The camp is used to identify athletes for future USA National Team events. A number of WNBA stars were at the camp including Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart, Sklyar Diggins-Smith and Stefanie Dolson. They were joined by collegiate All-Americans Napheesa Collier (Connecticut), Asia Durr (Louisville), Kelsey Mitchell (Ohio State), Katie Lou Samuelson (Connecticut) and A'ja Wilson (South Carolina) in the first organized team event of Dawn Staley's tenure as head coach.
