The Spring Showcase college exposure camp 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 at this 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 all 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 that 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 each player is seen by the college coaches. Each of the past six years our Spring Showcase college exposure camp has sold out.  

Every year our showcase exposure camp draws players from all across Midwest and beyond. Last year our showcases drew players from 14 states all across the nation. 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 hundreds of NCAA Div. 2, Div. 3, Junior College, and NAIA schools nationwide.        

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 below.
