Other Camps and Opportunities

Midwest 3 on 3

Midwest 3 on 3 is a league for the players. Kids need to enjoy the sport to want to improve. The league's key focus is FUN! This is an opportunity to develop basketball skills in a fun, low-stress environment. They encourage healthy competition in which kids play hard and play to win but not at the expense of belittling opponents, yelling at officials or displaying poor sportsmanship.

The leagues take place in many locations throughout the year, with opportunities in the Elk River area generally in the spring.

Timberwolves and Lynx Camps

Johnny Tauer's

Camps will take place at some of the state's finest basketball facilities:  University of St. Thomas' new Anderson Athletic and Recreation Complex, St. Thomas' McCarthy Gyms,  Macalester's brand new athletic complex, and the state of the art Colin Powell Center (Cristo Rey High School). We will also be holding half-day and beginner's camps at Nativity Grade School. We look forward to seeing you this summer!!
