3rd Annual WCE NW High Academic All-Star Camp Review

Last weekend was the 3rd Annual WCE NW High Academic All-Star Camp which included 120 of the NW’s best student-athletes.

The camp average GPA was 3.57!

The high academic colleges that attended the event included Occidental, Redlands, UPS, Linfield, Willamette, Pacific, Lewis and Clark, Pacific Lutheran, Vanguard, Swarthmore, Multnomah, Alaska Fairbanks, and SPU.

Donald Watts worked with the campers and passed along valuable advice and insight into college basketball. Tim Manson from R3BAR worked with the student-athletes on their training habits, conditioning, and a positive competitive mind set. WCE President Ryan Silver gave a great seminar to all the parents about a realistic approach and the current recruiting world. Harvey Rubin from Academic Basketball Club in CT spoke with the players and parents about how to use their high GPA along with their basketball abilities to find the right school where they can grow as true student-athletes.

All the teams were coached by current head and assistant coaches at these prestigious schools. Next high academic camp will be in LA in March 2019.


Seattle Select High Academic Big Foot Classic Recap

Seattle Select High Academic HS teams represented in a major way this year at the Bigfoot Classic in Las Vegas. The 15u team coached by Zac Townsend went to the Sweet 16 in the Platinum division. The 16u team coached by Luke Hamlin went to the Final Four in the Platinum division, and the 17u team coached by Chase Young went to the Sweet 16 in the Platinum Premier division.

The champions of the Bigfoot Classic were the Cali Stars Elite whose only loss of the Summer came to our Seattle Select High Academic 17u team at the WCE Summer Classic a week before. Our high academic standards brought a lot of college coaches and scouts to our games. All of the teams received overwhelming praise from college coaches for the way our teams defend, pass, and play team basketball. We are extremely proud of all of our teams, coaches, and student-athletes.
