2022 Boys Philly Invitational Coaches Recap
This past weekend at the Boys Philly Invitational a handful of college coaches showed up for some great talent. Check out who was on the sidelines at one of the premier recruiting events!
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 11-year history, this event has seen NCAA DI, DII, & DIII All-Americans, PLL and NLL pros, and members of Team Canada participate in the Can-Am Showcase.
The Can-Am Showcase has attracted 60+ coaches each of the last two seasons. In 2022, 97 coaches were in attendance throughout the weekend. Every game was also filmed and distributed to coaches around the country.
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.
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
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.
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.
Invitations will be sent out on a bi/monthly basis.
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.
