Buckeye Showdown RecruitFest
Player Development and Recruiting Clinic
Our Clinic is designed to provide each player with direct, quality instruction and interaction with college coaches to best prepare athletes to compete at the collegiate level. The morning will consist of skill work and instruction. Offensively, players will receive a combination of tee work, soft toss and machine pitching with college coaches giving instruction and developing skills. Defensively, players will receive a position specific workout simulating game situations. Again, college coaches will be giving instruction and developing skills. In the afternoon, players will play games coached by college coaches. Players will also receive NFCA-determined measurement testing (Agility, 20 yard dash, Overhead Velocity, Batting Measurables, etc).
All players will be listed in a Player Profile Program and Combine Report distributed to college coaches in attendance. The Combine Report will be free to the public and posted on our Web site following the tournament. Players will be able to purchase a two part Digital Profile Package. This includes a video of their individual batting practice with the audio of college coach instruction. Sample Batting Practice Video The Package also includes an Individual Player Profile PDF, which has basic data supplied by the athlete (Graduation Year, Contact Information, GPA, etc), a profile photo taken at the Clinic, as well as all measurement data recorded at the Clinic. Both of these items are ideal for sending to prospective college coaches to give these coaches a more detailed description of who the player is as an athlete. If purchased, this will be emailed to the athlete approximately 3 weeks after the purchase date. See the sample Individual Player Profile PDF attached.
All players participating in the Clinic will also receive a Clinic jersey.
