Bank$hot Basketball are youth camps throughout the state of Georgia which teaches kids about the details of basketball and financial literacy. Bank$hot was introduced with the premise of exposing our children to alternate and subsequent career possibilities in the athletic field and professional sports arena. Our student-athletes can expect a high intensity fun level of learning about the details of basketball. The goal is to keep the ratio (10:1) low for proper instruction and individual attention.
The principle basics of dribbling, shooting, passing, and defense as well as establishing a mental competitive edge will all be comprised within drills and games throughout the day. Our team building sessions will allow our kids to become the total team player; the total package.
We have allowed our coaches to use their own unique teaching skills to create a fun working environment for kids to learn.

The financial literacy program we use is based on the FDIC Money Smart Program taught by our partners of OPERATION HOPE. Financial literacy is establishing and maintaining healthy finances and understanding the basic rules of personal finance. In our financial program, our athletes will learn how to save, spend, and invest their funds. Our goal is to teach children about finances at an early age to provide them with necessary tools that will facilitate a successful future. Our athletes will be able to see professional athletes at their highest level and careers surrounding athletes. This visual will allow them to understand and grasp the importance of business acumen and entrepreneurship at an early age.
