#NXTSHOWCASE

The Midwest's Premier Recruiting Event

The Can-Am Showcase annually attracts elite high school talent from both the United States and Canada, particularly the lacrosse hotbed of Southern Ontario. Over its 10 year history, this event has seen NCAA DI, DII, & DIII All-Americans, PLL and NLL pros, and a member of Team Canada participate in the Can-Am Showcase.

Now it’s your turn to make your mark. 

The Can-Am Showcase has attracted 50+ coaches each of the last two seasons. In 2020—during a DI recruiting dead period— 57 coaches were still in attendance throughout the weekend. Every game was also live-streamed to coaches around the country.

Grand Park

The Can-Am Showcase will take place at the state-of-the-art Events Center at the Grand Park Sports Campus. Home to three full-sized indoor turf fields, concessions, and a raised viewing area for spectators. 

Event Highlights

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 by college coaches

  • Battle against the best competition from across the United States and Canada in this invite-only Showcase event 
  • Three full-sized indoor turf fields 
  • Every team is coached by an NCAA coach
  • Three 55-minute games
  • Skills clinics and recruiting talks led by the NCAA coaches on staff
  • King of the X battle for face-off midfielders in front of college coaches
  • All participants receive an exclusive Nike Gear Package
  • Additional All-Star, King of the X, and MVP Nike Gear Packs

Showcase All-Star Evaluation

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.

Our Process

The Showcase is open to any and all participants in the appropriate grad years. 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. After you send in your application/nomination, we review them and send you details on how to register.

Invitation Dates

Invitations will be sent out on a bi/monthly basis. 

Positions & Capacity

Due to high demand, many positions fill up quickly. If we reach capacity and are no longer accepting applications for your position, we will open up the waitlist. Details on registering for the waitlist will be posted here as well as communicated through email.
