The Spring Showcase College Exposure Event at Harper College in Palatine, 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 multiple 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 led by college coaches. Players will be given a jersey with a number, so college coaches can easily identify each player and be able to recruit them. Players will get to be coached by multiple current college coaches who will be on our showcase staff. The showcase is open to seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshman. The number of players at this recruiting camp will be limited to ensure college coaches have the opportunity to evaluate each player. Our Spring Showcase sells out every year. 

Every year our showcase exposure camp draws players from all across Midwest and beyond. Last year’s showcases drew players from 14 states all across the nation, from Florida to California. Past Hoop Mountain showcase participants have gone on play basketball at Indiana, Kentucky, LSU, NC State, Northwestern, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Utah, and many other Div. 1 schools. As well as play at NCAA Div. 2, Div. 3, Junior College, and NAIA schools across the country.        

Hoop Mountain has been running elite exposure events since 1985. You can get further information below in the tabs and register with the blue button. The showcase is on March 24th, 2019
