Bball_irBeginning Tuesday, July 29 and continuing through Thursday, July 31, Red Bank Regional High School will host its sixth annual Maroon and White Team Girls’ Basketball Camp. As many as 200 athletes, representing over 15 high schools, will take part in the competitive sporting event, which  also functions as a showcase for east coast colleges.  Participating teams are primarily from Monmouth County but also include representation from all over New Jersey, including the state Tournament of Champions winner Shabazz High School in Newark.

According to RBR girls’ basketball coach and Maroon and White camp operator James Young, “The camp offers a great opportunity for high school players to develop and practice their skills over the summer in a competitive environment. It continues to grow in popularity, with the same schools returning each year.

“With the advantage of being one of the only NCAA certified events in the region, students also get exposure for college play and scholarship opportunities,” Young continued. “Over 75 coaches representing over 50 Division I, II and III colleges return every year because they like the format and structure.”

Among the colleges that are represented at the Maroon and White Camp are Rutgers, Fordham and Seton Hall Universities; the Universities of Maryland-Baltimore County and Delaware, and Wagner College. The public is welcome and admission is free. Games are scheduled for every hour on the half hour beginning at 3:30 pm through 8:30 pm.
