The Elite Academic Athletes Showcase, an event for incoming sophomores, juniors and seniors, will take place next month in Lake Barrington. The one-day showcase will be July 11 at the Lake Barrington Fieldhouse and run from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The event will include a NBA-like combine to give each student-athlete an opportunity to show his abilities in front of college coaches at all levels, including highly-regarded academic universities. There will be skill work and drills prior to players being placed on teams. The afternoon session will include a team practice and three games. Each player must carry at least a "B" average academically to participate (3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale or a 3.7 GPA on a 5.0 scale).

For those student-athletes interested in participating or for more information, call (847)-260-8119 or email info@eliteacademicathletes.info.
