Event Details

The Shoot Basketballs NOT People Skills Development Camp teaches the fundamentals of the basketball sport to youth ages 8 – 16 and incorporates its core objectives to help reduce gun related violence in Philadelphia, PA. The design of this program is to implement strict educational and life skills to help ensure that the player focuses on success in a self-sustaining career. The coaches and staff will serve as role models to the players, providing a positive influence that promote education as part of achieving success while adamantly advocating non-violence. By incorporating a mentorship program, players will be surrounded by positive and influential adults who propose opportunities that discourage crime and assist with the accomplishment of producing productive members of society.


There are a total of (6) skills development clinics held each year with each clinic running for a duration of six consecutive weeks on Sundays from 10am to 2pm. Classes are structured by age and skill level, which is determined by an initial skill assessment upon registering for the program. Each class consists of lecture instruction by a volunteer guest speaker on topics dealing with physical fitness, nutrition, life skills, and the importance of education.


Classes are taught by properly screened volunteer instructors. An application and interviewprocess has been designed to ensure that the staff is highly qualified and fully aware of theprocedures and policies of the program. Each volunteer staff member will be required tocomplete a Criminal Background Clearance as well as a Child Abuse Clearance ensuring theeligibility and legal compliance for working around youth. The leadership team will review thepotential incumbent’s character, and previous experience to ensure he or she is a match for the position.
