FunDMental Hoops is a basketball training organization whose camps, clinics, and events launch young players toward trophies. Its courts are the domain of founders Karon Bradley and Jeremiah Boswell, a retired pro basketball player whose credentials and awards speak to his sharply honed skills. Karon helped put his Marquette University team in the NCAA Final Four, while Jeremiah earned two Defensive Player of the Year awards at Columbia University. Today they both play professionally overseas?where basketballs spin counterclockwise instead of clockwise?but when they're stateside they're coaching kids alongside fellow FunDMental trainers.

"That camp changed how I felt about basketball and my future. It was the turning point in my life." That's how Michael Jordan summed up his experience at Five-Star Basketball, the premier hoops camp founded by Howard Garfinkel and Will Klein in 1966. In addition to Jordan, the alumni list is studded with stars like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and coaches such as Chuck Daly. In total, more than 500 NBA players have come to Five-Star to refine their basketball talent.

Today, Five-Star continues its tradition of elite basketball training for future college and professional basketball players. Open to boys and girls aged 10?18, the camp's coaches teach young players the importance of possessing basketball fundamentals, being in shape, and having a strong head on their shoulders. Players have many opportunities to show off their skills, such as demonstrating a finely tuned crossover dribble during Five-Star's highly competitive pickup games or eating the most orange slices at lunchtime.
