LX Basketball Camp features premier coaching from area coaches!
The latest techniques in coaching are utilized as we break down each skill into its simplest form to help build the players from the ground up. Emphasis is placed on technique and tactical understanding of the game while training the players to focus on court awareness, player positioning, passing, assists and defense protection.
LX Basketball Campers have 4 basketball training periods per day plus a 30 minute lunch period, optional free swim, and attend opening and closing ceremonies with other LX Sports Campers.
Starting in 2019, for more time in their favorite programs, LX Campers no longer will have an optional free swim period.
If your camper is looking for a more traditional camp experience, consider LINX Basketball Camp. LINX Basketball Campers have 3 periods of basketball per day, a 1 hour swim period (which includes a 30 minute lesson plus 30 minutes free swim), a 1 hour lunch period, and one period per day of traditional camp activities. Additionally, LINX Basketball Campers attend the General Camp opening and closing ceremonies. See the chart below for a comparison of LX and LINX Sports Camps.

"Basketball camp is something that I look forward to every summer, I love working with kids who want to work hard and care about improving their skills. We work hard and play hard at LINX Camps. We also have fun while teaching kids the importance of doing things the right way, on and off the court."~Brian Scalabrine
Nick Martinelli is no stranger to LINX sports camps, returning for summer 2018 as coordinator and head basketball coach. Nick is a freshman girls’ basketball coach at Wellesley High School and teacher at Wellesley Middle School. He is a graduate of Worcester State University with a degree in history and education. Under Nick’s guidance last summer, basketball campers found opportunities on the court to make a positive impact, and not just by scoring. Kids understood that you didn’t have to score a lot of points to be a good player. As a result, they found themselves succeeding in defense, rebounding, communication, and teamwork, which improved their self-confidence. Genuine passion for the sport and teaching kids is evident in Nick’s ability to keep it fun at all times. The most serious basketball campers show up every day with a positive attitude and work hard, realizing it’s a game to be enjoyed.
Nick looks forward to working with former NBA Champ Brian Scalabrine for some sessions again this year, as their personalities complement each other and they share the same values as basketball mentors. In addition to Nick’s love of coaching basketball all summer, he looks forward to LINX’s traditional activities, which allow him to connect with campers outside of sports camp.
