The “Best OF The Best” Middle School Showcase ELITE 25

The First Annual “Best OF The Best” Middle School Showcase was a huge success. With more than 80 participants from all over Florida, Georgia and 2 from Houston. The talent overall was at a very high level for middle school, including 2 fifth graders who held their own.  The event featured a host of drills at the start of the day in where coaches emphasized the fundamentals at each station stop which isn’t always the case when you go to these showcases.  Parents were encouraged to stay before kids broke for lunch as speakers from the company Mypath2D1 (http://www.path2d1.com), spoke on the new NCAA rule changes for initial eligibility requirements that need to be met to receive athletic scholarships.  The second half of the day was all about the games of course.  Below is our list of THE TOP 25 STANDOUTS.
