What does the online recruiting profile include?

The Recruit This™ online recruiting profile will house the athlete’s skills videos. They will also have the ability to update their physical attributes, academic standings, and upload game film if desired. Their online recruiting profile will give athletes direct access to send their recruiting profile to a database of over 52,000 college coaches in a personalized way from Junior College, NAIA, to NCAA Division I. The Recruiting Factory doesn’t believe in limiting an athlete like other recruiting services do however we strongly advise parents and athletes discuss with their coaches a realistic colligate level that fits their skill-set and overall potential.

What happens at the Recruiting Factory Elite Baseball Combine?

Athletes will arrive and check in. They will receive their camp shirt, and have their photo taken before heading to the field to stretch. The athletes will be led through a dynamic warm-up, and will do a few short position specific drills (Infield, Outfield, Catchers, and Pitchers) with staff members to get acclimated to coaches and field conditions. Next the athlete’s will be broken up into groups based on their position and rotate to various stations. There will be a break mid-day and we will provide lunch. After lunch athletes will be led through another dynamic warm-up, with more position and skills drills. During these position drills the Recruiting Factory will be filming athletes for their individual skills to be uploaded to their personal recruiting profile.

What are the player benefits for attending the Jermaine Dye's Recruit This™ Camp?

Players participating in our camp will be given the chance to earn national exposure by competing against other top athletes in that camp’s region. Individual position skills video will be filmed and both current and former MLB players will give athletes high-level critiquing. Athletes will learn what it takes to compete at a high level, compare their abilities against others and walk away with everything they need to begin their recruiting journey. Our camp is a great way to improve overall position technique, and earn national recognition for top performances in each position.

What should athletes bring to the camp?

Players participating in our camp will need to bring a pair of cleats, a glove, and a bat. Lunch and hydration will be provided during the camp but players are encouraged to bring their own snack/energy bar just in case.

Will you have medical training staff on location?

Yes. Fully qualified medical training staff personnel will be on site. In the event of a more serious injury, there are major hospitals located within 5 miles of the facility.

What happens in the event of inclement weather?

Safety is our #1 priority, in the event of severe weather (lightning/torrential rains), we must remain indoors until all clear. If unable to continue we will make every effort to reschdule a make-up day.

What level of competition should a player expect at the camp?

Players at our camp should expect to go against other top players from their region. We make every effort to split athletes up by age and athletic abilities so athletes are able to showcase their true potential to the fullest extent.

What if I think I made too many mistakes in my skills video, will it hurt being recruited?

No, because not every athlete is perfect and can perform mistake free. College coaches are trained to see good technique even through a miss step or lapse in technique. Having a video true that includes a few athletic mistakes allows college coaches to more effectively see an athlete’s true athletic potential. College coaches do not want to see another perfect highlight reel to the beat of the athlete’s favorite track.

Are parents allowed to watch the Camp?

Yes. However, due to insurance reasons, it is mandatory that all non-participants remain in the stands or parent designated area. During our camp during the video shoot athletes may feel extra pressure to perform therefore we ask parents to be encouraging and refrain from giving constructive feedback on their performance.

Can camp participants request autographs from the MLB athletes?

Yes. However, we ask these requests be made at the conclusion of the camp and for the participating athletes only. All coaches and staff members will be working and focused on providing the best experience possible. Fulfilling autographs during the session takes away from the registered participants.
