der Wayne Dawkins was held 11 years ago at St Michaels College in Toronto, Ontario as the opening event of the now famous Rumble in the T-Dot and showcased to college coaches all the participants of the All Canada Classic National All Star Game and many more upcoming college prospects from across Ontario. The 100 athletes in attendance are now some of Canada's veteran professionals and national team members such as Denham Brown -U. Connecticut, Jermaine Anderson - Fordham U. and Olu Famutimi - U. Arkansas and from the smallest NCAA coaches to powerhouses like Jim Calhoun, Head Coach of U. Connecticut it was their first glimpse into the depth of the Canadian basketball talent pool.
Fast forward to 20 11 and the All Canada Prospect Camps still remains Canada's longest running and top showcase event for high school prospects. It now features a girl's camp, continues to draw 100's of our nation's best ballers and has solidified itself as an annual pitstop for 100's of NCAA, CIS, OCAA, National and Provincial team coaches and scouts. For PHASE 1 the ACPC has been the best event for identifying talent for our famous All Canada Classic and Rising Stars Showcase. However the events greatest success has been on the court with over 200 ACPC boys and girls receiving scholarships in the past decade.
In addition, the success of the ACPC is in not just in the talent level of the athletes attending but a lot can be attributed to PHASE 1 creating an environment of competition and development in the comfort of our backyard for local talent. Many athletes, parents and coaches have strongly agreed that not traveling long distances to unfamiliar American cities and gyms where Canadians are outsiders trying to take American scholarships makes for a more favourable environment for a young athletes confidence.
The ACPC has been a great first stepping stone event for many

of Canada brightest young stars like

Tristan Thompson - U. Texas, Devoe Joseph - U. Portland, Corey Joseph - U. Texas, and Jevohn Shepherd - U. Michigan

to display their skills for college coaches and for a number of high school seniors like Kevin Pangos - Gonzaga U., Kyle Johnson-Long Island, with the camp being held at the end of the summer recruitment period it has been their final showcase event.
