Are YOU Getting the Most Out of Your Recruiting Showcase Appearances?

Choosing the Right Recruiting Showcase

  • Assure that the showcase’s format will allow the athletes to gain the most exposure
  • Research which colleges and coaches will be attending the showcase
  • Is the time and energy being invested have an equal future return?

“Only attend individual camps if a large number of schools are attending the showcase, or if there is a high amount of interest in that particular athlete”

Maximizing Performance at Recruiting Showcases

  • Be sure to get 8 hours of sleep and always stay hydrated
  • Play with passion attempting to do your best at all times
  • Show your ability to work in a team environment

“Coaches look to see if athletes are showing glimpses of a level of skill and ability that they know they are going to be able to coach and get better”

Contact With Coaches

  • Email coaches with some basic information about yourself as well as why they should care about you and the easiest way to scout you
  • When meeting a prospective coach be sure to give a firm handshake and make eye contact
  • Continue with a follow up email to coaches after their evaluation of you

“You want to make coaches say, I am going to make the time to come see you play.  So letting them know where you are going to be gives you the best opportunity to be recruited”

Have a question or are looking for some potential help?

It all starts with an honest NCAA evaluation by an expert who knows what college recruiters are looking for and where you stand, an evaluation of what level of college is right for you.

San Diego’s Summit Performance Group (SPG), a leading provider of conference planning, incentive travel, sports hospitality and event technology solutions announced the launch of PacificXPOSURE. SportsForce has partnered with PacificXPOSURE, which is a premier national lacrosse tournament and Southern California sports destination event, that will take place in North County San Diego at Del Norte High School (Headquarters), Rancho Bernardo High School, and West View High School. The event is scheduled for June 25th-27th 2010.

Doug Wheeler, co-owner and partner of SPG, said that his company decided to launch PacificXPOSURE because of the growth of lacrosse in the area and the need for quality travel tournaments for the sport. The company’s site (http://www.summitpg.com/pacificxposure/index.htm) explains that “the tournament is open to boys and girls and men and women Open Division lacrosse players from across the country and Canada. Attendees will come from as far as California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Canada and the East Coast. Divisions will be separated by age level including elementary and middle school youth U-11, U-13, U-15 groups, high school and club boys and girls teams, and Open Division Men’s and Women’s play (high school graduates and above).”

The tournament will be led by director Dennis Yeatman from Rancho Bernardo. Dennis was recently elected member of the US Lacrosse San Diego Hall of Fame and has been directly involved in the sport of lacrosse for over 40 years. In 1996 he founded Pacific Lacrosse and has been operating girls & boys, youth and High School programs since that time. Both he and his wife were recognized in 2006 as recipients of the A. Norman Webb Award for their volunteering efforts across the county on behalf of the sport of lacrosse.

There will be a PacificXPOSURE Vendor Village at Del Norte High School in 4S Ranch, which is located in Northern San Diego. The Vendor Village will showcase both youth and adult offerings, including lacrosse and sports products, entertainment and food and beverages. Other tournament locations will also offer exhibits and showcases. The event will offer coaches talks and parent/child meetings as well as evening events.  PacificXPOSURE will also offer an exclusive boys and girls lacrosse combine June 25th at Del Norte High School.

Wheeler explained that with today’s tough economy, PacificXPOSURE will offer the chance to attend an exceptional lacrosse tournament and event close to home. Taking place in June in San Diego County, PacificXPOSURE will also prove to be a great destination event for those traveling from out of the area.

PacificXPOSURE is a chance to give back to the community as SPG and the event work with Outdoor Outreach, a non-profit whose mission is to empower at-risk and underprivileged youth through outdoor programming and the Wounded Warrior Project that works to provide aid to and empower wounded soldiers.
