Philz Skillz 5-tool CYO Youth Basketball Camp

While captain of his high school basketball team, Phil Hoban was looking for some effective team bonding experiences and a way to fulfill his volunteer hour requirements at Archbishop Murphy High School in Everett. He combined the two by creating a basketball skills camp that he and his teammates brought to his former grade school, Immaculate Conception in Everett, just before the start of the upcoming CYO season.

The program was a big hit that first year. It grew each year, catching on at a local Boys & Girls Club and other schools. In 2018, CYO adopted the program to bring it to coaches and players throughout the Seattle Archdiocese.

The program is free of charge. It’s focused on teaching first time or younger players with limited experience the five-tools necessary to develop as a basketball player and teammate. The program emphasizes CYO values of how to be a good teammate and how a player should conduct him/herself in practice. Participants will learn the triple-threat position, proper defensive position, help defense, how to create space (and why) and rebounding techniques. The camp lasts about an hour and flows from station to station. Regardless of the offense or defense a coach might choose to implement, these five tools will be useful.
