Conditioned Minds Camp FAQ's
What will my child gain from attending the Conditioned Minds camp?
Your child will be challenged on the basketball court to understand the importance of confidence through the process from start to finish. Our goal is to teach participants on the court how to use basketball as a tool for life off the court. This means accountability, stronger leadership, confident decision making skills, and a zeal for fun. Your child will find strength they never knew they had, and will learn how consistency leads the way to creating winners.
Is the Extreme Action camp very competitive?
Our focus is on teaching mental strength, focus, and skill development. Our camps are not about the end result of competition. Each day your child will learn how to set their own goals, and how to reach them with a focused process. We are very much into emphasis on process over outcome, self confidence, and follow-through.
How are the campers divided during camp?
Campers are placed in groups according to their age, skill level, and experience. This is done to ensure that each child participates with others of a similar ability. Emphasis is placed on improving at one’s own pace while enjoying the excitement of the sport. We will try to accommodate group requests when possible, but cannot guarantee in an effort to keep teams fair and balanced.
Can my child be in the same group as his/her friends?
We have found that participants at our camps excel with their teammates. They learn how to lean on one another through challenges, and keep each other accountable when thoughts of cutting corners exists. If they wish to be in the same group as another camper, there is a place on the registration form to place others they wish to participate with. While we try to accommodate campers, Coach Z also believes in the importance for students to lead by example. This means stepping out of a comfort zone in order to transform into their best selves through self assurance.
What is so special about having my child a Conditioned Minds Camp?
Conditioned Minds camps are nationally recognized as one of the most cohesive mental/physical leadership sports training systems in the country. The camps utilize training techniques of processes developed for success on the court, in the classroom, in the community, and overall communication skills and confidence building.
What does my child need to bring to camp?
Campers should come dressed in sporting/basketball attire (shorts, sneakers, t-shirt). They need to bring basketball. Please leave all watches, jewelry and electronics (i.e.: ipods, mp3s, and video games) at home as we cannot be responsible for such items. Campers may of course bring any medication they may need. Parents must make Coach Z aware of any medication that is handled at the camp.
Do you provide lunch?
Each child will be responsible for bringing his or her own sack lunch, beverage, and snack to camp.
What if my child has to leave early or come late?
Please inform the camp director or program director at the beginning of the day if your child needs to arrive late or leave early. If there is an emergency and your child needs to leave early, you may contact the program manager or camp director on their cell phone which will be provided to all registrant parents.
