On your athlete profile, it is important to list the future events that you are attending so that a coach knows where they can see you play. It is also important to list the events that you attended in the past. This can give coaches an idea of your level of commitment to your sport. The video below will show you how to add events to your profile.
Recruiting showcases & tournaments are a major part of your college search and recruiting process.
What is important to understand, however, is that they are just a piece of your process. When you think about a recruiting event, you should think of the event as an opportunity to be seen by college coaches who already know about you, but want to see you play live.
They know about you because you sent them a quick message introducing yourself and inviting them to view your profile and video. You are on their radar. Showcases and tournaments give them insight about the type of player you are.
One of our team members, Chris, recently held a great webinar discussing the importance of different types of recruiting events and how to balance your time at all of them. As a former Division 1 athlete, coach, and Insights Analyst, he had some great advice to offer! Check out a recap of the webinar below.
