The Big Stage - NW Showcase

As we interact with college coaches of all size programs, we repeatedly hear over & over that they love to watch potential recruits play for their school team, whether that is high school or college.  The NCAA responded to this by creating two weeks in June where D1 coaches can be out evaluating recruits in person as long as they are playing for their HS teams.  This has seen the creation of events like Section 7 which has turned in to a massive success for teams with D1 prospects on their rosters.  So

This got us thinking, what about the rest of the kids that are good enough to play college basketball, where is their opportunity for a similar experience & evaluation window.  With that in mind, in June of 2024, we hosted the first ever The Big Stage NW Showcase, an event specifically designed to bring programs together to showcase kids that have a chance to play basketball at the non D1 level.  The response from our college partners has been overwhelmingly positive & they fired up at the opportunity to observe a ton of college prospects playing with their high school teams, all at gyms conveniently located close by each other.  And if you think you have a kid that might be a D1 guy, every game will be livestreamed & sent to every college program in America.
