    Hoiberg Camp?

    Anyone had any experiences at one of these? I'm thinking of signing up my nephew for one of his 2 day camps. He's 8 and practices all the time..I figure as much as he plays, getting some instruction from the best early on could make a big difference. Just curious if anyone knows what to expect at one of these?

    I can tell you from my experience, and this was 10 years ago they it was just a lot of games and some fundamentals. However I'm sure it has changed with the different coaches, however it was a lot of fun and I got to meet new people which was worth it. I've actually meet up with a few of the same kids from that camp in college 10 years later.....what the Hell are the chances of that?

    Don't expect much in the way of tangible benefits. It's a mass of humanity. It's all they can do not to lose children, let alone develop their basketball skills. It's all about the $$$. But they can be a lot of fun.

    And if he is a big fan of Iowa State its really cool to meet the players, ill never forget that Jamaal Tinsley was my group coach.

    Sign him up. My son(12) has gone 3 years in a row and has a blast. The kids get to meet the coaches as well as interact with the players. After the first day last summer he told me he was glad he wasn't on Royce's team because he made the kids do pushups if they screwed up. That actually made me feel better about Royce. Another benefit is he has made some friends that he gets to play against when we go to tournaments. Attendance appears to be better in the 2 years Fred was in charge vs. GMac. Jeff Rutter does a great job talking to the parents and making sure everyone is having a good experience. Normally 4-5 kids from our town go and the parents take turns driving. You can stay and watch for as long as you want but If you stay all day it might look a little creepy.
