The 2009 July "live" evaluation period sizzled the state of Wisconsin this past summer as college coaches and teams from coast to coast filled the stands and filled the courts during the 2009 Next Level Invitational and the 2009 NY2LASports.com Summer Jam events.  The 2010 summer promises to be just as hot as both events have once again been cleared for certification by the NCAA and both events will again be certified for Division 1 college coaches to attend.  For the Next Level Invitational this will be the 4th year of the event and its been certified every year.  The Summer Jam will be in its second year and certified as well.    To view the NCAA Certification Eligibility Letter regarding these two events CLICK HERE

The "LIVE" evaluation period is a crucial time for players to be seen and NY2LASPORTS.COM specifically designed the Next Level Invitational and Summer Jam with that in mind.  All games for each event are held inside one premiere facility with every game for every age group on the courts where college coaches are in attendance.  No more driving from spot to spot for teams and college coaches arrive and are treated to a first class environment that includes lunch and dinner every day for the coaches thereby making it as convenient as possible for the coaches to grab their meals but stay in the gym and get more opportunities to see the kids on the court, which is the main objective of any "live" event.  Coaches can walk in and catch every game they want to each and every day and that translates into more opportunities for kids to be seen by Division 1, Division 2, Division 3, NAIA and NJCAA college coaches who are in attendance.  There are some who may talk the talk but NY2LASPORTS.COM prefers to do its walking by providing excellent convenient "live" events year after year that are loaded with college coaches and talent alike and on point in terms of scheduling, efficiency, exposure, etc. like no other.  Opportunities to be seen are at a minimum during the spring/summer and the Next Level Invitational and Summer Jam events put there focus on exposure and getting true college looks by programs from coast to coast.  This has been the case year in and year out and the 2010 summer promises to be as exciting as ever once again.  Here are the details for these events in July 2010...

The 2010 Next Level Invitational will hit the hardwood July 6-9, 2010 and will again be certified for Division I college coaches to attend (4th straight year!).  The event will host 14u-17u teams with all games taking place inside the same facility!  Add to the mix extensive exposure on NY2LASPORTS.COM and its affiliated sites, coverage by the HoopScoop, coverage by SLAM Magazine via SLAMONLINE.COM and you're talking about one of the premiere events to kick off the July "live" evaluation period once again! Last year's event grew once again with teams from North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin in attendance.  Equally strong was the college coaches turnout as close to 200 college coaches from across the country made the trip!  Teams are already loading up again for this one as the Next Level Invitational promises to open up the July 2010 "LIVE" evaluation period once again in big time fashion!  For more information on the 4th annual Next Level Invitational July 6-9, 2010 CLICK HERE

To say the 2009 Summer Jam was a national event could very well be the understatement of the year.  Not only was it a national event but it was arguably one of the premiere events to drop during the entire 2009 July "LIVE" evaluation period.  Teams from California, Georgia, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin took to the courts in one of the most explosive and talented events of the year!  While the likes of Jelan Kendrick, Ray McCallum Jr., Trey Zeigler, Branden Dawson, Vander Blue, etc. were just a few of the talented prospects on the hardwood, the stands were packed with college coaches including some of the biggest names in the business.  Ben Howland (UCLA), Tubby Smith (Minnesota), Thad Matta (Ohio State), Matt Painter (Purdue), Bruce Weber (Illinois), Buzz Williams (Marquette), Bo Ryan (Wisconsin), Greg McDermott (Iowa State), John Thompson Jr. (Georgetown), Billy Donovan (Florida), Tom Izzo (Michigan State), Tom Crean (Indiana), Paul Hewitt (Georgia Tech), Herb Sendek (Arizona State), and John Beilein (Michigan) were just a few of the many head coaches who rocked the stands at the Summer Jam.  Add to the mix schools from virtually every conference in the country and its easy to see why the Summer Jam grabbed headlines across the country.  Game after game was packed and 2010 promises to be once again one of the premiere events in the country!

The 2010 Summer Jam will tip off July 12-15, 2010 and will again be certified for Division 1 college coaches to attend for the 2nd straight year!  The event will host 15u-17u teams will all games again taking place inside the same facility.  Exposure will be at a premium with NY2LASPORTS.COM, SLAMONLINE.COM, and the HoopScoop once again covering the events along with other recruiting services.  This event will wrap up the early portion of the July 2010 "LIVE" evaluation period and promises to be more explosive and talented than ever!  For more information on the 2nd annual Summer Jam July 12-15, 2010 CLICK HERE
