    May 7, 2019

USA Basketball will conduct its inaugural USA Basketball Gold Camp, which will be for seventh and eighth grade boys, on May 18-19 at Collegiate School in Richmond, Virginia.

Gold Camps specifically are designed for seventh and eighth grade athletes that demonstrate skills in line with the advanced or performance level of the USA Basketball Player Development Model. USA Basketball representatives will attend camps to evaluate the development level of all participants.

“We’re excited to expand our Youth & Sport Development programming to more young people,” said Jay Demings, USA Basketball Youth & Sport Development director. “Gold Camps are specifically designed for middle-schoolers with advanced skills who would like to compete with and against players with similar skills. We think it’s a great opportunity for talented young players across the country to enhance their development and to experience USA Basketball.”

USA Basketball Gold Camps will emphasize basketball fundamentals and progressive development through station work, group drills and competition.

Athletes interested in registering for a USA Basketball Gold Camp must submit an application for approval. To be eligible for USA Basketball Gold Camps, athletes must be in the seventh or eighth grade and cannot turn 16 years old prior to Sept. 1, 2019. More information on eligibility and the application process is available online.

Participants are responsible for transportation to and from the gym, lodging and basketball shoes, and each participating athlete will be provided with a jersey and shorts.

All USA Basketball camps utilize the USA Basketball Player Development Model which consists of four levels of development: Introductory, Foundational, Advanced and Performance.
