Showball has once again reshaped the landscape of the recruiting process. For the first time, we are offering top student athletes the unique opportunity to be instructed and seen by 30 elite academic head coaches.
Since most head coaches rarely attend showcase camps, the Showball Head Coach Academic Camp is a rare and unique opportunity to showcase your talents to the ultimate decision makers and position yourself to play at a top academic program.
The Showball Difference
- We level the playing field and guarantee that every pitcher and every position player will be seen by ALL coaches during games. At our competitors’ events, pitchers only throw in 2 of the 4 games, thus ensuring that at least half of the coaches in attendance do not get to see them pitch.
- Coaches are assigned to one of the two fields at our events, thus guaranteeing that every coach sees every camper during their games. Our competitors allow coaches to roam around amongst the 4 fields and watch whomever they want to see play. Ultimately, there is no guarantee that you’ll be seen by even half of the listed coaches.
- We provide top student athletes with a unique opportunity be seen by the most elite DI, DII and DIII academic programs in the United States.
The following 30 Head Coaches have committed to the Showball Academic Showcase Camp, August 8-9, 2017. Barring the college coaches being terminated from their programs, accepting positions at other schools or last second family emergencies, we guarantee their attendance!
