Lehigh Valley Rising Junior Showcase, Boys Grade 11, Wednesday July 25th – Friday July 27th, at Lehigh University
Camp Description: The Lehigh Valley Showcase is designed to provide rising high school juniors from the Lehigh Valley and across the nation with advanced skill development in a highly competitive, tournament style, playing environment. The showcase will provide a platform for players to display their skills in front of college coaches from Divisions I, II, and III, as these coaches will be invited to serve as instructors and also as recruiters. As one of the last showcase events of the summer, this is a great chance to be seen before the 2014 recruiting season gets rolling (September 1 is the first time college coaches can communicate with a PSA per NCAA rule). Off the field, players will take part in strength and speed training clinics (results will be given to take home at the end of camp), recruiting & academic seminar, and a leadership/character building seminar. The mission of the Lehigh Valley Showcase is to help campers gain visibility within the recruiting landscape, while helping them grow as players and as people.
