Youth Basketball Camps and Academies Participation in a youth basketball camp or academy can result in a young athlete exceeding maximum weekly participation guidelines.
Camp program content and duration is variable, and youth basketball camps can be a positive experience for young athletes even in cases where they exceed the guidelines above. Camp directors should, however, keep the guidelines above in mind and seek to include activities other than organized oncourt basketball participation, particularly for longer-duration camps. We recommend additional rest for young athletes following camp attendance to allow for recovery prior to resuming organized basketball sessions or attendance at another camp.
Youth sports academies that provide more comprehensive training experiences for young athletes also exist, particularly outside the United States. As with camps, the curriculum, training protocols and health and wellness resources at academies are also variable.
This is particularly true for academies that include athletes that have not yet reached the ninth grade. Camps and academies should recognize that there is a lack of evidence to support early single-sport specialization. The overall effects on the health and well-being of young athletes of longer-duration camps and youth academies require further study.
Delay specialization in basketball until at least age Playing multiple sports helps kids make new friends and develop new skills. Playing multiple sports should not be viewed as falling behind, but rather as building the foundation for future success. Research shows that early sport specialization is NOT necessary to produce elite-level performance. Sports Sampling Sports sampling, which is characterized by participation in multiple sports during childhood, provides a young athlete the chance to find a sport that may ultimately fit him or her best.
There are several demonstrated benefits of sports sampling: Prolonged engagement in sports More enjoyable and positive early sports experiences Healthy physical, psychological, and social development Transfer of skills acquired from multiple sports to primary sport if specialization occurs Current research does not support the view that early single-sport specialization is either necessary or sufficient to produce elite performance at advanced levels of competition.
In fact, early single-sport specialization in basketball and other team sports may be detrimental to long-term elite performance. Athletes that reach the highest level of achievement have been shown to be more likely to have played multiple sports at a young age compared to athletes that reach relatively lower levels of achievement. With respect to basketball and other similar ball sports, world-class athletes often delayed single-sport specialization until age 16 or later.

- About These Guidelines
Promote personal engagement in youth basketball and other sports. Sports provide opportunities for children and adolescents to connect with others, build meaningful relationships and take on challenges and leadership roles that promote overall personal development and well-being.
Youth sports should include both organized and informal, peer-led activities. Peer-led activities allow children freedom to create and challenge themselves.
In addition to having structured practices and competitions, basketball organizations should encourage informal, peer-led opportunities for individual growth. Youth should participate in a variety of sports. Sport sampling during childhood provides a foundation for long-term success, often by allowing young athletes a chance to find a sport that they enjoy and that may ultimately fit them best. For the sport of basketball, multi-sport participation in youth can help an athlete be a better basketball player.
Delay single-sport specialization in the sport of basketball until age 14 or older. Participation in multiple sports in early childhood is beneficial from a player health and player development perspective. Athletes that reach the highest level of achievement are more likely to have played multiple sports at a young age and delayed single-sport specialization until late adolescence.
Studies of world-class athletes in basketball and other team ball sports have demonstrated that top performing athletes often delayed single-sport specialization until age 16 or later. Thus, delaying specialization until this age range is recommended.
