The Shamrock Festival hosts an annual Shamrock Recruiting Showcase on the Friday night before the tournament starts on nine courts at the Roanoke Civic Center. Our Showcase provides an opportunity for college coaches to see as many athletes as possible in one location. The format will consist of individual skill/drill work with an emphasis on team drills and lots of controlled PLAY as facilitated by individual court coaches who will help keep everything on schedule. We want the college coaches to be able to see the players play as much as possible as that is the feedback the coaches have provided to us about this recruiting event. Each college coach in attendance on Friday night receives a free recruiting guide (both electronically and in paper form) with all the individual player information you input online when you register. This recruiting showcase is open to all volleyball players, so your team does not even have to be competing in the Shamrock Festival in order for you to participate in the showcase. There will be two sessions: Session One is from 5:30-7:15pm and Session Two is from 7:45-9:30pm. We will send e-mail invitations to over 300 college coaches but we also encourage you to invite college coaches to attend if you want them to see you at the Showcase and/or throughout the weekend. All college coaches who register with us in advance will receive free Recruiting Guides and free Tournament Programs when they arrive at the Roanoke Civic Center.
