Prospect Select Presents the 2021 Black Bear Classic!

  The Black Bear Classic, which is a 4 game guaranteed event in Greenville, South Carolina, has emerged as one of the best events on the East Coast since its creation in 2014 with 25 teams.  The event was moved from Asheville, NC to Greenville, SC  in 2015, due to the increase in popularity and the ability to secure more potential venues.  Yearly the Black Bear has brought a large amount of high level travel teams, their families, and coaches/scouts to Greenville, SC. In the last few years, Black Bear featured between 200-250 teams and had 100+ coaches/scouts in attendance.  In 2021, we expect both of those numbers to grow with high level teams from the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest.  

      Utilizing FlightScope to capture in-game data along with GameKast live streaming of all games, teams will have an opportunity to showcase their talent for what we expect to be a significant amount of collegiate and professional scouts between June 15th-19th, 2021.  

     “We are very thankful for all of the support the Black Bear Classic has gotten over the years from high level travel teams.  We feel like it has turned into one of the best events in the country, and take a lot of pride in it.  The town of Greenville, SC does an excellent job playing host to us each year”, says Prospect Select Vice President, Jeremy Plexico.  

     The highest level of competition, state of the art technology and a significant scouting presence, partnered with the best of venues, all come together to make the Black Bear Classic a premier event.  Venues such as Clemson University, North Greenville University, Newberry, Lander, USC Upstate, Wofford College, Furman University, Anderson University, Presbyterian College, Gardner Webb, Spartanburg Methodist College and South Wesleyan.  Utilizing such venues for this event, allows the players a chance to play games at a variety of high level colleges at different levels.  This helps the players and families get a better idea of what their best fit might be at the collegiate level.  

     As noted above, we are honored to host this event in the beautiful city of Greenville, SC.  Greenville, South Carolina has people talking and they’re saying a lot of nice things. Travel + Leisure called Greenville a “Top Place to Travel in 2018 (in the World).” Men’s Journal listed Greenville among its “Top 18 Coolest Towns in America.” Why the accolades?  Greenville offers visitors a unique blend of traditional Southern charm and contemporary cool you won’t find anywhere else. Its award-winning, tree-lined Main Street buzzes with people, locally owned boutiques and 110+ inventive restaurants. Not to mention a ridiculously picturesque 32-acre park situated in the heart of downtown, with a breathtaking waterfall and a one-of-a-kind floating pedestrian bridge.  Courtesy of Visitgreenvillesc.com.
