My daughter did one of their 3 day camps this summer. It was expensive and I thought would be a waste of time and money, but was actually really good and I thought worth it. Girls worked closely with the coaches, a ton of coaches were there (even more than on the list), competition was good. They did a Q&A coach panel that was great. Not sure about the 1 day but would recommend the 3 day.

Itís all about making money. Cattle call with huge ranges of skill. Much better to go to targeted clinics at a school your child is actually interested in ( requires more focus and research but better time and $$ spent).

Do the one day early on if you want to get your toes wet, see where you fit in. The longer one is costly, tiring and has diminishing returns each day. Use the savings for the targeted school ID events

To go one step further, make this your rule of thumb .... if you kid has not expressed an interest in any of the colleges in attendance (for academic or other non-soccer reasons), then just skip it. Get the school part first, then worry about the soccer ... don't fish only for schools that express in interest in your kid on the field. Chances are they won't make 4 years and you will have a good possibility of being at a school that they still dont love. Chase the school, not the soccer .... most have soccer anyways.

PS - When my older daughter was going through this, we made her tell us schools she liked and hated ... she invited those coaches to her tournaments and when it was narrowed down more, she went to a few of their ID camps. My son is a junior in HS and has done nothing to even begin looking at schools and it will certainly cost him if he really ends up wanting to play in college, but it will be a great lesson learned for him either way (when he ends up living at home, working a job, and going to the local CC, part-time in 2 years because he did not plan very well! ).

Not the poster but more boys are slow on the uptake and that's ok. I thought I might rip my hair out with mine then decided he had to figure it out. He eventually did, scrambled and ended up at a great place for him. We even agreed a gap year was in the table as long as there was a good plan to get to college the next year that made sense. Some of his friends were the same. A few had to start at lesser schools then transferred to much better ones. The old saying " you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink "
