Teams and players around the region and across the country are getting ready for the upcoming June live periods — two weekends where Division I coaches can attend certified events and watch prospects compete with their high school teams. With one weekend to go before things go live (June 18-20 & 25-27), there’s a number of local events that are serving as a final round of tune-ups before the D-I coaches watch in person for the first time since the COVID pandemic shut everything down in March 2020.
One such event taking place this weekend is the Post & Pivot ‘Pre-Live’ Team Camp, which will take place Saturday and Sunday on the main court at West Catholic Prep. The two-day event features a dozen teams from the area, including 11 teams from Philadelphia/District 1 and one First State school, Middletown (Del.).
CoBL will be there on Sunday for a full day of coverage, but Saturday’s action is also strong, with annual Public League title contenders Constitution, defending Catholic League champs Archbishop Wood, Inter-Ac contenders Haverford School and more getting in a couple games.
Sunday features some of the same teams as Saturday (Cardinal O’Hara, Eng. & Sciences) and some new ones, including hosts West Catholic plus Neumann-Goretti, Imhotep Charter, Academy New Church, Abington and others. The event is open to the public, and tickets will be $10 for Saturday and $12 Sunday.
