BIGger Basketball 101 Camp Teaches Youths Fundamentals and Life Lessons

Published on: January 25, 2013

Renowned basketball coach Jim Nutt is bringing his youth basketball fundamentals camp to Lone Star College-Tomball.  The program, BIGger Basketball 101 Camp, is open to 5th  through 12th grade boys and girls, and will be held in four times in the upcoming months, January 26, February 23, March 23 and April 27, from 12:30 p.m. ?- 3:00 p.m. at the LSC-Tomball Wellness Center’s indoor basketball court. 

Each one-day session costs $89, and enrollment is limited to 18 campers per session, with each participant receiving a camp T-shirt and BIGger SUCCESS workbook that includes the skills, drills and applications taught during camp.

The program, developed by Nutt, teaches the fundamentals of basketball—footwork, shooting, dribbling, passing, defense and rebounding, and team play—and how to apply the principles and lessons learned to a student-athlete’s school work, career and life in general.

Nutt is uniquely qualified to meld these disciplines, having been a high school and collegiate basketball coach; junior high school, high school and college teacher; and professional life coach.  Over the past 10 years, he has been applying his recruiting and team-building skills in the staffing industry.

“Fundamentals are the key to success in basketball and in life.  Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player, you will benefit greatly from learning more about the game of basketball and the game of life,” said Nutt.
