Fields are ringed by a six lane track, from where coaches will evaluate prospective players. The Dome is located at 25 Shelter Rock Lane, Danbury, Connecticut, only minutes from I84 exit 8.

    Cost & Benefits

Prospective players will showcase for college coaches from some of the most academically elite colleges and universities in the country. Sessions are run by professional coaches, which allows the college coaches to exclusively focus on evaluating the players.
