A Girls' Basketball College Recruiting Showcase 

Hello High School Basketball Junkies: 

Tom “Coach Storm” Hellen and Brian Harris are back again. We are inviting you to play in our 18th Annual Best of the Best September Showcase, to be held at the Clark Athletic Center on the campus of UMass Boston on Sunday, September 17th from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.  

This year, the “Player Profile/Information” Form must be filled out on line at our website, The “Insurance & Consent” Form must be downloaded from our website, completed and either returned by regular mail or as an e-mail attachment. 

The cost for the Showcase is $119. This can be paid on-line through our website (there is a processing fee) or by check or money order made payable to “Coach Storm5 LLC” and mailed to Tom Hellen at 5 Dresden Circle, Somerville, MA 02144. Personal checks and/or money orders are accepted. Enrollment in the Showcase is not complete until the forms and payment are received.  

Please pass this info on to others who may be interested. Space in the Showcase is limited to 120 high school players and we expect to have a waiting list—so do not delay! 

Why should you play? First, by being invited you have been identified by us and/or coaches as a player with the potential to play in college. Each year, close to 100 Division 2, Division 3 and junior college head and assistant coaches attended this showcase. Your player profile information will be included in the “Coaches’ Packet” that we give to all coaches in attendance. However, there are restrictions regarding Division 1 college coaches attending during this time period.
