The National Basketball Showcase (NBS) was created to help athletes in the recruiting process to get seen as well as help college coaches evaluate recruits. For players, this is not just a glance, or seen for 30 seconds on their way to another court, but actually evaluated by college scouts.
One of the biggest challenges in Club or high school basketball is to get seen by a college coach. Your high school season, is the same season as most college coaches. Very rarely does a college coach attend a high school game unless its very close to their campus. There are too many conflicts with their practice and game schedule that is makes it very difficult to get seen.
As athletes and parents who play club basketball: you pay alot of money to play summer ball (or you can’t afford club basketball). If you are playing club basketball, you travel to regional and national tournaments to get seen. You may attend several national events where there are 200 or more coaches in attendance. However, are they watching your son/daughters team? In most cases, the answer is “NO”. Our coaches have attended many National tournaments and seen teams that did not have a college coach on their court/gym at all.
The purpose of our event is to be a catalyst for the recruiting process. During a club or high school game, you may only get a few touches, or may not even be on the court when a college scout comes by to watch you. At our event, you get lots of touches/reps. You will go through some drills so college coaches can see what you can do as well as play in controlled games. College coaches want to see you play.
Its a great event for a fraction of the cost of summer/club basketball. Since 2004, we have helped over 10,000 athletes. That’s pretty impressive when you look at a high school or club coach is helping maybe 10-20 athletes per year. Well you do the math. This is what makes the National Basketball Showcase the #1 Showcase in the country.
