HIGH POTENTIAL BLUE CHIP POINT GUARD CAMP

The High Potential Blue-Chip Point Guard Camp is scheduled for July 11-12 at Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY. The communication that I get the most from college coaches nationwide are their needs for a quality point guard. Why? 90% of coaches at any level will tell you that the most important position on the team is the point guard. The lead man is an extension of the coach out on the floor. The way a point guard leads is the direction the team will go. Our point guard director is Dr. Mike Beitzel who coached 30 years as a head coach at Hanover College (20 years) and NKU (10 years). His teams were very successful because on how he was able to develop point guards. Go to the below tab for more information on our point guard camp. You won't regret it.

HPBC PG CAMP

HIGH POTENTIAL BLUE CHIP POST CAMP

The High Potential Blue-Chip Post Camp will be June 23-24 at Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY, near Lexington. Once the ball crosses mid-court, the post player becomes the most important position on the floor. Most coaches will tell you that winning championships are due to the play of post players. Our post camp director is Randy Ward, the game director for the Ohio-Kentucky All-Star Game and a veteran coach with over 35 years of coaching experience in Florida, Kentucky and Ohio. Coach Ward will teacher the finer points of the post game to players in order to make them more productive for the 2018-19 season. For more information on our post camp, click below.

HPBC POST CAMP

HIGH POTENTIAL BLUE CHIP SHOOTING CAMP

The High Potential Blue-Chip Shooting Camp will take place June 23-24 at Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY. Villanova  revolutionized basketball when they won the NCAA Tournament back in April as a result of shooting the three pointer. I look for more teams to utilizie the 3 ball next season as a result of Villanova's success with it. Our shooting camp will be directed by former college coach, Dr.  Mike Beitzel who was a head college coach for 30 seasons at Hanover College and NKU. Players love his drills that he uses to improve one's shooting. A college coach will always find a place for one who can shoot the "J". Go to the below tab for additional information on our shooting camp.

HPBC DEFENSIVE CAMP

Our next four blogs will deal with the High Potential Blue-Chip Specialty Camps that we will conduct this summer at Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY. Today I will tell about our defensive camp, a new camp for us. Coach Mike Beitzel, a former college coach at Hanover College and Northern Kentucky University will direct this camp. He has many drills that will improve one's defense. As we all know d-e-f-e-n-s-e wins games, especially at the end of the contest, when a coach wants his/her best defenders in down the stretch. A player's defensive ability often determines if a college coach wants that particular player. Click below for more information on this camp.

HIGH POTENTIAL BLUE CHIP EXPOSURE CAMPS

I'll be doing a series of our camp offerings for this summer at Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY. First, our 5 days/4 nights and 2 days/1 night exposure camps. One's summer schedule will determine which camp is best for the camper. In both camps, players will play games (10 for June 24-28 and 5 for the July 9-10), do fundamental stations, hear guest speakers, compete in contests and practice daily. A camp report will be emailed to over 500 college coaches nationwide representing all levels of play. The competition is second to none as well. Since 1980, we have had numerous NBA players, McDonald's All-Americans and all-staters perform at our camps. For more information on each camp, click below.
