Max-OUT 9th Annual Basketball Camp

"THE MAX-OUT BASKETBALL CAMP IS BACK IN ITS 9TH YEAR AS CENTRAL ILLINIOS #1 YOUTH BASKETBALL EXPERIENCE!"

Created in 2011 by Lanphier High School Hall of Famer, Northern Illinois University Standout, Professional Player and Professional Basketball Trainer Marke Freeman, to provide youth with a constructive summer activity, quality skills training and professional development.

 

This program is a weeklong experience that caters to both male and female athletes, entering 3rd-9th grade. Our mission is to teach life skills to youth and introduce them to various career paths.

 

"Maximizing OPPORTUNITIES, UNITY, and TRAINING in our community." Athletes will learn how to train like elite athletes through intense on-court skills training. This camp is about much more than basketball. It emphasizes discipline, leadership, teamwork, hard work and academic excellence.

 

Our staff is well qualified, consisting of current and former coaches and players, each playing at the high school, collegiate or professional levels. Daily speakers will also be in attendance. In the past we have had nutritional specialist, doctors, paramedics, law enforcement, professional athletes, coaches, military personnel, referees, a fire fighter, a Harlem Globetrotter and many other professionals share their stories and words of wisdom.

 

Athletes will learn how to train like elite athletes through intense on-court skills training but this camp is about much more than basketball. It emphasizes discipline, leadership, teamwork, hard work and academic excellence.

TESTIMONIES:

 

“The Marke Freeman basketball camp is one of the best camps in the Springfield area. It is basketball at its finest and a place where kids can go to learn how to work hard and understand the game. My children have attended the camp each year of its existence. Each year they continue to master their skills on the basketball court. The staff is the best! Continue to do what you're doing for the kids.”
