Volleyball showcases are focused on providing you with exposure. They allow you to perform in front of dozens of coaches and make connections with college programs. This experience can be pivotal during your volleyball recruiting process.
During a volleyball showcase, you will run through drills designed to highlight individual and positional skills. You will also engage in gameplay to provide college coaches an opportunity to evaluate talent. A typically showcase schedule looks like this:
After the showcase, athletes are usually given an evaluation, either digitally or a paper copy. You will also have the option to purchase video footage from the gameplay portion of the showcase, which can be used to create a highlight video.
Many clubs have started hosting recruiting showcases that they invite college coaches (typically from the surrounding area) to attend. College coaches might also stop by to watch a club team practice, especially if that coach has a good relationship with the club coach. These events are typically less about the coaches discovering new talent and more about evaluating athletes who are already on their list.
Athletes must pick a club team that supports their recruiting goals, and this is a great case for why that’s so important. Dozens of coaches might be invited to a club’s recruiting camp or practices, but if none of those coaches are from schools an athlete is interested in, then these recruiting camps won’t be of much help.
Volleyball showcases range in cost from $200-$500. Athletes will have the choice of registering for either the morning, afternoon or both sessions. Registering for one session will save you money, but attending both sessions will allow you to maximize your time in front of the college coaches.
If you are serious about playing volleyball in college, then volleyball showcases are worth it. Showcases allow you to perform in front of multiple college coaches and division levels, giving you the chance to get your name on a coach’s recruiting list.
