Every year, young athletes from around the country participate in sports camps, combines, tournaments and showcases to sharpen their skills and gain exposure. Coaches greatly value the opportunity to see the best athletes compete. Attending these events is important in your recruiting process.
- Camps: At the middle school and early high school level, camps are focused on fundamentals and building skills under the instruction of a good coach. As the student-athlete advances, they can attend college camps, which give them a chance to play in front of college coaches who might recruit them.
- Combines: These events are held to test student-athletes’ athleticism. They involve specific conditioning drills that assess speed, strength and overall skills.
- Showcases: These events usually include both sport-specific drills and actual competitions.
- Tournaments: Tournaments give college coaches a chance to see top recruits compete against each other.

How do I get noticed at a camp?
Performing well at a camp or combine isn’t an automatic guarantee that you will be recruited. There are certainly instances of unknown student-athletes wowing coaches at a camp and getting an offer shortly after, but coaches are much more holistic when evaluating potential recruits. A camp superstar with poor academics and a bad attitude is not likely to make it to the college level.
We will help you to make sure your studies are first by teaching you time management. Without the grades it does not matter how good of an athlete you are.
Give it everything you’ve got while you’re playing, but be aware that coaches are evaluating much more than your athletic abilities. Every moment you’re at a camp or combine is fair game for assessment. That means your attitude when you’re off the ball, your demeanor when grabbing water or picking up equipment, and the way you talk to other potential recruits. Coaches evaluate your body language and we will help you to recognize and correct any bad attitude you might be projecting.
The critical last step: following up
Your work doesn’t end after you return home from a camp or combine. Following up with a coach after you attend their university camp or receive new combine numbers is key to staying on their radar and building your relationship. We will assist you in staying in contact with the right coaches! We will make sure they have access to your films and that you stay on their radar.
