National PreSeason Showcase

National Preseason Showcase – August 23

Description: One of the best camps Ricky Taylor Basketball offers for high school and mature middle school players, the National Preseason Showcase. The National Preseason Showcase is for players who believe that they deserve to make the Ricky Taylor Basketball’s Top 20 All-Star team.  This camp is for basketball players who have aspirations to go to college and ultimately becoming a professional basketball player.  The National Preseason Showcase will focus on skill development and 5 on 5 pick up basketball while coaching staff evaluates all players.  There will be a top 20 all-star game for the boys and girls at the end of camp.

This National Preseason Showcase is to discover hidden talent early in the year so that players can get recruited.  There are a lot of basketball players who are overlooked, and this is a grand opportunity for players to get noticed at this National Preseason Showcase.

The National Preseason Showcase will begin with dynamic and static stretching and will start off with fundamental drill work which will progress into ADVANCED AND PROFESSIONAL skill work taught by skill development coach and professional basketball player, Coach Ricky Taylor. This camp will focus directly on campers who are ultimately seriously about playing college and or professional basketball.
