Commonly asked recruiting camp questions:

 

1) If I purchase it, what is on the skills video?

The mini- skills video contains the actual, unedited performance of the participant at certain stations during the showcase. All participants are filmed at a hitting station and a defensive station. Catchers are shown throwing to second (5 throws) , Infielders are shown fielding ground balls (5 reps), Outfields are shown catching flyballs (5 reps)  and pitchers are shown throwing fastball, changeup and their favorite pitch (7 pitches total).The mini skills video is a great tool for players to market themselves to college coaches as it is seen as an under pressure performance much like live game footage.   

 

2)  Will I received instruction at this recruiting event?

No. This is a showcase event only where college coaches watch athletes perform stations and evaluate their skills. College coaches can then watch student –athletes latter during the tournament games for further evaluation.
