NOVI, Mich. - The 2021 Michigan Jaguars FC Boys Winter Showcase will kick off on Saturday morning at Total Sports Wixom. The club will host some of Michigan's top youth teams and college coaches from around the country.
"We are excited to give our players this opportunity," said Michigan Jaguars FC Executive Director Paul Tinnion. "One of our biggest goals as a club is to help kids who are interested in playing college soccer achieve that dream. These showcases are a great chance to get our players in front of many top tier programs."
With COVID restrictions impacting travel for many college coaches, the event will be livestreamed for the first time in its history. More than 85 college programs will be in attendance, either in-person or virtually.
"The COVID-19 restrictions have actually helped us expand access for scouts," Tinnion said. "Adding a livestream was extremely important this year as a majority of scouts will be attending virtually. It is something we will look to continue in future years to help improve the accessibility of our event.
Every match can be watched live on the Showcase event page here. The matches will also be available to watch after the showcase via the same link.
A representative from Michigan Jaguars FC video partner VEO will be on site to demonstrate its Sports Camera technology. VEO will have recordings of the matches available at veo.co/game. From there, select the 2021 Jaguars Boys Winter Showcase and then enter an email to get access.
All players, scouts, and spectators must follow the Total Sports Wixom COVID-19 guidelines listed here.
