Summer Derby Classic

2018 Summer Derby Classic


The Summer Derby Classic will be held in 2018 at the Mid America Sports Center and The Mid America Sports Center East in Louisville, KY on July 9-12, 2018. 

The 2018 event will include age groups 17U - 15U (14U teams are eligible to play in the 15U age group).  The Summer Derby Classic will bring together many of the nation's elite prep athletes. This will provide college coaches with a tremendous opportunity to scout the up-and-coming youngsters.



The NCAA recently announced that once again in order to participate in coaching activities or sit on the team bench at an NCAA-certified event in 2018, coaches are required to obtain a USA Basketball (USAB) GOLD License. This applies to all teams at our certified events.

Teams without the USAB Gold Licensed coaches will not be allowed to create rosters on the BBCS, and will not be able to participate in the NCAA-certified portion of our events.

Allow 3 weeks for processing. APPLY EARLY!
