Welcome to the NFCA Fall Top Recruit Tournament
Eddie C. Moore Complex -- Clearwater, Florida -- October 12 -14, 2012
The NFCA Top Recruit Tournament Format

The Clearwater Top Recruit Tournament will feature a 52-team format in a single location with a five-game guarantee. Events will run for three days, with each team playing three pool games on the first two days of the event (Friday/Saturday) within their respective age group (16U and 18U).

At the completion of pool play, all teams will then be seeded and placed into brackets. For each age group there will be four divisions: Gold, Silver, Bronze and Copper. Teams will be placed into brackets based first on their win/loss record in pool play, then runs allowed, followed by runs scored. If a tie-breaker is needed for seeding, a coin flip will be the deciding factor. The teams will then play two games within their respective bracket to determine an overall winner of each division.

Tournament Information

Head Coach Meeting: Friday morning at 10 a.m. at the Eddie C. Moore Complex, Fields 1-4

Pre-Game: There will be a mandatory pre-game warm up prior to each game with on field skills being showcased.  This information will be distributed prior to your arrival in order to allow each team time to prepare.

 * * * NFCA joins with University Athlete * * *
The NFCA is excited to offer college coaches the exclusive use of a cutting edge recruiting tool at NFCA Top Recruit Tournaments!

University Athlete (UA) is the premier recruiting tool connecting collegiate coaches and athletes. Already used extensively by college volleyball coaches, UA is now joining with the NFCA to offer its services to college softball coaches. UA combines the convenience of an online database with the efficiency of iPhone, Android, and Blackberry to assist coaches' recruiting efforts at tournaments. UA is NOT a recruiting service; UA does not sell athletes to colleges nor promote them in any way.

Exclusive at the NFCA Top Recruit Tournament in Clearwater, all registered college recruiters will be offered free access to UA that will bring tournament rosters, player information, game schedules, game field location, bracket updates and more to your mobile device. Roster and schedule updates can easily be downloaded to your phone as the event goes on so you will always have the latest information without having to hang out at a tournament desk or jot notes off a web site.

UA's mobile software, called "University Athlete Recruiter" (UAR) contains the complete roster information found in a typical player information guide. It allows you to tag players before the event and automatically builds a schedule for you of all the athletes you want to see sorted by time and field. As you are watching, you can rank players, take notes, even cross someone off your list. Get an email with an excel file of all your work any time. The ability to instantly find any player or team, and evaluate and take notes all without losing valuable time needed to watch games will save you dozens of hours at each event.

University Athlete is used by virtually every volleyball program in the country. Go talk to the volleyball coaches at your school and ask them to share some more information.
