Important Tips

  • Showcases are an integral part of your recruiting plan, that must also include other efforts such as communicating with college coaches, playing tournaments, sending videos, etc.
  • Relax, take your time to find your game. You will play for two days in front of coaches. Do not try to over impress.
  • You are being evaluated on and off the court. Act professional.
  • Pay attention to small details: How you dress; what you say; body language; review your social media pages
  • While on the court, do not worry which or how many coaches are watching you. Just focus on playing your best level that day.
  • Coaches do not have the time and chance to approach each player who they are interested in. Most will want to follow up at a future date. They have all your contact information.
  • Do not be shy to interact, ask questions, initiate contact, be yourself and act friendly. Make coaches remember you. Do not hesitate to approach any coach you are interested in speaking with.
  • Understand the rules on player coach - contacts.
