Participants of past National Invitational 175 Showcases:
“I play goalie for the LI Express and have played in a lot of tournaments and showcases. I was invited to attend the National Invitational 175 fall 2012 showcase and their summer 2013 showcase. Both were awesome. These guys do a great job….there are tons of college coaches there and challenging, high level competition to play against. I am hoping to get invited to attend their fall showcase on Long island on Nov 26th.” – Devin Burdo/LI Express
“I was excited to be a participant at both the Best of the Best National Invitational Team Showcase and the Nat Invite 175 at RPI this summer. They were great events that provided me with a fantastic opportunity to play against top level competition and in front of many of the top college coaches in the country. I really look forward to attending the future Nat Invite events!” – Jack Kniffin 2016 attack at Darien HS & Ct Chargers
