SPORTS ANALYTICS CAMP DESCRIPTION:

Ages 11 to 14 – Space is Limited, Register Now!

Brand new camp for Summer 2018!

Which player should be drafted in the first round? How much does home-field advantage really matter? Is it worth going for a touchdown on fourth and goal?  Why are so many teams increasing the amount of 3 pointers they shoot in a game, and does being at the top of the Steals category actually mean you are one of the best defenders? In sports, there was a time when coaching, management, and decision-making came down to instinct and tradition. Over the last 20 years, statistical analysis and numbers-based reasoning has taken over.  This is YOUR chance to learn skills in sports analytics and become a truly knowledgeable sports fan!

At Sports Analytics Camp you will learn how to make these kinds of decisions and what it’s like to organize a team and evaluate players. In addition, you will learn how to use the power of computer programming to code a Java™ program that assigns a Player Efficiency Rating using a model that you create yourself.  And yes, you can decide how to weight each statistical category based on your research and use of sports analytics! At least one week of prior experience in Java™ or Python™ is recommended.

In addition to learning how to analyze stats and make theories and assertions, campers will participate in an All Camp Fantasy Baseball League and put their skills to work!

3 Major Projects:

Analytics For Your Favorite Sports Team: Pick your favorite sports team or player and analyze how they can improve. Which statistics matter and which just look good? In which areas can your team get better? It’s up to you to analyze and decide… what statistical insights would you give to your favorite sports team that perhaps they are not even trying?

All Camp Fantasy Baseball League: Build your fantasy baseball team, see how your predictions pan out, and adjust your model for the next game! What stat matters to you and how will you make your team?

Code a Powerful PER Program For Maximum Efficiency Using Java™: Use Java™ to write an application that will calculate your very own player efficiency rating based on the stats that you choose! You control everything from which statistics matter, to how heavily they are weighted. Try it out for your fantasy team! At the end of the week, you even get to take it home!

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Explore An Expanding Industry:  Sports analytics has exploded over the last few decades and there are tons of unexplored opportunities!  Get a head start in this industry… and maybe make it a career?

Make An Impact: Design your very own player efficiency model using Java™. Models are constantly expanding and improving. Can you be more accurate than the current experts?  YOU will take your Java™ project home at the end of the week.

Have Fun With Other Sports Enthusiasts: Love sports? So do we! Have fun with other campers who love sports as much as you do.

Be YOUR Own GM: Build the best team you can and have even more fun watching games at home and rooting for your players!

Take Home Your PER Model:  Playing fantasy football this fall? You can design a PER Java™ program for use in your Fall Fantasy League!

Please note: Campers will compete in at least one fantasy baseball competition and will take home a Java™ application that will evaluate players.

All Campers receive a Lavner Camps t-shirt and leave with their very own Java™ player efficiency model!
