The 2015 College Showcase
Wednesday, April 15, 2015  

Come join the Saratoga Sparks for a one night Showcase event at Skidmore College. We are inviting college coaches from all over the Northeast to attend and view the best talent the area has to offer.

Registration is only $70 which guarantees each participant three games and a Showcase jersey to take home.

Our approach is simple, we will create eight teams based on the information provided during registrations. Each player will be assigned a team for the evening and will play three games in front of as many college coaches as we can find.

This event is open to all high school aged players who are looking to play a little more basketball. Everyone is welcome regardless of AAU affiliations.

This is the first event of its kind in our area and we are looking to make it an annual event. It’s a great opportunity for all that attend to network and connect with new people who share the same love of the game.

If your team is attending the Thoroughbred Classic it would be a great idea to kick off the weekend on Friday night. Everyone is welcome to register. This event is hosted by the Saratoga Sparks as a way to promote all athletes, not just the ones who wear orange.

If your interested in participating, either as a player or a college coach, and have questions please contact Carlin DeMarinis (518) 496-7328 or by email at
