The Philly Boys Showcase Camp was started by coaches who genuinely want to help high school players achieve their college lacrosse goals by educating them on all aspects of the college process. Two coaches who embody this philosophy and the co-directors of the Boys Philly Showcase Camp – Peter Lawrence (University of Hartford), and Taylor Wray (St. Joseph’s University). Showcase lacrosse campers leave better educated not just on the lacrosse field, but also better educated about the college recruitment process, NCAA rules, strength training, and nutrition.

There are two sessions: June 29-July 1 for Rising Sophomores, and Rising Juniors and July 6-July 8 for Rising Seniors and Rising Freshmen. The showcase includes a player evaluation session, two college level team practices, and seven games will comprise the schedule. All Stars will play in an 8th game which will be streamed online as a FREE LIVE BROADCAST. Ending on Wednesday afternoon with everyone playing in a Championship Round, this format allows both players and coaches the time necessary to recover for their commitments for other recruiting opportunities. Classes will benefit from increased college coach presence but will have separate housing, training and games. Each class will have its own all-star game. Both player and coach will benefit from 8 fields in one central location providing easy access for coach evaluations and player performance. Combining age groups will draw more coaches than ever, and the new format will allow coaches to maximize their recruiting efforts by attending a session of Blue Chip 225.
