National Volleyball Showcase!

Hi Players and Parents,

This year the National Volleyball Showcase(NVS) will be in Phoenix for the Volleyball Festival Event.  This is the #1 showcase in the country.  This is a great place to get EXPOSURE before the tournament. National tournaments are difficult because there are so many games going on at once(i.e., 100 games per hour). At our event, we have smaller set of courts and the coaches are able to watch ALL the athletes in the showcase.  Our National events average 100 or more coaches. We just completed our Las Vegas showcase and had nearly 200 college coaches in attendance.
DETAILS -Phoenix Showcase (before Volleyball Festival tournament)
WHEN: June 25, 2014
WHERE: Phoenix, AZ (Convention Center)
WHO: 2014-2017 (BOTH UNSIGNED SENIORS and UNDERCLASSMEN)
TIME: 1pm – Last year we sold out.
WHY SEND YOUR KIDS
– EXPOSURE (Get on radar before tournament).
– COST EFFECTIVE (We’ve cut our price to $50 – HUGE discount to normal pricing )
– COMPETE against regions best players
– Preferred Showcase of 4 year colleges/universities — See quotes below
– Attending our showcase, you get – “Inside Recruiting Booklet” and much more
– Larger facility
– Biokats/National Volleyball Showcase(NVS) is NCAA certified organization

Our Las Vegas sold out and was a huge hit with college coaches (4th year in a row). Our Colorado and Los Angeles event also sold out.
Here’s what coaches are saying
“Your Las Vegas event was great for us. I am more than pleased that you are holding your event at more locations around the national qualifiers. Put me on the list. “…4 year college coach

“We continue to attend your volleyball showcase. Last year we recruited 5 players for our team. Great event, great job. We will be back” Division 1 coach

 

The showcase is a skill assessment of the volleyball player’s athletic skills. We have college coaches coming from the across the region/country to recruit players. Even at tournaments, it difficult to be seen because of so many teams and matches.

What: Have players go through workouts and play games in front of college scouts.
Who: Freshman – Seniors
We break the players up on to different courts. We control the numbers per session
Cost: $50 per player (This is reduced rate for everyone)
Why do you have Freshman? Great question. The nations top programs have already started looking at Freshman prospects. They have asked that we include them.

Information/Registration
http://www.nationalvolleyballshowcase.com

Be sure to have your players get registered soon. Our camp filled up last year. So get registered early.

Looking forward to seeing you at our 2014 events.  (Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver). Yes. We will be at several qualifiers so keep an eye out.

 

Sincerely,

Jerry Howard

Scouting @ Festival!

Coach,

I hope and pray this email finds you and your team doing very well!  As a former SEC college athlete, former member of a Southeastern Conference recruiting staff, high school coach and as a parent to a club volleyball girl, I understand why you do what you do for these kids.  THANK YOU for ALL you do to help these young athletes develop.  I, along with my NSR team take off our hats and give you honor for your dedication and commitment to young people.  Good luck and best wishes in Phoenix.  

National Scouting Report is a proud partner with the Festival.  We serve as the ONE and ONLY recruiting and scouting source for this event.  Me and my team of NSR scouts will be at the Festival scouting and evaluating your athletes and then providing information to EVERY collegiate volleyball program in the country.  We are also INVITING you and you team and their families to attend one of the FREE NCAA / NAIA Recruiting Seminars that will be provided to you and you team.  The latest NCAA rules changes will be addressed, myths in recruiting, the TRUTH about the recruiting process, the new academic requirements and many other things will be provided to your athletes and their families!!   These FREE seminars will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 1 pm, 3pm, and 5 pm in a specially designated room at the event..  Please let me know via a quick RSVP  as to the time that you and your team may be able to attend so we can be prepared.

As a published author of recruiting articles, like the one Volleyball Magazine, I will be prepared to share a lot of information during the 45 minutes sessions.  I also want to invite you to send your athletes to www.nsr-inc.com/volleyball and have the athletes that you feel can play at the collegiate level one day complete a FREE SCOUT ME form.  As we receive these Scout ME forms prior to the event, we can assign a scout to come and sit court side and evaluate her.  This will also allow us to communicate with the many college coaches that we will be talking with directly before and after the tourney.  In fact, each year hundreds of the college coaches from all over the country communicate with NSR and give us exactly what they are looking for in their future scholarship athletes.  So, in order to possible get these kids the maximum amount of exposure, please get them to complete the scout me forms at www.nsr-inc.com/volleyball.

Can You Dig It!
