Boys California Live ‘23 provides a platform for high school student-athletes to demonstrate their talent in front of NCAA Men’s basketball coaches in a scholastic setting with their high school teams. For the first time ever, CIF programs, both boys and girls, will be able to participate in an event sanctioned and hosted in California. During the past four years, many of the CIF’s top programs have traveled to Arizona for Section 7, an event sanctioned through the Arizona Basketball Coaches Association (ABCA). This year Section 7 will take place June 23-25 during the second June Scholastic Live Period at State Farm Arena in Glendale, Ariz.
Girls California Live ‘23, hosted by the Bay Area Coaches Association, will be held June 15-17, 2023 at the Roebbelen Center in Roseville.
