Hawaii's Premier Sports Camps
"Jalen did attend several camps in Hawaii: Hawaii Hoops (Kona), Phenom Camp (Oahu) and your Maui Sports Academy Exposure Camp. We posed the question to Jalen regarding "the best camp he attended this year... and he had "no hesitation" as he said THE MAUI CAMP!!! (for a lot of reasons, believe me!!!)"
--Dave Carvalho, parent of Jalen Carvalho - Hilo High, 2010, 2011 & 2012 Exposure Camp attendee

2012 CAMP ANOTHER HUGE SUCCESS!!!
LAHAINA, Maui – Another summer, another great Maui Sports Academy Hawaii High School Basketball Exposure Camp, solidifying it once again as the #1 basketball camp in the state of Hawaii. Most of the state’s top players representing the top programs such as Iolani, Kamehameha Hawaii, Kalaheo, Seabury Hall, and Baldwin participated in the weeklong overnight camp held at the Lahaina Civic Center, the longtime home of the Maui Invitational college basketball tournament.
The 2012 camp (8th annual) again boasted a stellar coaching staff. Hawaii basketball legends Derrick Low (Iolani/Washington St.) and Kyle Pape (Iolani/Colorado School of Mines) were joined by three of Maui’s greatest high school hoopsters Cody Tesoro (Baldwin/Linfield College), Gene Rivera (Maui High/Lewis & Clark College) and 4-time camp attendee Dylan King (Seabury Hall/Regis University). All three were All State selections. The college coaches included 2-time Hawaii HS state champion Jesse Nakanishi (Hawaii Pacific), Brendan Hallinan (University of La Verne) and Chet Hesson (University of Hawaii Asst. Dir. of Compliance) along with camp director and former college and professional coach Alan Walls.
At the conclusion of the camp championship teams were crowned and various camp award winners were honored. The top prize was the Camper of the Week award which goes to not only one of the top players at the camp but also one that displays leadership, a great work ethic, self-discipline and a high level of character. In what was a tough vote by the coaches, the 2012 COW award went to point guard Lanaki Apele of Kamehameha Schools – Hawaii. Lanaki is only the second camper to ever attend four camps and be continuing his athletic and academic careers at California Lutheran University.
The Coach of the Week award was given to first-year camp coach Brendan Hallinan. Coach Hallinan showed high enthusiasm all week, really coached up this team, led some great stations and really got the campers excited about playing basketball.
The Lunch Box award, given to the camp’s hardest worker who competes and practices with a blue-collar work ethic and “brings his lunch box to work everyday,” was awarded to Maryknoll’s Joshua Burnett.
Participating in the annual Camp All-Star Game were Curtis Tavares (Kapolei), Shaun Kagawa (Kamehameha Schools – Hawaii), Lanaki Apele (Kamehameha Schools – Hawaii), Joey Niccum (Buckingham Charter, CA), Jackson Durrett (Island Pacific Academy), Joshua Burnett (Maryknoll), Brenton Shropshire (Konawaena), Joshua Niccum (Buckingham Charter, CA), Chris Dillard (Kapolei), Joshua Ko (Kalaheo), Kahanu Puulei-Auld (Moanalua) and Alika Alip (Honokaa). Cameron King (Seabury Hall) and Alex Tungpalan (Kalani) were also selected to represent the DII camp league. Apele was named the All-Star Game MVP. The All Star coaches were Jesse Nakanishi and Chet Hesson.
The 5-on-5 League Champions were coached by Chet Hesson and led by team MVP Joshua Burnett. Also on the team were Joshua Ko (Kalaheo), Joey Niccum (Buckingham Charter, CA), Michael Ahn (Baldwin), Zachery Reeves (Kaoplei), Ikaika Phillip (Iolani) and Alika Alip (Honokaa).
Taking home the 3-on-3 League Championship were Lanaki Apele, Gabe Gunter (King Kekaulike), Jordan Ferri and Spencer Perieff (Lahainaluna).
Without a doubt the 5-day camp was a huge success and all the campers and coaches did an outstanding job, continuing to improve on the success of the previous camps and setting the bar high for next summer’s campers.
