Parents and Players:
We are excited to share our college basketball partner's summer basketball camp flyers and registration material with you.  Walsh, Mount Union and The College of Wooster conduct excellent youth camps.  To the best of our knowledge, Malone (another JYBA college partner) does not offer a summer basketball camp.  As you will see, some are traditional camps (day and overnight) while others are skill sessions (ball handling, shooting or defensive camps).  All are of high quality and will help your son develop his game in the off season.  Some camps fill up fast so once you make a decision on which to attend, submit your registration quickly.
Best of luck this summer and Go Bears!

If you are looking for a best in class, ball handling camp for your son, we strongly recommend Jeff Young's Ohio Prep Academy's 6 week training sessions. 

For most younger players, it is exactly the type of camp that will catapult their skill level - and confidence - for the upcoming season. 

Coach Young is a big believer in fundamentals and his 6 week training sessions are probably one of the best investments you could make in helping your son improve his.
