College Recruiting: We have hosted this tournament for over 30 years and we have a great reputation for getting kids recruited if they do the communication before hand. College coaches come to our tournament because they have made personal arrangements with a particular player to watch them play. We use over 65 fields across San Diego, but the college age kids are on fields centered around La Jolla/Clairemont and Del Mar neighborhoods of San Diego (U17-U18). Coaches don’t stand at one venue and wait for players to pass in front, the players write ahead of time to the coaches and communicate about GPA and courses, finances and if the player meets their school’s minimum requiremements and they have spots available on their roster, they will come out to our tournament. College Coaches usually are communicating with several players and so the more players that are interested in their school the more chance of them coming out to watch games, which then benefits all players in the age group. We have posted a list of coaches that are registered to access our player profiles database under the Player Resources area of our web site under Tournament home page. Players can purchase a player profile in our database ahead of time, which is accessed online through a password protected area College Coaches register to access. Profiles are also visible from links in the game schedules/team pages/rosters, etc. See the Player Resources
