Gulf States Showcase
College Showcase Soccer
One of the beauties of living on the Alabama Gulf Coast is that you can play youth soccer in December. And with warm weather expected, that’s just what we want to happen with the Gulf State College Showcase, hosted the first weekend of December.
Snap Soccer and the Gulf State Premier League will host the College Soccer Showcase, which will welcome youth soccer players as well as college soccer coaches. The goal, according to Snap Soccer’s Zack Touchstone, is to offer teams opportunities to play as many games as possible in front of those college coaches.
Soccer College Showcase Format
“U14 and U15 divisions are tournament style. U16 and up is showcase style with 3 games and no final,” Touchstone explained. “The format focuses on allowing the college coaches to get a good look at the attending players.”
Over 100 college soccer coaches in are invited, including representatives from Alabama State, University of Louisiana-LaFayette, and the University of North Alabama. While showcases are not a new thing in the soccer world, it is something new to the Gulf Coast.
“This area for a long time has been in need of a college soccer showcase to display our regional talent,” Touchstone said. “This event prevents our gulf coast teams from having to travel six-plus hours to find a high-quality showcase event.”
