IN-CAMP EVALUATION AND SELECTION
Two National Evaluators per grade will preside over player evaluations, working with Jake Reed, Jamie Munro, and 6 coaches per grade. By having the same two National Evaluators focus on the same grade at all five camps, 3dbc ensures that all players will be given equal consideration for an invitation to the Jake Reed Nike Blue Chip Lacrosse Camp.
Players at 3dbc will be evaluated on their performance throughout the weekend. This includes the training sessions, during which coaches and National Evaluators will see how players react to new situations, concepts, personnel, and instruction. As camp transitions to gameplay, players will be graded on their ability to implement the new concepts from the training sessions, in addition to their overall performance, athleticism, lacrosse IQ, effort, attitude, and coachability. Lastly, it should be noted that the 3dbc evaluation begins and ends at 3dbc – no previous or future recommendations, endorsements, statistics, records or other information will go into the considerations as 3dbc determines who has earned a spot at the Jake Reed Nike Blue Chip Lacrosse Camp.
While all players will have equal opportunities to perform, the number of invitees will not necessarily be the same for each regional camp; regardless of regional numbers, 3dbc will invite the best players from the five camps combined. National Evaluators and camp coaches have an evaluation process with multiple criteria, and will use the same system to evaluate and rank players across the country. Once all five camps have concluded, the National Evaluators will work with Jake, Jamie, camp coaches, and other 3dbc personnel to finalize the selections and invite players to the Jake Reed Nike Blue Chip Lacrosse Camp accordingly.
Players selected for Jake Reed’s Nike Blue Chip Lacrosse Camp will be invited to compete at UMBC in Catonsville, MD on dates TBD.
