Philly Lacrosse Showcase Should Be Major Recruiting Event

Philly Lacrosse Showcase Should Be Major Recruiting Event

By Chris Goldberg,

Episcopal Academy in suburban Philadelphia will serve as the host site November 21 for the inaugural Philly Lacrosse Showcase, a major recruiting event that will feature 210 of the top scholastic boys' lacrosse players in the Mid-Atlantic Region and beyond.

The event – which is being sponsored by – was developed by Andy Hayes, Episcopal Academy head coach and Eastern Pennsylvania Scholastic Lacrosse Association (EPSLA) president. Hayes also co-directed the inaugural EPSLA Showcase in June.

That event brought more than 50 Division I coaches to Philadelphia to watch two All-Star Games and has helped lead to numerous scholarship opportunities for Philly players in the current senior and junior classes.

The overwhelming success of the Showcase caused Hayes to create the Philly Lacrosse Showcase in hopes of further promoting players in the Philadelphia region, while also opening it to players from other areas. This event will feature open registration for any sophomore, junior and senior in the country aspiring to play at the major college level.

The registration process (web site is will open Sept. 1 and close after 70 players, evenly distributed by position, have signed up in each class. Registration costs $130. The players will be guaranteed to compete in three morning games in front of college coaches. The tournament committee will choose the players to compete in the “Fab Forty” All-Star Game for each class in the afternoon.
