2017 LOUISVILLE GIRLS’ FALL SHOWCASE

Attention Players and Coaches,

The 4th Annual High Potential Blue-Chip Fall Showcase will take place once again this fall on September 23rd (Saturday) at Bullitt Central High School in Shepherdsville, KY, just 17 miles south of Louisville, between 9 AM and 6:30 PM (EDT).

Players who are either wanting to broaden their college scholarship offers, get noticed by college recruiters or simply just wanting to improve their game against quality competition as they prepare for the 2017-18 season should consider attending. Over 500 select college coaches nationwide will be invited to attend.

I will do a showcase report that will feature each player and will be emailed to over 500 select colleges across America after the event as well as being posted on my web page which will be available to every college coach in America. Ron Harrison of www.kyprephoops.com will be doing pre and post showcase blogs. Harrison has over 5,000,000 hits on his web site and many college coaches follow his blog religiously. I likewise will be doing pre and post showcase blogs.

I have been in the scouting and event profession since 1973. I serve on the selection committee for the Naismith Committee which selects the High School Player of the Year, High School All-American Teams and the High School Coach of the Year for both boys and girls. I do national and regional player rankings which are found at my web page, www.basketball-camp.net, along with a daily blog on high school basketball.

Over 35,000 players over the years have attended my events, many of whom became McDonald’s All-Americans, Mr and Miss Basketballs and all-state players. Over 25 former staff members went on to become head coaches at the Division I level.

College recruiters consider me as their best sixth man since scouts cannot be everywhere at once (there are over 20,000 high schools in the United States). Budget and staff cuts also curtail college coaches from getting out as much as they would like. I have seen over 10,000 high school games and travelled almost 500,000 miles over the years.

The vast majority of the state high school athletic associations allow their female student-athletes to attend basketball events the weekend of September 23-24.

Remember, if you are flying under the radar screens of college recruiters, then the High Potential Blue Chip Showcase is the place to be on September 23rd.  Hope to see you at Bullitt Central High School in Shepherdsville, KY. You won’t regret it.

Click either on the below online-registration form or printable form to register. The cost is only $95.00. Upon receiving your registration form, I will either email or mail you confirmation.

Sincerely,

Rick Bolus
Showcase Director
