Stewie 30 Elite Camp

From Thursday through Saturday (March 21 through March 23), 30 of the best players in the classes of 2025 and 2026 were in Brooklyn at a high-level camp, hosted by future hall of famer Breanna Stewart, at her inaugural Stewie 30 Elite Camp. It was an all-expenses paid trip for the players and a plus-one.

I had exclusive access and a front row seat to all of the action.

Breanna said in a post-camp statement on Twitter/X:

“My mission for this camp was to bring the top 30 sophomore and junior high school players together to be immersed in a two-day experience that included on-court training sessions and off-court workshops. These players came to New York with the intention of getting better, and they did just that.

 Thank you to my first Stewie 30 Elite class for making this such a memorable experience. I hope that you left with a new perspective and motivation to continue to get better.

 Thank you to the coaches for building an educational and competitive environment for the players. The energy in the gym was magnetic.”


On Court

The sessions included activation, warm up, and cool down/recovery techniques led by world-renowned expert Susan Borchardt and her staff as well as Pilates expert Brook Bergdahl, skills sessions (including individual skills, 3 on 3, and pickup style 5 on 5) led by Stewie and some of her New York Liberty staff as well as support staff of former collegiate players*, a 90 minute pro-style workout by Stewie (players observed and were able to ask questions after), branding and social media tutorials from experts, and evening socials surrounding screens televising the March Madness games.


This hands-on, no-frills approach by one of the best players in the world was an exceptional experience for the players. They got to see how a 4-time collegiate champion, two-time Olympic gold medalist, and two-time WNBA champion prepares. The access to a women’s basketball icon as well as the Q&A sessions gave these players an advantage as they go back to their hometown teams and club programs. They even were gifted a pair of the yet-to-be-released Puma Stewie 3’s amongst other exclusive gear.

Simply put, this was one of the best camps of this kind that I have ever witnessed. The staff captured their attention on the floor, set the tone with expectations, and delivered on the floor. The players were focused and attentive to details and competed in all aspects of the on-court sessions. They were able to be viewed and interact with Stewie’s support team including the Wasserman agency as well as different brands with which she has partnerships, most notably Puma, with whom she has her shoe and apparel contract.

The Game is in Good Hands

 This camp allowed the players to show how much their games have grown over the course of the high school season. The point guards’ maturation was evident. The 2026 wing/forward class is elite. The posts and forwards are getting better in the way they play with physicality and the consistency of their motors. The guards are learning to play in smaller space and sharpen their overall footwork and shooting consistency.

As the rest of the world seems to be discovering the beauty of the women’s game, we already knew, and are now welcoming them to the table. With the major stakeholders like Breanna Stewart taking the lead on mentoring the next crop of stars and with the plans of others to do the same, we will see the product continue to improve – and at the perfect time.

The Players

Every single player in this camp was amongst the best of the best in the country. They all are a rare combination of talent, potential, physical tools, athleticism and coordination, and work ethic. This recipe will allow them to compete for the coveted opportunities of the future – both on the court and off. All of them will continue to be recruited heavily, go to the school of their choice, and assuming they stay on their current path – will play this game for a long time to come at various levels. They were all engaging and personable and carried themselves at the camp with a sense of curiosity and gratitude very indicative of why they have bright futures.

The important thing is this: there was not one player in there that has not gotten better in some aspect this season – paramount! I have already heard from all of the power conferences who were checking in on the weekend and they all heard the same thing. I am proud of all of them.

Here are some of the outstanding players from the weekend (specifically amongst this group on these days – nothing more. Again, HEAR ME – all of these players are really good, but these few were a cut above the rest):

2025 Class

Emilee Skinner | Ridgeline HS (UT) | Utah Prospects

Glides up and down the court with a poise, aggressiveness, and size at the PG spot that is hard to come by; Has improved her three-point stroke, her shift in small space, and her leadership intangibles

Sienna Betts | Grandview (CO) | Hardwood Elite

Skilled big who is now playing with a more consistent physical motor; Rare combination of strength and feel – good passer and is a threat outside of the paint.. seems to be taking more pride in owning the glass; Has been challenged in certain aspects and is answering.

Grace Knox | Etiwanda HS (CA) | Cal Sparks

May be the most active player in the country right now at her size and agility.. does not miss the opportunity to go after a loose ball or challenge a shot or rebound; Showed the ability to put the ball on the floor, create space for her jumper, and even knock down the three.. her recruitment is about to go through the roof now that she is healthy.

Divine Bourrage | Davenport North (IA) | Example Sports

Superior athlete in the perimeter with skills to match .. sees the floor and can create her own shot; Great size at the lead guard spot which allows her to mix it up defensively and get to the rim to create offensively.. Will play this game for a long time on this trajectory.


Saniyah Hall | Laurel School (OH) | Legends U

A pro’s build and skills are packaged to match.. has a natural feel for the game and is comfortable all over the floor; Footwork is excellent and can score it with the best of them.. Will grow to be elite on both ends of the floor as she locks in to the details. Talented, very good now, and has upside – dangerous.

Trinity Jones | Bollingbrook HS (IL) | M14

Is there a better athlete at the prep ranks now? I’m not sure there is.. She has the frame, wheels, and strength to match and her perimeter skills are steadily improving; She is a terror in transition and almost impossible to stop once she has the defender on her hip .. when the jumper (respectable now) gets pristine – she could be one of those “can do it all” types on the scouting report + can be an elite defensive stopper

Oliviyah Edwards | Elite Prep (WA) | NW Greyhounds

Of all listed here, she is the most projection, but she just has the physical tools that not many have and a resilient way about her on the floor – she’s fearless and confident. She is hard to keep off the glass and a tough cover as she slashes versus opposing forwards. She has a soft touch out to the top of the key and is a physical presence on the defensive end. As she can get in an environment where she is physically challenged every day, the sky is the limit. She asks great questions and is an eager learner – very important.

Olivia Vukosa | Christ the King (NY) | Philly Rise

Continuing to become more agile and mobile with a nice feathery touch on her shot and her passing.. comfortable in all aspects of the game with the ball in her hand; She is money in pick and pop situations because of her range, and then can bang inside on a roll and finish or on the glass.. She is getting taller and stronger and when the release on her shot gets a little higher and she adds some elevation to her mid-range, she will be an almost impossible single-cover.
