Get It DunnHoops Summer camp 2022 registration is opening up this week. 7/25-7/29 at the Seekonk HS. From what I’ve been seeing the last several years, Get It Dunn Hoops is one of the few camps offering a 5 day youth sports camp. Most of the other ones are 4 days only, what happened to a “week” long camp lasting a whole week??? 🤔
Please help us spread the word, I tagged as many people as I could. Here’s what you need to know:
We will have our amazing coaches back from last summer plus a few surprise appearances by a couple of the very best NCAA Division 3 College Coaches in the nation, both Men’s and Women’s, so you won’t want to miss this one!
We also have some new opportunities for campers, there will be 2 HS age groups for half day programs ( 3 hours/day Mon-Fri)
1- high level, high intensity basketball training, combined with strength and agility trainings too. This is for HS players, AAU-type kids with solid experience and looking to take a big step forward with their game this summer.
2- Not as much experience yet but really want to put the work in to get better so they make their HS team- whether the goal is Freshman, JV or Varsity for the 2022-23 season. This is perfect for the girls and boys that have always played in their town and Rec, maybe some travel teams too but now they want to be committed to becoming a better player. There’s nothing stopping that player they just need to know what to work on and we will show them “how” to get better and even help them with a plan of attack for practicing on their own at home.
If anyone is interested in getting more information please call or text me at 401-413-4645 or email to [email protected]
Registration will be open by the weekend at www.GetItDunnHoops.com
Thank you! 🏀🔥❤️💪🏼💪🏾

Every Saturday at the gym during Seekonk Rec I’ve had dozens of people asking me when and how can I set up some basketball training for my son or daughter with Coach Ben? Ben Ben Duarte-Ramos Made Hoops (well it’s Ref Ben on Saturdays at our league 😂) or when are you guys going to be starting back up with your MADE Hoops trainings or Get It Dunn Hoops clinics?

Coming soon....
We’re starting up some brand new sessions for clinics/training workouts this week and next week. One of the groups we are most excited to start working with is the “Entry level” Clincs so looking for kids that want to have fun AND start to learn to play basketball! And yes in that order, Fun and learning...
We’re going to offer an evening session during the week, a Sunday morning group and then some really awesome weekday mini-camps at our M.A.D.E. Hoops 401 gym in Pawtucket. If you or anyone you know is interested in getting their children into basketball then we want to help! See these 5 amazing girls holding up their huge trophy and wearing shirts that says “finals champions”...they really Get It Dunn!!
I was fortunate enough to start coaching and working with them back when they were in 1st grade and have loved every minute of it! We do it by always having fun, focusing and working hard when it’s practice or game time but also by setting expectations and trying to hold them accountable and here we are 4th grade champions. Their development has been unbelievable and I’m so excited to see what the future holds for them!
We have the training programs in place, we have the experience working with all ages and skill levels and most of all we love and respect the Game of basketball so much that we want to pass it on to the next generation. Not only the skills but approaching the game the right way.
That’s what M.A.D.E. is, Making A Difference Everyday. Give us a shot and let us show you what we can do...I guarantee you will think it’s a slam dunk! Well no more dunking going on around here so I guess it’ll be a layup. 😂
Registration will be opening soon for the Intro to Basketball Clinics so please send me a message if you’re interested in reserving a space for your player. Email [email protected] or text 401-413-4645

Great first night at M.A.D.E. Hoops with a bunch of my players, Coach Ben Ramos, Kyle Ivey-Jones and Tekye. What an effort by all the players and they all said they had a great time too. Coach was in mid-season form already and had us doing some awesome drills. Plus all the kids had to get over 150 shots up each in our shooting stations then some 3 on 3 on a small full court.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Mom’s that Get It Dunn every day to make sure you’re players are ready for practices and game, no matter what time or location they’re at. Then right there in the front row cheering the team on every time. I had a basketball Mom, not just any one either I had a basketball super Mom. So no one understands how important that bond between a player and his or her Mom is. Even if we don’t always let you know how much we appreciate everything, all the rides, the sneakers and gear, the “counseling” after bad games, the praise and celebrating the good games, the snacks and waters, early morning and late night rides... I could keep going... so from Get It Dunn Hoops and all the players I’ve coached and played with over the years we want to say a huge thank you to all our Moms out there and have an extra special Mother’s Day!

4th grade girls team knows how to Get It Dunn on a Saturday!! I’m so proud of our team for playing through a very physical game with a lot of “no calls” against a team that was much bigger than us and wasn’t afraid of contact. So we’re up to 5-1 on the Spring season so far!! But way more important than our record is that we’re getting better and better every week. We had some great passes, ran some nice out of bounds plays and our help defense is improving all the time. So we’re all really excited for the progress and especially our effort.
Back at it tomorrow with 2 more games and looking forward to a great Sunday funday with my team!! I love being a and I ❤️ our team.
LFG Butler Basketball!!

21/04/2021

I hope everyone is having a great spring so far. We took a couple of weeks and slowed down with the weekend basketball clinics because of conflicts with other sports and events going on. But I keep getting contacted by parents that are looking for more basketball for their kids... so I can't say no to that and I am going to Get It Dunn. We will be rolling out some various ages and times for clinics and starting with the youngest groups first and more to follow... these are the ages I'm getting the most requests from so please see attached for a 6 week Kindergarten-2nd grade Sunday session starting up in N. Smithfield at the Wide World of Indoor Sports from 10-11:00 on Sunday mornings. Please share this with anyone you know with younger kids, experience is not necessary. We are going to have a group that is brand new to Basketball and have some really great Coaches who are amazing with the little tikes and teaching the basics.
If you have any questions or want to register your player please email me at [email protected] or text/call me at 401-413-4645, depending on responses we are looking to start ASAP, May 1st ideally but if we have enough interest and availability for this Sunday we will try to have a separate session for this weekend too.

09/04/2021

Attention everyone out there looking for their players to Get It Dunn during April school vacation week. Here is the perfect opportunity to work on your individual skills and your approach to the game of basketball. Life of Hoops is going to give your kids the perfect combination of both.
If you’re interested in more information please reach out to me at [email protected] or 401-413-4645.
And stay tuned for more opportunites to Get It Dunn in collaboration with Dawan Robinson and Life of Hoops!! I’ve been committed to working with the very best Player Development Coaches and former players around and I’m going to keep trying to open doors to give our players access to next level training. From men and women who love and respect the game of basketball but also know what it takes to succeed at the highest levels.
Have a great day and if you’re serious about basketball then this is when you separate yourself from the crowd.

This is exactly who you want to be for your team...Jordan Nixon from Texas A&M. Ultimate leader and baller!! Hit the tying shot in the 4th quarter and game winning coast to coast buzzer be**er in OT to get to the Sweet 16. And talk about celebrating like she’s been there before, what a class act. Then she was the most humble player you could ever be in her post game interview. 100% “team team team” and how they trust her to be their leader and make plays for them to win, she just scored 35 points on National Tv tonight and I bet she would be just as happy if she scored 5 points AND still led her team to victory.
If you haven’t watched any of the Women’s NCAA tourney this year then you’re missing out on some incredibly talented players and great games.

21/03/2021

Here’s how you make yourself better on a sunny Sunday in March! It might not be “March Madness” but we’re giving these guys know how to Get It Dunn!! Working hard and getting to learn from the best!!

Great day at Get It Dunn Hoops camp! These kids got to work with an amazing group of coaches today. Ava Dunn getting to hang with the big boys (and in some cases old boys 😂
3 hours of hard work for each group! We worked at man to man defense, tons of pick n roll and pick and pop and some great ball handling drills among others.
Huge thank you to Mike Babul, Abdul Abdullah Ryan Cain, JC Santos and Jess Bien for all your efforts coaching today! These kids have no idea how lucky they are to get to learn from all these unbelievable former basketball players and now coaches! Sorry JC, current players too 😂
We’re so fired up for Day 2 tomorrow!! I hope these kids are ready to Get It Dunn again!!

Happy Wednesday...today is a great day to make yourself a better player. This FB memory was shared and I love seeing this picture of hands down the greatest team I was ever fortunate enough to be part of. Practices for this squad were intense (and also where I got my only playing time, 😂) RIP to our Head Coach, my basketball “Godfather” Floyd Narcisse for making basketball dreams like this and so many more come true. The bonds that were made back then are still strong today.
8 legit D1 stud ballers in this picture, multiple Big East players and an ACC one that also played 10 years in The League! I mean we even had a Juco and D3 player that scored over 2,000 career points. Getting to play with and against players of this caliber and the rest of our teams at John Hope Settlement House showed me the different level of basketball that was out there and made me into the player I was. Iron sharpens iron and I was so lucky to get thrown into the fire with some of the best around. So get out of your comfort zone, take advantage of every opportunity you have to make yourself better and never be satisfied with your progress. If you want to get better do something about it and Get It Dunn.

Well none of us on the team liked the way the season ended but the journey was awesome. In a Covid challenged year where all our travel teams got 1 hour of half court practice, every OTHER week these little athletes stuck together, played with all their effort and heart, went 7-1 for the season and already can’t wait to get back to practice and working so next year ends differently!!
I want to thank every one of our players and all the parents for bringing this special group together. And I can’t wait to get back to practicing with all of them! We’re going to have a busy spring and summer of hoops too! Wait til you see how this team Gets It Dunn!!! 🏀❤️🔥💪🏻💪🏾💪🏼🔥❤️🏀
Parents please add in some more photos of the team or action shots!

The last Saturday of Get It Dunn Hoops 3 on 3 games...for now. But awesome day, great effort from all these little athletes! From grades 1/2 up to Sophomores in HS.
Big Happy Birthday to Coach Kevin too!!
And we had a special guest coaching appearance from local baller (and recent Little East Champion at UMASS Dartmouth) JC Santos...if you have a player looking to get better he is amazing with small group and private workouts too.
Thank you to all of the kids that came out to Get It Dunn today! We love all of you guys and gals and we’re going to keep working on ideas to help them all continue to grow and develop as players.

If I’m going to be in N. Attleboro then I’m going to breakfast with a Legend from Big Red Basketball. And one of the best local players to ever lace them up.
Talk about Getting It Dunn! Mike Babul was not only a great high school and college player but now is a phenomenal Coach and Player Development Trainer!
That’s why Get It Dunn Hoops is so excited to announce our collaboration this month. We’re finalizing plans for an unbelievable weekend basketball camp on 3/20-3/21 and will have registration available opening up by the weekend. We are going to focus on pushing and training the players to make sure they’re ready for spring AAU or to kick start their offseason workout so they’re ready to come back and wow their High School coach next season.
We’re looking at 2 groups for the camps, each session will be 3 hours on Saturday and 3 hours on Sunday. The older group, 7th-12th grade and a younger group 4th-6th grade with select 3rd graders too.
We’re also going to have a 3 week clinic for K-3rd grade that will be 1 hour on either Saturday or Sunday for the last 3 weekends in March.
Please text me at 401-413-4645 or email me [email protected] to reserve a spot before registration opens.

The calendar turned to March so visions of AAU tournaments, off season workouts and March Madness dance in our heads.
The registration information will be out by the end of this week but I have an unbelievable collaboration coming up on 3/20-3/21 for a high level basketball skills and conditioning 2-day camp. This program will have some of the best local former players and now college coaches and player development coaches. Our goal for this is to make sure your player is 100% prepared to make a splash in their AAU season. We will have a group for middle school and HS ages then a separate camp for 3/4/5/6 grades.
Training will include but not limited to:
- offensive and defensive skills and situations, perimeter and post
- agility/footwork and conditioning training both days from a Strength and Conditioning Coach
- ball handling and passing with one of the best to ever play the point guard position
- break out session for middle and high school athletes with a former Division 1 Assistant Coach and player to talk about the commitment it takes to get to that level and what to focus on IF their goal is to play in college.

We always have fun when we’re on the hardwood or the blacktop but to be clear this will be all business. And the business is making every player that wants to work hard get better! This is when you do that...the off-season! But you have to be ready and embrace the work and the grind.

I’ve heard from several people already that they are interested so please send me a message if you also want to let me know you’re interested or get a little more info before the full details are out on Thursday or Friday text me at 401-413-4645.

Also, if anyone is interested in more info about clinics in March please reach out to me. We have all levels of training coming up to make sure the kids playing AAU are ready to succeed. The weekend of March 20-21st we are going hold a Premier Skills development 2 day camp and will feature some of the best Coaches and player development guys around. This will be for middle school and high school players and there will be some familiar faces there coaching with me but also a few new ones that have been coaching in college for over 10 years each and we’re also phenomenal players ranging from standouts at UMASS Amherst through All-Americans at elite New England Division 3 University’s. I’ll have more information soon but please let me know if you want more info so I can gauge interest level. So far feedback has been very positive.

I was already having a good day yesterday then I got to see my favorite player’s painting that she made for her bedroom door and it was a great day! My little #21 Ava Dunn!! The green is for our Celtics with two 21’s, one for each of us!
I love this kid so much and can’t wait to keep having fun and working hard together at the game I’ve always loved too.
Also, thank you to all the players and parents that have embraced our leagues and clinics. The feedback has been overwhelming and I appreciate all the kind words. Everything I try to do and teach the kids I get to work with has 1 goal in mind...to help every one of them get better, to realize their potential and learn to play the right way. But also get to do that in a fun and positive environment. And we’re going to keep on working on ways to develop them more and more so stay tuned for what’s next in store in the coming weeks and months.

Another great day in the books! These little athletes are very fortunate. Today they got to work with Coach Trent again then also Coach Abdul Abdullah and Coach JC Santos. All 4 of us loved the effort and mentality towards the drills. There’s no secret to getting better and they are all showing us that they want to be great players.
Tomorrow is the last day and we have some more great things in store for the kids and looking forward to awarding the Get It Dunn Hoops Hustle and focus awards!

Day one of the Get It Dunn Hoops Feb Vacation Clinic went great today! 3 hours for these kids and man did they get after it! They worked so hard the entire time, stayed focused and all the coaches loved the effort. This is the kind of work that makes you better so be ready for day 2 tomorrow! 10:00-1:00 with Coach Trent Forbes and Coach Abdul Abdullah too.
We have some great drills and basketball planned for them! We want the players that are going to out work everyone and put in the extra effort to be a great player and teammate.
We do have a few slots open if anyone knows a player that is interested, we’ll come up with a 2 day registration fee so if interested message me here or reach me at 401-413-4645. There is tomorrow and Thursday from 10-1:00 left.

The DRS hockey program came out this week and I want to wish them good luck the rest of the season. Keep working as hard as you can, both in practice and games.
I’m so happy that my first Get It Dunn Hoops sponsorship helped do a small part to support these guys, as much as it blows my mind to have Seekonk and DR kids playing on the same team 😂, but it’s definitely working so keep up the great teamwork!
And Get It Dunn Hoops has 2 special shout outs too. First, to favorite DRS player Ethan Goudreau, keep grinding, injuries suck but they can also make you a better player, mentally tougher and willing to put in that extra effort! Play every play like it’s your last one.
And of course the 2nd shout out goes to the best teammate and hands down biggest fan of DRS hockey, Jason Lesage, enjoy the rest of your season too!! This is by far my favorite news report of the year!
Let’s go DRS Hockey Warri...ok I won’t do it. Let’s go DRS Hockey!!

We’re not going to let a little snow slow us down! We had another great day on Sunday with Get It Dunn Hoops 3 on 3 games and now we have some exciting news.
While we are gearing up for another busy weekend with some great matchups on both days, right now, we’re calling on all our 1st and 2nd graders looking to learn and play some hoops! Because of the 1st-2nd grade 3 on 3 league on Sunday we were able to open up room in our Saturday morning clinic for that age group. We focus on all introductory basketball skills and drills while starting to teach them the basics AND make it fun. We even get into the terminology of basketball and the gym too.
If you know any youngsters that are all cooped up in the house please reach out to me through FB or [email protected]
We have a 6 week session (co-ed), each session is an hour long on Saturdays at the Wide World of Indoor Sports in N. Smithfield. Starting this Saturday 1/30 at 9:00 for $110/player.
All Covid protocols are followed strictly. Masks must be worn by the players and coaches at all times.
