The countdown is on for our famous 3v3 Summer Basketball Camp!
Our Famous Summer Basketball Camp
CTG Hoops hosts the #1 summer basketball camp and training company in the state of Wisconsin. Our 2022 3v3 Summer Camp had over 250 participants.
Each camp will last a duration of three weeks, with students meeting twice a week. Normally, boys are on Mondays and Wednesdays, and girls are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Generally, older kids are earlier in the day, while younger kids are later in the day. You will know specific times for your child once camp sign-ups have closed. We have to wait for this to know the times because this is what allows us to see how many children are participating for what age groups. Camp sessions for each age group last one hour.
How Camp is Structured:
The first half of each session will cover the skill focus of the camp, and the second half of the session will cover the 3v3 live gameplay aspect of the camp.
The dates of the camps are given below:
- Camp 1: June 12 – 29: Shooting Camp
- Camp 2: July 10 – 27: Ball Handling + Passing Camp
- Camp 3: August 7 – 24: Finishing Around the Rim Camp
Location: St. Patrick’s School – 305 Lincoln Street Janesville Wisconsin

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 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.
“3V3 Summer Basketball Camp has become an important part of our summer traditions. My son waits for it all year! From the kind, collaborative, knowledgable coaches to the growth in skills and positive mindsets, the experience for my 5th grade son is consistently outstanding. He is a kid that is happiest when he has an active goal and some buddies to spend time with. CTG exceeds these two requirements each and every time! If you are an experienced player who loves basketball or a beginner just finding your coordination, CTG will teach you, celebrate you, and welcome you to the family! Thanks to Jack, Kate, Connor, Aaron, and Carson for teaching and loving my kid!”
“My son Easton has gone to CTG summer camps and skills sessions since he was in grade school. Throughout that time he has not only developed his basketball skills through the varied techniques taught but also learned valuable life lessons.
Jack takes time to get to know each athlete and their abilities and goals, then tailors the lesson toward helping to achieve that. This could be through a word of the week about self reflection or meditation to improve focus. Jack truly cares for each athlete following in his fathers footsteps which means a lot. Jack’s dedication to athletes through private and group lessons along with videos and tutorials and blogs is evident we recommend this program to anyone.”

“CTG is an unbelievably positive experience that has moved my daughter’s enjoyment of basketball into pure passion. She is never happier than when she is being challenged, motivated, and strengthened by her CTG workouts.
Parents of other athletes always ask me how she keeps getting better and my answer is always so simple: Jack. We are blessed and extremely fortunate to have had over five years of his time, individual attention, and incredible knowledge. CTG is an experience that we will never regret and will always feel blessed to be apart of!”
Our son, Gov, has been going to Close the Gate since he was 7. Close the Gate is so much more than basketball. Not only have his basketball skills greatly improved but his work ethic and discipline too. Coach Jack is a great teacher and coach but he’s also a mentor and a role model to Gov and has made a positive impact in his life.
They spend time talking about what matters in life and how to see things in a positive light. Due to Jack’s attention to detail, Gov’s shooting ability has drastically improved. He is a smarter basketball player because of Close The Gate.”
