Pursuit of Excellence
College Showcase
Tentative: April 10-12, 2015

The 4th annual Pursuit of Excellence College Showcase promises to be an exciting weekend of development, exposure and high level competition with some of the best NCAA coaches running practices and game play. It will also be a great opportunity to meet and interact with college coaches as well as the Pursuit of Excellence coaches, see the facility and experience what we do at the Academy and how we can develop you to your full potential as a player.   

Last year, with over 90 girls in attendance, the weekend featured some of the best U18 players in North America! Players were treated to an outstanding weekend of development, exposure and high level competition in front of 19 NCAA and CIS college coaches. Parents enjoyed an informative college coaches panel that discussed the college process as well as expectations at the next level and how their daughter can reach those standards.


The Pursuit of Excellence Female staff would like to thank all the players and parents that participated in last years showcase and look forward to having you back for next years event!
