The second annual West Coast Showcase event hosted by BC Christian Prep Basketball will be taking place from Nov. 17 to Nov. 19 at the Trinity Western University’s Enarson gymnasium.
This event has attracted large attention from top level teams and players from across Canada and the United States.
Head coach for the BCC Panthers, Doug Dowell wants the top talent in the west coast to be properly recognized while also having players able to stay at home and develop instead of moving to the US.
“The event is in its second year and was established to bring exposure to this level of play to the West Coast of Canada. In the last number of years BC has lost a number of players from our high schools to attend programs in the United States and this is an opportunity for players to stay here and develop and still play at an elite level. Though our program has an international feel it is the goal to make this an opportunity for all the top players in BC to stay at home and experience a top level program without leaving BC,” said Dowell.
This year’s field of teams is filled with talented teams including Wilcox, Saskatchewan’s Notre Dame Hounds; Preston, Washington’s Elite Sports Academy; Seattle, Washington’s Handle It Prep; Winnipeg, Manitoba’s Northstar Prep and Port Coquitlam’s BC Christian Prep.
Over 45 coaches from different programs in attendance. Coaches ranging from NCAA Division 1 and 2 schools as well as NJCAA and Canadian U-Sports and CCAA schools.
The showcase event will all be live streamed at www.bcchristianprep.com if you are not able to attend.
