The HSBCAMPS Morning Clinic and Day Camp ( will offer boys and girls in the elementary, middle, and high school grades (K-12), the unique opportunity to learn the game, training one-on-one with NBA players and other select pros.  Backed by a “Quality over Quantity” mentality, HSBCAMPS comprehensive curriculum ensures participants to leave camp with extensive knowledge and instruction on every aspect of his or her game.  Most impressive of all, is an industry leading 8:1 player to coach ratio, providing athletes with plenty of individualized attention from all the players and coaches in attendance.  Officially titled “Stay And Play” week by event organizers, this will be a great opportunity for all resort guests looking to “Elevate Their Game.”
