The LeBron Skills Academy features 30 of the top collegiate players from around the country. Player will have four days of competitive skills workouts and 5-on-5 games in order to showcase their skills for NBA scouts in attendance. Players will take what they learned at the previous skills academies and implement them into a team setting on the floor.
