Under Armour’s all-star guard Stephen Curry will host 20 of the top high school guards in the world (10 point guards and 10 shooting guards) for an intense four-day camp in the Bay Area beginning tomorrow. More info on the invitation-only elite camp and its participants from UA:
Stephen Curry and Under Armour Basketball’s inaugural SC30 Select Camp will take place from June 29 – July 2 in California’s Bay Area. The camp will feature 20 high school point guards and shooting guards. Focusing on an immersive and hands-on approach, Curry, renowned basketball trainer Rob McClanaghan and Under Armour Basketball designed the four-day curriculum to teach the players the fundamentals that enable guards to excel at the highest level, the importance of off-the-court growth and insights from Curry on his personal journey from high school unknown to NBA All-Star starter and 2nd Team All NBA recognition.
The camp staff includes the Charlotte Hornets all time leading scorer Dell Curry, scouting expert and ESPN college basketball analyst Fran Fraschilla, a number of the country’s most successful high school basketball coaches and trainers who helped Stephen during his career.
“The SC30 Select Camp is a once-in-a-lifetime experience where campers will come to work and immerse themselves in the game, learn how to navigate off-court challenges and become positive role models in their communities,” said Curry. “I grew up blessed with a father who had a great basketball mind and 16 years of NBA experience, so to give back some of that knowledge to high school athletes as they prepare for the next level is important. This camp will represent an opportunity for each person to get better and to develop that never take the game for granted mentality.”
Players will learn fundamentals essential to guard play through film sessions and correlating on- court drills. The agenda also includes personal growth lectures and a community event at a local court refurbished by Stephen and Under Armour Basketball.
The players represent the classes of 2015 – 2017 and include two players from outside of the United States.
