How to Find the Best Football Prospect Camps

How to Find the Best Football Prospect Camps

Published on: Mar 08, 2019

Finding the best football prospect camps can be challenging, not to mention frustrating and long. 

We feel you.

That’s why we started Ryzer, so you can focus on competing and getting noticed—not spending hours looking for the right camps. 

If you’re in the process of finding a football prospect camp that meets your needs, here’s what we suggest:

Create your free Ryzer account today. Ryzer lets you follow specific schools, target colleges by state, and use the “Event Search” option to find prospect camps that interest you. We’ll notify you of events as they become available and even help you register—simple as that.

Get real about your needs, wants, and ambitions. What might be the ideal prospect camp for another athlete might not work for you. Think about which schools have the academic program you’d like to pursue, where you’d like to live, and what size school you may be able to play for. This requires an honest evaluation of your athletic skills. If you need help finding an honest assessment, ask your coach, have your coach speak with competing coaches, and consider using a recruiting service such as NCSA.

Check out their rosters. Once you’ve identified camps of interest, take a close look at their rosters. What do they have for players at your position? When do those players graduate and how does that fit with when you’ll be entering college? There’s no magic rule, but a one-year overlap is generally ideal (they’re a senior when you’re a freshman).

Consider who they recruit. Do the teams in attendance typically recruit high school athletes, junior college players, transfers, or a mix of all 3? If you fall into their category of choice, you’re getting closer to finding your ideal camp. 

Compare your skillset to past recruits. If the coaches you’d love to play for have recruited athletes with your skillset in the past, that might make their prospect camp the right one for you.

Finding your ideal prospect camp doesn’t have to be a hassle, especially if you follow these steps. 

Join Ryzer today and we’ll handle the hard parts—so you can get out there and get noticed.
