The season will start off with clinics where players work on their skills through organized drills. Then, we have a scrimmage followed by games. On game days, the players will have a 20-minute practice, followed by two 20-minute halves. Our 20-minute practices are a critical and valuable part of our program: Your children will be given specific drills created by our directors, and then they will work on those drills with our highly-trained coaches.

Our players will improve their basketball skills and have so much fun while following Watts 3 V 3 guidelines! Each week, new skills will be taught as we focus on fun, sportsmanship and skill. Games will focus on strategy.

We will also have age-appropriate sized basketballs and age-appropriate hoop heights.

Each player can submit two friendship requests. However, we will only guarantee one mutual friendship request. Please list the two names (if any) in the comments section of the registration page.


Join us every Sunday afternoon for a one-hour between 2-5pm.

Our program includes a basketball and a game-day jersey.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up for 1000 Watts Sports Camp’s basketball program and give your child the gift of basketball skills, new friendships, and memories that will last a lifetime!

Please understand that we do not provide refunds or makeup sessions for inclement weather cancellations.
