Catching the eye of a college soccer coach or scout is no easy feat, especially when your club soccer or high school team rarely competes in games of high magnitude.  Well, your opportunity to play in front of a wide variety of college coaches and scouts has arrived. Through the Indianapolis College Showcase, over 150 premier club teams will compete in three games under the eyes of all sorts of college programs, ranging from major Division 1 schools all the way down to NAIA.  Therefore, whether your team is full of top prospects or just with hard-working players looking to continue playing soccer in college, this showcase will help your team get exposed to the coaches at the next level.

Anyone from the Midwest knows that the distances between the major cities in the region are often quite great, limiting college visits. Fortunately, the Indianapolis College Showcase takes place in a city right in the middle of most major Midwest towns. Located just three hours from Chicago, four hours from St. Louis, and two hours from Cincinnati, Indianapolis is in a center of all these major pockets of population. Not only does this prime location make travelling easier for fans, but it also enables coaches from all over the Midwest to make easy trips as well.

Another way that the Indianapolis College Showcase makes travelling a breeze is that the entire tournament is held on one single site complex of 21 pristine fields.  Your team won’t have to worry about travelling across the city and searching for where the next match is being held. All the games are played at one location, meaning that all the scouts and coaches will be on hand, and that the entire showcase holds a very intimate environment. This also helps the coaches get right up close to the action, meaning that you will have every opportunity to impress at this event. Additionally, the showcase complex is roughly 15 minutes away from downtown Indianapolis, meaning that family members and players can have time to explore the city and make a wonderful weekend trip part of the travel plans.

The Indianapolis College Showcase is comprised of elite premier high school aged club teams, with competitions ranging from the levels of U15 to U18.  There will be two separate weekends for the boys and girls.  The girls showcase will be from November 8-10 while the boys showcase will be November 15-18.  For any developing soccer player from the Midwest looking to play college, this event is a must-attend!

If you are a high school aged soccer player who is seriously considering playing the sport in college, you absolutely have to get noticed by college coaches in order to have that opportunity. For three years, the Indianapolis College Showcase has been giving players this chance. Be sure to attend this showcase in order to put your best foot forward and get spotted by one of the many Midwest college coaches that will be in attendance. Best of luck for your team at this event and for the rest of your soccer playing days!
