 1986 by Michael Hummel based on the philosophy that children need attention and direction in their lives. This basketball coaching method does just that. Advantage Basketball Camps serves as a basis for learning important life lessons like self-confidence and the value of self-discipline, just as much as they provide instruction in ball handling and basketball shooting techniques. The mission is to teach children using the most effective methods to help them be their best on the basketball court and beyond. Your kids will grow and learn about more than basketball at an Advantage Basketball Camps' session. While they practice ball-handling, dribbling, and shooting, they will also learn about self-esteem, teamwork, and the value of hard work. The summer 2012 camps will consist of 1-5 day sessions for boys and girls of all skill levels, from 7 to 18 years of age. Locations include Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, and more.
