Our College Showcase pages are designed to assist college coaches and recruiters in the search for quality players who have expressed an interest in obtaining collegiate playing opportunities. Rainier Valley Slammers teams and players, U15 and above, are highlighted in this section. Our RVS College Coordinator, Megan DeHan, plays an active role in assisting players as they navigate the college recruiting process. College coaches and recruiters are encouraged to contact Megan for more in depth information about the RVS teams and/or players highlighted in this section.

This year, the Rainier Valley Slammers sent two teams to the 2014 Las Vegas College Players Showcase Tournament in Las Vegas, NV. We joined several teams from our Slammer FC partners of Southern Cal also participating in the tournament. Each season, thousands of teams apply to participate in this Showcase event. Both RV Slammers teams that applied (G97-Hargett and G96-DeHan) were accepted. Our acceptance and participation in this tournament is a testament to the continued growth and development of our Club and our players. The PLAYERS SHOWCASE tournament is held in conjunction with the USYS National League. The girls event was March 21-23, 2014. Over 500 teams representing the nation’s best players, including 96 teams representing the USYS National League, will compete in this year’s event. Over 400 college coaches and scouts were be on hand to evaluate talent. Players Showcase provides an unparalleled opportunity for players to showcase their talent, and for college coaches to evaluate and scout players.
