The Baltimore Summer Showcase attracts elite talent and college coaches to the unofficial start of the summer recruiting season. Showcase Lacrosse runs professional events at elite venues, and this Showcase will occur at the home of perennial NCAA tournament participant Towson University.
The Baltimore Summer Showcase features elite 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 grad year players from across the country. Every participant will enjoy the best exposure, education, and experience possible. Apply today to experience the NXT difference at the Baltimore Summer Showcase! This event is open to any and all participants in the respective grad years.
The goal of Showcase Lacrosse is to provide exposure & education for young athletes. Our Showcase events have historically been the most well-attended events of the year. The Baltimore Summer Showcase is held at Towson University, which features four lighted turf fields, which means the weather will not be an issue at this event.
Each Showcase participant receives a Nike gear package upon checking into the event. Individuals from the 2020 and 2021 grad years will battle together, while the 2022s and 2023s join up to make up the second division. Each team will be led by a prominent high school coach from the surrounding area, as well as a college coach. In addition to participants' team coach, College Coaches will lead all skills clinics and recruiting talks, providing players with an opportunity to work directly with them.

I. Our Process
The pride of Showcase Lacrosse is our process. We collect both an Application as well as a Nomination from the athlete's high school or club coach. This allows us to learn about the player through their highlight film, in addition to gauging their abilities from the perspective of a coach. We then review all Application/Nominations and send emails with instructions to register.
If the selections from the prior round of the Draft do not register before the dates below, their spot will no longer be guaranteed. This is a first come, first-serve basis registration.
II. Invitation Dates
Invitations will be sent out on a bi/monthly basis according to the following schedule:
We have three evaluators watching every game. The evaluators are simply given a list of players and numbers and are not given any information about where a player is from or who they play for. The evaluators are not stat-counting, but rather grading the players on the skills and attributes needed to be a successful college lacrosse player. At the end of the morning session, we run all the numeric grades through our program to select the All-Stars.
The second annual 2018 Baltimore Showcase hosted 106 athletes and 33 college coaches for an intense one-day tournament at Towson University. The showcase attracted 14 Division I, 7 Division II, and 12 Division III college coaches, amounting to a 3:1 player to coach ratio on only two turf fields. Players traveled from 15 states, including some non-Mid-Atlantic states: Texas, California, Ohio, Florida, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and North Carolina to compete in the Maryland heat.
