The Boys Philly Showcase, now in its tenth year, is widely considered to be North America's premier recruiting event. This is a two-day event with registration on Friday (November 16th), which includes a charity basketball game featuring college coaches as well as skills competition for prizes, an elite gear store, and a college coach panel for recruiting advice.
Philly Showcase Kickoff Highlights (click here to RSVP!)
Saturday is an individual player Showcase before the Boys Philly Invitational team event. All players in the Saturday event are divided up and placed on teams coached by established coaches from some of the top high school programs in the area.
Each participant will receive a Nike & Epoch gear package. Throughout the day, college coaches will lead all skills clinics and a recruiting talk, 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:
Round 1- April 26, 2018 / Round 2 - May 31, 2018 / Round 3 - June 28, 2018 / Round 4 - July 26, 2018
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.
This is the Boys Philly Showcase's tenth year of existence. For the 10-year anniversary, the apparel on-site will have an exclusive Showcase X logo. Below are some facts about its previous nine years:
The 2017 Boys Philly Showcase and Invitational weekend at United Sports in Downingtown, PA hosted 188 college coaches representing 144 colleges, including several NCAA National Champions. Over the course of the weekend, 35 of the college coaches attended both days, representing 11 Division I, 7 Division II, and 17 Division III programs.
