#NXTSHOWCASE

Welcome to the Show!

NXT has teamed up with Myers Brothers Lacrosse (MBX) under which NXT will operate the Southern MBX Showcase, an elite high school recruiting and educational event allowing athletes to learn from top Division I, II, and III coaches while also being evaluated. 

This unique event offers the perfect mix of skill development and exposure. Athletes will spend time learning from the top NCAA DI, DII, and DIII coaches in position-specific breakout sessions. After a morning of training and skill development, athletes will have a chance to showcase their skills in front of the coaches. 

Myers Brothers Lacrosse

Myers Brothers Lacrosse is jointly operated by Ohio State Men's Lacrosse Head Coach, Nick Myers, and Lafayette Men's Lacrosse Head Coach, Pat Myers. Both named to the Team USA U19 staff, the Myers brothers will develop the curriculum for the Southern MBX Showcase as well as lead the on-field coaching efforts.

 

Event Highlights

  • The Southern MBX Showcase is open to all 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024 players
  • Position-specific breakout sessions led by top-level NCAA coaches
  • Fab 40 All-Star game participants receive an exclusive Southern MBX Showcase gear package.

Curriculum 

Before breaking out into teams, athletes will spend each morning working with their position-specific coaches. These college-style training sessions give athletes a unique opportunity to learn from the nation's top NCAA coaches. Athletes will work on their individual skillset as well as learning important team concepts such as the two-man game and offense and defensive 6-on-6. 

Game Day

Teams will be drafted by the coaches after the first morning of training. Each team is guaranteed three games. Games will be 55 minutes long, consisting of two 25-minute running halves and 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. 

Exposure

  • Last year's series of NXT Fall Showcases hosted more than 300 college coaches representing virtually every NCAA men's lacrosse program.
  • All games at the Southern MBX  Showcase will be professionally filmed in HD by Next Level Video and a complete video package is available to all participants.

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.

 

The Draft

I. Our Process
This event is open to any and all participants in the corresponding graduation years. 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 25, 2020 / Round 2: May 30, 2020 / Round 3: June 27, 2020 /Round 4:  July 25, 2020
