Welcome to the Summer Camp and Playing Opportunities directory page. As an Association, we feel that players participating in off-season camps, clinics, tournaments and open gyms is a key to our teams success during the basketball season. This page is designed to be a resource for parents and players looking for additional places to plug into. Camps listed here are camps that Big Lake Basketball Association families have recommended from past experiences as well as opportunities presented to us. We will update this page as information becomes available.
Summer Camps are available through Big Lake Community Ed for 2020. These camps are coached and organized by our varsity coaches. On that note, both of our varsity coaches are new this year! Please visit the Community Education website for details on what is being offered.
Midwest 3 on 3 and MYAS are local groups that have multiple 3 on 3 leagues and tournaments in the area in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Teams are generally 3-5 players with no coach, playing 20 minute, half court games with an official. These games offer a chance for players to learn to move without the ball, create shots for themselves and their teammates, and to play defense. It's hard to "hide" or blend in while playing 3 on 3. Please check out the link below for more information on locations, rules, fees and more!
Elk River has a basketball league open to anyone in the area that would like to participate! This league is for players entering 4th-8th grade this Fall. Players will be placed on teams with other players from the area, not on a town specific team. It is open to all skill levels. Games are during the day. Please visit their website for more information, dates, times, rules etc...
Linked below, are camps around the state that people have recommended. There are so many different offerings, if you are curious, you can find summer camps at most colleges and throughout the state. Some are day camps and some are overnight. Camps can be a great way for players to take their game to another level, but they each offer a different experience and the cost can really vary.
Fall Skills Clinic will be offered again this season for any travel player that registers before the first clinic. For 2020 Clinic dates are not available yet. Check back often for dates and times!
