Tryouts, Jamborees & National Elite Camps

Tryout Schedule

Jamboree and National Elite Camp Schedule

OnDeck Tryouts, Jamborees, and National Elite Camps are a series of tiered events that begin with the identification of players and end with a group of select players being invited to either of the two National Elite Camps. OnDeck Softball Jamborees and National Elite Camps are invitation only, and all participants must be evaluated to be invited. If you are interested in attending one of these events you need to do one or more of the following:

  • Attend a Tryout in your area.
  • Join OnDeck Softball and post your information and a video or email your information and video.
  • Inform OnDeck Softball of your tournament schedule.
  • Secure an OnDeck Measurement (ODM)

Players in all our events will get tested by ODM and receive an Athletic Index. These results will be sent to college coaches, posted on our Blog, and posted on Real Time Athletes (RTA). You will also receive an account with RTA, registration will come via email, where you can post your best results, see where you fall on the National Leaderboard and keep coaches updated on your progress. 

OnDeck Tryouts

These are very instrumental in identifying players for Jamborees and National Elite Camps.  Tryouts are a four hour workout designed to see a player in all aspects of the game, a condensed version of a Jamboree. It is important to know that College Coaches do not attend Tryouts.  Tryouts are just that - tryouts to get into an OnDeck Softball Jamboree and/or National Elite Camp. 

  • Who can attend? Any high school junior or younger not verbally committed or signed, interested in being evaluated by OnDeck and potentially receiving an invitation to an OnDeck Jamboree. 

Over 60% of Jamboree attendees have come from an OnDeck Tryout


OnDeck Softball Jamborees and National Elite Camps are the most important recruiting events for Division 1 colleges and universities across the country.  Coaches from the SEC, PAC-12, Big 10, Big 12, ACC and other conferences attend multiple OnDeck events each year.

OnDeck Jamborees 

All day recruiting events held across the country and attended by many college coaches. Jamborees are a designed to showcase a player’s talent and measure their athletic ability. Jamborees are held regionally, usually before a national tournament, and participates come from across the country. Invitations are sent via email with registration and deadline information included. OnDeck will take around 110 players per Jamboree. Subsequently, proving oneself at a Jamboree can result in an invitation to a National Camp. 

  • Who can attend? An invited player, not verbally committed or signed, high school juniors and younger that has completed the registration process by the given deadline.

OnDeck National Elite Camps

Two day recruiting events, featuring the best of the best and are attended by college coach in great numbers. The West Coast National Elite Camp is held at Mt. SAC in Walnut, CA; and the East Coast National Elite Camp is held at Georgia Gwinnett College just outside Atlanta. This is an unbelievable opportunity to showcase a player’s talent in front of the best coaches from across the country. Invitations are sent via email with registration and deadline information included.

  • Who can attend? An invited player, not verbally committed or signed, high school juniors and younger that has completed the registration process by the given deadline.

While we also identify players through our evaluations at tournaments, the OnDeck Tryout System has proven to be incredibly successful.  These tiered events allow us to fulfill our intent to identify the best players we possibly can and provide a platform for them to showcase their talents.

With any event it is important to make sure you select the one that fits best with your schedule. Please review our refund policy before registering for any OnDeck Event.
