MOUNT PLEASANT, Utah – Not many sports fans in the state of Utah would know that there’s a Top-10 high school basketball program residing in the Beehive State.

Wasatch Academy has become a recognizable basketball brand nationally as one of the top high school programs in the country for their success in recent seasons.

Head Coach David Evans who just completed his first season at Wasatch is now hosting a basketball camp to showcase his school, but more importantly, it gives kids a high-intensity environment to improve as basketball players.

The 2019 Wasatch Academy Elite Basketball Camp has been created to allow 10-18-year-olds to gain experience that encourages team participation and personal development.

The Wasatch Elite Camp takes place June 16th through the 20th from Wasatch Academy and it’s going feature coaching from NBA players George Hill and Frank Jackson along with former BYU basketball star Eric Mika.

Mika who left BYU after just two seasons with the Cougars has been playing professionally in Italy the past two seasons. Mika is currently working to get back to the NBA.

George Hill just completed his 11th NBA season with the Milwaukee Bucks. Hill played one season for the Utah Jazz (2016-17). And former Lone Peak High star Frank Jackson just completed his first healthy season with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Along with professional stars, players from the current Wasatch Academy roster will be helping the campers. Five players on the Wasatch roster are Top 100 recruits from the various recruiting services. Headliners include Maddy Sissoko who is being heavily recruited by UCLA, Michigan State, and BYU and Caleb Lohner who has the entire state of Texas after him.

Spots are still available to register for the Wasatch Elite camp by going to Wasatch Academy’s website, basketball.wasatchacademy.org.
