    My daughter is 15, is she eligible to attend your showcase? She will compete in the u16 age group in the 2012-2013 club season.

    • michael says:

      Yes, Lori, she may participate. The intent is for the event to be open to girls PLAYING 16′s and above, irrespective of their birthday. I’ll clarify the verbiage.

    We are a little new to this, so I apologize if this is something that should be understood. You mentioned that there were two waves. When we signed up my daughter, there was no method to indicate which wave we were signing up for – or do the girls particapte in both waves?

    Thanks

      Great question. You participate in either the a.m. or p.m. wave, but not both. Once registered you will be contacted via email and asked your preference.

        Hi. I see you mentioned we an email would be sent out about participant times. I registered my daughter on Sept 1st and haven’t received an email as of yet. I wasn’t sure when those would go out. I was just curious.

        Thanks for your help.

    Hello,
    I am 17 and will be playing 18′s this coming season, and I was just wondering if there is away way I could do both waves. I’m just not sure if college coaches would attend more in the morning than afternoon wave. I am very much wanting to get recognized and was wondering if you could give me a heads up on which wave would be better for me before i make my decision. I’m coming from houston, TX and I am looking to attend any college.
    Thank you,
    Vanessa Salinas

      Hi Vanessa,

      Great question–thanks for asking.

      Unfortunately we can’t let athletes participate in multiple sessions, as that would preclude others from participating, since we are virtually certain to sell out. Plus…. you will find the combine to be a pretty rigorous workout. It’d be pretty difficult to show your best stuff in that second wave, as you will be exhausted.

      Because the Showcase has become so popular, each year we discuss adding a third wave, and each year we decide against doing so, as the one year we did it, many coaches left early in the third wave and those girls were not seen to the same extent as those who were in the first two waves.

      My advice would be to request the wave that makes the most sense from a travel and a rest perspective–to make sure you’re as fresh as you can be. If you’re coming in from Texas on Friday night, you might want to play in the a.m. Conversely, if you’re coming from California–as several registrants are–you might want to defer to the afternoon, since our 9 a.m. start time is 6 a.m. on the Pacific Coast.

      Our experience is that both a.m. and p.m. waves are seen to equal degrees. While there will be some coaches who arrive after the combine has started in the morning, there will also be coaches who depart in the afternoon before it’s done. But we feed them well at lunch and most are there for the entire day.

      Best of luck to you!

      Michael

    Hello, I was wondering when we should be receiving our confirmation email to be able to select which wave my daughter is interested in? I registered her on Sept 30 and have already received the email with the waiver attachment but that email said we would be receiving another email to respond to to select the wave preference.

    Thank you.

    My daughter has been playing since she was 5 on a 12 and under team. She is now 11 and plays on a 14s team. When can she start attending showcases. She plays year round,school,club and beach already.

    • michael says:

      Hi Rebecca,

      Thanks for your question. Recruiting combines differ, but most want the athlete to be old enough to be of recruitable age. At the Showcase, we restrict attendees to those playing 16′s and up. Certainly we wouldn’t want to turn away a high school girl with legitimate aspirations to play in college for a middle schooler who is too young to be seriously recruited but wants the experience of a combine.

      Best of luck to your daughter!

      Michael

    Hi Michael

    Will this be the only showcase for the class of 2013?

    My daughter is interested, but the date is a bad time for us.

    Thanks Michele

    • michael says:

      This is the only Showcase that WE offer, Michelle, but there are other recruiting combines out there. Check prepvolleyball.com for about a half dozen announcements.

      Best of Luck,

      Michael
