Since 2000, the Camp Estival d’Excellence offers the best grade 10 to 12 basketball players in Quebec the chance to develop alongside the best players and coaches of the Excellence groups. The main advantage of the Excellence groups is that they offer the chance to compete in the evening against Cegep division 1 teams. A challenge highly appreciated by our campers! In addition to learning and competing against the best, this also allows players to be seen by the Cegep division 1 coaches who they will play against. The camp for the Excellence groups is built on the model of the “exposure” camps of the United States, without diminishing the quality of the mission of development for the players that the Camp Estival d’Excellence always gave itself. Since 2017, the camp has partnered with North Pole Hoops, the leader in recruitment and promotion of Canadian basketball, to enable players of the Excellence groups to create an exposure opportunity on a North American scale. We will form two groups of boys and two groups of girls who will benefit from the advice of our best coaches. Each Excellence group will be limited to 15 campers, so there is room for a total of 30 players per gender. Here’s what we offer in this group:
