Under the guidance of current and former NBPA members, coaches, and officials, players at Top 100 participate in basketball combine drills, learn offensive and defensive strategies on the professional level, and compete in team scrimmages in a tournament-style format. Players also attend educational sessions and participate in group discussions on mental health & wellness, financial literacy, and NIL rights, equipping players with the knowledge needed for success beyond the basketball court.

“As we mark the 30th anniversary of the TOP 100 Camp, we celebrate a milestone in developing elite talent and shaping young lives,” said Purvis Short, SVP of Player Programs at the NBPA. “The camp has consistently provided a robust platform for elite athletes to hone their skills under the guidance of some of the greatest minds in basketball. Witnessing the evolution of this camp has been a profound honor. The combination of high-caliber on-court action and comprehensive skill development encapsulates our commitment to nurturing skilled athletes and well-rounded individuals. We foster resilience, discipline, and a strong work ethic, ensuring each participant is equipped for success in basketball and life.”
