COUNTDOWN TO KLAY THOMPSON BASKETBALL CAMP
Camp Hours – 9 AM to 3 PM
The Klay Thompson youth basketball camp is a world renowned 2 day skill academy session. Klay Thompson, who is arguably the best shooter of all time, will teach the skills and fundamentals of shooting, dribbling, rebounding, passing, and defense. Klay spent his teenage years locally in Ladera Ranch and graduated from Santa Margarita High School in 2008. Although he is mostly known for his shooting, Klay is one of the best defenders in the NBA today, which makes him the most prolific 2 way player in the league.
The base fundamentals he learned as a youth helped pave the way for the growth of Klay as a player. Learning the fundamentals of shooting, dribbling, passing, and sportsmanship were critical in the development of Klay. This all lead up to his achievements as a 5x all star, a 3x NBA champion with the Golden State Warriors, the 2016 NBA all-star weekend’s three-point contest champion, and 3 gold medals in international competition as a member of team USA. The camp will focus on helping kids to be well-rounded players teaching them the fundamentals to for what it takes to become elite players.
“I am excited to have my camp in Orange County where I went to high school. I am looking forward to hanging out with the kids and most importantly I just want everyone to have fun.”Klay Thompson
The camp leadership will be headed by Steve Williams. Each team will have knowledgeable coaches and counselors, who have collegiate and/or professional basketball experience. Klay will be present each day of camp to interact with the campers and share his championship experience.
KLAY THOMPSON WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE BOTH DAYS OF THE CAMP.
Klay will conduct group speaking sessions, interact with campers individually, and referee random games from time to time. Every camper will receive 1 signed autograph from Klay Thompson. There will be no cameras allowed during an autograph session. We thank you for your consideration in this matter.
