Warriors to revive camps

After three-year hiatus, the Warriors will resurrect their own summer camps on the Manoa campus.

A few years ago, the Warriors ran satellite camps on sites across Oahu. In 2015, they did not hold any camps. Last year, the UH and Michigan coaches teamed on a camp at Saint Louis School. UH coaches also participated in the GPA College Football Showcase.

But with the NCAA’s recently implemented rule eliminating satellite camps and placing tight restrictions on third-party-administered camps, the Warriors plan to conduct camps at UH and, through a partnership, at a school on the mainland. UH’s camps are expected to be held in June. The NCAA allows 10 days for Division I coaching staffs to participate in camps on their campus, their playing site and, through partnerships, at another school’s campus or playing site.

    Curious to see how this will affect mainland schools temping island prospects. When I was a HS senior in Hawaii, I got the chance to attend a Nike camp that had coaches from most WAC schools, but also several Pac-10 (at the time), and even a few Big 12 programs….not so sure if all of these Power 5 recruiters want to spend the precious few days they have now so far from their base….

    Well, if another Division I school wants to have a camp in Hawaii, it will have to partner with UH and count it as part of its 10 camp days.
    A third-party entity could have a camp at a non-UH site, but it wouldn’t be allowed to invite any Division I coaches.
    A third party also could have a camp at UH but, again, no other Division I coaches unless UH is running it. And if UH is running it, it likely would not need a third party.

    If I’m a third party, probably the best thing to do would be to run a camp, video the workouts, and then distribute the videos to teams.
    But it also goes back to the question: What’s the purpose of a camp?
    Is it to get better or to be scouted? Maybe both. Maybe one or the other.
    All I know is my kids went to UH basketball camps to work on fundamentals and get a free ball and T-shirt. It’s different for football camps, I suppose, although, it would be cool to get a football with a T-shirt.

    Hey I’ve loved the blog since it started. But I got a question. What do the videos and big picture between Stephen’s intro and the comments section have to do with Warrior Beat football? I’m confused man, I realize I’m half Pocho but still can someone explain to me how this is all supposed to fit together. I stay confuse.

    RE #7
    Manoa Mist — I don’t think those videos are ST’s doing. Neither is the advertising at the top, side, and bottom. The price of success and viewer hits, I guess…notice the Volleyball and Basketball blogs do not have that video–only the advertising. Heck, even the main Hawaii Warrior World page doesn’t have it…

    Anything that helps our program = good!
    Anything that hurts our program = bad!

    Das it.

    I may be mistaken, but the SA does not manage the digital newspaper subscription, nor the Hawaii Warrior World blogs. The management has been outsourced to an outside vendor that earns its revenue via advertising. Because the football is (or was) the most active (popular) blog, the vendor apparently has placed a premium on advertising space on ST’s blog. Just guessing.

    Ok…forget the camps.
    Now all the mainland coaches know Hawaii has good players.
    So, kids, just make a good video of your best performances.
    Send it to the coaches.
    And mark on the envelope in BIG, BIG, BIG letters, “Hawaii”
    Then wait.

    Islandman from previous days post, yes I did play in the Nebraska game as a Sophomore splitting time with Bill Kaai at Center-Bill “Moose” Skowron was mentioned yesterday post. Moose a Chicago native worked as a Bartender in a Bar across the street from the Hawthorn Race track in Cicero IL. I saw him several times at different events mostly guest appearances on behalf of that towns Mayor. Cicero Illinois has a long and storied past……Al Capones operation base along with many others of his type! I’m in that town several times a week on business. Moose Skowron was a great guy and athlete-

    Maddog50, I have to agree with you about Moose Skowron being a great guy. I met him only once but he ended up sending me a signed photo from his days with the M&M boys in Yankee Stadium. I also remember you from the Nebraska game and your days with the UH. We had quite a few Chicago boys back in those days … particularly from the Catholic League.

    Sangamon Keith, there were 3 of us from CCL and a total of 5 Chicago area kids. Just spent two days golfing in MI with Bill “Cowboy” Letz a 4 year letterman a in top twenty all time for tackles-he and I went to HS and UH together. There a total of some 16 Chicago area guys on roster. Only Bill Tim Feigh and myself stayed to play all 4 years and graduate. We had a lot of really good guys who just upped and left from all over, Texas NJ Canada etc.

    Sangamon Keith I am referencing the years of 1970/74.
