Goals and Objectives Team Showcase The Team Showcase is very popular year in and year out. With the area’s top high school and AAU teams participating , the 2009 edition of the Team Showcase was a major success. The focus will be on games, tournaments, and late game situations. All games have certified officials and score keepers. There is a five game guarantee and court times available for practice as well. There will also be a segment consisting of individual station work. This addition implemented last year was a huge success. Admission will be charged to any parent or fan who wishes to watch any and/or all games. Unique to Team Showcase is the late game situation tournament. Teams are put it late game situations where they are up or down one point with under thirty seconds to go and play a best of five series. The unique tournament is always the highlight of camp!!

“Once again, American put on a great team camp. The games were very competitive and the overall structure of camp was well organized. The demonstration segment was a great addition because it allowed not only the players to learn fundamentals, but also allowed us coaches to learn various drills in order to implement them in to our practices. We are looking forward to attending camp in the summer of 2010.”
