Rising HoopStars Holiday Mini Camp recap 


On Friday December 29th, 2017 GetShooksports presented the Rising HoopStars Holiday mini camp.  The camp was open to boys and girls from 4th - 8th Grade.  The camp focused on player development, player IQ, ball handling and elite level attack moves, Defense, shooting techniques, game play and sports performance stations.  The camp featured two outstanding guest speakers about the experiences of being a Student Athlete.  Our goal was to provide an environment where players came to enhance their skill set over the holiday.

The camp featured 55+ talented kids working on becoming better basketball players, from various communities and winter travel programs; such as: Park Center, Edina, OMGBA, St. Michael, Albertville, Champlin Park, Armstrong, Blaine and Minneapolis.  The Rising Hoop Stars mini camp is an annual camp and we hope to see you at next years camp.  Please check our event page for more training opportunities, camps and clinics.

Parent Testimonial

“I have a 10 year old who loves basketball. He was super excited to attend the Rising Hoop Stars Mini Camp put on by Don Ferguson and GetShook Sports. The coaches were not only very knowledgeable about the game, but they were also extremely motivating and passionate. There was a good mix of individual skill work - shooting, ball handling, passing, and rebounding; team play- 5 on 5 with coaches right there encouraging unselfish play; and 2 guest speakers, who talked about important life lessons, mental toughness, and keeping a positive attitude through adversity. Not only were all the kids captivated by these heartfelt speeches, but all the parents who were in attendance as well. On the ride home after the camp, my 10 year old said he learned so much. He also said he met a lot of other talented kids who love basketball as much as he does. We will definitely go to this camp again.”
