The DICK'S Sporting Goods Regional Showcase will allow participants to be measured, photographed and then after a dynamic warmup, compete in the four testing events in a safe, supervised and professional environment:
40-yard Dash (two attempts, fastest time kept)
20-yard or 5-10-5 shuttle (one attempt to left, one to right, fastest time kept)
Vertical Jump (standing jump, two attempts, best jump kept)
Kneeling Power Ball toss (6 lbs. ball toss, two attempts, best toss kept)
Upon completion of the testing, athletes will receive an athletic football rating, which lets them know how they rank amongst not only their peers but also some of the greats of the game, most of whom have participated during the 25 years of Student Sports football events.

Q: What’s the cost of a attending a DICK'S Showcase?
A: The DICK'S Showcase is free of charge.
Q: What is the difference between a DICK'S Showcase and a Regional Camp?
A: There are not any all-position regional camps being run by Student Sports this year. We look forward to offering great athlete opportunities and experiences through The DICK’S Showcase, the Elite 11 QB Regional Camps, the Elite 11 QB Academies and the Final 5 OL Academies. Top performers from The DICK’S Showcases will be eligible for selection to compete at The National Showcase as well in the summer of 2021.
Q: Can a bad performance at a DICK'S Showcase hurt my stock?
A: No, because of the “scratch rule.” Student Sports cares about the athlete first. If an athlete does not like a particular mark, the time or mark may be scratched from the results. Even so, college coaches put more emphasis on how players perform in pads. A disappointing time in the 40 will not lead to colleges dropping a player. At events, running backs and wide receivers have run 4.8′s and linebackers run 5.2′s and still sign with major D‐I programs.
Q: How do I scratch my testing results?
A: Athletes can email firstname.lastname@example.org after the event to have their results scratched. Please be sure to include the athlete’s name, event attended and the results you want to have scratched. Please note that scratching any of the testing results will not yield a Rating.
Q: My school is not listed on the registration page. What should I do?
A: If you do not see your school of the list of high schools after selecting the state, you can request to have your school added to the list.
