There are 3 main types of basketball recruiting events: camps, showcases and tournaments. Each basketball event has its own unique advantages. Visit the pages linked below to learn more about each type of basketball event.  

how to choose which basketball events to attend and when

Your grade level and stage in the recruiting process is important to consider when choosing which basketball event to attend. Attending these events at the right time can increase your chance of getting recruited by college coaches.  

Most basketball recruiting events are held in the spring and summer. There are also many basketball training camps helps during the winter months. However, April and July are the biggest months for men’s college basketball recruiting because of the NCAA evaluation period. During this time, NCAA D1 and D2 basketball coaches can watch you in person, but they can’t speak to you off campus. 

Check out our recommendations for when to attend the various basketball events based on grade level.
