North America's Premier Summer Showcase!

Under the Girls Philly Showcase's exciting and unique format, each participant is placed on a team for the day and coached by a college coach.

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 applications/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.
