At NXT, our philosophy is to only publish the coaches or programs who will be running skills clinics, lecturing, or working at the event in some capacity. Out of respect for coaches, we do not publish the list of college coaches attending to recruit prior to the event. However, we do publish and share the College Coach Sign-In Sheets after the event. Our list of historical sign-in sheets at Showcase Events is the best in class. Please note, the college coaching staffs listed above have committed to working at Showcase and MVP Events for the Summer of 2017. However, we do not guarantee that each institution will be represented at every single event
