sign up for CTG’s FamouS 3v3 camp

October 2nd is Sign Up Deadline

Our beloved 3v3 Camp is finally making more appearances throughout the year. We will be offering 3v3 seven months out of the twelve in a calendar year. This means we are going to offer 3v3 Fall Camp this year for 2022, two months prior to basketball season starting.

We will be going over different subjects and curriculum for these camps, so kids are constantly learning new skills and movements.

Camp 1: Ball Handling (September)
Camp 2: Finishing Around the Rim (October)

It will be structured the same as our famous Summer 3v3 Camps. Half will be skills, half will be games/league play.

The only difference between our summer camps will be the times. We will be offering 3v3 fall sessions later in the day. Since school will be taking place during the day.

We will be offering 2 Camps for 3v3 Fall. One in September, and one in October. We would then still offer in-person training year-round. The 3v3 cycle would then continue in the spring.

Since we have fewer hours, that means fewer spots will be available. If you are interested in 3v3 for the fall at all, I strongly recommend holding your spot AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. We will NOT be able to have as many kids in the fall as we did in the summer.

Our Philosophy

CTG knows how crucial work ethic is to our program. Work ethic and consistency, are the number one indicators for any type of success. We also know how smart work can be just as valuable. We have to balance between these two extremes. Using both, smart work and hard work, to maximize the results of our students.

CTG has built a curriculum progressively. We believe in sequence. You can improve faster when working on certain skills/ movements in the correct order.

We wanted to give you the opportunity to look inside CTG’s brain. How we think, and how we train our athletes for crazy results. Everything we do has a purpose. We focus on the why, not the how. Every action we take must have intention. We don’t do things for no reason. Every detail has a purpose.

Variable Training

Variable training is a staple for CTG, it is what we are most known for creating. Variable training is the act of focusing on non-pre-planned movement. After we have built a fundamental base in any particular basketball skill, we focus on transitioning our students to more game-like training, which is non-pre-planned movement.

In a game, nothing is pre-planned. Everything we do is respond to our opponents’ movement. That is exactly why our basketball training should not be ONLY a pre-planned movement. However, this is what most of you are doing. When we train without defense, we are pre-planning each movement we make. When we train with defense, all our movements become instinctual, without thought. This will give our students better in game results.
