Registration for all tour stops (Chicago, Dallas, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles), free to all oarticipants, is now open
LOS ANGELES (Jan. 22, 2020) – Stephen Curry announced today that he is bringing his Underrated Tour Powered by Rakuten back for a second year, this time across U.S. cardinal points: Kicking off with Chicago in the North (February 22nd-23rd), Dallas in the South (March 7th-8th), Washington, D.C. out East (March 14th-15th), Los Angeles out West (March 21st-22nd), with a championship close-out in the Bay Area (April 3rd-5th).
Year 2 of the Underrated Tour Powered by Rakuten returns Stateside, bigger and better, after its international launch last year. All tour stops will be co-gender and free, and the top eight girls and boys from each region (64 finalists plus a parent/ guardian), will be flown to the Bay Area Championship, courtesy of United Airlines.
The 64 finalists will compete for two coveted spots in Curry’s Under Armour Select Camp. Other offerings include the same specialized training and tailored activations seen in the inaugural year, providing America’s most promising athletes with best in class resources (drills, off-court education, personal skills development, expert panels, etc.), knowledge and access.
A once-underrated basketball player himself, Curry, the now three-time NBA Champion and MVP with six NBA all-star selections, came to the realization that he himself would not have been invited to his own high school select camp because he was not rated highly enough. With an aim to continue to innovate the traditional camp model, the first-of-its-kind platform allows young men and women from all backgrounds the opportunity to find success and achieve their basketball dreams.
“I’m just trying to leave this game a little better than how I found it,” said Curry in the 2020 announcement. Adding, “It’s for the kids out there who don’t quite fit the mold, but who just need the right opportunity to show what they can do.”
