Now that the summer vacation for area students is approaching its second month, most are looking for ways to keep themselves entertained, active and fit. The summer is loaded with all sorts of camps, but the staff at Rapid Player Improvement (RPI) Sports Camp has been working with future basketball stars looking to work on their skills. Brian Rowan, Tim Dunne and their staff have just completed their second free one-day sessions at the Coliseum in Voorhees, New Jersey. RPI will be continuing building on your basketball skills with four weeks of intense basketball camps.

Long-time South Jersey residents Brian Rowan and Tim Dunne started the Rapid Player Improvement Corporation. Rowan is the assist coach for the boy's basketball team at Triton High School and a former All South Jersey player. Dunne is the Head Coach for the boy's basketball team at Pennsauken High School. Both have been involved with local athletes at almost every level of competition. They are offering training with not only just basketball, but also other sports such as tennis and soccer. RPI has partnered with the Home Site of RPI Basketball, The Coliseum Fitness Center that offers a state-of-the-art facility to work out of throughout the summer.

Today's RPI basketball clinic was for the girl's looking to make a difference on their basketball team. Majority of them were looking to receive instructions from their experienced staff on dribbling, shooting and that all-important area of conditioning your body for the game of basketball. Graig White, Director of Performance Enhancement for Rapid Player Improvement Sports, is one of the instructors giving each athlete a positive outlook on how to be physically fit to play.

"We like to work with smaller groups so we can give individual attention to each athlete", mention Rowan as the RPI camp was just finishing their second free camp. "We will be having more free clinics later, but our four day camps begin the second week of July". RPI can instructions for any size groups with the experience staffing they provide at each session. More information can be found on their website at or visit The Coliseum in Voorhees, New Jersey.
