Invitations Extended for Buckeye Prep Fall Elite Showcase

Below is an email that was sent out today to all of the players listed on our bulk mailing list extending invitations to the Buckeye Prep Fall Elite Showcase which is currently scheduled for September 21st and 22nd at Central Crossing HS.  If you have attended past events or have previously been extended an invitation and did not receive the email, contact me at: The event should be our biggest and most competitive ever! Click on the elite showcase logo on the right and at the bottom of the page for more specific as well as updated information about the event.

 Attached you will find an invitation and registration forms for the Buckeye Prep Fall Elite Showcase. This year the event is scheduled for September 21st & 22nd. The invitation letter should provide most of the information you need initially. As was the case last year, the event is 2 days.  However, unlike last year, instead of a skills and drills sessions, I have added an additional game, for a total of 4 games. From the feedback I’ve received from parents and coaches, most of you would prefer an additional game as opposed to the skill session.  The fall event will be similar to what you saw last September in terms of the slate of all-star games on Saturday, followed by the first round of league games that will start sometime late Saturday afternoon or early Saturday evening.  As soon as I get the schedule completed I will post it on the website.

 It’s very important that you register ASAP, as this event WILL SELL OUT! With the addition of some of the new Saturday all-star games, there will be a lot more kids participating in the showcase this year, so space will fill up quickly! You can pay your registration fee on line using the Pay Pal link, but make sure you provide specific player information so that your payment can be matched with your child/player.

 As always, I need quality volunteer coaches to work the event. If you or anybody you know is interested in working the event please contact me as soon as possible.  You cannot coach your son or player, and you must be able to render fair and unbiased assessments of the kids you evaluate.  Coaches will be provided with a camp t-shirt and will have access to a fully stocked hospitality room where they relax, eat and drink at no cost.

If you intend to send you son/player, please email me with his name, grade, height and position ASAP so that I can enter his name on the “Committed Player List” below.  This helps me keep track of my numbers and allows people to track who will be attending the event. This list is unofficial, but I find that people like to keep track of the list as it grows to see who is coming to the showcase. I think this showcase has the potential to be the biggest and most competitive event ever, so don’t let your child/player miss this experience! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 614-203-2929.  See you in September!
