Austin Basketball Camps



Parents and players have hundreds of choices when looking at Austin Basketball Camps.   Some camps offer inspiration served up by basketball celebrities.  Others are focused purely on fun.  There are UT camps, high school camps, point guard basketball camps, strength and conditioning camps, girls basketball camps, coed camps, and “exposure” basketball camps all over Greater Austin and beyond.   How do you choose?

Meet The Best Austin Basketball Camps

Austin Youth Basketball Camps focus on putting the fun in fundamentals while insuring a very low instructor to player ratio and limiting attendance to 25 players in most cases.  (Our Dripping Springs Camps with DSYSA may have more.)   Camp Directors include former Longhorn player Chris Price, former University of Maine at Fort Kent point guard Chris Corbett, and former Illinois State player Mike Vandegarde.  Both Chris Price and Chris Corbett are year round professional basketball trainers for Austin Youth Basketball and collectively offer personalized training to over 130 young basketball players.  Mike VandeGarde serves as an NBA scout for the last 10 years and helps out on Austin Youth Basketball Academies as well.  Basketball Camps are not a side hustle or something our school forces us to do.  We do camps because we love to share our expertise in a passionate manner that brings our campers back year after year.

An Alternative To the “Factory” Austin Basketball Camp

Austin Basketball Camp choices are abundant.  Most take the factory approach by cramming as many kids into the gym and hiring a big name celebrity to endorse the camp.  Kids can be inspired and have fun at these basketball camps but rarely get the building blocks they need to successfully grow their game.   Austin Youth Basketball Camps typically limit campers to 25 kids.  We hold our camps in gyms that are safe and distraction free.   Our directors have played the game, not just coached it.   We keep basketball campers to instructor ratio at 8:1.  All of our instructors are dedicated full time to the game of basketball.  This is not s side hustle for us.  This is our passion.  Your kids benefit from both our passion and expertise.  And all of our basketball camp instructors have been back ground checked.


Half Day Austin Basketball Camp

Austin basketball camps are often either half day or full day basketball camps.  We choose the half day environment despite the more lucrative finances for us in full day camps.  We have worked many full day basketball camps that has a large percentage of kids on the training table getting medical care.  We don’t believe the human body is built for 7-8 hours of basketball and the ankle, knee, concussion injuries we see accumulate much faster in full day camps.  We also want kids to be focused to learn.  This is a teaching basketball camp.  Parents often delight in hearing all their kids learn.  Frankly, it is difficult to keep a high level of basketball attention while fatigued over 7-8 hours.
