About Us

Chris Hansen is a member of the McDonald's All-American Selection Committee and the Naismith Trophy Player of the Year panel. He is the managing editor of Prospects Nation and he scouts for the JumpOffPlus.com international scouting service in addition to owning and operating the ELITEisEARNED Report.

As the director of the Check Me Out Showcases and the ELITE is EARNED tournaments, the quality of competition and exposure his team provides is unmatched. The showcase camps consistently draw talent from across the country from highly regarded prospects to the under the radar player looking to make her mark. The EIE certified events have burst on to the scene in the last two years, providing a big stage for teams. The emphasis on the quality of the teams and matchups more than the number of teams has led to every EIE tournament seeing more college scouts in attendance than club teams registered. This recipe gives players a great chance to be seen instead of lost in a huge event.

Hansen started coaching on the girls side in 1998 and has since been involved as a coach, reporter, scout and trainer. He was the national director of scouting for ESPN HoopGurlz from 2005 to 2012. His work has been featured on FoxSports, Scout and ESPN and it has been awarded for excellence.
