An Exclusive 4 Day Basketball Clinic for 2nd to 9th Grade Boys & Girls
Young athletes of all ages and skill levels engage in 4 days of fundamental skill training along with competitive, fun game environments. We offer a small experienced coach to player ratio, Coach Hurley present and engaged all day, and guest speakers who provide motivating life lessons on leadership, youth development and inspiring success stories that will change how your child views this game and sports in general.
Bob Hurley has won his teams over 1000 games, including 28 state and 4 national championships throughout his 50-year career at the famed St. Anthony School in Jersey City. As one of the most celebrated teachers of the game, Coach Hurley was inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame in August 2010, as only the third high school coach to ever be inducted and was named the 2017 ESPY Award for Coach of the Year.
Check out the Today Show's amazing new special feature on Bob Hurley to get an inside perspective on the small empire that the Hall of Fame coach built during his tenure at St. Anthony's. See how the high school coaching legend cranked out Division 1 and NBA level talent year after year and how he revolutionized the game of high school basketball.
Over the past 5 years, Shooting Touch has raised enough funding to provide over 250 scholarships for Boston's inner city youth to attend our annual, week long kids camp with Hall of Fame Coach Bob Hurley each July.
The response for this opportunity is amazing and our staff continues to be inspired each year by the smiles and passion we have seen in return. In order to be eligible, each player must come from a gross household income of $50,000 or less. Each player must also write a hand written letter as to why they think they deserve the opportunity and describe how the sport of basketball has influenced their young lives.
With generous donors and persistent fundraising efforts, we hope to continue to provide our city's youth with this great opportunity. For one week in July, every child at our camp is on the same playing field, all having fun and working together to become better basketball players on and off the court.
