Under the Girls Philly Showcase's exciting and unique format, each participant is placed on a team for the day and coached by a college coach. The players all play three games in front of the assembled college coaches in the morning. At the conclusion of the morning session, there is a brief break and the Girls Philly Showcase concludes with an elite all-star game. Additionally, all games at the Philly Girls Showcase are professionally filmed in high definition, and a complete video package is available for all participants.
Girls Philly Showcase players have the opportunity to play for a college coach for two team practices and three games in front of college coaches.
Players also participate in skills clinics led by Division I coaches.
