    Spain Preparations/Summer BBall Activity

    I thought it would be nice to have a thread where some of you insiders can post info leading up to Spain....Only 8 weeks away, that's about halfway to Musketeer Madness!

    I notice that some or all of the guys will arrive on campus starting this week and some coordinated activity will begin. To what extent is allowed I have no idea but hoping some of you do. I also read where a series of full practices are permitted leading up the the Spain departure in August. Obviously this is a huge advantage over other teams that are not afforded this added time to gel.....not to mention the luxury of playing some real competition at full speed.

    I read somewhere that at this time the players are limited to 8 hours of organized activities....4 hours of training and 4 hours of court time.....per week. I’ve also seen where they can have 10 practice sessions in preparation for the Spain trip, but I’ve not sure what the limits are there as far as time and frequency.

    Yeah,
    I am really interested to hear who shows up this week and participates in the 4 and 4 hour stuff. The S&C is a given but would love to know what the "organized activities" entail and if Coach and staff are hands on.

    I think that all of the freshman and returning players are on campus. I think the court time (with coaches) is mostly skills work and drills. But I’m quite sure that the players will find some time for some inter squad scrimmages on their own. I don’t think there is any limit on what they can do in the practices before the summer trip, but I’m sure there is a limit on the length of time they can practice during those sessions.

    Edit..I just read the rules on this and the court time is limited to “skills instruction” Coaches are not allowed to participate in or even watch the strength and conditioning sessions, but there is no limit to the number of coaches allowed to participate in the skills sessions....which are limited to 2 hours per week.

    Also, in order to participate all of the freshman must be enrolled in summer school. Returning players and transfers have different rules regarding their eligibility to participate.

    This is all true. With the addition that ALL players, new and returning, will be at XU starting this week. There isn't much vacation when you are a D1 College player. Add to that, there is a Summer Academic session starting July 1 that is over the time the team leaves for Spain. Some kids will be getting a head start on school now.

    I don't really know the full story. It kind of came up out of nowhere, I got an email about it from the Steele Camp people. It was free and three hours. And the Kanters are doing them around the country (https://themaestrosports.com/camps/#!/form). They gave kids pizza and t-shirts. In a cynical world, where little is done for free, I honestly have thought somehow there was more to the story. But it really seems the Kanters are just good dudes trying to do good deeds. It's pretty cool and refreshing.

    OK, so it was more of an appreciation deal as apposed to a serious development camp. I know it was FREE for this event, BUT I'm hoping it can be a every year event and catch fire!
