NCAA Viewing EVENTS
This month our older athletes will compete in an NCAA viewing event. These events bring hundreds of college scouts to one place with the intent to find athletes for their programs. Each of our athletes participating get put into the NCAA system so scouts have direct contact if they are interested. These events bring the best of the best to Seattle and our athletes are right there with them
We will take our athletes to these events starting their Freshman year of college, this way scouts can see them for 4 years. It’s an incredible experience and if you’re in the Seattle area next weekend I highly recommend you come check it out, it’s a great weekend of WONDERFUL talent!
