The countdown has officially started for GSI Sports and the Sporting Club Network in preparation for the 2017 SHOWCASE KC.
The showcase will take place November 17-19 and will be played throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan area at three world class turf facilities, the Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex, Swope Soccer Village, and the new Wyandotte County Youth Soccer Complex.
SHOWCASE KC is an annual invitational showcase for young men and women soccer players U-15 through U-19, who want to play at the college level. All who participate will demonstrate their talents and abilities to men’s and women’s college coaches from across the Midwest and beyond. More than 600 collegiate coaches from Divisions I, II, III, NAIA, and NJCCA are invited to scout players and the expected attendance for the weekend is 15,000-20,000 attendees.
The SHOWCASE KC COMBINE will take place on Friday evening of the event and will be a chance for players to gain additional exposure in front of the college staff. A warm-up, training drills, small-sided games, full sided games, and instruction will be given by the college coaches in a personal setting.
Unique educational opportunities for parents and players attending the SHOWCASE KC will be available on Saturday and Sunday at the Wyandotte Fields. The COLLEGE PATHWAY EDUCATION PANEL will be a chance to hear about a first-hand experience of the college recruitment process from a current Sporting Kansas City player.
As part of SHOWCASE KC’s commitment to enhance and build the college placement program, Sporting Kansas City’s partner, iSoccerPath, will guide athletes and parents through the identification process. In addition, the Sporting Kansas City Technical Staff will lead an on-field training session and Q&A.
This event is already regarded as one of the finest collegiate showcase tournaments in the Midwest, and GSI Sports and the Sporting Club Network are excited to continue to build on this amazing event for years to come.
