Academic Basketball Camps are the place to be seen by college coaches…
“With all the college coaches and scouts in attendance at camp this past summer, the Academic Camp is the best place to be seen by elite academic schools. The visibility for the players is amazing and the level of play is top-notch!”
Adam Finkelstein, Managing Partner, New England Recruiting Report
What the College Coaches are saying…
“The Academic Camp has become a must attend recruiting event for us and all highly-selective colleges and universities in the country.”
NESCAC Head Coach
“Please do whatever you have to do to keep this going. We coaches need an event like this to find the players we want to recruit. You really have something here. Thank you.”
Liberty League Head Coach
“The Academic Camp is a must attend event for any coach at a top academic school…any player who wants to be evaluated by the top academic schools needs to be at this event!”
UAA Head Coach
“Your camp was amazing. Every player was at the level we need them to be. They are all recruits for me. Nowhere else I have been can I say that; this was the best time I could have spent.”
UAA Assistant Coach
We would like to make a statement on the matter of rules, compliance and the actions of others that have caused many to take issue with AAU basketball in the macro, which is why we are eschewing identification with aau and referring to the genre as Grassroots, and with a team or coach in the micro: Not only do we know the rules (both the letter and spirit) we wholeheartedly pledge/endeavor/mandate ourselves to follow them without fail every day that ends in a “y.” We maintain a higher standard for ourselves than others expect of us. In all matters, we live by the Golden Rule in addition to Rules #1 and 2.
