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. The Philly Summer Showcase is held at the United Sports Center, which features four lighted turf fields, which means the weather will not be an issue at this event.

  • Division breakdown: 2024/2025 and 2026/2027
  • Every team coached by an NCAA coach
  • NCAA Rules - 80-second shot clock and crease dives
  • Three games and an All-Star Game
  • Face-off and goalie-specific training from the Faceoff Factory & Goaliesmith
  • Every game is professionally filmed by Next Level Video 
  • The day before the Boys Philly Invitational 
  • All-Stars earn an automatic Invite to the Nike Boys Philly Showcase - the nation's premier individual recruiting event 

Each Showcase participant receives a gear package upon checking into the event. Each team will be led by NCAA DI college coaches. In addition to coaching teams, college coaches will lead all skills clinics and recruiting talks, providing players with an opportunity to work directly with them.

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.

Showcase All-Star Evaluation

We have three evaluators watching every game. The evaluators are simply given a list of players and numbers and no information about where a player is from or who they play for. The evaluators are not stat-counting but instead 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.

EXPOSURE

NXT Showcases are where the best high school players get seen and recruited. In 2022, 231 college were in attendance for the 2022 Boys Philly Summer Showcase & Invitational weekend - a record for the event. 70+ coaches alone were in attendance for the Showcase.
