This camp is for forwards and centers aged 11-17 looking to master the footwork and offensive moves to dominate in the post. Shot blocking skills, offensive rebounding and passing out of the post will all be covered in great detail and drilled until these moves become intuitive.
Mike VandeGarde will be leading our Big Man Basketball Camp. Austin Youth Basketball is proud to welcome Mike to their coaching ranks. Mike is a distinguished former professional basketball player in Europe and South America. Mike played college basketball at Illinois State where he left as the all time leading shot blocker in school history. Mike has served as a coach at Texas State and Southeastern Community College in Iowa. Mike currently serves as a scout in the NBA.
Mike’s extensive coaching in hundreds of basketball camps nationally and working for 10 years in player development help in delivering a dynamic and passionate learning experience for our students and campers. Our Post Player Camp will be a great deal of fun and will maintain a strict instructor to player ratio so we recommend calling Coach Chris Corbett at 512.921.4444 to discuss this program and your child’s basketball experience.
