USA Basketball will conduct its first girls USA Basketball Gold Camp, which will be for seventh and eighth grade athletes, on June 23-24 at Holy Innocents’ Episcipal School in Atlanta.

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 had a great response from our inaugural boys Gold Camp last month, and now our girls Gold Camp in Atlanta will provide a unique opportunity for girls to advance their game through USA Basketball,” said Jay Demings, USA Basketball Youth & Sport Development director.

USA Basketball Gold Camps will emphasize basketball fundamentals and progressive development through station work, group drills and competition, and participants are coached by USA Basketball licensed coaches.

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.
