Our Camps

What makes our camps different from the rest?

The South Texas All-Star Basketball Camp has built a 30-year reputation of excellent supervision, organization and skill development.

  • Individual camper development (10:1 camper/coach ratio)
  • Individual camper participation (better than 2:1 camper/ball ratio)
  • Camp schedule allows for plenty of skill instruction, games, AND competitions
  • Heavy emphasis on fundamentals, with a heavy focus on shooting, passing, and ball-handling
  • Skills are stressed during all drills, games, and contests
  • An excellent safety record
  • Campers grouped based on age/gender to ensure great fun and competition

Our Goal

Our goal is to provide our campers with an experienced and fun coaching staff, an atmosphere that encourages learning and competition, and a motivation to continue to work on their basketball skills all while experiencing a great camp week with friends!

Our History

The South Texas All-Star Basketball Camp has built a reputation for its excellent supervision and organization in its 30 years of operation. The camp is the oldest and most prestigious in the South Texas area. It first began in 1986 with an enrollment of 90 campers. The camp has grown to be the largest camp of its kind in the Corpus Christi area, with nearly 400 campers expected this summer.

A heavy emphasis on fundamentals is a trademark of the South Texas All-Star Basketball Camp. In particular, the offensive skills of shooting, dribbling, passing, and individual moves will be stressed during drills and competitions throughout the morning and afternoon sessions. Campers are grouped by grade/gender as well as skill level for both games and drill situations.

Safety of camp participants is of utmost importance to the South Texas All-Star Basketball Camp Staff. During its 30 year history, our camp has compiled an outstanding safety record. This can be attributed to the camp's 10:1 camper to coach ratio. An excellent 2:1 camper to ball ratio allows for more hands-on opportunities and situations for each camper to learn and enjoy.
