The Orange Bowl’s mission and vision is to promote and serve South Florida in order to inspire youth, engage the community and enhance the economy. The Orange Bowl Florida High School Basketball Showcase presented by American Airlines meets that mission and vision by providing an opportunity for young student-athletes to use their basketball and academic skills to attend college and ultimately earn a degree. This effectively has the profound effect of changing young peoples' lives.
The Orange Bowl Florida High School Basketball Showcase presented by American Airlines is a FREE one day event that will bring together Florida high school seniors and juniors to meet with educational institutions in Division II, III, NAIA and Junior colleges from across the country. In light of COVID, this year we have implemented numerous health and safety measures to comply with local, state, and national coronavirus restrictions. In addition to performing temperature checks during the check-in process, colleges, student-athletes, volunteers, and staff persons will receive various PPE items. Additionally, student-athletes activities will be slightly modified along with the implementation of various sanitation protocols. While encouraging social distancing, attending colleges and universities will still have the opportunity to view participants compete in a series of tests and drills that best display each player’s various talents at their respective positions. Following the showcase, players and universities will meet to discuss scholarship opportunities for the participating athletes. Masks must be worn at all times and additional precautionary measures will be put in place.
All student-athletes must pre-register. The participant must be a graduating high school senior or a high school junior who has not accepted a scholarship offer from a college basketball program. Student-athletes are highly encouraged to bring copies of high school transcripts and ACT/SAT test scores.
All Division II, III, NAIA, and NJCAA athletic directors and head basketball coaches are invited to attend. There will be ample time for coaches to view the athletes in drills and to talk to them individually about their respective basketball programs. Staffs from admissions and financial aid departments are encouraged to attend as well.
