Thank you to the over 1500 participants that did Play Hard Hoops Summer Camps and the families who supported our Play Hard Staff in 2022! We have released our 2023 Summer Camp Dates - Please Note That We Are Still Adding More Dates!
This will be the 25th season we are running Play Hard Hoops Education Summer Basketball Camps. It has been great to get back to our usual programming combining fundamental instruction, skill based contests and game play where we can teach the game. PHH Camps will also always teach 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 50 camps in at least 8 locations in Chicago with a plan to also return for camp at JCC Milwaukee and starting a new camp in Madison, WI.
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.
