How to Find the Right Men's Soccer Tournaments, Camps and Showcases

 

A crucial part of the recruiting process involves athletes getting in front of college coaches and showing off their skill set. The preferred way for D1 coaches to evaluate top recruits is to see them compete in club tournaments, though ID camps and clinics are also used for scouting new talent. The benefit of attending these events is getting exposure to college coaches, as well as gaining experience competing against other elite athletes. However, to gain access to these events, athletes need to play on club teams and should get started at an early age to get club experience.

College men’s soccer tournaments and showcases

For D1 programs and top schools at other division levels, club tournaments and showcases are where coaches do most of their recruiting. There is a wide variation in levels across clubs, and the same is true for club tournaments—that’s why athletes will want to gain a roster spot on an elite club in order to play in tournaments that attract the most college coaches. For coaches, this is an efficient way to recruit, since they get to see many top-level athletes in one place playing against strong competition. US Youth Soccer and US Club Soccer both offer a lengthy list of tournaments held throughout the year, while GotSoccer provides a ranking of the best club tournaments. Check out some of the biggest club soccer tournaments in the country:

College men’s soccer camps and clinics

Elite college soccer camps and clinics run by club organizations (like US Club Soccer’s exclusive id2 Camp, which finds players through an intense national scouting and recommendation process) are generally invitation only and restricted to club members. Their focus is to offer athletes an opportunity to play at a very high level and let coaches evaluate top talent. In general, an ID camp brings top recruits in and has them stay overnight for three to four days, providing athletes with skills development, competition and evaluation. An ID clinic is a shortened version of a camp, usually lasting one or two days. If a college soccer camp or clinic is hosted by an NCAA institution (on campus), the camp might have a lot of talented players but must allow anyone to attend regardless of ability level.

For athletes who are seriously interested in attending an elite ID camp or clinic, the first step is to get a recommendation from their coach. College soccer camps and clinics are run by college men’s soccer coaches and offer high-quality soccer skills instruction. Attending a soccer camp or clinic also lets athletes check out the school’s campus and athletic facilities, as well as gain some familiarity with the coaching staff and program.
