Stephen Curry's 2019 SC30 Select Camp Kicks Off in the Bay Area
On Monday, a squad of rising high school talents – boys and girls – arrived in the East Bay donning tropical floral patterned Curry 6 footwear and backpacks inspired by California living. It’s the sixth annual 2019 SC30 Select Camp, and while the backdrop is indeed sunny California, what awaits the athletes is three days of non-stop basketball. Clinics, drills and scrimmages led by Stephen Curry and his elite team of trainers and coaches, including his father Dell Curry, are sharing world-class knowledge and skill development tips all aimed at making this next generation of hoops players even better.
This year’s roster of SC30 Select Camp participants includes top players from across the country, one of whom earned his spot this past fall during Stephen’s Underrated Tour, Powered by Rakuten. Quadry Adams caught Stephen’s eye and was invited to attend the SC30 Select Camp after an impressive showing.
3 point shoot outs, 3v3 competition, film breakdowns and skill work provided campers with guidance and insights to help develop their game alongside their peers, and a three-time World Champion and two-time NBA MVP. Seven girls are on court this year – including the return of class of 2021 guard Azzi Fudd and class of 2020 forward Cameron Brink – and they collectively brought the heat, winning two of the four competition-based shooting drills. Class of 2020 point guard Paige Bueckers even went shot for shot with Stephen himself, nearly beating out the best long range shooter in the game.
Following Day 2 of training and competition sessions, Stephen enlisted Paul Winsper, VP of Under Armour Athlete Performance, and Michael Watts, Senior Manager of Athlete Performance, to deliver a message of holistic training and recovery to the athletes – a mindset Stephen has personally adopted and encouraged the campers to integrate into their training, as well. The session included a walk-through of a pop-up recovery space for each of the athletes to experience personalized attention during their time off-court at camp.
Under Armour has outfitted the players with pairs of a Curry 3 Zer0 III halo and ash gray colorway and a black, white and metallic gold Curry 6 colorway available for limited release on UA.com. A teal with floral print Curry 6 custom colorway for game day will drop August 16 at 10 am ET via the UA Shop App.
There's more to come from the East Bay as the players continue to learn from the best in Stephen’s adoptive hometown.
