The 4th annual Battle at the Rock showcase will make it's return for the 2021-2022 high school season this December. The official dates for this year's event has been set for December 2-4th and the location will be back in Rock Hill, South Carolina at the Rock Hill Sports Center.
The Battle at the Rock showcase was one of the few events during the 2020-2021 high school season that did not cancel due to the coronavirus pandemic that started in early 2020. The field last season was great and featured a few of the nation's top prospects.
The 2021 field has been set and is definitely looking better than last season's field of teams.

An elite girls matchup between Milaysia Fulwiley and Talaysia Cooper is also expected the same weekend.
Top prospects like 2023 F Baye Fall, 2022 SG Shaedon Sharpe, 2023 F Omaha Biliew, 2022 F Julian Phillips, 2024 F Cam Scott, 2023 F Wesley Tubbs III, 2023 G Mikey Williams, 2022 SG M.J.
