The Jamestown Savings Bank Arena is set to host its First Annual College Soccer Showcase on Saturday, November 30th. The showcase will take place on turf inside the friendly confines of the JSBA.

As a rarity to the area, this College Showcase will present a unique opportunity to area high school soccer players.

“This is the only showcase of its kind in the Chautauqua region,” said JSBA Turf Programming Director, JJ Bilinski. “It represents a great chance for high school players to show off their skills in front of numerous college scouts and coaches.”

Bilinski went on to add that all high school students, not just juniors and seniors are welcome to participate in the showcase. At the moment, 13 colleges will be represented at the showcase with more schools anticipated to attend. Coaches from men’s programs planning on being at the showcase include D’Youville, Cortland, Mercyhurst North East, Mercyhurst, JCC, Medaille and ECC. Coaches in attendance representing women’s teams will include Brockport, JCC, Edinboro, Alfred State, ECC and Hilbert.

The showcase will begin at 9am with player sign in at 8am on November 30th and here’s how it works. Each player that registers is guaranteed three games (each game consists of two 25 minute halves) throughout theday in front of the scouts and coaches. Players can sign up as individuals to be placed on a team or teams can sign up as a unit to play together. Either way, the cost is $60 per player.
