Do I need to check in?
- Yes. You must check in before the event starts. At Registration you will receive a packet with your jersey, final team and position assignments. Your team assignment dictates your schedule for the entire day.
Can I have my parent or coach check me in?
- No. We take a picture of each player for the individual Player Profile PDFs, regardless if you intend to purchase one or not. Therefore, you must check in yourself.
What time does registration open on the day of the clinic?
- Registration will open 30 minutes before the beginning of the clinic.
Do I need to be warmed up before the clinic starts?
- Yes, all players should be warmed up before the player meeting. Teams will be assigned warm up fields. Find your teammates for the day and begin to warm up. We will have balls available for throwing and hitting warm ups.
What should I wear to the clinic?
- You should wear what you would normally wear to play in a game. It may be your uniform but does not have to be. You will be provided with a jersey and bib that you must wear for the duration of the clinic.
I need to drop out of the clinic because of a change of plans, injury, family emergency, etc. Can I get a refund?
- If the entire Clinic is cancelled due to rain or some other unforeseen event, we will issue you a refund by check, based on the following formula. $50.00 of your paid registration fee will be non-refundable, due to pre-Clinic incurred expenses. The non-refundable amount may increase at the sole discretion of Fastpitch Showdowns, depending upon incurred costs for that Clinic.
- If you withdraw from the Clinic for any reason prior to 14 days before the Clinic date, your registration fee will be refunded minus a $50.00 administration fee.
- If you withdraw from the Clinic for any reason less than 14 days before the Clinic date your registration fees will be totally nonrefundable. Registration may be transferable. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to transfer your registration.
- Method of refund depends on when payment and refund request are made. Refunds will be issued no later than August 15th.
When I signed up my primary position was not available. Can I switch positions or play multiple positions on site?
- No. Registration is limited by position to guarantee players the most quality individualized attention from the college coaches. The position you registered for will be the position you play at the clinic. If the clinic does not sell out, we may rotate players to make sure everyone gets equal time at the position they registered for.
I am a pitcher. Do I need to bring a catcher?
- No. Players sign up for the clinic as catchers and they will catch the pitchers.
Recruiting/Digital Player Profile Package
How will the coaches know who I am?

When will my NFCA¬determined skills measurement testing results be available?
