Youth Basketball Terms Commonly Misunderstood by Parents

It’s common in youth basketball for parents to choose events only to be disappointed about a number of things (lack of drills… etc). When choosing camps/clinics/showcase please under stand the youth basketball terms being used as this will explain what the event will consist of.

Here are common definitions for your understanding.

Rankings: a position in a scale of achievement or status; a classification.
Exposure: the condition of being presented to view or made known
Basketball Clinic: a meeting at which basketball players receive special evaluation and instruction
Clinic: meeting for diagnosis of problems and instruction or remedial work in a particular activity
Instruction: detailed information telling how something should be done, operated, or assembled.
Drill: to fix something in the mind or habit pattern of by repetitive instruction
Showcase: to show the best qualities or parts of something
Elite: a select part of a group that is superior to the rest in terms of ability or qualities.
Phenom: a person who is outstandingly talented or admired, especially an up-and-comer.

Elite Showcase: is a select part of a group that is superior to the rest in terms of ability or qualities to show the best qualities.

DONT GO TO AN ELITE SHOWCASE LOOKING FOR a BASKETBALL CLINIC!!!!

Know the terms choose the right events.
