More from USA Basketball Press Release

"We have seen how beneficial the minicamp has been for everyone involved over the past seven additions, and we look forward to another successful event in 2016," said Sean Ford, USA Basketball Men's National Team Director and chair of the USA Basketball Men's Developmental National Team Committee, which is responsible for selecting rosters for the annual Nike Hoop Summit and the U16 and U17 national teams.

As it has been since the inaugural camp in 2009, the minicamp will be led by Don Showalter (USA Basketball Youth Division Director of Coach Development), who has led USA Basketball U16 and U17 teams to eight straight gold medals. Under Showalter, USA teams have won four straight FIBA U17 World Championships (2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016) and four consecutive FIBA Americas U16 Championships (2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015) while compiling a remarkable 50-0 overall record.

"The minicamp is the first introduction to USA Basketball for these U16 players," Showalter said. "The success we have enjoyed at the U16 and U17 level starts with this training camp. It is a great opportunity for players to learn some of our system and for the coaching staff to evaluate strengths and weaknesses of the team. The addition of the Hoop Summit and U18 player pool makes this minicamp extremely competitive and greatly helps to evaluate young talent."

Showalter will be assisted during the minicamp by five court coaches, including Jay Blossom (Webster Groves H.S., Mo.), Corey Frazier (St. Louis Eagles AAU, Mo.), Mike Jones (DeMatha Catholic H.S., Md.), Miles Simon (California Supreme AAU) and Terrance Williams (ProScholars Athletics Cardinals AAU, N.Y.).
