I have worked Pete Newell’s camps since the late 1970’s. I have come to know Bill McClintock over the past 15 years as director of the Pete Newell Tall Women's Basketball Camps. 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 Bill’s staff. I would recommend Bill McClintock’s Frontline Basketball Camps to every player that wants to improve their offensive game and understanding of the floor.

Coach Bill McClintock has been the steward and disciple of Coach Pete Newell's Basketball Camps for many years. His basketball methods on teaching Post Moves and Footwork modules are mirror images and instructions from his former college coach and mentor, Pete Newell. Any young aspirant that seeks to improve their knowledge of the game, develop the necessary skills-set facing the basket and back to the basket, need look no further than beyond Coach Bill.
