HIALEAH, FL - ASA College-Miami men's basketball head coach Jean Dubuisson announced Monday that the program will host a high school team camp on June 1st and June 2nd at the Silver Storm's home arena – The Dent (Bucky Dent Gym).
The camp will host boys' basketball teams from around the South Florida area, guaranteeing each team a minimum of four full-court games over the span of the two days.

Dubuisson, who was recently promoted to Assistant Director of Athletics under Kenney Wilcox, said that hosting a team camp was a natural progression for the ASA Miami program.
"This is something that I wanted to do for some time now…I wanted to really connect ASA Miami with the South Florida high school basketball community," Dubuisson said.

Basketball in South Florida doesn't get the attention and resources that it deserves a lot of times. But there are so many great programs, great coaches, and great players right here in our backyard. By hosting a team camp, we provide a platform for those programs to not only get some extra work but also showcase what they have to offer."
