Basketball Camp THINKTANK: Phase Seven

For the first six phases of the Basketball Camp THINKTANK head HERE!

Today’s phase is the actual outline of the event.  After a failure to plan is a plan to fail.

On a side note we have three volunteer slots left the 8-12 and two in the 12-4 shifts on July 7th!

If interested in either email me at!

Why make an outline for your event?

There are so many moving parts when you are putting an event together and different things that are going to pop up that day (or multiple days) that having a strategic outline and plan for the day will make things just a tad calmer.

How detailed does this need to be for you?

It really depends on how much of the event depends on exact times and how much is “free time” that can be shifted as the event goes on.

Here’s an example of what our outline looks like from 7am to 330pm for our basketball camp.

I hope this THINKTANK phase was beneficial to you and helped remind you of another very important step in creating an event.  And remember an outline is just an outline!

Things are going to change…the ability to just go with the flow will support you I promise the day of.
