If you are a young player nearing high school or are the parent of a young player in that age range, the first Nike Boys Basketball Camp at UC San Diego may be the perfect place to be.

The UC San Diego Nike Camp will be held from August 8 to August 11 in the state-of-the-art RIMAC facility located on the UCSD campus, which offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.
Trust us at Cal-Hi Sports, if you’ve never been to UCSD, it’s pretty spectacular. The RIMAC courts are where our lead girls basketball analyst, Harold Abend, goes every summer for the San Diego Classic. We also have a niece, Margaret Lie of Pacifica, who is going to be starting there this fall and several friends of our son, Sean Tennis, from Lincoln High (Stockton) also go there.
The camp focuses on boys from age 7 to 13 and will be aimed at helping young players in individual and team drills.
The Complete Skills Camp is intended to help players of all abilities develop athletically, refine fundamental basketball skills and enhance their skill set at the post, wing or guard position. Emphasis is placed on fundamental development, shooting, offensive moves, defense, rebounding, team play, and more.
UC San Diego head coach Eric Olen will be directing the new camp. He was an assistant coach for nine years before assuming the lead role prior to the 2013-14 season. Last year’s team set program records for overall wins (24) and California Athletic Association (CCAA) play.
Our Cal-Hi Sports Stockton office assistant editor, Paul Muyskens, ran the scoreboard at Stockton Arena last March when Olen’s team lost in the CCAA tournament championship to Humboldt State. The Tritons made nearly 40 percent of their three-point shots so if you’re a young shooter it’s a good bet that this camp may really help.
