A program of the training camp is known – you can check it out here. And Bulut explains every segment of the camp and tells why these elements are important in 3×3 and how can they help you to be a better streetball player, giving you all the right reasons to join the camp if one day you want to be 3×3 professional.
First day: SHOOTING
“The most important element in basketball and streetball. That is how you score a point. In streetball, shooting must be on a much bigger level than in any other sport. Because of intensity and dynamics of the sport, this segment of playing brings incredible advantage if perfected. In 3×3 you don’t have time to think a lot or to schematize your moves on the court, so shooting must be so well practiced that it has to be automatic – practically. Shooting has to be equal from every part of the court.”
Second day: DRIBBLING
“The segment of a game that is used a lot. Most of the time you end up in a 1 on 1 situation and good dribbling is a powerful weapon to outplay the opponent. Also, it is good if you want to carry the ball out of the arc under the pressure and for improving angles for shooting. Dribbling is an integral part of the game and in streetball, there is no place for imperfections in any sector. I use dribbling (besides passing) to express my creativity and lucidity. For me, it’s the most elegant part of the game. While I was growing up I was never the fastest, or the strongest or the most explosive player out there, but I used dribbling to put my opponents out of balance and that’s how I got my way to the basket to score a point.“
Third day: PASSING
“The key element of every game. Passing the ball right on time is of vital importance for every team. It is the most diverse element of streetball which brings incredible advantage and improves chemistry in the team. Scoring a point makes one player happy, good assistance makes two players happy.“

Fourth day: PIVOTING
“This element of the game is forgotten, but all top players brought this element to perfection. It is especially important in 3×3 where the game is a bit rough, it can help you improve your position on the court or angle for shooting. Thanks to pivoting you can better use 3 previous elements – shooting, dribbling, passing.“
Fifth day: REPETITION
“Practice makes perfect. With practice not only that you are progressing, but also you build your persistence, character, and self-confidence of player. These mental elements are equally important as physical elements of the game.”
Sixth and seventh day: PLAYING
“Playing is applying your knowledge on the court and that is the most important thing. Also, at the end of the day, everyone must know that all this is just a game, and everyone must remember the real reason why they are here – the love for the game.”
This is a theory, the practical part of this you can learn at Bulut Hoops camp – SIGN UP NOW! Come and learn from the best!
