Philly Boys Showcase Camps by NXT at Saint Joseph’s University, now on two dates: Session I for 2016s and 2017s on June 24-26, and Session II for 2018s and 2019 on July 27-29 at St. Joseph’s University. 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. Campers literally get to experience a couple days in the life of a college lacrosse player. Also, 2017 and 2018 Fab 40 All-Star selections gain automatic admission to the Philly Showcase and 2019 Fab 40 All-Star selections gain automatic admission to the Philly Freshman Showcase.

Ted Spencer’s Blue Chip 225 Recruiting Showcases offer college recruiting and skill training for boys from Rising Freshmen to Rising Seniors on the campus of the University of Massachusetts. 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.
Sessions for 2015: Rising Freshmen Grad 2019 July 6 – July 8; Rising Sophomores Grad 2018 June 29 – July 1; Rising Juniors Grad 2017 June 29 – July 1; Rising Seniors Grad 2016 July 6 – July 8, 2015

It is for this reason we assign coaches to stations, not to age groups. This ensures campers will receive instruction from all of our talented coaches vs. just one. The concentration is on instruction rather than watching/officiating scrimmages: At multiple stations per hour, we teach fundamentals and mechanics and provide drills to take away from camp to perfect these skills on your own.
