It was a rain-soaked Sunday in Downingtown, PA, but that didn’t stop some of the nation’s top girls lacrosse prospects from competing at the 2020 Nike Girls Philly Showcase Camp. 271 girls from 18 states met at United Sports and competed in front of in-person and virtual college coaches.
With the recruiting restriction put in place, this year’s Nike Girls Philly Showcase looked a little different. Rather than lining the sidelines, college coaches tuned in from across the country to the live stream of the event—which was provided for free for all college coaches. Select NCAA DII and DIII coaches still made a physical appearance at the event to either coach a team or recruit.
In total, 27 coaches were on-site for the Showcase including the 2018 DIII National Champion Gettysburg Bullets. Each Showcase team was coached by an NCAA DII/DIII coach or a select Team USA and WPLL pro on staff including Gussie Johns, Kylie Ohmiller, and Shayna Pirreca.
Every game on every field was also broadcasted live to NCAA coaches. Coaches could also pre-register to receive the film immediately after the event. Including the replays, 201 college coaches have watched the live stream broadcast. The list of pre-registered coaches included 87 Division I coaches including Duke, Penn State, Florida, and the 2018 National Champions, James Madison.
