Cali vs Canada Showdown goes Saturday March 18th, 2017

(Feb 6, 2017) We are extremely disappointed to announce the relocation of the VanCity High School Basketball Showcase from Canada to the United States, due to the uncertainties surrounding international travel to and from the USA. The VanCity Showcase is not willing to subject Prolific Prep’s international student-athletes to the risks associated with the Trump Administration travel bans and changing US foreign policy.

Prolific Prep’s Director of Operations Phillipe Doherty:
“As a program with players from 8 different countries and with the uncertainties of our new and current administration in Washington DC as it pertains to foreign policy, we feel it is prudent to evaluate and wait for some of these new policies to either be upheld or dissolved by the higher courts in our country, and make decisions after these policies are entrenched in stone.  At this current moment we do not want to subject our kids to uncertainties and constantly changing foreign policies, so we are going to wait until we get more clarity on the new proposed legislations by this current administration on Capital Hill.”

The highly anticipated matchup between Prolific Prep and Orangeville Prep will be renamed the Cali vs Canada Showdown and will be held at Capital Christian School in Sacramento, California, USA on Saturday March 18th, 2017 (7:00 PM PDT/10PM EDT).
