Team Rosters for College Coaches – Mandatory for all teams
We are no longer using excel rosters for the Starfire Showcase! We are proud to be partnering with ScoutingZone in an effort to streamline the recruiting process through ScoutingZone’s cutting-edge mobile app and their comprehensive, “virtual” database. Not only does this maximize the exposure for each attendee, it also reduces the workload on team managers and coaches by moving team rosters online. This service is completely free to tournament participants. We will be sending out more information about the registration process, but players, managers and coaches are welcome to create an account in ScoutingZone if they do not already have one.
ScoutingZone gives players greater visibility among scouts and allows them to update their profiles to maximize exposure with photos and links to highlight videos. Players can create a Top 10 College list that alerts scouts of player matches for their program, increasing the opportunity for recruitment. In addition to streamlining the process for tournaments, scouts and players, ScoutingZone eliminates the time and costs associated with printing player profile booklets—all while making the experience environmentally-friendly.
