Northeast Elite College Showcase

Northeast Elite Fall Ball College Showcase
Veterans Day Classic
In existence since 1996, The Original College Showcases in New England, are The Northeast Elite College Showcase and Commotion by the Ocean College Showcase. Commotion by the Ocean also hosts a 66 team venue for younger teams. When the NCAA added a Fall viewing period, we dropped one of our original Fall Ball Tournaments, The Columbus Day Classic, and added the Fall Northeast Elite College Showcase. We continue to host our Veterans Day Classic tournament the first weekend in November, the last of the original Fall Ball tournaments.
We have been very successful in challenging the colleges in the Northeast to take serious looks at the talent in their own back yards.
We want to thank the teams who have participated in our tournaments for helping to keep the talented athletes of the Northeast together so that collectively we are able to maximize exposure for our Northeast student-athletes. We are proud of the talented teams in the Northeast who could draw the recruiting interest of the Colleges listed below.
