Play Hard Hoops Education Basketball Camps. Thank You to the Over 1000 Participants & Families For Making PHH a Summer Camp Choice in 2021! We Look Forward to our 24th Season of Play Hard Hoops Education Basketball Camps in 2022 - Information Below for Over 30 Camps at 8 Locations Throughout Chicago & Suburbs

We just finished our 23rd year of Hoops Education Summer Basketball Camps. While camps still needed some minor adjustments to the program due to safety protocols, it was great to get back to a combination of fundamental instruction, skill based contests and game play where we can teach the game and also the life lessons we believe are so well learned in our camp environment - led by our words of the day: passion, teamwork, attitude, character and gratitude. We will be running over 30 camps at 7 locations in 2022 with also a plan to return to a camp at JCC Milwaukee.

Play Hard Hoops Philosophy: Dedicated to teaching the game of basketball while stressing sportsmanship, teamwork, enthusiasm, and a positive attitude on and off the court. Play Hard Hoops feels privileged to be in the position of educating young people through the greatest game in the world-basketball. The goal is for each player to have a great time regardless of age or ability and to foster an encouraging environment where players are excited to learn and improve each day.

Play Hard Hoops camps consist of skill and fundamental work on dribbling, passing, shooting, defense, and offensive footwork. Play Hard camps will also teach team offensive and defensive concepts, so that players improve their fundamental skill, knowledge of the game, and understanding of how to become a better basketball player individually and as a team.
