On the eve of Halloween, roughly 35 girl attended a Recruiting the Mitten training at Oakland Fieldhouse. This had to be one of my favorite camps that I have been to this year. There was an energy and a positivity that is not common at these types of events- huge shout out to Coach Cam for setting that tone. It was also a fun event due to the number of freshmen that attended. The Class of 2026 is stacked- it has shooters, scorers, passers, and everything else you could ask. There were a ton of players in attendance that were the kind of kid that you hope your daughter has on the team.
Intangibles galore is what you get with SJ. She is a born leader and plays the game the right way. She is an inside out post that can drag out the opposing big- opening driving lanes. She can post smaller players, as well as being able to take kids off the dribble. It is no wonder the GLIAC is all over her.
Here is a kid that could have tried to overexert her influence on the game but focused on team first. This is not to say that s is passive, for she took her shots- including the game winning three to give her team the 2 Minute Challenge Championship. She showcased strong drives and consistent three point shooting, but she also set her teammates up and made a ton of connecting passes. It’s nice to have a kid that is team first on your side.
Brooklyn is a kid that will help you win games offensively. I love how low she gets on drives- something more kids need to do. She is a deadly three point shooter that must be accounted for at all times. Having her on your team will open you up for a ton of opportunities to score.
Troy has a high energy player that loves to rebound. She is very active in pressure defense and makes her way to all sides of the court on every possession. She is relentless on both sides of the ball and in transition.
Jaslyn is the type of player that can set her teammates up for easy baskets. She possesses a very quick first step that easily gets past the first layer of defense; she also requires immediate helpside as her pull up jumper falls at a high percentage. Teams will have to commit multiple defenders, which will open up her passing game.
