Date: August 28, 29 & 31
Time: 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Cost: FREE by referral
Meals: A snack & water is provided
Location: New Hope Academy Gym, Concord

The camp is more than just about basketball. The supporting organizations invite kids who have displayed leadership characteristics, determination, integrity and compassion in their approach to the world. Basketball athleticism plays only a small part in the selection.

You might think we’re crazy to tell you that a significant life change can happen at a basketball skills camp. And even crazier to say that you’ll see the difference in your kids after just a few short days.

But you don’t have to take our word for it.

What Parents Are Saying...

Level Up Sports Academy - Wendy Pratt

At such a critical point in my son’s life he was a positive and inspiring role model.  Coach Flitter has the ability to delicately balance being a demanding coach with positive and motivating messaging.

Level Up Sports Academy - Karen Johnston

Bill Flitter was my son’s CYO Basketball head coach from 3rd through 8th grade and the experience was extremely positive. Practices were well organized, challenging,  and there was no wasted time.

Level Up Sports Academy

Our daughter had the privilege of Bill Flitter coaching her first year of CYO Basketball. She came into the program with just one year of experience so there was the need to learn skills and technique. With Bill’s approach, coaching experience and patience he was able to capture the attention of several 8 year old girls.

Frank Allocco joins the administrative staff of the University of San Francisco in the summer of 2016, serving as the senior associate athletic director of external relations. In his current role, Allocco oversees all external operations of the department, including special events, communications, marketing and additional special projects in the department.

Allocco, who won 17 league championships and two Division I state championships during an 18-year stay at De La Salle High School in Concord, Calif., was named USF’s associate head coach in the summer of 2015, where he spent one season on the bench.

Allocco joined the USF coaching staff after spending the last 24 years in the high school ranks, where he amassed a record of 654-99 as head coach at Northgate (167-28) and De La Salle (487-71). He guided three teams to state championships and reached the 600-win plateau faster than any coach in state history. His career winning percentage of .868 ranks second all-time in the state and he is the only prep coach in California history to win a state title at two different schools.

In his 18 seasons at De La Salle, Allocco guided the Spartans to 17 East Bay Athletic League championships, three Northern California titles and state championships in 2000 and ’06. Over 60 players under his tutelage went on to play college basketball.

Among his many coaching accolades, Allocco was named Cal-Hi Sports State Coach of the Year in 2000, California Coaches’ Association State Coach of the Year in 2010 and State Coach of the Year in 2011.

In 2014, Allocco was the head coach of the West team in the prestigious McDonald’s All-American High School Game held at the United Center in Chicago, Ill., becoming just the second coach from Northern California picked as head coach for the star-studded game, which has showcases the top high school talent in the nation.

In addition to guiding the West team in the 2014 McDonald’s High School All-American Game, Allocco was the head coach in the Michael Jordan All-American Game which was played at Madison Square Garden; the head coach of the Academic All-American Game in Los Angeles; and head coach of the Nike Hoop Jamboree in St. Louis.

Prior to his appointment at De La Salle, Allocco served as head coach at Northgate High School in Walnut Creek for six seasons (1991-97), where he compiled a 167-28 record and guided the Broncos to a Division III state championship in 1995. In 10 seasons prior to his arrival, Northgate had just one winning season.

A nationally-renowned and well-respected teacher of the game, Allocco is a highly-sought after clinician and speaker for youths, coaches and players. He has coached at the highly-regarded Five Star Basketball Camps and was a lead clinician at the All-Asia Basketball Camp in Beijing, China. He has also been a featured speaker at the Belgium Basketball Federation Clinic and the Nike Clinic in Toronto. He was a clinician on the Nike Basketball Clinic circuit throughout the nation. In 1981, he founded the popular Excel in Basketball summer camp which serves as a teaching camp for basketball skills and provides a motivational base for thousands of youngsters in Northern California and New Jersey.

Level Up Sports Academy Bill Flitter Instructor

For the last 3 years, I’ve been an active member of the St. Perpetua CYO Board,  the Freshmen head basketball coach at De La Salle High School in Concord, CA. I was recently honored to coach with USA Basketball youth program during the 2016 Summer Olympics.

My coaching philosophy, “Get comfortable being uncomfortable.” Basketball is a correlation to life and unless you are doing things that push you, you won’t grow. I practice what I preach when I auditioned to be in a commercial with Steph Curry.  I was chosen for the role. It was a blast!

Level Coach Brad Hilsabeck

Brad grew up in the Midwest where he enjoyed playing football, basketball, and baseball.  Growing about five inches during his sophomore year, basketball became his focus and Brad was offered a scholarship to Westminster College in Missouri, where he was a four-year starter during one of the most successful periods in the college’s basketball history.  Brad is a member of the Westminster Athletics Hall of Fame.

Brad is an assistant men’s varsity basketball coach at Las Lomas High School in Walnut Creek and for the past ten years, he has coached CYO basketball teams for each of his three kids.  Brad’s philosophy of coaching basketball is very simple:  “teach kids to have a love for the game, play hard, and work together as a team.”  This philosophy has been a guiding principle for Brad, both on and off the basketball court, and he is passionate about working with kids to help them reach their full potential.

Coach Calvin Hudson - Level Up Coach

Coaching basketball is my passion. I began coaching 15 years ago at the youth level. Throughout the years I coached CYO, middle school teams, high school and AAU teams. I was certified by National Federation of State High School Associations and Positive Coaching Alliance.
