Basketball practice really is the time to work on more of the team concepts than individual concepts of the game. So it is necessary to do additional things to increase your individual skills. Let’s look at what you will get out of attending basketball camps or working with a basketball trainer.

You will get additional workouts.

Doing extra is never a bad thing. If you interviewed a top basketball player, I would guarantee one of the main reasons they would say they play a level above other players is because of working extra. Kevin Durant said it perfectly, “Hard (extra) work beats talent, when talent fails to work hard.”

You will learn from experts.

Surrounding yourself with an individual with expert knowledge of the game will have a tremendous impact on your game. I’ve heard the saying “You are the average of the people you hang around.” Just think if you put yourself in position where you are learning the game of basketball from others consistently, how much more knowledgeable you will become.

You will gain an advantage.

The average player does not attend basketball camps nor receive basketball training. That is why they are average. I love this say, “Successful people are willing to do, what unsuccessful people are not.” Or let’s change it up a little. Top girls basketball players are willing to do, what average girls basketball players are not willing to do.

That just leaves one question – What type of player will you be?

Don’t sit back and be an average basketball player.
