Learn about The Camp

Welcome to the Midwest Basketball Skills Academy's website.  As we begin our fourth summer of offering quality basketball instruction to players throughout the Midwest (formerly the Kim English Basketball Camps), we are excited about our camp schedule for 2015.

The goal of the Midwest Basketball Skills Academy is to assist every child in becoming the best basketball player he or she can become.  The Academy focuses on developing and improving each camper's fundamental basketball skills in a demanding and fun environment that inspires our next generation of basketball stars.

Kim is transitioning into Division I coaching and has entrusted David Devaney to continue his mission of developing and improving the advancement of your basketball in the State of Missouri and beyond.

Helping Coach Devaney will be a staff of current players from the men and women's University of Missouri's basketball teams, high school coaches and players and guest speakers from throughout the country.  To provide each camper with every opportunity to excel, the quality of the staff will be unmatched by any other camp in the Midwest.

In advance, thank you for signing up your son or daughter or team to one of our camps.  We believe that your child's life will benefit both on and off the court by attending our Midwest Basketball Skills Academy.
