Welcome to the Show

The NXT Southern Showcase is an elite high school event that features an individual player Showcase. 2018 dates allow for Top Division II and Division III Coaches to get a look at athletes early on, while also preparing players for the busy fall recruiting season by providing a highly competitive and educational experience. All players in the Saturday event are divided up and placed on teams coached by NCAA college coaches. Check out the list below to find the Coaches that led teams at the 2017 Southern Showcase. 

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.

Event Highlights

  • The NXT Southern Showcase is open to all 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 players
  • The NXT Southern Showcase is an individual competition on Saturday, Oct. 27, which features elite freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors. 
  • Battle against the best competition from the Southeast in this invitation-only, exclusive Showcase event 
  • The fourth-year event is modeled after the Boys Philly Showcase, the nation's top high school lacrosse recruiting event.
  • Fab 40 All-Star game participants receive an exclusive Southern Showcase Nike gear package.

Game Day

Teams are guaranteed three games. Games will be 55 minutes long, consisting of two 25-minute running halves and a two-minute halftime. All games are officiated by top certified officials under NCAA rules. An All-Star evaluator is present as a field coordinator at each field, ensuring fair assessment for each participant. 

The Draft

I. Our Process

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 according to the following schedule:

Round 1- April 26, 2018 / Round 2- May 31, 2018 / Round 3- June 28, 2018 / Round 4- July 26, 2018
