Fancy Becoming a Basketball Coach at Summer Camp?

If spending the summer shooting hoops with campers sounds like your ideal summer, then we might just have the perfect job for you.

Summer Camps in America usually have great courts, both indoor and out, so if you want to become a Basketball Coach, read on!

Most camps put a big emphasis on their campers having fun, but some camps will run competitions – even challenging nearby camps to matches.

What’s a Typical Day Like for a Basketball Coach at Summer Camp?

Every camp is a little different, and every day is usually different to the one before, but that’s all part of the fun of Summer Camp.

Working as a Basketball Coach at Summer Camp, you’ll be spending time coaching campers, helping them to improve their skills, and helping to run matches and events.

Camp’s not all work though, so there’s plenty of opportunities to get involved with all the fun and excitement that camp has to offer.

From spending time around campfires tucking into traditional camp food to getting competitive at Colour War, there’s always something going on!

If you’d like to have a look through an example day that we’ve put together, head over to our Typical Day at Summer Camp timeline.

What Qualifications do Basketball Coaches at Summer Camp Need?

If you’ve got your Level 1 or Level 2 Basketball Coaching qualification, then you’ll be in demand!

Don’t worry if you don’t have a formal qualification though.

If you’ve got good experience playing the game – at a local club or with college or university – then you could still work at camp teaching basketball.
