ABOUT

Building on the success of our inaugural camp in 2018 and our sophomore camp in 2019, we are again bringing together some of the best dunkers and trainers in the world to teach the secrets of dunking and jumping at The Dunk Camp 2020. At The Dunk Camp, you will learn how to:

  • Warm-up

  • Jump (approach​, arm-swing, penultimate step, take-off, and landing)

  • Dunk (basic through advanced)

  • Train properly

  • Recover

  • Stretch

  • Think properly and use visualization

  • Eat right

  • Avoid injuries

  • Recover from injuries

Each participant will be pre and post tested on their vertical jump and jump technique. This data will be kept in our Dunker Database and will allow you to see how you compare with other dunkers similar to how P3 is able to compare NBA athletes. Every aspect of jumping and dunking is broken down and studied to accelerate learning and progress. Each athlete receives a 12 week training program to take home to continue their training and building on what they learned at camp.

At the end of the camp, participants will get to show off their hops in a dunk contest (low rims and regulation) judged by our pro dunkers for sweet prizes and bragging rights.

The Dunk Camp finale will be an epic Dunk Show put on by our pro dunkers and the top dunker from the camp. All attendees from the camp can participate during warm-ups where they can try to land their first dunk or new dunks!

Do you have hotel recommendations?

Yes!

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Lehi - Thanksgiving Point
3701 N Ashton Blvd
Lehi, Utah 84043

Rate: $100/night (including taxes and fees)

Booking instructions: Choose the hotel option when paying the registration fee for an additional $250 per person. Room rate is $100/night x 5 nights = $500 split with another person = $250 per person. We will arrange for you to share with 1 other attendee (roommate requests are welcome). 

If you want to stay here but not share a room or have family or friends that want to book a room, call the hotel (385-336-8384) and reserve under The Dunk Camp room block or you can book online at this link

 

This hotel has great reviews, serves a very nice hot breakfast (eggs, waffle station, fruit, etc.), and has indoor pool and hot tub. The Holiday Inn is about a 10 minute drive (shuttle is available).

I am coming from out of town. What airport should I fly into?

Fly into the Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). The airport is located about 35 miles from the training facility.

I am coming from out of town. When should I arrive and depart?

The camp starts at 8:00 am on Monday, June 21. We recommend arriving on Sunday, June 20 or before then if you are travelling from overseas. The camp will end with The Dunk Show on Thursday, June 25 at 9:00 pm. We recommend departing the next day on Friday, June 26.

If you sign-up for The Dunk Camp with the hotel cost included (Holiday Inn Express), your hotel reservation will be for checking in on Sunday, June 20 and checking out on Friday, June 26. If you need additional hotel nights, there will be an additional cost and will need to be arranged in advance. Email andy@thedunkcamp.com to adjust your hotel reservation and arrange payment for the extra days.

I am coming from out of town. How do you recommend getting from the airport to my hotel and getting around? Should I rent a car? 

Renting a car will give you the most flexibility but of course cost the most. There is public transportation available from the airport by both train and bus but has limited hours on weekends and can be a little confusing (requires multiple transfers). Visit www.rideuta.com for more details.

Our recommendation is to take Uber or Lyft and if possible share with at least one other person. If you would like to share a ride, send an email to andy@thedunkcamp.com and he will try to arrange ground transportation with a few others who have flights arriving and departing around the same time to help everyone save money.
 

Will there be a shuttle from the camp hotel to the facility?

Yes. If you stay at the Holiday Inn Express, there is a shuttle available (10 minute drive). If you stay anywhere else, you will need to arrange your own transportation to the facility.

Will any food be provided?

We will provide lunch and light snacks each day of the camp. You are welcome and encouraged to bring extra food and drinks. If you stay at the camp hotel (Holiday Inn Express), breakfast is included in your stay and there are several restaurants located nearby.
 

How many athletes will be attending The Dunk Camp?

To allow for as much individual coaching as possible, we are capping registration at 75 athletes.

Do I need to be able to dunk in order to attend The Dunk Camp?

No! That is one of the main reasons we created The Dunk Camp! At our first two camps, roughly only half of the attendees could already dunk on 10'. We have had 8 attendees so far land their very first dunk at The Dunk Camp which has been very special to be a part of! We anticipate many more landing their first dunks at our camp. We also have low-rim dunk sessions and contests!

How many inches will I gain on my vertical jump if I attend The Dunk Camp?

That is impossible to predict. However, 81% of our attendees at our 2018 and 2019 camp increased their no-step vertical jump from Day 1 to Day 4. And 75% of our attendees increased their full approach vertical jump from Day 1 to Day 4. With that said, most of your progress will happen after The Dunk Camp by following your 12 week training plan and applying what you learned at camp.

Will I be able to dunk by the end of The Dunk Camp?

We will have low and regulation rims so everyone will be throwing down sick dunks regardless of their current ability! :) At our 2 camps so far, we have had 8 athletes dunk for the very first time on 10 feet and even more guys land new dunks they had never done before! We anticipate a few athletes landing their first dunk at each of our camps which is an epic memory we are grateful to be part of. Check out this video of Jeht Perry's first dunk at our 2018 camp. What a moment!
