For the 2013 Best of the Midwest Challenge, we want to only feature the top clubs from the Midwest. It is our goal to create both a competitive atmosphere and excellent recruiting environment.
By using just one field, Thoson/Lucken, and a user friendly recruiting book, college coaches are able to evaluate all players multiple times in a relaxed environment.
In years past, we have had 20+ college coaches in attendance and we expect the same to be true for this year.
This year's Challenge will feature one, competitive bracket. We encourage rosters to be your top 2014, 2015, and 2016 graduates. Every player on the roster must be in high school.
Augustana College is a selective, private liberal arts college located on the shores of the Mississippi River in Rock Island, Illinois, part of the Quad Cities. Our 2,500 students have more than 70 majors and related academic programs from which to choose, and they enjoy an 11-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio. (more information)
