High School “High Potential/Blue-Chip Showcase Camp” (Boys)
Exposure is the key for any player in this day-and-age to receive a college basketball scholarship. With cutbacks in staff and budget by colleges nationwide, and fewer days to evaluate players, college coaches overlook more and more deserving players every year.
With this being the case, I hope you will consider attending the Rick Bolus High Potential “Blue-Chip” Basketball Showcase Camp for the summer of 2020, at MidAmerica East Sports Center, an all air-conditioned facility, in easy-to-reach Louisville, KY, off I-265 between the junctions of I-71 and I-64.
I am entering my 47th year as a basketball scout and my 41st year as a camp director. Over the years, I have observed over 30,000 players attend my camp. Among those attendees have included current or former NBA players such as Keita Bates-Diop, Rex Chapman, Norris Cole, Darren Hancock, Allen Houston, Jimmy Jackson, Dan Langhi, Brad Miller, Scott Padgett, Felton Spencer, Allonzo Trier and DeJuan Wheat, and as well as former NCAA Division I players like Glendon Alexander, Jeff Brooks, Richie Farmer, Travis Ford, Pat Graham, Jack Ingram, A.J. Moye, Drew Neitzel, Larry O'Bannon, Jared Odle, John Pelphrey, Ty Rogers, Scott Sutton, Sean Sutton, and Albert White. Some attendees have gone on to excel in other sports such as the1999 NFL Draft Number 1 Pick, Tim Couch, and former Major League Baseball pitcher, Derek Lowe.
Many college games on television have a past camper performing. For example, from 2010 to 2014, at least one former camper played on an NCAA Final 4 Team. Three out of four teams in the 2005 NCAA Final 4 had a former camper playing for them, and three former campers were members of the University of Louisville's 2013 National Championship team. Also, several campers throughout the years have been listed in the Sporting News Basketball Yearbook for the Boy's High School All-American Teams.
Our camp could well be the avenue for one to obtain a scholarship. This summer I will be offering the following sessions for campers to attend. On June 30, a one-day camp for middle school players entering grades 6 through 8 for the 2020-21 season. Then on July 1, a one-day camp will be conducted for high school players entering grades 9 through 12. Both events will include three games, team practice, stations, contests, and a guest speaker. The price for either camp is $130 which includes tuition, lunch and a T-shirt.
Numerous college coaches nationwide representing all levels of play will be invited to attend both camp formats. Last summer college coaches, bloggers and scouting services observed or inquired about the High Potential “Blue-Chip” Basketball Showcase Camp.
Camp Internet coverage will be provided on my web page, www.basketball-camp.net, as well as on my Facebook and Twitter accounts. Also, there will be further internet coverage by veteran blogger Ron Harrison on his web page, www.kyprephoops.com, which has over 7,500,000 hits. A camp report will be available by the middle of July to over 2,000 colleges across the country on my webpage as well. Also, a camp report will be sent to numerous college coaches nationwide representing all levels of collegiate play. Why pay higher prices which most camps charge when one can pay less to attend the Rick Bolus High Potential “Blue-Chip” Basketball Showcase Camp and get more exposure and bang for one’s bucks!
There is a spot for you at “Blue-Chip” regardless of your playing ability. Your college scholarship offers could be broadened by attending. Should you be flying under the radar screens of college coaches, a good showing at “Blue-Chip” will get your name on the road maps of recruiters. Finally, if you just want to improve your game for the 2020-21 season, “Blue-Chip” is just the place for you.
