Very true. It is all about the relationships and the TD's knowing your organization and teams. Jeremy texted me last week asking that due to the number of teams in the showcase they were going to ask 6 teams that had all committed players to go play at Chatt State for the weekend, just those 6, not publish the schedule, and give them full 7in games. There would be little to no coaches there, I told him put our 18u in. The Competition with the Fury, Impact and other travel teams with all D1 commits would be prefect for our team and for the 3 players still needing offers we would send them to play with our 16u team. We just returned from Orlando last night, we played a 5pm Sunday game against the Florida Gators Gold. There were only a couple colleges there, but one, App State, came over an watched the game and reached out about 1 of our players they saw. So, you never know. We played the Pennsbury Gold on Saturday, won 6-0 - afterwards I went up to their head coach/Penns tourney director to talk - he asked if we were coming back to Pennsbury, I told him last year was our first time there, we had ok college coach attendance, but we had a poor location placement, we got rained out of 2 games (the only complex to rain out) and we were considering not returning. He told me, we know your teams and organization and the colleges you draw, reach out on Monday, I will make sure your teams are well placed this summer. Again, if your organization leaders don't foster relationships with the top showcases, that's on them. It is not only who you know, it is also how you perform and the amount of colleges you have following you and your org.
