The Denver Shootout started as the original Denver Team Camp in 2004 and has flourished into a 200+ team tournament. Conveniently, the dates for the Shootout precede the Warrior Vail Tournament, so teams from around the country can extend their stay and participate in both tournaments.
Featuring 70+ college recruiters and 4000 players in attendance in 2014, the high school division is known as the best recruiting opportunity in the West! The Denver Shootout has grown to include every age group from U-9 to High School, and also offers a Friday Skills Clinic run by college coaches that is open to every participant. This clinic is yet another great opportunity to be seen by NCAA coaches and learn new skills.
