Nobles Basketball Clinic

For Talented and Dedicated Girls Basketball Players
Ages: Girls entering sixth-10th grades

Dawg Hoop Camp

Alex Gallagher (Nobles Class of ’90) has just completed his 15th season as head coach of the girls’ varsity basketball team. Gallagher has amassed a record of 318 – 62 in his 15 years, including thirteen consecutive ISL Championships (154-2 during that stretch) and five consecutive New England Class A titles (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016.) Prior to coming to Nobles, Gallagher spent five years as the head boys’ coach at Weston High School. During his time there, Gallagher won three league titles and one State Championship and was named Boston Globe Coach of the Year in 1998. Gallagher was also the head assistant coach at Stonehill College, director of the Weston Wildcat Basketball Camp for four years and the director of Hoop Mountain basketball School for four years.

The camp will have a dual focus. There will be intense fundamental skill work throughout the evening sessions. Ball handling, passing, shooting form and individual offensive moves will be the foundation of our drill stations along with defense / team offensive concepts. The campers will begin each session with a skill based lecture from local High School Head Coaches. Each camper will also take part in competitive games against peers of similar skill level. In the end we hope that Nobles Basketball Campers have fun, learn and push themselves to achieve dramatic improvement during the course of the three evenings.

Parent Seminars

The camp will also offer Parents seminars from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. each night. The first seminar will focus on the process of applying to private schools. The second seminar will focus on the Financial Aid application process and the third night will concentrate on the college recruiting process.

Nobles Strength & Conditioning

Kevin O’Neill has been the Director of Strength and Conditioning at Nobles since December of 2013.

He is also the Massachusetts State Director for the National High School Strength Coaches Association. Prior to Nobles, he worked as a Sports Performance Coach at Athletic Revolution, Director of Sports Performance at Athletic Based Training, and also the Director of Sports Performance at The Parisi Speed School. In addition to having his MS in Strength and Conditioning, Kevin also holds his NSCA-CSCS and his USAW certifications.

The Summer S&C Program is aimed at helping athletes of varying ability and experience levels improve their sports performance. This will be accomplished by working on a number of modalities. The Hang Clean will be taught so the athlete increases explosive power and also enhances intermuscular and intramuscular coordination. The Back Squat, Front Squat, Bench Press, and Deadlift will also be taught to build the athlete’s strength levels. There will be a number of general weight lifting exercises used to increase muscular hypertrophy and nullify any muscular imbalances that may exist. Proper running and change of direction mechanics will be taught and implemented in a variety of drills to increase speed and agility. Conditioning drills will be performed to increase cardiovascular and VO2 max levels. Prehab and injury prevention exercises will be used to help avoid injuries specific to the athlete or their sport. Static stretching, dynamic stretching, and self myofascial release methods will be utilized to help improve mobility and flexibility.
