“I am asked constantly by parents and players how to get noticed and recruited.  As a college coach with over a decade of recruiting experience, I want to share little known facts to maximize each player’s recruiting potential.  This isn’t about gimmicks, this is about educating each player of how the actual recruiting process works, and the optimal way to take advantage of it. This is also a developmental camp, where we teach players everything that will be important to them regarding skill-work, weight training, nutrition, etc.  I honestly believe that if kids and parents take all of this info and utilize it, it'll be one of the most valuable days of their basketball career.”Chad Dickman, Head Men’s Basketball Coach, Hood College
