Girls Basketball Camps
Every year the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater hosts athletes from around the region for instruction with our award-winning instructors. With fourteen sports to choose from and opportunities for children, youth and adults of all abilities, anyone with a desire to move can find their niche at a Warhawk Athletic Camp.
The philosophy of our girls’ basketball camps is to provide quality instruction in all phases of the game. Campers will receive individual attention from highly skilled coaches and players. An emphasis will be placed on improving their individual games and instruction will be aimed at improving fundamental skills such as shooting, passing, ball handling, rebounding, individual offense and individual defense.
To maximize the experience, campers will be divided into teams where they will work closely with their teammates and coach. Each player will receive individual attention from their team coach as well as the camp directors. Teams will have limited numbers and all campers will get the opportunity to participate equally
Our aim is to not only improve the camper’s skill level but to improve their level of enjoyment for the game as well. A series of competitions throughout their stay at camp will increase their determination to succeed as well as their desire to play the game. All of these things are what makes UW-Whitewater girls’ basketball camps some of the best in Wisconsin.
The Warhawk Basketball Camps are conducted on the beautiful campus of UW-Whitewater. Campers will have use of recreational facilities including the Williams Center and Kachel Fieldhouse. The Williams Center offers four gyms and a weight room that will be used for instruction and competition. The 60,000-square-foot Kachel Fieldhouse is one of the finest facilities in the country. It features four basketball courts and an indoor running track.
Resident campers will be housed in one of the residence halls located on the UW-Whitewater campus. The rooms are double occupancy (two single beds). Campers will need to provide their own linens. Campers will be supervised by counselors and coaches who stay in the same residence hall. Overnight campers will have three well-balanced meals each full day. Meals are included in the registration fee.
Commuters are campers who elect not to stay overnight in the residence halls. Commuters do not eat breakfast on campus but will be provided with lunch and dinner. Commuters will be able to go to the residence halls between sessions with teammates or friends if they choose.
Pre-camp information will be available on camp website three weeks prior to the start of camp. Pre-camp information includes check-in and out times with locations, daily schedule, what to bring and other important information you will need to know before attending camp.
