Camps, Combines, and Individual Showcases
This is a list of events recommended by Firebirds coaches and players as good opportunities for players interested in playing in college. It is not a complete list of all good events. Be sure to work with your coach to identify events that are right for you.
College Camps and Clinics
All colleges hold camps and clinics. If there is a school you are interested in, we strongly encourage you to attend their events. You can find them by going to each school's softball website. Many are also listed at https://ryzer.com/Events. (upcoming events in Virginia listed on Ryzer)
These events offer the best opportunity for players to establish a relationship with a college coach. Note what kind of camp it is, as "prospect" (and similarly named) camps are better recruiting events than "skills" camps (which can still offer a strong skill-building experience).
