THE BALL IS IN YOUR COURT!
HEADLINER TRYOUT CAMPS, PRESENTED BY DICK’S SPORTING GOODS, ARE BACK TO PROVIDE MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SELECTION TO REEBOK ALL-AMERICAN CAMP AND REEBOK BREAKOUT UNDERCLASS CAMP
Canton, MA (April 24, 2008) – This month marks the start of the 2008 Reebok Basketball Headliner Try Out Camps, which will be presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods for the first time, and operated by Driven Athletics for the second year in a row.
Reebok Headliner Try Out Camps are the most unique camp property in the country because they are the only camps where invitations can be earned to Reebok’s exclusive All-American and Breakout Underclass camps held later this summer.
No longer do players have to forge barriers for entry to invitation-only camps, as registration for these headliner try out camps is open to any high school basketball player in the country, regardless of ability.
In 2007, nearly 1000 players participated in 16 regional Reebok Headliner Try Out Camps across the country. Incredibly, 64 of those players earned invitations to the Reebok All- American Camp- that is over half of the total camp spots! Additionally, 84 invitations were extended to the Reebok Breakout Underclass Camp, one of the premier instructional and development camps in the country.

“For many years, access to national camps was often based off of who you knew or what travel program you played for. The Reebok Headliner Try Out Camps have changed all that and now gives players an equal opportunity to earn their way into events that give them outstanding exposure,” said Christopher Rivers, Reebok Director of Basketball. “Finally, the undiscovered have a chance to be discovered.”
