The Point Guard Basketball Camp now entering its 16th year offering the very best in individual instruction 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 and advanced skill instruction in basketball. Our experienced staff of proven professionals will provide expert instruction and feedback. Campers will be challenged in every session to learn new individual and team skills while developing important concepts on the offensive side of the game.

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 allows each player to grow their individual game. We offer a series of drills that develop each player’s level of ability. This is a skill camp that is well- known for the positive instruction.

Why the Point Guard name?
This camp offers the most information and feedback about how to be a point guard or post player. We take pride in challenging each player to be the best they can be. Our coaches have extensive backgrounds with basketball instruction, especially, teaching play at the point and in the paint. Players will work on basic skills but will be exposed to advanced skills throughout the camp working inside and outside.

Do I have to be a Point Guard or a Post Player 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. We feel that every player will improve their overall game and confidence with our instruction, advanced techniques of teaching and the competition that will be created in the camp structure.

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 especially the greater New England area with all levels of ability to attend this camp.

Year Round Clinics with Coach Hogan

Coach Paul Hogan presents year round clinics at NHTI in Concord, NH with his NHTI basketball teams and coaching staff each year! He is also available to visit your school or town to present a coaches or players clinic for any age group. Coach Hogan regularly works with local Parks and Recreation departments to develop youth programs, coach’s education programs or to help structure leagues for any age group.

The NHTI clinics are all 3 hours in length and held at the beautiful Goldie Crocker Wellness Center on the Concord, NH campus. NHTI is easy to access (located near the Christa McAuliffe Planetarium) at the junctions of Rte. 393 and Rte. 93.

Every October, Coach Hogan presents a coaches clinic aimed at assisting coaches at all levels to be better prepared for the upcoming season. Coaches attend a team practice held at NHTI from 4 pm-6 pm and then retreat to a class room for a 3 hour “skull” session discussing the practice, skills, drills, and philosophy and team management issues. Each coach’s session registration fee includes a light lunch and refreshments.

Coach Hogan is available to visit your town to present a clinic or mini-camp as well. Typically, Coach Hogan will work with 5-6 towns organizing sessions to promote the game of basketball using some of the unique Shooter’s Gold methods of instruction and organization.

Each and every clinic provides the camper with some positive individual skill instruction and review of the fundamentals. Each clinic is designed to be fun and exciting with the opportunity to learn new skills, be exposed to new skills or techniques, to meet new friends, to play some competitive basketball in small sided games and to review/practice important skills relevant to the game.

Most clinics at NHTI are held during the fall and winter months of October through January. Clinics usually are held on a game or scrimmage day so campers can get some lunch after the clinic and come back to watch the exciting NHTI Capitals play a game or scrimmage at no charge! Parents can watch the clinics or visit Concord area establishments for eating or shopping.
