2020 Program Details

Nobles Basketball Clinic

For talented and dedicated girls basketball players entering sixth – 10th grades

June  22, 23, 24 (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)
4 p.m.—8 p.m.

Dawg Hoop Camp

Alex Gallagher ’90 has just completed his 19th season as head coach of the girls varsity basketball team. Gallagher has amassed a record of 428–98 (527–113 career record) in his 19 years, including 16 ISL Championships (235–8) during that stretch) and 8 New England Class Championships (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2020.) 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 parent seminars from 7:00 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.

Both current team players and athletes new to volleyball are welcome at this four-day camp.

The Nobles volleyball camp is run by experienced collegiate, club and national-team coaches who emphasize learning by doing, teaching the key principles behind each skill, and providing a high-energy, competitive, and fun environment in which to take each player’s game to the next level.

Players will practice the proper mechanics of passing, setting, attacking, and individual and team defense. Drills will offer hundreds of “touches,” while scrimmages and other games will build court sense and foster a competitive and fun atmosphere. This four-day camp will prepare athletes at every level for success during their fall volleyball seasons.

This camp fills up, so register early! First come-first serve registration.
