Elite 75 Going Live!
The New England Elite 75 Showcase has teamed up with Reebok Grassroots Basketball and their Proving Ground Regional Combine to make New England’s premier showcase a live event for the first time in July, 2009.
For the first time ever division I college coaches will be allowed to attend what has become a must attend event for all of New England’s top players.
The event will take place on July 9, 2009 at the Mansfield SportsPlex in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
As always, participants are selected on an invitation only basis as the showcase is designed for the top 75 scholarship prospects in the region.
A select number of invitations will be awarded at the Reebok Headliner Tryout Camp to be held on May 30th and 31st, also at the Mansfield SportsPlex. The Headliner Camp is open to any player in the class of 2010, 2011, or 2012. To learn more about the upcoming Headliner Camp or to register click here.
