Schedule and Rosters
The schedule will be announced closer to the event. Once announced, plan your trip, and make sure you don't miss the match-up you've been waiting for.
The MidAmerica Showcase compliments the second annual MidAmerica Invitational weekend. Optimize your weekend with an intense individual event for players looking to compete. All athletes will be divided into teams, led by an NCAA college coach, and will have the opportunity to showcase their talents. The complex is second to none and gives college coaches ideal conditions to evaluate.
I. 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.
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:
All games are officiated by top certified officials under NCAA rules. An All-Star Game evaluator is present as is a Field Coordinator at each field, providing fair assessment for each participant.
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 first 2018 MidAmerica Showcase and MidAmerica Invitational had 60 college coaches on-site for an intense weekend at Grand Park. The Showcase was a high-exposure event with only two side-by-side fields. Players traveled from nine states and Canada, including some from all over the Midwest: Ohio, Missouri, Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Nebraska to compete in the Indiana heat.
