About Behn Basketball Camp
Our philosophy is to instill confidence in young players by teaching basketball fundamentals, which in turn raises their level of play and makes the game more fun to play.
Behn Basketball Camp was founded by Massachusetts basketball legend Sarah Behn in 1994. There have been over 27,000 successful graduates since Sarah started her first two week camp programs. Each year we are thrilled to see the individual development of our campers; so many of our young basketball players have gone on to play at the junior varsity, varsity and even the collegiate level.
If you are looking for an absolutely great basketball experience then you’ve come to the right place. We offer full day, half day, and overnight programs for boys and girls age 6 to 17 in more than 20 locations across Eastern Massachusetts. Your child will learn basketball the right way, improve their skills, and have fun too!
About Sarah Behn: At Foxboro High School Sarah Behn was an All-America selection in basketball and soccer. In 1989, Sarah set the Massachusetts state scoring record and scored a total of 2,562 points for her High School career. Sarah is still in the top ten scorers in the state of Massachusetts history for boys and girls. Sarah was named the Gatorade Player of the Year as a senior.
At Boston College, Sarah was the first BC woman in school history to surpass the 2,000 point plateau. She set a Big East freshman scoring record (428 points) and was the league’s “Rookie of the Year.” Sarah was the first Boston College player ever to earn All-America honors as a freshman. Sarah is the only four-time All-America basketball player in Boston College history.
As a senior at BC, Sarah became the Women’s basketball all-time leading scorer in the Big East, men or women (2,523 career points).
Sarah was inducted into the Boston College Athletic Hall of Fame in 1998. In 2003, Boston College retired Sarah’s jersey, the only female athlete at Boston College to have her jersey retired. Sarah has been Named One of Top Ten Athletes in BC History by Sports Illustrated.
After Boston College, Sarah went on to play professional basketball in Ettlebruck, Luxembourg, where she was the leading scorer in central Europe with 35 points per game.
After retiring from her playing career, Sarah founded Behn Basketball Camp. In addition to running the camps, Sarah has been a Division III and Division II college coach as well as the Varsity coach at Foxboro High School in Foxboro, MA. Currenly she is the Head Women’s Basketball Coach Brown University!
We look forward to seeing you at camp!

Nike Basketball Camp Curry College
Due to local and state regulations, we anticipate having to reduce our enrollment numbers significantly this year. You can expect a high demand on these first-come-first-serve camper spots, so please be sure to register early.
SHOOT & SCRIMMAGE
Come join us for our evening session filled with shooting drills and scrimmaging. This two-hour session will include a dynamic warm up, followed by 20-30 minutes fast pace shooting. The remaining 75-90 minutes will consist of both 3 on 3 and full court games. Sessions are geared for competitive players looking to stay sharp during the summer months. Open to all players regardless of club affiliations.
ASA and Nike Basketball Camps are geared for all ages and abilities. Campers are expected to work hard, be receptive to coaching, exhibit discipline, have a strong work ethic, and be serious about basketball. As a staff we pride ourselves in being a teaching camp first with scrimmages and contests will take place throughout the week. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability. A closing ceremony will take place on the last day prior to check-out for full day campers. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony!
Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.
A detailed camper information packet containing check-in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor’s signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. The State of Massachusetts requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.
We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

Celtics Camps | Boston Celtics
My name is Kevin and I was lucky to have attended the Celtics Camps for the last few
was equally lucky to have had the opportunity to work and develop my skills under Mr.
Amorosino. The skills I learned and utilized as a varsity player were perfected by the
drills and personal attention the camp offered.
I had a few weaknesses in my game that Mr. Amorosino worked with me on, specifically my
defensive skills. I’m 6’4” and needed to increase my foot quickness and dribbling
I worked with the staff and watched Coach Amorosino’s lectures on defense I was able to
varsity basketball games with more confidence and ability. Sportsmanship and team play
stressed at the Camps and they invite great guest speakers. Thank you once again to Joe
Amorosino and the rest of the Celtics camp staff!
Celtics Camper, Varsity Basketball Player
THANK YOU JOE!
You have been such a wonder and inspiration to all of us, particularly Hayden! He LOVES
Have a nice break – you all work so hard there!
See you next summer.
Mother of Hayden, Celtics Camper
My two boys (ages 11 and 13) have been attending Celtics Basketball Camp for the past 4
They keep going back because they love the individual attention and know they are
fundamental skills with tried and true coaches! I keep sending them back because I love
that the program builds their confidence and self-esteem and that they stress the
sportsmanship and teamwork – which translates into almost anything in life. And of
guest appearances from past and present Celtics players and an annual performance by
always a hit with everyone!
Mom of two Celtics Campers
Hi Coach Amo,
This is Eric MacKinnon from Salve Regina. I just wanted to send you an email thanking
having me work camp again this past summer. I have learned so much from your lectures
stories every day. I go home and write things down everyday that I learn and I have
pages of notes from your lectures. Coaching is something that I am already looking
after I graduate even though I have one year left of playing. I am already developing a
philosophy and can see the defensive principles that you teach being the bread and
butter of any
team I am working with. Camp has helped me develop friendships in the basketball world
would never build elsewhere. I know you are busy but I will try to stay in contact
the year. Hope you and your family are doing well. Also, if you talk to Dave at all, say
and give him my best wishes.
Celtics Camp Coach
Senior on Salve Regina Basketball Team
My daughter, a 10th grade varsity player, appreciated the fundamentals being reinforced
the week. In addition, she felt the skill building and basic training drills were key to
on at camp.
From a parent’s point of view…she returned each day excited by the positive feedback,
work and excellent coaching. I know she looks forward to the summer of 2015 to return to
Mother of Lucy, 10th grade varsity basketball player and Celtics Camper
I just had to share this with you. Shane made this ‘All about me’ poster in the first
5th grade. She made you her hero! I knew she really enjoyed your camp but I had no idea
of an impact it left. She even wrote it all down in a news story! I don’t think she got
facts right, but it sure is an interesting ‘news story’!
Thank you! It’s wonderful for my husband and I to see her so excited about basketball
the camp experience did for her self-esteem/confidence in all! She has come a long
Thank you, Coach Amo! You are truly an inspiration!
Anne and Family
Family of Shane, 5th grader and Celtics Camper
Thirty-five years ago, when I was 16, I was worried about making the JV basketball team.
attended a week of basketball camp where I learned so much to become a better player…and
the JV team. I went back to camp the next summer, went on to make the varsity team and
school award for my play.
My son, Jack, was also worried about making the JV team at his high school, so we sent
camp to learn from the very same coaches as when I had. He had a great time and formed
friendships. He also made the JV team and couldn’t wait to go back to camp.
Cowens camp reignited my and Jack’s love for basketball. We want to thank Joe Amorosino,
and Jim Bakeman for their dedication to the many young players they’ve coached. They
appreciate becoming better ball players right away; it will take a little more time for
appreciate the non-basketball gifts you have bestowed upon them.
With great appreciation and thanks,
Tom and Jack
Father and son, current and former Celtics Campers
Our son really loved camp this week, it was his first time attending and he learned SO
just 5 days!
The skills were top notch. Our son was the youngest at camp and he felt confident and
because the coaching staff was amazing. Every camper is treated equal and the individual
attention is just as important as the group and team experience.
The drills were all about learning, and it’s clear that the coaches are all about
team building. It was an incredible week for our son, a memory of a lifetime!
We thank Joe Amorosino for his gracious ability to speak to all of the parents and his
communication and customer service. He represented the camp incredibly, and we thank the
organization for this amazing memory for our son.

A Free Inclusive Summer Camp for Children with and without Disabilities
Camp Shriver is no longer accepting applications for the summer of 2021. 2022 applications will be available in January 2022.
Since 2006, Camp Shriver at the University of Massachusetts Boston has welcomed more than 1500 children, half with and half without intellectual and developmental disabilities, ages 8-12, from low-income families in the Boston area to a free inclusive summer sports camp.
While recreational programs offered by schools and community agencies may accept children with disabilities, few—if any—are designed to enroll an equal number of children with and without disabilities. That is what makes Camp Shriver at UMass Boston unique. Camp Shriver serves an equal number of children with and without disabilities so that all children can play, learn and interact in meaningful ways with their peers—no matter what their disability status.
Camp Shriver’s mission is to use sports as a vehicle to bring children with and without disabilities together so that they have the opportunity to develop their motor and social skills, create positive peer relationships and make new friends.
This year we are asking all applicants to have their classroom teachers fill out a Teacher Survey. This survey will allow us to ensure that all children who are accepted to Camp Shriver have a successful summer with us.
Please ask your child’s classroom teacher to fill out the survey before the application deadline. Download a copy of the Teacher Survey here.

90,000 Clinical case. 17 NBA representatives suffering from mental disorders – Lantern – Blogs
Aerophobia may end the career of one of the brightest newcomers – Houston forward Royce White ahead of schedule. The Lantern blog recalls similar examples from history.
Jerry West (Lakers)
Illness : clinical depression
Mr. Logo admitted his illness only last year, in his autobiography.Prior to that, the name Jerry West was associated exclusively with resounding success – one of the best players in the history of the best NBA club, multiple champion, great coach and general manager. For most of his 74 years, West had been involved with the league and received nothing but compliments in any capacity.
Mr. Klutch admitted that he suffered from depression since childhood: the most unhappy period of his life was overshadowed by regular assault from his father. At 12, West defended his sister and since then always kept a gun under the bed. “I went to sleep with the feeling that I didn’t want to live anymore. I hated myself, “- the ailment left West in his old years, when he served as vice president of the Lakers. Before that, he tried to overcome the memories of poor life in West Virginia through therapy – unsuccessfully, and then “Prozac” and work on himself – more fruitfully.
If West hadn’t told this himself, no one would have ever known. Jerry West, one of the most versatile players in NBA history, is a phenomenal fighter, a man whose astounding composure has earned him perhaps the most respected characteristic of a great basketball player – the embodiment of all the best playing qualities.
Chris Herren (Boston, Denver)
Illness : drug addiction
Chris Herren was a legend from a young age. The legend of Massachusetts, the protagonist of the book Fall River Dreams, “the guy from our yard who is destined to become a star”, was hunted by Kentucky and Duke. His future looked exclusively in rainbow colors.
Herren was incredibly confident in himself and precisely in this future: he preferred Boston College to the country’s leading basketball programs – just to be closer to home.Everything would have turned out like this, the leading magazines of the country painted the prospects opening up to the young man.
It turned out differently: Herren’s long fall lasted almost 14 years, from 94th to 2008th, and only accidentally ended successfully – only 30 seconds separated Chris from death after an overdose of cocaine.
First he was kicked out of Boston College for marijuana and cocaine. Then he was suspended from games for the Fresno State team – for heroin. Then in the haze – Herren himself told how he did not even have the strength to do something without auxiliary drugs – “Boston”, “Denver”, “Bologna”, “Galatasaray”, “Beijing”, “Braunschweig”, “Paikan” “,” Anvil “.Herren had by this point finally switched to heroin, to which pain relievers were first added, then methamphetamine. The apotheosis was not a few arrests in the mid-2000s, but an accident: Herren passed out and crashed into a pole in his car.
His wife pulled him out. In 2008, Herren left the clinic clean and has since published the book “Basketball Junkie”, made several films and organized programs for young basketball players.
Illness : clinical depression, alcohol dependence
The life and career of Rodman was predetermined by childhood in a poor family surrounded by many sisters: young Dennis could not find himself, felt uncomfortable in his own body, suspected homosexuality in himself, was painfully embarrassed by women and generally felt uncomfortable in the world.College he was somehow helped to survive the actually adopted family of his best friend, the period in “Pistons” – Chuck Daley. After an unsuccessful marriage, Rodman approached the most important crossroads of his life: he was going to shoot himself, but then changed his mind – he decided to kill “the impostor who makes him not live the way he wants. ” When the police found Rodman in the morning, sleeping with a gun in his arms, he was a different person.
The further history of one of the most charismatic players in the NBA is well known.He drank until 6 in the morning, then went out to the site and destroyed some Karl Malone, became a five-time NBA champion and conquered the whole world with his tattoos and hairstyles, published a couple of bestsellers and was seen with the most beautiful women in the world, acted in films and repeatedly got into police, sported a bride’s dress and burst into tears at the induction into the Hall of Fame, was treated for alcoholism, but remained always true to himself.
Ron Artest (Indiana, Lakers)
Illness : Borderline Personality Disorder
The whole world recognized Ron Artest in 2004: the Indiana forward climbed into the stands of Auburn Hills and threw a couple of punches at the local fans: before that, one of them tried to pour beer on him.
Five years later, Artest ended up in the Lakers. Under the spotlight, he turned from an incomprehensible schizophrenic with dangerous inclinations into a hero of Los Angeles: Artest was happy to talk about his difficult childhood in Queens, from which it all began (on the basketball court, one of the players was killed with a leg from the table), recalled how he used to be during breaks ran after Hennessy, confessed his love for cockroaches, with which you feel not so lonely, thanked the therapist for the progress.
Ron Artest changed: he organized a program for mental health, started acting in films, traveling around the world and trying to do something good – he became Metta World Peace.Only the Lakers fans are unhappy: from one of the best defenders in the league, who would rather bite your hand than let you go to the ring, Artest has turned into a funny smiling bodybuilder.
Disease : PTSD Combat Syndrome
Bob Delaney, one of the league’s most famous referees, was a police officer in his youth. In the 70s, he worked undercover, infiltrating the New Jersey mafia under the pseudonym “Bobby Covert” (or, as the bandits called him, “Bobby Smash”).In 1981, after more than 100 criminal trials that ended in timeframes, he retired. But only the past did not let him go for a long time: psychological help helped Delaney overcome all the consequences of difficult work and gave him the opportunity to start all over again. Since 1987, he has been working in the NBA and at the same time trying to help those who have the same problems – until recently, Delaney came to Iraq, where he talked with the American military.
Keyon Dooling (Boston)
Disease : PTSD
In the summer, Keyon Dooling played on the court next to his house.One of the neighbors thought that an unknown man was behaving too aggressively, and he called the police: after a while, a respected NBA veteran was lying on the doorstep of his own house, and his life was changing rapidly – yesterday he was a Boston player, then there was a mental hospital, the program rehabilitation, retirement, public explanation.
As a child, Dooling was a victim of sexual abuse, and his deeply hidden problems surfaced many years later. Now Keyon has returned to the Celtics in a new capacity – as a personal trainer – and is trying to rebuild his life.
Michael Beasley (Miami)
Illness : drug addiction
Miami had almost no choice: Derrick Rose went first in the draft, Beasley was head and shoulders above the rest – he needed to be given a chance.
Doubts arose just two months later: a fire alarm went off in the freshman camp, and the police officers who had come smelled the smell of marijuana in the room of Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur. Although Beasley didn’t seem to be there, two weeks later, Pat Riley fined the rookie $ 50,000.
In the future, the figure of Beasley with translucent eyes was consistently associated with grass in everyone. The difficult season, in which the forward did not live up to expectations, ended on a sad note: the dubious statements on Twitter were followed by an epic photo of a tattoo on the back, in the background there was something very reminiscent of marijuana. On this, Twitter fell silent, and a few days later Beasley ended up in a rehab clinic in Houston.
This story never ends.Despite numerous claims of overcoming addiction and new ambitions, Beasley also came across marijuana and participated in unpleasant incidents with fans.
He himself wants to be looked at with different eyes. But he is mostly seen as one of the clearest examples of the need to raise the age limit for NBA players.
Illness : bipolar disorder
West was considered just a funny freak.Before he was stopped by the traffic police for speeding and found in the trunk of a motorcycle a 9mm Beretta, a 357 Magnum and a Remington 870 pump-action shotgun. Where Delonte was in such a hurry with such an impressive arsenal, he did not explain. But he said that he just forgot to take the pills.
Then everything was clear. And periodic breakdowns on partners, and missing earnings for seven years in the NBA, and constantly giving food for thought Twitter.
Two consecutive suspensions from the team ended West’s career at Dallas.On his Twitter, he already wrote that he is ready to play almost for food, but so far it does not seem that there is at least someone in the league who will covet Delonte’s talents, in the same package with which there are also unpredictable problems. West also cannot go abroad: he is still serving a suspended sentence.
Kendall Gill (Seattle)
Illness : clinical depression
Kendall Gill was doing well. A set of loving parents, University of Illinois, 5th pick – he spoiled his reputation somewhat when he started to build his worth in the Sha Lott and moved to Seattle.But then the contract (3.8 million) and everything that goes with it now seems ridiculous.
Everything was fine until the moment when he met with coach Karl. Under his leadership, he spent two seasons and ended up in a hospital: Gill suffered from insomnia and a constant desire to kill the coach, who daily reproached him for the inadequacy of the game and salary. When Gill was brought back to normal, the Sonics rushed to get rid of him.
Greg Stimsma (Boston, Minnesota)
Illness : clinical depression
Stimsme was diagnosed in college.A guy from a tiny town came to the University of Wisconsin and could not stand the load of piled up problems: first there was a serious injury, then an increasingly worsening situation with academic performance. Stimsma hid his troubles from almost everyone, but this only resulted in a psychological disorder. Which, fortunately for the young player, was noticed by his university coach. Thanks to him, Greg got the chance to stay in college, solve problems with the help of a therapist and return to basketball.
The lesson was learned so hard that even Kevin Garnett could not bring it to tears.
Eddie Griffin (Houston, Minnesota)
Illness : alcohol dependence
Eddie Griffin was in trouble before the 2001 draft. While still in college, the forward had a fight with a team-mate and seriously smashed his head. After that, he had to go to the draft.
After the first season, the whole story surfaced: alcohol addiction prevented Griffin from showing up for training and traveling with the team – first he was expelled from the Rockets, then from the Nets.Then there was a rehabilitation clinic, a game for Minnesota, an accident when Eddie drove into a parked car drunk, expulsion and another accident, now fatal (Griffin drove onto the road and was hit by a train).
Illness : alcohol dependence
Baker came to the league as the “top secret of America” - he burst into the NBA and received his main award in 97, when he was traded for then-strongest forward Sean Kemp.It was the peak of a rapidly ending career: after the lockout, Baker will never look like himself – weight problems will seem like flowers after the recognition of alcohol addiction. The clinic did not help: Baker was expelled from Boston, then from Houston, then from Minnesota. Then he was detained for driving while intoxicated. It was the end.
Baker is currently an assistant coach at the school.
Jason Caffey (Milwaukee)
Disease : nervous disorder
Jason Caffey was always in sight: he lacked stars from the sky, but he played a prominent role in the best team in the history of the league.With the bulls, the forward won two champion titles and could have taken a third, but in the middle of the season he was sent to Golden State.
Caffey’s mental problems began in 2002: panic attacks could have gone unnoticed if it had not been for a fight at the strip club – along with Gary Payton and Sam Cassell, Caffey did not share something with the dancers, their friends and guards and inflicted on everyone present injuries. The incident, which took place against the backdrop of a severe disorder, effectively marked the end of a career.
In 2007, however, Caffey was again in the spotlight: he was arrested for not paying alimony to eight women at once, from whom he has 10 children. He declared himself bankrupt, and did not specify where about 15 million earned during his career went.
Luther Wright (Utah)
Illness : bipolar disorder
When Utah selected Luther Wright in the 93 draft, everyone expected the big man to be the perfect complement to the super duo Stockton-Malone.The center, however, this very fact was enough: having signed a contract for 5 million, he began to do what the NBA players did – he smoked weed, and then switched to heavier drugs, drank whiskey, met girls, studied music, forgetting about basketball … When he rode his bike around his hometown, barefoot, without a shirt, in a terrible state, and then cut off his toes (to test sensitivity), no one suspected anything. When he began to rush to cars and trash cans, those around him sounded the alarm: after half a season, Wright ended up in a psychiatric hospital with a disappointing diagnosis.
He left the walls of the clinic in 1996 and now plays and sings in a church ensemble. From his career in the NBA, there were only 153 thousand a year, which the Jazz are obliged to pay him for 25 years, two missing toes and the memory of how Karl Malone stuffed pistachios into his sleeping mouth.
John Drew (Atlanta, Utah)
Illness : drug addiction
John Drew became the first player in NBA history to receive a life ban for using illegal drugs.We can say that he was lucky: the suspension occurred solely because in the same year one of the most significant events for the league happened – the death of Lena Bayas from an overdose. The League decided to seriously deal with the problem and started with Drew: by that time, he was repeatedly arrested with cocaine, forced into treatment and caught again. But after the death of almost the most talented newcomer of the 80s, the question became an edge: it became clear that talking about 30 percent of players who are addicted to drugs is not just talk.
Before things got critical, Drew played quite well at Atlanta, went to the All-Star Games twice, shone on the floor and was traded for Dominic Wilkins.
He now lives in Houston and works as a taxi driver.
Chris Washburn (Golden State, Atlanta)
Illness : drug addiction
According to coaches, Chris Washburn ruined his career in the NBA mainly because of his own attitude, but formally he fits: his professional performance ended due to drug addiction, which led to a ban on playing in the league.
Washburn came to the NBA with a whole bunch of problems: there were legends about his academic failure in college (he himself told how coaches advised him to just tick the boxes at random, since teachers adjusted the scores to athletes), he was caught stealing and sentenced to a suspended sentence ( and 46 hours in prison), but everyone probably knew about his laziness.
All this did not prevent Golden State from taking the player under the number 3. Six months later, he ended up in a drug treatment clinic, fleeing cocaine.After two more years of stagnation on the bench by the Warriors and the Hawks, he was banned from the league, arguing that he had failed three drug tests in three years.
Now all of Washburn’s problems are a thing of the past: He lives in Hickory and runs his own restaurant.
Royce White (Houston)
Illness : obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorder
Royce White is a unique case for many reasons.No athlete’s mental health disorder has ever been so well documented. And it seems that over the past fifteen years, only LeBron James in his first season enjoyed such attention from the press.
About White, whose medical history stretches from the age of 10, it seems, everything is known: how he changed schools and universities, how he tried to find himself outside basketball, independently learning to play the piano and professionally taking up music, how he was caught stealing, how his problems led to conflicts in the team, how because of his fear of flying he traveled to the matches of the university teams by bus, they even made a short but very expressive film about him.
