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.

The Nike Boys Philly Showcase sells out every year. Skip the waitlist and apply today!

NIKE PHILLY SHOWCASE MVP'S
