The first day of the second Florida Session at UCF turned in over 100 campers. The competition was jam-packed and the campers came out of the gate looking to prove themselves. There was very little room for error in the try-out games night one. We saw that the kids had come to camp with a will to play hard every second they were here, and so far they have brought it to every station, drill and game they have played.

The early favorite in the NBA division seems to be the Lakers who have ran through every team they have played. Led by Philip Webb and Enrique LaFuente, a duo that has yet to be stopped in this short regular season. We will see what happens as the season progresses and we move closer to the playoffs and seeding. As it usually does here at Five-Star seeding could be decided by our Situation Tournament.
A special treat we do have at this camp is our very own strength & conditioning coach, Nick Couluris, all the way from the Five-Star Office in New York. He has ran station 14 and really given these kids a workout. They have learned multiple drills, stretches and workouts that they will be able to take home with them; that way they will continue to be able to work on their agility, speed and quickness.
Each camper has so far been “all-in” as we like to call it at Five-Star; making sure that each second on the court is not wasted, and each time they leave the hardwood they take something away from their experience.
Some notable players to look out for so far:
