"I was fortunate to assist Liam in back to back national championships and from that we've built a great friendship based on our common love for this sport and helping athletes and teams succeed. When Liam organises events he puts quality before profit. It is his name on the line and he has organised some amazing events here in the past couple of years. This one is going to be no exception. Liam has enlisted my help to build this event for athletes in South Australia and beyond, along with other local coaches from a range of clubs in South Australia. I'm so excited for this event, the opportunities, development it will provide athletes here in South Australia and interstate. "

The CLF Hoops Showcase will feature the best male basketball players in South Australia from school years 10, 11 & 12, as well as, returning college players with at least 2 years of eligibility. Interstate players are welcome to nominate for the showcase. The experience of playing and training in this type of exposure environment, will help prepare athletes for life as a professional or collegiate athlete.
Over the past 3 years South Australia has experienced a historic boom in talent hitting Division 1 NCAA ranks. With 12 men committing to division 1 programs out of the state over that period, including to high major schools like Oklahoma, Stanford and TCU, and quite a few more in division 2 programs, there is a big focus on South Australian talent by coaches at all levels of the NCAA.
Showcase participants will participate in a full day of drills, physical testing and games. The coaching staff of the event will be some of the best coaches in South Australia.

Coach Liam Flynn
"I cannot express enough how impactful Coach Liam Flynn was on my overall development as a player. His endless knowledge and basketball intelligence slowed the game down for me, in addition to unlocking other personal on-court skills that were previously underdeveloped. Coach is extremely honest, but he is a joy to work with and instills tremendous confidence in all of his players" - Miles Jackson – Cartwright. Professional basketball player, German BBL, NCAA Division 1
"Coach Liam Flynn is very experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to player development. His workouts are position specific and they translate to game like situations. He pays close attention to detail and footwork; the little things that'll help give you the edge in a game." - Suleiman Braimoh, Professional Basketball Player – Israel (Winner League), France (ProA), Russia (VTB League), Germany (BBL)
For Andrew Jantke (Coach Janx) – High-Performance Hoops Network
“Andrew’s knowledge and expertise in this area and his connections to US coaches as well as his knowledge of how the US College system works has been a “money can’t buy” support for our son and to our family. As a developing elite basketball player and as a family of that player, I believe you can do no better than to have Andrew Jantke in your corner.”
From the parent of current division 1 NCAA scholarship holder in the Big Sky Conference
"Andrew has continued to care and support us as a family during our basketball journey. Through encouraging important coaches at high levels in Australia or USA College Coaches to look at our son and his value as a player, taking a continued interest in his development and pathway and being an ear to listen and help make things clearer for us as a basketball mentor."
