Players Needs: A completed health questionnaire with important health information that we will have available on tryout dates and the beginning of the Gold Rush program. Players need to have their own health insurance plan. Another option would be for players to register with the AAU and purchase their low cost insurance as well.

Parents/Family: There will be opportunities for parents to watch a practice and certainly watch a scrimmage/game situation. Some practice situations may be limiting with space for extra people in the facility.

Practice Sessions: (Typical information)

  • Saturdays or Sundays on weekends with an occasional Friday night
  • Tuesdays or Wednesday or Thursdays during the week (depending on gym availability
  • 75 minutes per team on day 1 of a weekend—60 minutes on the floor solo and 15 minutes of sharing the gym with the next group.
  • 90 minutes per team on day 2 of a weekend—60 minutes of solo team practice and 30 minutes of sharing the gym with another team.
  • 2 practices per week but some weeks will have 3 with special events wrapped into the plan

Practice Rotation: Teams will rotate practice times on weekends

Gold Rush Basketball Club Questions & Answers

  1. What will practices look like for planning purposes? Players will be shown a pre-practice routine, how to warm up and prepare for a practice/game. We would like players to arrive prior to the session and put their footwear on in the lobby, no jewelry or watches and should be hydrated before a session.
  1. How long will a practice session last?
  • Weekdays: 90 minutes unless we have a special event.
  • Weekends: 90-120 minutes unless we have a special event
  1. Will players be expected to wear the reversible top for every practice or event? Yes. We want our players to wear the reversible which aids in scrimmaging and game situations.
  1. What will be different for Gold Rush in 2024 versus 2023? We plan to add some Blue/Gold scrimmages/games, mini-tournaments (in-house) and perhaps play in one local age appropriate tournament. The more players we have in the program, the more options in-house and outside the general perimeters of the program
  1. Why is Gold Rush Basketball Club a good program for my son or daughter? Outstanding instruction blended with scrimmaging, feedback and teaching the finer aspects of the game at every session. Fundamentals of the game along with the “automatic” habits that will be reinforced daily helping players improve their game and reach their personal goals for the game while still being able to successfully be part of a spring school athletic team/program.
  1. What if my child has a game with another team or sport during the first week or two of Gold Rush? Players need to communicate their personal schedule so our staff can properly arrange practice and tryout times. Players missing the tryout at the end can re-register for the tryout after the 18th of February. This not only provides our staff with contact information, waivers but allows an easy way to communicate to all players in the program.
  1. Can my child play on a school team such as softball, track, lacrosse or baseball and still participate in Gold Rush? We just need communication on a missed practice/session or if the player will be arriving late from the other event.
  2. Is Gold Rush a good program for someone new to the game of basketball? The training will be positive and worthwhile. Players will learn how to practice on their own as well as the fundamentals of the game while having fun. We hope every player develops the same “love” of the game that our staff has and appreciates.
  3. Is Gold Rush a good program for a player with lots of experience and skill with basketball? Yes. Our staff can help a very good or knowledgeable player advance their own personal game. If a player really wants to play and travel to lots of tournaments, our program is not the right program. Our program is terrific for a spring athlete looking to add to their game but still allowing participation on a school team of choice without interference. We value multi-sport athletes and the experience.

NHTI

The Point Guard Basketball Camp was created in response to the need for a high-level “skill camp” that specializes in position play and the skills necessary to be successful. This camp provides a unique opportunity to learn specific elements of “the point guard” and “the post player” play in basketball. Our experienced staff of proven professionals will provide expert instruction and feedback.

What does a player need have for experience?

Each player receives a tremendous daily workout specific to their position played. The outstanding facilities and low player-to-coach ratio allow each player to grow their individual game. We offer a series of drills that develop each player’s level of ability. This is a high-level intense skill camp that is well-known for the positive instruction.

Why the point guard name?

To offer the most information and feedback about how to be a point guard, we will instruct and challenge each player to “become the best” they can be. Our coaches have an extensive background with basketball especially point guards and post play.

Do I have to be a Point Guard to attend the camp?

NO. We welcome the serious player intent on improving their game. This camp instructs every position on the floor but primarily serves point guards and paint players. The balance of the camp is dedicated to these positions.

Does a player have to be experienced to attend the camp?

NO. The player needs to be a motivated camper looking to improve his/her skill, knowledge and appreciation for the game of basketball. Players come from all over the country with all levels of ability to attend this camp.
