WHAT SETS US APART
LIMITED SPACE AND PERSONAL EVALUATION
We limit the space in our showcases to ensure it remains an intimate experience for the players. Our showcase is held on one field, and each coach is on the field (not in the stands) for every game and drill. This is not a competitive camp; each game is controlled so every player gets a chance to showcase their skills and be seen by the college coaches in attendance.
Every player is evaluated by every coach during the weekend. These scores are averaged by us after the showcase and sent to the player via email. They are presented on a scale of 1-5, indicating the collegiate level the player performed at during the showcase. The evaluations also include throwing/pitching velocity, catcher pop times, and base running times.
VIDEO ANALYSIS AND FREE SEMINAR
We film you, and one of our college coaches will review this video with you and analyze your swing or pitch, breaking down your mechanics and giving you tips on how to improve. We will provide you with a link to this video (including the dialogue with coach) where you can download it to your device. This link will be provided the week following the camp. Video analysis is an additional fee. Separate charge for pitching and hitting.
The evening before the showcase, we have early check-in and a seminar by Elite Softball Showcases staff and college coaches. While not mandatory, this is a great learning experience for players and parents alike, as we go over getting recruited, playing at the collegiate level, how grants and loans work, and answering any questions.
COLLEGE ROUTINES, SKILLS, AND DRILLS
Saturday and Sunday morning, our coaches put the players through warm-ups ensuring they are loose and ready to play. This gives players an idea of what being on a college ball team is like.
Included with the evaluation results is the data from our skills and drills, including arm strength and throwing velocity from infield and outfield, catchers pop times, home to first and home to home running times, as well as working on technique in various areas of fielding. We also do infield/outfield drills and the coaches work with the players to improve footwork and throwing ability in an effort to improve skills.
What People are Saying
“I have been working Elite Softball Showcases camps for years now. It’s hard to find a camp where every college coach gets to work with and see every athlete in the camp. Every time I work one of their camps, we get 2 or 3 participants to come to Friends University in Wichita, KS. I have nothing but great things to say about Elite Softball Showcases camps and encourage everyone to attend!”
Coach Tony Segovia, Mcpherson University
“What a great camp, filled with great staff and coaches. It was amazing to see everyone go out of their way to make my 8th grade daughter Emily Melvin feel relaxed and calm. It was also great to see all the girls cheering for each other. 10 out of 10; would use Elite Softball Showcases again.”
Billy Melvin, Parent of player
“Great camp. We’ve attended two of the Elite Softball Showcases camps and both were great. Lots of one on one with the coaches. Highly recommended.”
Parent of player
“My daughter Kearstin attended the one in Vegas. If your daughter hasn’t been to one you must take her! It was great and definitely exceeded our expectations! As a matter of fact we will be going again in January!”
Stephanie Larson, Parent of Player
“This was my daughters favorite camp by far! She has done several camps and this one was much smaller. There was a lot more one on one with players and coaches. There were plenty of coaches there and my daughter had a lot of fun!”
Parent of Player
“I have always enjoyed working with the Elite Showcases events. I have found players of all levels in attendance. The event allows all coaches to evaluate and work with all the athletes participating in the showcase. In January I found an athlete at the Elite Softball Showcase that will be attending Tyler Junior College this fall. It is not only a greatopportunity for the young women participating to learn and showcase their talents, but also very beneficial for the coaches to network as well. You cannot go wrong attending an Elite Softball Showcases event!”
