Saratoga Basketball Camp
The Saratoga Basketball Camp which runs in late June and early July is an excellent opportunity for young boys and girls from 3rd grade through 8th grade (9th for girls) to improve their basketball skills and have a fun time while learning the game. All proceeds from the camp go to the Global Ischemia Foundation which was created to encourage research for brain injuries. The Global Ischemia Foundation is determined to find a way to help the tens of thousands of people effected by this brain injury condition. For information on the camp please print out the form below and follow mailing instructions or email us camp registration or download our flyer. Feel free to give our camp a review @ epinions or yelp
