National Top 100 H.S. Basketball Combine–July 26-27, Chattanooga, TN

This camp is hosted by Tennessee Temple University

Description: The National High School Basketball Combine is a camp that is for serious athletes looking to become a complete basketball player with speed and agility. Players will be put through skill development and coaches will draft players like an actual NBA/WNBA draft.  Players will go into the Lee Roberson Center to see their names placed on the projection screen in front of their peers.  This combine will provide players on how it feels to be drafted by a team.

This camp is composed of players being tested on speed, agility, and vertical jump. Players will have their weight and height measured.  Players will be timed on lateral movement, quickness, and reaction time.  Campers will be treated as professional athletes; they will have their times written down on their evaluation sheet.

  1. Participants will undergo a series of physical drills, measurements, and interviews
  2. Coaches will draft players on their team
  3. Players will play 5 on 5 pick-up games
  4. An MVP of the Combine will be crowned
