CCSC National will be held at Maryland Softball Stadium on the campus of the University of Maryland. The 96 participants in the CCSC National event will represent some of the best players across the country who attended a previous CCSC regional event this summer or received an invite. Players will be given the opportunity to work with our on-field staff of college coaches to get valuable feedback on their skills though a written evaluation that will breakdown all of the valued metrics in today’s game. We will also be inviting hundreds of other coaches to the event to observe the two days of action.
Players will be broken down into six teams that will represent the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Midwest, Great Plains, and West Coast. Each team will consist of 3 pitchers, 2 catchers, 3 corner infielders, 3 middle infielders, 4 outfielders, and 1 utility player. All pitchers and position players will rotate through games with all receiving an equal number of innings in the field to ensure a thorough game evaluation.
WHAT WILL BE INCLUDED AS PART OF THE CCSC NATIONAL SHOWCASE
Each team will get a session on field with all of the coaches for evaluation in the Home-to-First, Home-to-Home, Hitting Exit Velocity, Batting Practice, and Extended Infield/Outfield with recorded throwing velocities. Catchers will be measured in throwing velocity as well as pop times. Pitching velocities will be measured during games along with the quality of off-speed pitches.
INDIVIDUAL TEAM TALK
Each team will get to have a more intimate discussion with a college coach to ask questions and discuss what coaches look for in game play and showcasing environments.
Each team will play four games of 6-7 innings with two games on both Saturday and Sunday. All players will receive equal playing time to ensure a proper in-game evaluation.
SEMINAR ON COLLEGE DEVELOPMENT & RECRUITING
On Friday, August 9th after hotel check in and event registration our staff of coaches will present a discussion with parents and players on development at the college level and the college recruiting process. This will be an open forum between parents, players and the coaches that are involved in these processes on a day to day basis.
Hotel rooms will be blocked for purchase at CCSC National’s official hotel.
HOW DOES THIS DIFFER FROM A STANDARD CCSC REGIONAL EVENT?
Much like our CCSC regional events we will put college coaches on the field with high school players who want to learn about today’s game from the actual coaches who are at the college level. However there are some great additions to our National Event that you won’t see in a regional setting:
Live Game Play with present playing schedules
Skill Metrics Evaluation
Intimate small group discussions with coaches about how to engage college coaches in a coaching and showcasing environment
Each player will be provided a CCSC National numbered jersey
Opportunity to compete against players from all over the country
