Last weekend marked the 10th anniversary of the Can-Am Showcase and Invitational. This weekend has historically given players from "non-traditional" lacrosse markets and Canada a chance to get in front of college coaches. The 10th rendition was no different. 

The state-of-the-art Grand Park Sports Event Center in Westfield, IN welcomed 267 athletes representing 13 states and Canada on Saturday for the Can-Am Showcase - a record for the event. Players traveled from as far as Minnesota and Florida to compete in front of the college coaches. 

On Sunday, 53 teams representing states such as Kentucky, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, and more took the field for the Can-Am Invitational. 

In total, the weekend welcomed 98 college coaches for the two events. The Saturday Showcase had 64 coaches in attendance while the Sunday Invitational saw an additional 34 coaches roam the Grand Park sidelines. 

Highlighting the group of coaches was Matt Brown, Assistant Coach at Denver, Chris Wojcik, Assistant Coach at Notre Dame, and Randy Mearns, Head Coach at St. Bonaventure as well as the former Head Coach of the Canadian National Team that won the gold medal at the 2014 World Games.
