2018 Shooting Camp


Camp Director and CNU Men’s Basketball Coach John Krikorian, or Coach K, just completed his 5th season with the Captains. With 15 years of college basketball coaching on his resume, Coach K will provide campers the tools they need to be successful shot makers. The camp will be limited to 30 participants so each camper will receive personal instruction from Coach K. Each camper will have their shot videotaped and evaluated by Coach K and his staff with individual recommendations for improvements and drills used by the pros. All levels are welcome, but only those willing to work hard should apply!
