The IHSBCA Junior Showcase and All-Star Series have been cancelled for this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  More information on both is listed below.

Media release - July 3rd, 2020 - IHSBCA Jr Showcase - Cancelled for this year

Due to the increase and spike in COVID-19 cases throughout the state, the Iowa Jr. Showcase scheduled for August 2nd at SE Polk HS, has been cancelled for 2020.  All nominations will be given to coaches/scouts that regularly attended our showcase.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and feel for the athletes/coaches that this affects, however the safety of all parties involved is our top priority.  We plan to continue this event in 2021 with a tentative showcase date of August 1, 2021.

6/5/20 - IHSBCA JUNIOR SHOWCASE - Cancelled for this year

First off, thank you for nominating your player as a possible selection for this year's showcase for the TENTATIVE date of August 2nd, 2020 @ Southeast Polk High School.  At this time we are taking nominations for the 2020 Iowa Jr Showcase, however with so much uncertainty, the FINAL DECISION HAS NOT been made to host this event. We have a lot of hurdles to overcome before this event becomes a reality.  College coaches will receive this information even if we do not host, so it is important to nominate.  We will make a final decision the first week in July.

If the showcase proceeds, the Showcase Committee will gather all information and players will be notified via US Mail.  Players will be contacted after July 6, 2020. The committee will narrow the field to a manageable number (we do not know how many we will be able to accommodate at this time) of players from around the state - Juniors and Sophomores - Nominations will NOT be accepted via email or US Mail.


All nominations are STILL due by June 30th, 2020. If you have any questions please contact:

5/31/20 - All-Star Series Announcement -

Due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic issues that we are facing, the IHSBCA 2020 All-Star Series will be cancelled this summer.  This was not an easy decision to make, but to keep all involved safe we feel it is the right decision for this summer's event.  Our plan is to still have the All-Star Coaches pick the four All-Star Teams.  We need high school coaches to send in their senior nominee's by July 10th.  We will send each selected player a certificate towards their selection to one of the four All-Star Teams.  We understand that the 2020 senior class has lost out on graduation, prom, half a baseball season, and other school events.  We feel it is important to honor our seniors this way by continuing to select the All-Star Teams, despite having to cancel the event for this summer.  If you have questions, please contact Lee Toole or Dave Rock.
