Charlotte’s Most Popular Holiday Basketball Camp Is About To Start


In a few weeks, Dilworth’s Covenant Presbyterian Church will be hosting a one-of-a-kind basketball camp for both boys and girls.

Charlotte Magazine recently named Yes I Can Basketball to their prestigious 2017 “Best Of The Best” award for their impressive year-round youth basketball programs.

For the past six years, they’ve hosted their popular Christmas Holiday basketball camp in Dilworth on the campus of Covenant Presbyterian Church located at 1000 East Morehead Street. This year’s camp will be held Tuesday – Friday December 26th – 29th.

The four day camp offers two convenient sessions. The 9am – Noon morning session is for boys only ages 6-9 while the 1pm – 4pm afternoon session is for boys and girls ages 9-12.

Directed by former college basketball head coach Dan McGovern, Yes I Can Basketball has been serving the youth of Charlotte since 1997. Their camps have earned the reputation of being popular: and for good reason! They are jam-packed with serious teaching for the player who is hungry to improve and get better, but they’re also chalked full of fun and competitive games.

The Yes I Can Basketball staff members are carefully hand selected.

They are mostly former college players or current area high school players that are simply able to “click” with younger players by making the training fun and motivating. “Our staff members are more like youth ministers that’ve had way too much caffeine!” said McGovern “It’s very obvious the purpose of the camp is for boys and girls to learn and improve their skills – but ample time is devoted to games and contests to make it fun.”

This all purpose camp will focus on teaching fundamentals of the game like shooting, defense, offensive moves, ball handling, dribbling, passing, screening, moving without the ball to get open. Because players are grouped according to their skill level and age, this camp is appropriate for players of all experience levels.

Cost for the four day camp is $149, which includes a camp gift. For detailed information and to enroll visit their website Caution: This camp fills up quickly. For questions call 704 442 1238
