When asked about the overall Impact BasketballCamp program for 2008, Joe Abunassar recently stated, "Unlike traditional basketball camps, where the focus is on playing games, Impact Basketball Camps could be best thought of as "thee Basketball Training Camps" simply because of the individualized, educational, holistic, and very thorough approach we have to preparing each player to rise to their next level. The emphasis is on the individual skill development through intense drill work in small groups, along with optimizing the performance of the body through the execution of advanced strength, movement, and endurance programs. Daily training also includes educating each player on the proper dietary and nutritional needs necessary to consistently play at a higher level day in and day out."

For the 2008 Impact Basketball Camp season, campers will have the opportunity to practice near, train alongside, and interact with top NBA players who are essentially executing the same training program as the younger campers right in the same facility. This includes the opportunity to be taught by the world's top coaches and trainers who are also responsible for developing the world's top NBA players. Campers will also have the opportunity to meet and train with peers who have the same drive, passion, and desire to get better, in order to maximize their game.

While training, to keep groups small and to coach more effectively, camper ratios are kept at a desirable level, weekly enrollment numbers are kept to an average of between 8 to 15 campers per week, therefore campers must sign-up while spaces are still available. Impact Basketball recommends that campers enroll in at least 2 consecutive weeks of training in order to maximize their time spent training and overall results.
