The Fall Showcase College Exposure Event in Palos Hills, IL is a one day event for high schoolers to play in three games, skill stations, and drills all in front of college coaches. College coaches from all across the Midwest will be in attendance as well as scouting services. There will be scholarship and non-scholarship level college coaches present at the exposure showcase. Evaluations on each player will be sent to every Div. 1 program in the country, as well as every other level college program. 

Each player will play in three games as well as drills and skill stations. Players will be given a jersey with a number on it, so college coaches can easily identify each player and be able to recruit them. Players will get to be coached by current college coaches who will be on our showcase staff. The showcase is open to seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshman. The amount of players at this showcase will be limited to ensure coaches have the opportunity to evaluate each player. The Fall Showcase sells out every year. 

Every year our showcase exposure camp draws players from all across Midwest and beyond. Last years Showcases drew players from 14 states all across the nation, from New York to Texas. Past showcase participants have gone on earn basketball scholarships to NCAA Div. 1 schools such as Illinois, Indiana, USC, Purdue, Northwestern, DePaul, and many others. As well as go on to play at NCAA Div. 2, Div. 3, Junior College, and NAIA schools across the country.
