Trosky Baseball is the leader in College Games Camps. With nearly 20 years of experience working college prospect camps and major showcase events, Trosky Baseball has developed the most productive camps in the country, connecting both high school and junior college players with college coaches and MLB scouts.
Parents and players say Trosky camps exceed expectations. We are flexible with the schedules of those who cannot attend an entire event.
The Last Chance Showcases offer two unique baseball opportunities for all high school and junior college players to be seen by over 40 college coaches and professional baseball scouts. These events are designed to give players a final opportunity to be recruited before the NCAA early signing period beginning November 13th, 2016.
NCAA Regulations (last chance): Due to NCAA regulations November 13th is the last day of the year that Division I and Division II college coaches can go off campus to recruit unless hired to work an event. This NCAA sanctioned non-recruiting quiet period extends through February 2017. Since Nov. 13th is the last day before the NCAA quiet period, the Last Chance Showcases are important events for aspiring college athletes.
Note: In November, college coaches will be mailing out National Letters of Intent to high school prospects. In order to sign a National Letter of Intent, high school prospects must either sign between November 14-17 or wait until the next signing period to open in April 2017.

Understanding the Recruiting Process is the First Step to Creating Opportunities.
HS Senior / Junior College: HS seniors and JC players - this is your last window to be recruited before the NCAA Early Signing Period opens and the NCAA Quiet Period begins. The NCAA Quiet Period runs through February 2014, meaning the NCAA DI and DII coaches are no longer allowed to recruit off campus, unless they are hired to work an event.
HS Juniors: The most productive time for high school players to be recruited is during their junior year. In this new era of recruiting, most elite players receive baseball scholarships during this time.
HS Sophomores / Freshmen: It is important for young players to have vision and direction, to be motivated, to gain experience, to learn the recruiting process, and to develop confidence on the stage. Getting started early provides great benefit. The majority of Trosky Scholarship players start the recruiting process their freshmen year.

TROSKY'S 6 CONCEPTS:
After working numerous showcase events across the west coast and being a college recruiter and professional baseball scout, Coach Trosky became frustrated with the typical format used by major showcase and recruiting organizations. Typical formats include:
- a lower number of college coaches in attendance and a lack of diversity (different levels of colleges) among them
- a low number of repetitions on both offense and defense
- a limited amount of game exposure for both pitchers and position players
- a lack of connection with the coaches attending the event.
Over the years it became clear that despite attending numerous events and spending thousands of dollars, the majority of high school players end up frustrated and empty handed. As a result, the Trosky Games Camps model was built.
The 6 core concepts included in Trosky Games Camps are:
1.) Multiple Games:Players participate in 2 games (a simulated game and a live game). WIth the peaks and valleys of baseball, multiple games give each player the opportunity to show consistency and/or to make important adjustments. This allows players to display a more accurate representation of their game.
2.) Repetition: Players take batting practice in the cages before the games. They perform in skills training sessions and perform numerous repetitions between innings.
3.) Relationships: Attending college coaches are on the field coaching and getting to know the players. Camp activities conclude daily with the College Coach's Introduction, where players and parents have the opportunity to learn from the college coaches.
4.) Recruiting Information: Players and parents receive recruiting insight from active college recruiting coordinators and from recruiting specialist Nate Trosky. The informative talks conclude with a Q & A session. At the conclusion of camp activities, Coach Trosky is available to answer recruiting questions.
5.) Opportunity: Attending college coaches represent a wide range of colleges and universities (DI, DII, DIII, NAIA, and JC) giving each player the opportunity to be recruited by schools that meet his scholastic, financial, social, and athletic needs.
6.) Schedule Flexibility: Trosky Games Camps are flexible with the schedules of those who cannot attend the entire camp (if you have a special schedule request, we can accommodate). All players are free to come and go throughout the camp when they are not able to attend.
