 "Cream of the Crop" SHOWCASE

This showcase is for players who played in a previous Big 60 Showcase and were named to either the Prystal Scouting Report or the East Coast Index- it's a best of the best end the year event just before basketball season starts.  It is open to the first 100 boys who complete their application (and pay their $128.00 fee) and/or the first 40 girls who complete their application (and pay their $128.00 fee).

Schedule for -14 teams-- (this is for boys and girls)
Teams 1-10 are boys teams and teams 11-14 are girls teams.
There will be 100 boys and 40 girls playing!  Your spot is only guaranteed when you complete your application.

How it works-

8:00 to 8:30- Registration------------Players pick up their numbered reversible jersey and a copy or the rosters and schedule.

This event is for individual players.  We place them on teams, ten players to a team.  Every player gets equal playing  time.
We substitute every 4 minutes.
The rosters will be posted on our website two days before the event with the schedule.  So, we encourage
players to contact college coaches (the
Prystal Plan)  and invite them to watch.  Since the rosters and schedule will be posted,
the college coach knows exactly when you play.
The games are officiated by certified PIAA officials.  We provide the coaches for each team for each game.
Players will play in three games during the day.  There  will be 14 teams, ten boys teams and 4 girls teams.

The games all will be nationally televised via  the technology of live streaming over the internet.  Each game will feature a play by play announcer and a color analyst. 
Plus, all three games are then placed on YOUtube at no additional cost!
