Round one of the adidas Nations US tour tipped off April 12, as 19 underclassmen competed at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando Florida. The camp was the initial introduction to Nations for players n the class of 2012 and 2013.
Highlighted by several front court players, the campers participated in 3 training sessions and scrimmages focusing on fundamentals, and competitive principals. Some performances of note were turned in by 6â€™9â€ Wannah Bail of Sugarland, TX, Hanner Perea of Indiana (via Columbia) , Shabazz Muhammad of Las Vegas, NV, Stokes of Memphis, TV and Savon Goodman from Philadelphia, PA. Some of those in attendance will represent the adidas Nations USA 2012 in the Nations Championships August 6-9 in Chicago, IL.
Next up for the Nations tour is Las Vegas May 21-23. Camp #2 will feature returning players from last year, now representing the class of 2011 along with the new group of 2012â€™s. This camp will surely become a highly competitive affair throughout the three training sessions.
