Re: Combines and CAmps with college coaches

Years back went to an "exposure camp" with tons of coaches listed. Well run, good time, but one of the big name coaches slipped and said it was an "exposure camp" since kids were exposed to different coaches, not that coaches were there with clipboards...appreciated his honesty but never went back.

Not sure I am following. Isn’t the objective to get exposure?

He is saying the camp was designed to expose kids to different coaches and coaching styles & that the coaches themselves weren't paying any attention to names, etc. of the kids there.

NCAA dead period moved to 9/1. How is camps like the top60 and the one the guy from Vermont keeps running able to use college coaches? Breaking rules.... right
Who cares. Most certainly don’t. Probably a good skate. Wait! I know what is. The ankle bender got cut or your not making your Nut.

It's not a violation. There are specific guidelines for coaches to follow, you could always Google it but essentially it's not considered recruiting as long as they aren't running it as a tryout, and nobody gets a break on the price. Example, during an agility drill, if a coach puts a stopwatch on a player, that would be a violation. Same drill, no stopwatch and offer a little instruction and it's permissible.

You had a violation when you used a stopwatch to time your wife “Big Bertha” rolling around the outside of NESC.

Re: Combines and CAmps with college coaches

Not a violation either if the kids aren't high school aged.
