Mercersburg Boys’ Basketball Camp is designed to challenge young men to improve their skills on and off the court.
By combining on-court station work with in-classroom film breakdown and lectures, players will learn skills and concepts that will help them reach their goals on the court, no matter how small or large they may be. The program will be led by college and high school coaches, including Mercersburg Academy Boys’ Varsity Head Coach Sean Crocker, and will include an overview of the college recruiting process for the players who are interested in playing basketball after high school.
