The COVID-19 pandemic was tough on the next generation of hoopers. Seasons were cut short, opportunities to compete for conference/state championship were abruptly halted, senior seasons ended earlier than anticipated (congrats class of 2020!), and this summer, AAU tournaments and showcase events were all cancelled. SLAM understands that it has been an especially difficult time for all young bucket-getters to showcase their talent.
To help hoopers get right for the game, SLAM partnered with Gatorade for a special event to showcase their talent.
On Saturday, October 31, SLAM will host the SLAM16 SHOWCASE, featuring the top 16 high school basketball players in the New York City area. The girls will compete at 2:00 p.m. EST, followed by the boys at 4:30 p.m.
The Roster will be announced on Tuesday, October 26.
To follow COVID-19 safety guidelines, the SLAM 16 Showcase can be viewed via livestream on Facebook, Youtube and Twitter. Make sure you’re subscribed to SLAM Highlights to the watch the games LIVE:
