NorCal Check Me Out Showcase

Showcase Camps, Mini-Camps, Academies

Fall is a busy time of year for us to host, participate in skill and exposure camps.  Players are on somewhat of a hiatus from club basketball and for most states, official high school practice doesn’t start till late October.  This year we started things off with our very own Super Elite 48, held in downtown Phoenix Arizona, September 13-14. Then it was on to Minnesota for Chris Hansen’s Check Me Out Midwest October 11-12. We worked with a deep pool of talented players from the area including #16 nationally by ProspectsNation.com and Kentucky commit Lindsey Corsaro.  Minnesota was followed up by a very successful Norcal Check Me Out Showcase in Oakland, October 18-19. Some of the regions top players were in attendance like Washington commits Mai-Loni Henson, Aari McDonald, Cal commit MaAnne Mosley and USA team members Kristine Anigwe (Cal Commit) and Sabrina Ionescu.  The fall showcases came to end in Philly and College Park for the Keil Moore Fall Showcase. Again,  some of the regions top prospect student athletes were in attendance (PN #12 Kaila Charles, GT commit- Martine Fortune, Jordan Wilmots).

Super Elite 48

September 13-14 saw another very successful coming together of the state’s most talented players for West Coast Girl’s Hoops’ Super Elite 48.  Each participant went through various skill stations overseen by a great and experienced staff. They all played in five competitive games and received valuable tutelage throughout from the coaches and trainers.

The event was covered by two NCAA compliant scouting services, JumpOffPlus.com and WestCoastGirlsHoops.com . On hand to provide media coverage was the nation’s leader in girl’s basketball coverage, ProspectsNation.com . Also AZGR made an appearance to get a look at some of the talent.
