The East Coast Shootout exposure event is canceled. For questions, contact skillsplusbasketball@gmail.com.

This is an Individual 1-day event for college prospects who are rising 9th grade through rising 12th grade. It will be held at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV. Players from high schools and AAU clubs can attend. Players will be divided into teams and receive playing time. The games will be played in front of college coaches and scouting/recruiting services that attend.

NCAA rules prohibit Division 1 College Coaches from attending the event, but Division II and Division III College Coaches will still be in attendance. This is a great opportunity to be seen by these coaches and a great way to prepare for the D1 evaluation period.
