Since 1997 the NVWBCA has sponsored a College Showcase to provide a low-cost and convenient opportunity for local players to showcase their basketball skills and ability. In the early years, it was open to Division I coaches, but after NCAA rule changes ended that option, the showcase has focused on providing an event for Division II, Division III, and NAIA coaches.
The events which have been held at both Fairfax High School and Robinson Secondary School have been a popular stop for college coaches from the Middle Atlantic area from New York to South Carolina. Nearly 2000 players from Virginia -especially Northern Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania have utilized these showcases as a part of their campaign to gain an opportunity to play “at the next level”.
Players, parents, high school coaches, and college coaches have commented favorably on the organization and effectiveness of the NVWBCA College Showcases and this event will remain a part of the ongoing advocacy initiatives by the NVWBCA on the behalf of women’s basketball players in our area.
The 20th NVWBCA College Showcase is tentatively scheduled for Late September 2022
