Spring is here and with the new evaluation period comes new opportunities.  For the 2023 club season, the Nike Tournament of Champions is launching The Champions League, a national collection of teams competing in the spring that will culminate in Championships in Chicago this July.

The programs in the league span from TruGame in Alaska to Southeast All Stars in Georgia and Florida to the Central PA Elite and VK Gold out of British Columbia, Canada.

The Champions League competition will kick off during the April 21-23 viewing period at Boo Williams in Virginia and the Elite Is Earned Spring Invitational in California.  Here are some players to know heading into CL.

LIST

Team: Tree of Hope Idaho CL

Latta is a 5-foot-10 guard from Paul, Idaho, who has a natural creative style to her game.  She’s a smooth operator with the ball in her hands and she’s a capable scorer at all three levels, with a nearly unblockable one-legged fadeaway that allows her to score in traffic.  She was an 4A All Idaho selection as a junior averaging 25 points 5.6 rebounds 3.6 assists and 3.2 steals per game for Minico High School.  She holds several offers from Big Sky, Big West and Mountain West programs heading into the spring.
