Competition Combine

The competition combine is different in content and format than the traditional Excel day camps. It serves as a specialized training combine for basketball players. In addition to a providing a variety of skill-focused basketball drills, we bring in number of performance training coaches to work with our campers on speed, agility, quickness and strength training.

The format is designed to mimic professional training and testing combines, much like what players experience in the NBA and NFL.

Much of the basketball portion will focus on specific skill development; practicing the skills used in NBA All-Star Skills Combine. The performance training will teach proper mechanics, while honing in on improving test scores for standardized performance tests common at the high school, NCAA and professional levels.

Most importantly, players will learn to compete at the competition combine through numerous games and testing stations. They will take the skills developed and apply them to the following competitions throughout the week:

  • NBA like All-Star Skills Combine (passing, ball-handling, shooting)
  • 1v1, 3v3 & 5v5 Competitions
  • 40-Yard Dash Test
  • Shuttle Test
  • Vertical Leap Test
  • Free Throw Contest
  • Speed Competition
