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:
Players in all our events will get tested by ODM, including the Zepp Metrics and receive an Athletic Index. These results will be sent to college coaches, posted on our Blog, and posted on FastPitch Recruits (FPR). You will also receive an account with FPR, 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
