Some people wait all year for Thanksgiving and the winter holidays. Others love going to the beach in July.
Well for us at POINT 3, THIS is our favorite time of year. You know why?
Because travel basketball season is back!
That means we get out of the office and out on the road, packing up our POINT 3 gear kits and rolling out into gyms and fieldhouses around the country for what we're calling POINT 3 Showcase Season. Because in our opinion, there's nothing better than that sound of sneakers squeaking against the hardwood, of crowds cheering on their teams, of buzzer-beaters and championship celebrations.
Travel basketball, namely AAU, has recently been getting a lot of bad publicity because of a few rotten apples. At POINT 3, we're proud to partner with and support a network of grassroots event operators who have been running top quality basketball tournaments the right way for so many years.
We select our Showcase partners not only on their reputation for organizing high quality events featuring elite competition, but their history of providing access to basketball players of all skill levels with professionally run tournaments.
Our 2018 Showcase Season kicked off in early April and will accelerate with the beginning of the NCAA Live Evaluation Period starting April 20, when our POINT 3 ambassadors will be on-site at tournaments hosted by the following Showcase partners:
Region – Showcase Partner:
Northeast/Midwest - The Hoop Group (www.hoopgroup.com)
Northeast – BasketBull (www.basketbull.org)
Mid-Atlantic - Big Shots Nation (www.bigshots.net)
Southeast – HoopSeen (www.hoopseen.com)
Southwest - PrimeTime Sports (www.primetimesportz.com)
West Coast - JamOnIt (www.jamonittournaments.com)
Thanks to our network of Showcase Season partners, we'll be at more than 100 tournaments around the country, reaching more than half a million ballplayers!
To keep up with where we'll be on a weekly basis, you can always visit our 2018 Showcase Season page, or follow us on Instagram and Twitter.
See you this summer!
