Step It Up Basketball – Sleep Away Camp

About

Step It Up Basketball Sleep Away Camp is an innovative specialized training program with an emphasis on skill development and developing the overall character of our campers.

We tackle every facet of the game, both on and off the court. Our dedicated team of coaches have developed and designed a proven program that empowers our campers, enhances their basketball skills, encourages teamwork and sportsmanship, and instills confidence in every aspect of our campers’ lives.

Campers are immersed in a variety of training from skill development to speed training, physical strength training, mental sharpness, self awareness and game theory. Our experienced and highly motivational team prepares our campers for tomorrow’s game and the road ahead.

Much more than a basketball camp, at Step It Up We take great interest in each one of our campers and challenge the boys to embrace hard work, challenge themselves intellectually and reach heights never imagined.

We take full advantage of our time with the players to instill these, and more skills as a supplement to our basketball curriculum.

our team

Step It Up coaches are experts in their areas of focus. Our staff roster brings together over 40 current and former college and professional players, coaches, and sports specialists. Each athlete is challenged to define his goals upon his arrival at camp, all while receiving encouragement and support throughout the program from our team of experts.

Our summer program offers an unparalleled 5:1 player to coach ratio.

Players are divided by age and skill level. Grades 5/6, 7/8, 9/19, 11/12, NCAA. Players work in small focused groups throughout our 200 acre campus. While 3 point guards are working on court vision and decision making and another 5 forwards are working on post moves, there are 4 more kids in a classroom working on self awareness and good morals and values that they can apply internally and out into their community. These life lessons are a staple of what we do and how we do it. Our coaches and counselors are  background checked to ensure that your child is not only coached by qualified professionals, but are also in a safe and supporting environment while away from home for the summer.

Founder and Camp Director

Owned and operated by Yogev Berdugo, a rising star in skill development and coaching in the country today. Upon founding Step It Up in 2009, we set out on a journey to advance the game of basketball. Since day one we have stayed true to our craft with an unwavering commitment to skill development, character development and daily growth. As we enter our sixth year, the hard work is paying off. The feedback from players and parents has been tremendous and the results are apparent on and off the court. Year round, Yogev, lends his expertise in consulting for high school and middle school teams by implementing different schemes, running skills clinics and designing practice plans and full season curriculums.

In the springtime, Yogev develops current and perspective NBA Players for the NBA Draft as well as European Leagues.

Yogev served as assistant men’s basketball coach at Yeshiva University where he helped build a winning tradition along with coach Elliot Steinmetz. The two established a fast paced yet methodical offense, complimented by an aggressive man to man defense which gives them a real chance to compete in the conference as well as for a spot in the illustrious March Madness – NCAA Tournament year in and year out. Yeshiva University basketball is now considered by many as one of the top division 3 teams in the NYC area and NY state while ranking top 20 nationally in assists and 3 point fg%.
