Smokin’ Joe’s Basketball Camp
Welcome to the Smokin Joe’s Basketball camp !!! Here is where we pay tribute to our founder/creator of J Smith Hoops, the eldest brother of the J Smith Hoops Team, Joe Smith. Joe is the oldest of 5 siblings (Joe, Jason, Jaime, Jordan, Jada) and started J Smith Hoops nearly 20 years ago, with a goal of having a family business where everyone could work together in the same community that helped shape the family on and off the court. This 4 day camp focuses on all of the lessons learned over the years to the Smith Family, that helped all 5 siblings receive full basketball scholarships, including the 3 boys playing professional basketball. Director, Coach Jason Smith, has taken the principles defined from this original camp and made it a year around basketball experience that has impacted thousands in the Birmingham community, the south and even around the World. We use the 4 day, 8 hour per day camp to build your game and from the ground up. Whether you are an experienced player or a beginner, we use the spacious facility at Hoover High School to divide players to what best fits their needs. From fundamentals, competitive play and our specialty of really learning how to play the game, the J Smith Hoops coaching staff excels at going beyond the basics. The Birmingham community has supported this camp for nearly 20 years, and we are excited for the next 20.
