The new website, ShowcaseLacrosse.com, will provide information and online registration about all upcoming Showcase events, including the upcoming 2010 Philly Showcase boys’ and girls events’ on November 20-21 at Episcopal Academy.
“The Philly Lacrosse Showcase has become an established part of the fall recruiting landscape, and we wanted to create a website that makes available all the information needed by participants, their families, college coaches, and lacrosse fans,” said Andy Hayes, President of NXT Sports.
