Kessel Heat Summer Camps

Camp Descriptions:

Shooting & Ball Handling: This program concentrates on the breakdown of the shooting technique. Coach Dennis Kessel's shooting philosophy has proven highly successful in analyzing and improving a players shooting ability. Our coaches do not only do drills; they also break down and reinforce the proper techniques for shooting accuracy. You will also learn the proper jump shot and how to beat your man off the dribble.

Team Play Offensive Skills: These sessions allow players to perform at a more competitive level. Players will be drilled in one-on-one, two-on-two and four-on four situations. Players will learn how to use shot fakes, dribble moves and moving without the ball. These sessions are highly recommended for players who have already completed the shooting and ball handling sessions.

Please Note: Lunch break will be provided from 11:00-11:30pm for kids doing the Bonus Offer and All Day Camp. Please bring your own lunch and drink. A water bottle is also suggested to bring for each day of camp.

PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN BASKETBALL WITH YOUR NAME ON IT TO SUMMER CAMP

Great article on a few Kessel players of our own! Congrats....

Expect these players to blossom in 2017- 18

There are al­ways new play­ers set to raise their level of play in high school basketball.

Here are seven play­ers who, through their pro­duc­tiv­ity last sea­son and their strong play on the club cir­cuit this spring, are ready to take a big step for­ward.

Quin­lan Ben­nett, Pro­viso East

Ben­nett’s pro­duc­tion last sea­son ( 14 points, five re­bounds, three as­sists per game) went largely un­no­ticed be­cause of Pro­viso East’s un­char­ac­ter­is­tic 15- 13 record, but the 6- 2 ju­nior point guard is only get­ting bet­ter. He plays well in iso­la­tion, thrives in tran­si­tion and will be the next Di­vi­sion I player out of this peren­nial basketball power.

Branden El­lis, War­ren

A bro­ken fin­ger slowed El­lis at the start of his ju­nior sea­son, but he be­came a ma­jor weapon for War­ren in the sec­ond half. The 6- 3 shoot­ing guard has con­tin­ued to make strides this spring, but he re­mains one of the un­sung play­ers in the area. He is set to be one of the break­out play­ers in the Class of 2018.

Ryan Davis, Co­nant

Davis has been a fix­ture for three years at the var­sity level but be­came a known com­mod­ity af­ter a ju­nior sea­son in which he av­er­aged 14.5 points and 9.5 re­bounds. Af­ter play­ing sec­ond fid­dle to se­nior star Jimmy So­tos last sea­son, look for the 6- 8 Davis to emerge as one of the true dif­fer­ence- makers in the state in 2017- 18.

Mor­gan Tay­lor, Marist

Team­mate Mau­rice Com­man­der was the East Sub­ur­ban Catholic Con­fer­ence’s player of the year last sea­son, but it’s time to sing Tay­lor’s praises. The 6- 2 ju­nior is a jack- of- all- trades guard who fills the stat sheet and has shown con­sis­tent im­prove­ment in the last two years.

Zach Toussaint, Johns­burg

There aren’t many play­ers in the state who shoot the ball bet­ter than Toussaint, who made 96 three- point­ers as a sopho­more last sea­son. Af­ter putting to­gether a mon­ster sea­son ( 22 points, 4.2 re­bounds and 3.2 as­sists per game) in 2016- 17, the 5- 10 guard is poised to be­come a big­ger name as a ju­nior.

Charles Hoehne, Oak Park

With Jared Scott and Cam Gross grad­u­at­ing from a team that won 24 games, ex­pect Hoehne to emerge in 2017- 18. The 6- 6 sopho­more is an over­looked and in­trigu­ing tal­ent who plays with en­ergy and ef­fort. He has size, skill and an enor­mous up­side.

Nate Fer­gu­son, Le­mont

The 6- 7 sopho­more’s 16- point per­for­mance in the re­gional fi­nal last sea­son against Bol­ing­brook was a sign of things to come. The up- and- com­ing Fer­gu­son is a ver­sa­tile offensive player who can ex­ploit mis­matches be­cause of his abil­ity to play in­side and out.Top of Form
