NXT is excited to announce a collaborative project with Myers Brothers Lacrosse (MBX) under which NXT will operate the Southern MBX Showcase, an elite high school event allowing for top Division I, II, and III coaches to get an early look at athletes while preparing players for a busy fall recruiting season by providing a highly competitive and educational experience.
Myers Brothers Lacrosse is jointly operated by Ohio State Mens Lacrosse Head Coach, Nick Myers, and Lafayette Mens Lacrosse Head Coach, Pat Myers. Both recently named to the Team USA U19 staff, the Myers brothers will develop the curriculum for both the Southern MBX Showcase and Southern MBX Training, as well as lead the on-field coaching efforts.
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.
Teams are 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.
Showcase Lacrosse provides an educational component at every event. The Showcase includes an informational session led by a Division I coach on the college recruiting process and the demands of being a college lacrosse player. All individual teams will be coached by a Division I coach.
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 25, 2019 / Round 2: May 30, 2019 / Round 3: June 27, 2019 /Round 4: July 25, 2019
Designed for the 2024- 2026 grad years, the Southern MBX Training Camp promises to be a best-in-class player experience with a unique opportunity provided to participating athletes. This training camp provides middle schoolers a taste of what’s expected at the next level by experiencing instruction from Division I, II, and III coaches directly. The training camp will provide a series of drills and games under the direction of on-field coaching by the Myers Brothers. The training camp provides the younger age group an opportunity to learn what it feels like to participate in a recruiting event without the pressure of coaches taking notes.
Next Level Video is our exclusive video provider for this event. Games will be professionally filmed in HD from an elevated angle and several game film and highlight reel packages are available. Order before the event to lock in discounted early-bird rates.
