Pre Covid it was not a waste of time. I don’t think anyone is sure of what is happening now. Like anything else there are good showcases and not so good. The best are Maverik Showtime, Blackcard, Philly Showcase and elite 100. Also a must is the regional tryouts which is not good unless the player making the top 50 player game which will attract all coaches. Under armor tryout good too even if kid does not make the team. Also target schools Direct. Some of these you need an invite and they fill a year in advance. Hope this helps.
