The 5th Annual East Coast Summer Recruiting Showcase 2018 in the nation's capital is primed to become the premier final summer recruiting event for all uncommitted boys lacrosse players in the 2019-2022 graduation classes. This is one of the official final NCAA allowable weekend to be scouted in-person by D1 coaches in the 2018 recruiting calendar. Don't miss it! Register today!
We will lock in advance at least 24 college coaches but every D1, D2 and D3 college coach will be invited and so we anticipate around 50 college to attend. Committed coaches are posted below.
Most players will participate in our East Coast Showcase on Thursday, July 12 and in the East Coast Invitational Friday, July 13. Players from the Thursday Showcase will simply be combined to create strong 'Showcase' teams for the Invitational on Friday. All teams BOTH days will be staffed and coached entirely by current college coaches.
***NOTE*** If your club team is playing on Friday then you will only play on Thursday, July 12 as part of the Showcase portion. Find information on the East Coast Team Invitational here.

This is an open showcase for all high school players. Invites will start being sent by email starting January 15 and continue until all positions are full. Once we receive your free player application (above) we will review it. We will read your coaches recommendations (if submitted), and then send out invites on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once invited you must submit your password that was emailed and fill out the registration form below. Apply today as this will likely fill up soon.
All Goalie positions are filled for the Showcase - please apply & register to be put on the waitlist!
All other positions for Summer 2018 are open!
Note: We encourage you to apply even if we are closed or have waitlist already as there will be back-outs. We will refund you in full if we can't take you.
We keep this event small and tight to allow for maximum exposure! Only 18-22 players per team. Depending on the age of applicants we hope to separate teams by graduation year so there are 2018/2019 teams and 2020/2021 Teams. That will be determined later to best showcase the player talent.
Close Defense: 4-5
Note: Staff will make every effort to stay on these exact positional numbers but has right to adjust if registration requires.
Playing Time and Substitution Policy and Coaching
Each team is assigned a college or high school head coach for all games all day long. Every attempt will be made to play all players evenly as this is a pure showcase. There will most likely be a set EMO and MDD team which will allow those players more PT but that is only variance. We will run middies 'hockey style' which means one after the other. There are no set lines. It will likely change game to game.
We will post 2018 coaches here once locked...
Thank you to all the players, teams, coaches, parents, referees and friends for making the 2017 showcase one of the best in our history. The weather was perfect, the talent was superb & we hope you enjoyed the weekend overall. Congratulations to all the all stars, team MVPs & our All Star Game MVP! Check out the photos below. We hope we will see you all back next summer!
