Hoop Group, the leading establishment for advanced basketball instruction, has recently announced nine new Top 100 clinic dates scheduled over the next couple of months. The clinics provide high school basketball players with the opportunity to compete against top players from other schools as well as gain visibility from college coaches. The Hoop Group Elite Top 100s teach players how to make themselves stand out from the crowd in preparation for the recruiting process, as well as improve performance during the regular school season.

With school starting back up and the season for summer camps coming to an end, the Top 100 basketball clinics give players the chance to continue improving their skills for the game while maximizing exposure to college coaches. “Every player in attendance gets the chance to play in two games in front of Division 2 and 3 coaches. Just because summer is over, does not mean you should stop being seen by coaches,” said Matt Pooley, the Director of Hoop Group Elite.

In order to continue progressing their skills, the players practice playing ball against other highly-competitive players from the area. The college-level instruction allows players to sharpen and fine tune the fundamentals of the game, while competing against other top performers allows the players to practice until they have mastered the new techniques.

During the day-long event, each player has the chance to receive a personal evaluation from the National Recruiting Report, which highlights a player's strengths and gives them an idea of where they can improve. In addition to competing against the best high school players in the region, participants rotate through instructional stations where they focus on form and technique to help improve their performance.

Hoop Group Elite’s Top 100 clinic moreover serves as a platform for players to establish themselves as a college-level player and position themselves for recruitment by building rapport with college coaches across the country. Attracting over 900 college coaches from Division I, II, and III schools in 2013 and gaining coverage by some of the top media outlets and recruiting services for the sport, the clinics offer players in high school the best chance at advancing to the next level.

The newly announced clinics are scheduled on select weekend dates from September 14th through October 17th. The events are set to take place in diverse locations along the east coast, including Philadelphia, Baltimore, New England, and Northern Virginia. Basketball players in grades 9 through 12 are welcome to attend one of the Fall 2014 Top 100’s by registering on Hoop Group’s website.
