As it enters its 21nd year, the Prairie du Chien Perimeter Camp is staffed by many of the finest coaches and players in the Midwest. Over 400 campers and coaches attended the individualized instruction basketball camp in 2017. In addition to Coach Larson, Coach Banasik, Coach Orr,  and Coach Boos high school varsity boys' and girls' coaches from Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois bring their talents to Perimeter Camp. The camp staff is supplemented by college basketball players from some of the finest Division II and Division III college programs in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

At camp we help players to understand what factors lead to excellent perimeter play. Each session is focused on techniques and skills that are crucial to good play. We want each player to return with new ideas, drills, workouts and to be more inspired, dedicated and effective.

These are some of the topics we cover at camp:

  • Goal Setting
  • Creating shots for teammates
  • Attacking gaps
  • Passing the basketball vs. pressure
  • Promoting teamwork
  • Breaking pressure & veering off defenders
  • Scoring off the dribble
  • Getting to the basket
  • Focusing concentration & increasing confidence
