Who To Watch Checklist: 2012 Champlain College Summer Challenge



On June 23 and 24, 2012, Champlain College St-Lambert will play host to the 3rd Annual Lady Cavalier Summer Challenge. This 16 team, Under-19 event will feature 8 Quebec AAA teams, 5 from Ontario, 1 from Nova Scotia and 2 teams from the United States.

The showcase has been set up for all 16 teams to play 4 times each over the the course of the weekend, amounting to 32 games to be played between Champlain College and neighboring Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes High School in St Lambert, Quebec, a city just beyond the Montreal city limits. And, even though the Summer Challenge is only in its 3rd year, organizer George Germanos is confident about the high level of talent that will be involved with the event based on past participants, and this year’s confirmed teams.

“I expect about 50 or so of the players in the Lady Cavaliers tournament to play post secondary basketball,” said Germanos when assessing the calibre of play. “And, that might be on the conservative side.”

Backing up that assessment, apparently also seeing the upside in the teams and players that have confirmed their attendance, are several CIS, NCAA coaches along with members of the staff from the Canadian Junior National team that have expressed great interest in attending.

The teams that are scheduled to attend are:

Champlain College(St Lambert, Quebec)
