Manney's Men Selections for 2019 Can-Am Showcase
Featured are the players that stood out to Brett Manney during the 2019 Can-Am Showcase
The name of the event – The Can-Am Showcase – reflects the event's inclusion of elite players from both the United States and Canada, particularly the lacrosse hotbed of Southern Ontario. In its 9th year, all players will be divided into teams, each coached by a college coach, and will have the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of the college recruiters in attendance. ALL DIVISIONS ARE FULL FOR 2020.
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 choose the participants for the Select Game.
Teams are guaranteed 3 games. Games will be 55-minutes long, consisting of 25-minute running halves and a 2-minute half-time. All games are officiated by top certified officials under NCAA rules. A Select Game evaluator is present as a Field Coordinator at each field, ensuring fair assessment for each participant.
Showcase Lacrosse provides an educational component at every event. The Showcase includes an informational session led by a coach on the college recruiting process and the demands of being a college lacrosse player. All individual teams will be coached by a college coach.
I. Our Process
This event is open to any and all participants in the corresponding graduation years. 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.
In 2019, the Can-Am Showcase attracted 70 college coaches who populated the sidelines and gave players the opportunity to compete against some of the nation's top talent.
Yale • Michigan • Canisius • Marist • UMASS Lowell • Cleveland State (2) • Air Force • Detroit Mercy (2) • High Point • Bellarmine
Division I coaches will not be allowed on the sidelines at any recruiting event this fall. NCAA DII & DIII coaches are still permitted to attend. As a result, NXT will live stream and make all game film available to NCAA coaches around the country. Along with the game film and live stream access, coaches will also receive a full recruiting packet just as if they were at the event.
NXT is still committed to providing you with top-level exposure at our recruiting events. We are proud to be partnered with industry-leading Next Level Video to help ensure athletes are still getting in front of college coaches this fall.
EVERY GAME at the 2020 Can-Am Showcase will be live-streamed, filmed, and distributed to college coaches.
Next Level Video is our exclusive video provider for this event. Games will be professionally filmed in HD from an elevated angle and several game film and highlight reel packages are available. Order before the event to lock in discounted early-bird rates.
