The event features 114 top boys’ players from around the country playing three games each on six teams. Players paid for the event at cost ($75) and all proceeds from the Adrenaline Black Card Showcase will go directly to research for prostate cancer through the Prostate Cancer Foundation. The donation will be made in the name of Jack McGetrick, a life-long lacrosse enthusiast as a player and coach.
Coaches from nearly 50 colleges had committed to attend the event earlier this week.
McGetrick founded and most recently served as the Head Coach at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky. Jack had previously coached at Hartford University in Connecticut, where he was named NCAA Division I Coach of the Year in 1997. McGetrick was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2008 and showed courage throughout his battle with the disease, which eventually took his life in October 2010. McGetrick’s love of the game and passion for both coaching and mentoring young men serves as inspiration for all those who knew him.
Also, industry sponsors, Adrenaline Movement, Cascade, and STX, will be providing gear packages. The Black Card Showcase has set itself apart from other similar recruiting events by offering this amazing opportunity to attendees at cost. Our belief is that these elite players have gotten to this level as a result of years of hard work and great coaching, and it is our goal to reward this effort by providing a high caliber event that truly serves their best interests.
The Black Card Showcase is being held in conjunction with the National Scholastic Club Lacrosse Association Tournament on Saturday and Sunday at the University of Delaware.
