Basketball Prep School: Hoops Course Stresses Off-Court Life Skills
“We don’t even really like to call it a basketball camp,” Watsa said. “This teaches not only what to do on the court but who you want to be in life. It’s far more than skills. It’s the pursuit of excellence.”

Two-time Point Guard College graduate, and Butler point guard, Ronald Nored, normally leads his team on the court, but now the college player is coaching an AAU summer travel team. If Ronald Nored ever becomes a college basketball coach, he won’t be a facsimile of Butler’s Brad Stevens.

Thomas was one of 65 athletes invited to the camp which was specially designed to teach basketball players to play the game intelligently, to train purposefully, to be “coaches on the court,” and to be true leaders during games, in practice, during the off-season, and in everyday life.
