: : : : Where and when are there Saturday Showcases in January?
: : : We host one @ Antelope Valley always looking for great comp.
: : If you want great comp, you are going to have to travel.
: : No one wants to go there.
: : Not bashing, just the truth. Too many options in closer, more hospitable environments.
: That was not needed. If someone wants to go to AV, let them choose that. Someone asked a question, now you have to come on a destroy a persons BUSINESS. Not needed. Let's keep it basketball.
It's a double edged sword because everyone expects the Antelope Valley teams to always travel.
AV runs a good and hospitable showcase event. Last year, Canyon, Ayala, Heritage Christian and Lancaster all played at the showcase. Obviously Canyon is the best of that bunch, but the others had fairly decent years.
It is always a conundrum... it is actually good for teams in the Burbank, IE, Pasadena or even Ventura area to travel up to the AV as it simulates playoff style trips. The showcase is on a Saturday so school isn't missed and it would be nice for AV to be able to host 8-12 good teams.. one travel day for the year isn't much.
As a local coach near AV I know how hard it can be to travel for 4-5 days in a row for a tournament (we (AV Teams) have to do it all the time), so don't give me bologna about travel when teams go to Arizona, Vegas, San Diego, etc.
