FAQs
Who are the directors of Hotbeds?

The Battle of the Hotbeds was started by Bob Shillinglaw from the University of Delaware, and Andy Shay from Yale University.

How do I nominate my players for the Hotbeds All-Star Game?

You don't have to. Hotbeds employs 12 Division I, II, and III college coaches to evaluate the entire camp over the course of the first few days. The teams are picked after multiple evaluation submissions, committee meetings, and heated arguments.

Can we bring a filmer with our team?

Unfortunately no. We have an exclusive contract is with Next Level Video. Next Level videotapes all of the games and contracts are available at a reduced rate BEFORE the camp, AND after the camp at a full rate.

What college coaches will be in attendance?

We dont typically post an expected college coach list as we know a coach's plans may change at a moments notice. We typically get about 200 college coaches representing about 150 Division I, II, and III programs. We also get a number of MCLA schools as well as some prep schools that are looking to recruit PG candidates.

Each attending coach gets paperwork as well as a digital file. All the updates are put in the final file.

Is this a camp or a tournament?

This is a tournament that is in a per player camp model. Because we want to control the organization of the jerseys, afford dormitory options, have an instructional component, and have an all-star game, we came up with the concept for Hotbeds. We are able to create a stronger team environment over four days, and we feel that the extended time allows us to create strong and valid All-Star teams.

How does my son make the All-Star team?

He needs to play well for our All-Star staff. Our staff of twelve college coaches watches every single game until the final voting. Our staff uses an application on their phones to submit votes, and each vote is tabulated. The All-Stars are selected by college coaches who are professionals at evaluating talent. Our All-Star staff is loaded with coaches from Yale, Delaware, Mt. St. Mary's, Pace, St. Johns, Bucknell, Washington College, Sacred Heart, Lafayette College, AIC, and Marquette among others.
