the year or coach against him twice a year.”

The Reebok Breakout Challenge is back for 2012 to once again give deserving
players an opportunity to let their game make their name. It all started in
the summer of 2007 as John Wall used The Reebok Breakout Challenge as his
personal playground and elevated this path to stardom. Yes, John Wall
attended the Breakout in 2007, as an unknown and unranked player with no
national reputation. John Wall simply had a “breakout” performance on the
court and his game made his name and not the other way around! By the end of
the summer, John Wall was the number one ranked player in his class by
several scouting services and went on to be the number one pick in the 2010
NBA Draft.

The Reebok Breakout Challenge will take place on July 10-13, 2012 at
Philadelphia University in Philadelphia, PA. It will consist of games and
training sessions, and most of all it will be held during the important
“live period” to NCAA College Coaches for evaluation. There are simply two
ways to earn an invitation to this prestigious camp. First, a player must be
unanimously be selected by Reebok’s committee of national scouts or earn an
invitation by being a top performer at the Reebok Headliner Try Outs or the
Reebok Showdown Series.
