The National Invitational 175 just launched two fall boys’ lacrosse showcases…why might you care?
The events are being held on Nov. 10 in Connecticut and No. 26 on Long Island.
High school players in the classes of 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 seeking to get recruited may want to seriously consider these two showcases. The previous four National Invitational showcases have sold out with big waitlists and have drawn rave reviews from participants (see below) and coaches.
Directors said that each of these showcases are expected to see overall demand far exceeding spots available and the competition level will likely be very high. Event directors said they consider it keenly important to maintain the quality of each showcase and will not expand the numbers (approximately 175) for each grade.
Directors have moved up the application deadline from Sept 1st to August 18th and invites will be sent between August 25th-Sept 1.

“I play for NJ Riot 2016 and my goal is to play at a high College level. I was invited and attended both Jake Reed Nike Blue Chip and National Invite 175 this summer.
