The Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA), the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA), and the Alabama Association of Basketball Coaches are excited to announce its upcoming NCAA Certified Recruiting Team Camp in conjunction with the NFHS and NCAA.
The camp is scheduled for June 16-18 at the Finley Center in Hoover. Girls’ teams will play on June 16-17 and boys’ teams will play on June 17-18. Each registered team is guaranteed a minimum two (2) games. Deadline for registration was May 1.
AHSAA Assistant Director Devin Booth reports 101 boys’ high school varsity teams and 65 girls’ varsity teams have registered – including several schools that won AHSAA state championships in 2022. Among the defending state champions are: (Boys) Cullman (6A) and Plainview (3A); (Girls) Hoover (7A), Hazel Green (6A), Guntersville (5A), Prattville Christian (3A) and Pisgah (2A). Prattville Christian will be moving to Class 4A next season. All AHSAA member schools were eligible to participate in this NCAA event.
In conjunction with the team camp, the AABC will host a series of girls’ and boys’ all-star games during the event. AHSAA is also conducting an officials’ camp during the showcase with more than 200 contest officials expected to attend.
“We are very excited about the interest our schools are showing for this event,” said Booth. “This is a great learning opportunity for our coaches, teams, and officials. Plus, it will provide great exposure for our student-athletes.”
NCAA Division I men’s coaches can attend the event beginning Friday June 17, she said. Other Divisions can attend the entire event. The NCAA Division I women’s coaches are in a dead period. All other divisions as well as NAIA and junior college coaches, are eligible to attend.
