HOW ARE THE TEAMS SELECTED AT CAMP?

Qualified and experienced instructors, along with our dedicated camp counselors, run each camp session. On the first day, camp attendees are organized by age group and skill level, based on that information, teams are formed.

WILL DWYANE WADE ACTUALLY BE THERE? WILL MY CHILD GET TO MEET HIM?

This is one question we are always asked and the answer is...YES! The Robbins, IL native and 15-year NBA veteran, Dwyane Wade will be at camp both days offering his insight & personal testimony. All campers on both days, will begin or end their sessions in a group setting with Dwyane. On the first day, all campers will have a team photo taken with Dwyane. On the second day, campers will receive an autographed frame and access to download photo. We do not allow individual photos or for campers to bring items to be autographed.

This will be Dwyane's 15th and final year that he will host the Celebrity Sports Academy in Chicagoland. The Celebrity Sports Academy is know for it's special guest appearances, you never know who else may show up over the two days of camp!

WHAT WILL MY BASKETBALL PLAYER DO & LEARN AT CAMP?

Over the course of the two days, basketball campers will rotate through Skill & Drill Stations, improving technique and/or mastering the basics with our talented instructors from Breakaway Basketball. Time spent at the Agility Station will focus on speed, strength and footwork. Our younger basketball campers will visit the Courtology Student Athlete Study Hall. Through fun, interactive sessions, campers will discuss the importance of proper sportsmanship, being a great student-athlete, positive thinking and successful attitudes! Our older basketball campers will spend time with a professional sports speaker. They'll listen to personal testimony, discuss the truths and realities of playing college and professional sports and cultivating healthy behaviors (both on & off the court). Basketball tournaments are played both days, with elimination rounds on the second day.

WHAT WILL MY CHEERLEADER DO & LEARN AT CAMP?

Our Cheerleading Skills Camp is led by the professional coaches from Dreamz Elite All Star Competitive Cheerleading. Campers will rotate through tumbling, stunting and dance/cheer stations, based on level, learning basics and improving technique. Over the two days, cheerleaders of any skill level will be trained and taught a choreographed routine that will be performed during the second day award ceremony.

WHAT SHOULD MY CAMPER WEAR & BRING?

All campers will receive a camp t-shirt at check in on the first day (to be worn during camp). Please ensure your child wears this BOTH days of camp. Basketball campers should wear athletic shoes and shorts. Cheerleading campers should wear athletic shoes and tighter shorts or capris, loose fitting shorts are not recommended. We advise campers DO NOT bring anything else with them. We are not responsible for lost items.
