RecruitLook Hoops Junior Circuit

A highly competitive boys basketball circuit for 12u-14u teams.

2022 Junior Circuit Information

2022 RecruitLook Hoops Junior Circuit Information

We hosted 1,000+ boys basketball teams in 2021 and over 1,000 college coaches (in-person & on the live streams) throughout the spring and summer for our High School Boys Circuit. And now we are launching the RecruitLook Hoops Juniors platform to find out who is NEXT UP.

The Circuit is open to any team to play in our Open Runs; however, we have a select group that is in our premier division that gets all the benefits of committing to the circuit. Teams will compete in a competitive League and move up and down the standings based on their wins and losses. All roads lead to The Finale where our bracket finale will take place. Teams will be seeded based on their League standings. Winner take all!

Top players from the League will be invited to participate in the Larry Hughes Elite Junior Camp.

Every event that we host prior to the Bracket Finale in Kansas City will be considered a League Session.

Teams are required to play in at least 1 event to be considered for the League Finale.

Standings will be based on your best 1 event record + our Power Rankings to determine the Bracket Finale seeding. If a team plays 2 events and goes 4-0 in 1 and 2-2 in the other, we will label them as 4-0. Additionally, we look at the 6 wins and 2 losses to create a Power Ranking. The competition that you win and/or lose against does matter in how teams will be seeded for the bracket finale. Every game matters!

Each event is open to 12u-14u teams.

Prices are per event. Registration and payment can be made on each event page. Teams will not be placed on the schedule until they are registered and paid for.

Each Event Will Go As Follows:

1.) Each team will play 3-4 games minimum at the designated showcase location.

2.) Event formats are still being finalized.

3.) We accommodate schedule requests in the order registration and fees are paid.

4.) The Bracket Finale will be in Kansas City. The Bracket will take place over 3 or 4 days depending on location and number of teams.

We want to make this a great experience for everyone involved. We want you to be proud of the Circuit that you are in. We know that the best advertising and marketing is word-of-mouth, and we’ll strive to make a lasting impression on you.

Our team has been running events for decades, and we know that attention to detail, big or small, is key when running an event. We’ll make sure that your time on the RecruitLook Hoops League is enjoyable.

Every team must visit each individual tournament page and register each time for the tournament through the links provided.

ALL RecruitLook Hoops Events will be Live Streamed through BallerTV for College Coaches and Fans to enjoy!

RecruitLook Hoops' Larry Hughes Elite Youth Camp

RecruitLook Hoops was proud to present the Larry Hughes Elite Camp in St. Louis. This was an invite-only camp that brought in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event featured a mixture of 60 national recruits in 2022, 2023, and 2024 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provided athletes an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions, the camp focused on teaching valuable lessons off the court.

This camp featured wearable technology that tracked everything that the athletes did on the court. Campers wear the device, and the Kinexon platform takes over from there — providing valuable data that will give college coaches a better idea of what athletes can do on the court.
