From Press Release

NXTsports, directors of the Philly Showcase Event Series, are proud to announce the Philly Showcase Camp summer schedule for 2012. The inaugural Philly Boys Showcase Camp will take place June 15-17 at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia and the second annual Philly Girls Showcase Camp will take place July 17-19 at Haverford College.

The Philly Showcase Camps are based on two principles – Education and Exposure. First, each Showcase Camp will feature a staff of 12-to-16 prominent college coaches chosen because they enjoy educating, coaching and working with players to improve their games. The Camps will also feature educational seminars off the field on topics including the college recruitment process, NCAA rules, strength training, and nutrition.

Second, Showcase Camps are designed to allow participants to showcase their abilities in front of the college coaches through game play and small-group instructional sessions.

Said Peter Lawrence, Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach at the University of Hartford and co-director of the 2012 Philly Boys Showcase Camp, “The Philly Showcase Camps came about because there are coaches out there – myself included – who want to help high school players achieve their college lacrosse goals. I believe that players will have a greater likelihood of achieving their goals by attending a camp where they are educated on all aspects of the college process, not just thrown into games without learning anything of use.”

Philly Showcase Camp participants will 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 will additionally have the experience of living on a college campus and experiencing for a few days the life of a college lacrosse player.

Registration for the Philly Boys and Girls Showcase Camps is open at ShowcaseLacrosse.com.
