Thank you for your interest in the Wildcat Hoop Camp!
The Wildcat Hoop Camp is run by the Wilsonville High boys basketball coaching staff along with current and former players.
Many camps teach basketball fundamentals and do some things that are similar to our activities at the Wildcat Hoop Camp. The WHC is THE basketball camp for boys going into the 3rd - 11th grades who want to play Wildcat Basketball someday, because it is the ONLY camp on the planet that in every way comes from the Wildcat perspective, emphasizes the core values Wildcat Basketball holds dear, and begins the process of teaching our kids what it means to be a student/athlete in the Wildcat Basketball program. It is, in fact, a week jam-packed with many fun and important things Wildcat Basketball...from the program's Five Pillars, to daily Wildcat-focused speakers, to offensive philosophies and defensive schemes... it's a crash course on Wildcat Basketball!
Camp runs 9am-2pm each day.
On the first day of camp, it is helpful if you arrive by 8:20-8:30 to allow plenty of time for check-in for all. Tuesday-Thursday, please arrive by 8:45am.
Campers need to bring a sack lunch. The Boosters kindly open the Concessions Stand each day during our lunch break to supplement a camper's lunch, but extra money is required for that.
We encourage families to send their sons with plenty of fluids. Staying hydrated is STRONGLY encouraged and emphasized; we are playing a LOT of basketball during camp week, and it sometimes can be very warm in the gyms. Staying properly hydrated is critical.
Campers need to dress in basketball-appropriate clothing and shoes.
Basketballs are NOT required.
All campers will receive a camp t-shirt, and team division winners as well as individual contest winners will receive nominal but fun prizes.
Teams are made, and as our kids know and love, "trades" are then often consummated by teams...often, there is little rhyme or reason for these trades. Our kids "get this" and typically enjoy it thoroughly. Please do not read anything more into any trades than just that, because if you do, you will be mis-reading the entire entertainment focus of these quasi-transactions.
After years of accommodating refunds without any questions, the practice of signing up for camp and then canceling at the last minute unfortunately by 2019 had grown out of control. This creates staffing, planning and safety issues for our kids as we try to anticipate how many will be there for camp week. Getting 5-10 "crises" that have come up the night before camp has worn thin. Therefore, in 2020 and going forward, there will be a $25 fee assessed on all refund requests for the time and energy it involves and the time it wastes, and no refunds will be issued following the Thursday before camp begins. We don't love doing this and we want to be accommodating to all of our families, but the practice of flippantly canceling has real costs on our end and we hope these new refund policies will help stem the tide of this rather irresponsible practice.
