This paper reports on the pre-event planning and event coverage for an elite level high school basketball exposure camp. Sixty-one (61) of the best male basketball athletes in Ontario were assembled for three days of intense training and games. This paper is not a study of the current literature data on type and/or frequency of basketball injuries. Data from this one event on athlete demographics, types and frequency of injuries as well as sports health care service usage are included. Information on event organization will serve to assist future sports event health care planners in the organization of their sport health care teams.
