About Us

Since 1989, The Sport Source® has been connecting kids to colleges with tremendous success. Our CEO, Charlie Kadupski, started the Showcase in an effort to help kids get seen and recruited. Many of the players who have participated are now playing professionally or coaching at the college and youth levels. If you are not familiar with us, our educational college planning tools are designed to help families and players take the guess work out of where and how to find the right college, both academically and athletically.

More than $300 million in scholarships has been awarded to families who used our college programs.



ABOUT THE SHOWCASE

The Sport Source® Annual Showcase is one of the top college recruiting events in Texas, and it is held each year over the first weekend of December. Formerly known as the Junior-Senior Showcase, everyone has now come to know our event as The Sport Source® Showcase And Clinic.

The event attracts local, state, regional, national, ODP, and international teams. Each year, approximately 300 college coaches representing NCAA (Divisions I, II, & III), NAIA, NCCAA, and NJCAA attend, making the event one to remember. If your goal is to pursue a college education and play soccer at the collegiate level, you've come to the right place.

Our goal is to provide players and teams with a competitive atmosphere and give the attending college coaches an opportunity to watch and recruit aspiring college bound student-athletes who are interested in playing at the collegiate level.

AGE GROUPS: The Showcase is open to all competitive U15-U19 boys and girls teams, with priority acceptance going to Juniors and Seniors.
