Glen Ellyn, IL
On the 10th of July, OnDeck Softball will be bringing their thrid event into the Midwest when they run the 2nd annual Chicago Jamboree in Glen Ellyn, IL. This event will be held in conjunction with the Beverly Bandits’ and Illinois Chill’s DeMarini Invitational, one of the Midwest’s finest recruiting showcases. For this Jamboree, we will be inviting 95 Midwest players to work-out and play at Akerman Park, and we anticipate seeing a large number of Division 1 college coaches in attendance. This will be an invitation-only event. Last year's inaugural event was a smash hit as nearly 70 Division 1 college coaches descended on Akerman Park to watch the 75 players in attendance. This year should be even better!
If you are interested in participating in this Chicago Jamboree, please don’t hesitate to contact Derek & Joann Allister at OnDeck Softball. At that point, the Allisters will begin the evaluation process. The event will be limited to those players in the summer before their 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade years.
It is our belief that the Chicago Jamboree will continure to become one of the most important days on the recruiting calendars of all Midwest Division 1 and Division II schools. This Jamboree will also certainly become a launching pad for invitations to the prestigious National Elite Futures Camps that are held each year in October and November in Southern California and the South. We hope you will join us in Chicago this summer.
