Held from July 5th – July 8th in the Rocky Mount Event Center, this event features some of the top prospects in the country as they take to the court to show off their talents! Read on to learn more about this exhilarating tournament.
What Is The National Exposure Tournament?
This upcoming event brings together the top young athletes from all over the country to showcase their skills against each other. The National Exposure Tournament Series helps athletes get noticed for collegiate play, making the recruitment process easier for more players. The National Exposure Tournament also allows coaches and recruiters to view various statistics of the players on the court!
How Will I Get Noticed?
Participating in this select tournament automatically sets you apart from other players. The best way to get noticed in a national tournament of this caliber is to out-play your competition in various aspects of the game. It is also a good idea to go out of your way to speak to recruiters and coaches to build relationships early on! Coaches look for players who fit their particular playing style, so if you excel in one area of gameplay over another, take advantage of it!
Is Gaining Exposure Even Important?
Events like the National Exposure Tournament are some of the best ways to capture the attention of coaches and recruiters. If you have hopes of playing for a division one or division two college, you will need to branch out to gain attention. Whether that is playing for a traveling AAU team or transferring high schools to showcase your talents, you need the exposure! All too often, players in high schools or on traveling teams fail to gain attention because they do not take the steps in the right direction early!
How Can I Set Myself Apart From The Competition?
Setting yourself apart from the competition can be difficult, especially in a tournament such as the National Exposure Tournament where the skill level is already so high. Practice, practice, practice! Continue to build your skills while you are off of the basketball court. With more advanced skills or a skill set that is in higher demand, you will begin to stand out from the crowd.
