2018 Event Format, 2019 format will be updated at a later date.
Each team will participate in five overall instructional games Friday, November 2, starting no earlier than 1pm and Saturday, November 3, again starting no earlier than 1pm. The College Coach open house is Sunday, November 4, after the Individual Showcase Camp. Pitching distance is 43 feet. The Virginia Beach Showcase is not a tournament, nor are teams advancing to championship play. There will be NO SCORE kept during this event. 1 hour and 20 minute drop dead games and no substitution restrictions. We will have two umpires on each field to help control the game for time and keep all parties on the field safe.
College coaches working these games will be rotating fields every 40 minutes. College Coaches will be working the Team Showcase from the backstops. A great way to attract coaches to your games is to contact coaches prior to the event informing them on team name and game times. Players who participate in the individual session (mornings) can work with coaches as well.
Parent Talk: A TCS representative will present a short talk to help parents and players start a dialog about their future on Friday November 2 around 9am (between the Individual Showcase Camp Skills Sessions). All parents and players are welcome to attend even if they are not in the Individual Showcase Camp. Sunday (after the Individual Showcase Camp Games, about noon) there will be an "Open House" opportunity for players to talk with all college coaches in attendance. NCAA coaches will be wearing RED name tags and can only speak to high school seniors about their program due to NCAA compliance. NAIA and Junior College coaches will be wearing GREEN tags and can talk to ANY player regardless of graduation year about their program. Coaches can discuss their academic programs with any player.
