Coaches in Attendance
College Coach Clinicians Committed for Summer 2017
At NXT, our philosophy is to only publish the coaches or programs who will be running skills clinics, lecturing, or working at the event in some capacity. Out of respect for coaches, we do not publish the list of college coaches attending to recruit prior to the event. However, we do publish and share the College Coach Sign-In Sheets after the event. Our list of historical sign-in sheets at Showcase Events is the best in class. Please note, the college coaching staffs listed above have committed to working at Showcase and MVP Events for the Summer of 2017. However, we do not guarantee that each institution will be represented at every single event
Now in its second year, the Philly Summer Showcase continues to provide Exposure & Education for young athletes. Our Showcase events have historically been the most well attended events of the year. The Philly Summer Showcase is in Downingtown, PA and is played on 4 lighted turf fields, assuring weather is not an issue.
Each participant will receive a Nike gear package, and will be coached by a prominent high school coach from the surrounding area. In addition to participants' team coach, College Coaches will lead all skills clinics and recruiting talks, providing players with an opportunity to work directly with them.
Finally, NXT has worked hard to establish our independent evaluator point system for the Fab 40 All-Star Game, held in the Stadium, following the mornings' games. Players will be evaluated throughout their 3 games, with a chance to compete and gain recognition among coaches in attendance.
For any questions and/or for consideration to compete in future events, please contact Brett Manney.
A player's application will be considered complete once it includes BOTH a coach nomination and player application. Either a coach or player can initiate the process. Respective party will receive an e-mail invitation to complete the application once it has been started. Received applications and nominations will be available in My Dashboard once you are logged-in.
The pride of Showcase Lacrosse is our process. We collect both an Application as well as a Nomination from the athlete's high school or club coach. This allows us to learn about the player through their highlight film, in addition to gauging their abilities from the perspective of a coach. We then review all Application/Nominations, and send emails with instructions to register.
If the selections from the prior round of the Draft do not register before the dates below, their spot will no longer be guaranteed. This is a first-come, first-serve basis registration.
