“From my experience, the Hoop Group Elite camp is the very best in the nation. The combination of instruction, competition, and exposure make it a must-do event for my players each summer.”

“The Hoop Group Elite Team Camp provides an extremely high level of competition. Having the opportunity to play against talented, well-coached teams in the summer has been instrumental in the development of our program at Davidson Day.”
