Recruit Wisconsin

July 20-22, 2020
Appleton, Wisconsin



As of right now, we will not have Live Streaming for the many college coaches who are expecting it.

Why you ask?

The RW Staff has pushed out and asked for volunteers 5 different times now from all clubs, however no one is signing up for the Tuesday and Wednesday time slots. If we do not have volunteers, we will not be running live streams at those courts for your kids. We are a very small RW crew.

We have removed paying workers (what would transfer over to you as an admission fee) to provide as much service to you during what is a rough year for many people. BUT in order to remove that fee, we needed to ask for donations.

We are asking for two kinds of giving. Donation to the Sexual Assault Crisis Center in lieu of admission - there will be a money bag / box for you to donate at the spectator and coaches table, or you can donate online at

The other kind of giving is an in-kind donation of your time. Please volunteer here ASAP

If you need to split up times with other people, we are okay with that - but we just need the slots filled.

The live streaming is simple - just like any recording using an ipad and tripod. We need people to stand behind an ipad and turn it left to right from an angle at half court - which is best for college coaches to view your athletes. Scores are tracked by an app we download onto your phone.

We chose to ask you kindly to volunteer instead of charging admission to help everyone during this 2020 year.

We have many college coaches who have not been able to attend in person. This is for them too! The next best thing and truly ONLY OPTION for them this summer is for us to band together and come alongside our athletes and do all we can for our kids and our college coaches. We are living out our opportunity right now. Let's take advantage of it!

We are using what is probably one of the best quality live streaming platforms we have come across this summer. Let's not waste this opportunity for you and your athletes to gain an advantage this summer.

Please consider being part of our Recruit Wisconsin Staff for a short time to make this the best possible event yet!

Please donate
Please serve

If you choose to serve - please register on the signup genius link or let your RW staff know at check-in time.

Just a head's up that we tweaked the Waiver slightly to make it flow better for everyone. If you already filled it out, you are good. If for some reason, you had a little trouble, you should be good to go now.

Directors please make sure you pass this message to your families.

In addition, we did have one team who had to back out of the tournament due to a team conflict, the schedule may change slightly. Please keep an eye on the schedule all the way through Sunday because as you may have already experienced, this season everything is Subject to Change.

If there are any major changes this weekend for teams, we will focus on notifying just those teams / divisions who are impacted.

We will be sending another detailed message out answering some typical questions we have been fielding regarding numbers of wristbands per team.

In addition, we will also be including docs that display the venue layout, and where check in and entrances will be located.

Thank you.
