2016 TDS Unsigned Showcases Redesigned

2016 TDS Unsigned Showcases Redesigned

February 22, 2016

Four years ago, we realized that most club and high school soccer players were being missed by the "traditional" recruitment model. Furthermore, college programs across the country told us they were searching for new avenues to network with, and identify, players. This inspired us to start our TDS Combine Series; to connect those who aspire to play at the next level, with those collegiate programs searching for talent. While the combines were a great success, we felt they were not living up to their potential. Thus, we decided to start over...

We asked for, and have listened to, feedback from the events. We've made numerous changes. Players asked for more coaches, parents asked for more information and a more in-depth seminar, and coaches asked for unsigned players that are truly interested in their programs. The result of these changes is our new TDS Unsigned Showcases, and here is how we plan on being better...

  • Only 150 unsigned players can attend each event to ensure an intimate environment
  • College coaches will rotate from group to group, allowing for maximum exposure to all in attendance
  • College coaches from various regions will attend each location
  • Every player will receive a College Needs List for the colleges in attendance
  • More coaches at each event - with our goal being over 30 scheduled at each event
  • TDS staff in attendance to take notes on every player for rankings (Top 150s & Regional) and ratings (stars)
  • In-depth recruiting seminar - including a recruiting guide and Q&A with college coaches
  • TDS Skills Challenge testing with national leaderboard on TDS
  • Bigger and better Best XI articles from each event
