This Jamboree is held in conjunction with the Beverly Bandits and Illinois Chill DeMarini Invitational. Players participate in an extensive offensive and defensive workout, to show every aspect of their game.

The first Chicago Jamboree featured a litany of players who are making major contributions at schools all over the country. WCWS star Meghan King (P Florida State), Marissa Panko (SS Northwestern), and Brooke Wyderski (SS Wisconsin) all were part of the competition that first day. They were joined by Miranda Elish (P Oregon), Shannon Rhodes (OF Oregon), Katelyn Alderink (2B Texas A&M), and Alex Martens (2B Kentucky) and a host of others who all are making major contributions at their schools. Others have followed – Alexis Holloway (P Notre Dame), Lauren Rice (P Missouri), and Kayla Konwent (C Wisconsin) – and there is no doubt that those attending in 2023 will follow in their footsteps.
What to Wear & Bring – Practice gear and cleats. Players will receive a numbered tank top (color will correspond to Grad Year). Bring your glove, bat and necessary equipment.
Water & Snacks – Please bring water, snacks and lunch, it will not be provided. Be ready to stay hydrated and energized!
