From Press Release
NXTsports’ Showcase Lacrosse is excited to announce its fall lineup of events that will feature both individual and team events for the nation’s best 2016, 2017 and 2018 players.
The Philly Charity Showdown, Philly Showcase and Philly Fall Invitational, to be held the weekend of Nov. 14, highlight the jam-packed slate of action this fall. Last year’s Charity Showdown, held at the Philadelphia Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park, helped raise more than $30,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Minds Matter initiative. The Philly Showcase, the nation’s marquee recruiting event, was the highlight of a weekend that featured the country’s top players and coaches from 63 of the 67 Division I schools at The Episcopal Academy in Newtown Square, Pa..
The Charity Showdown will feature a slate of games Friday, Nov. 14. NXTsports is finalizing plans to return to Citizens Bank Park after last year’s event’s overwhelming success. The Showcase will once again be held at Episcopal Academy and will feature the best uncommitted 2016s and 2017s in the country Saturday, Nov. 15. The Philly Fall Invitational, a team event that will host the nation’s best club and high school teams Sunday, Nov. 16 at Episcopal Academy caps the weekend.
Showcase Lacrosse will also host the Can-Am Showcase and Can-Am Invitational the weekend of Nov. 8 at Detroit Country Day School (Mich.). Can-Am has blossomed into the Midwest’s premier recruiting event. Each player will have the opportunity to be coached by a Division I coach in front of recruiters from more than 50 schools. The Invitational features 20 of the nation’s best club teams.
Two hundred of the best 2018s in the country and elite 2018 teams will descend on Downingtown’s United Sports Training Center the weekend of Nov. 22 for the Philly Freshman Showcase and Philly Freshman Invitational that will cap off Showcase Lacrosse’s fall slate.
