A friend told me, and it appears true via the Web today, that men’s hoops isn’t running any summer camps (there is no reference in the Camps pull down menu and nothing to register for on the page unlike all other sports http://abcsportscamps.com/scubasketball/).
Speculating that men’s hoops doesn’t need the revenue to subsidize assistance coaches like it needed to in the past, the time takes away from recruiting, and that there (sadly) is little local talent to uncover at camps. Most of the talent is playing on club teams at sponsored events.
Is this a good thing? Seems that an avenue for bridge building with local coaches and potential students is gone. Or do we need that bridge or more applicants? As is an opportunity to keep and employ players over the summer.
Or would we rather have coaches out finding our next great big man?
