What is Hoop Group? Why attend?

In an effort to get our players the most exposure to college coaches, NBBA players on our 17U teams are encouraged to attend the Hoop Group Elite Camp in Albright, PA the week of July 10 - 13. In the summer of 2015 our sister academy, Erik Spoelstra Basketball Academy, brought nine players to the camp. Each player walked away from the camp with numerous schools pursuing them for the recruiting class of 2016. Over the past two summers NBBA has brought 30+ players to the camp. Our players have had tremendous success and have played in front of hundreds of coaches during the camp. Numerous players have been recognized at camp as All-Stars, Station Stars, and participated in championship games.

Hoop Group Elite Summer Basketball Camp's main focus is putting players on the national map and getting them discovered by college basketball coaches. 80% of Hoop Group Elite campers go on to play in college. With over 900 college coaches and 40 scouting services attending camp in 2017, their Elite Camps draw the widest range of coaches and scouts in the business to watch you perform. At the camp, the coaches and referees are made up of full time Hoop Group Employees, as well as Division II and III assistant coaches and Division I support staff. In 2017, Hoop Group helped 450+ athletes earn scholarships and they are responsible for aiding 2000+ players currently playing at the collegiate level.
