Pete Newell was the quintessential coach and especially post coach. I was fortunate to watch him teach at the Big Man's Camp and Pete Newell's Frontline Basketball Camps continue his tradition of excellence.

Pete Newell was the guru of big man's basketball for as long as I can remember. Every big man that wanted to learn post moves went through his camps. There are no better teachers of footwork and fundamentals, at any level, than the Pete Newell staff.

I have worked Pete Newell's camps since the late 1970's. He was very involved with the women and loved their passion and willingness to learn the post moves. I have worked many camps, but the emphasis on footwork is the best I have ever seen from Pete's staff. I would recommend Pete Newell's Frontline Basketball Camps to every player that wants to improve their offensive moves and understanding of the floor.
