Beginning in the fall of 2012, LB3 Lacrosse will launch Phillie Elite Lacrosse to compete in the most exclusive and prominent recruiting tournaments in the country.
The Phillie Elite team will compete in these upcoming events: Quaker Laxfest, NSCLA Fall Showcase, UPLAX, Crabs 2015 Challenge, MVP. Summer events are: NSCLA Champions Cup, King of the Hill, Brine Shootout, NSCLA Young Guns, Tri-State National, Crabfeast and several others.
Tryouts for Phillie Elite will take place at Germantown Academy on two Sundays: Sept. 16 and 23 (details below). From these tryouts, top players will be invited to attend select fall tournaments; Final rosters of 21-22 players will be announced in November for the summer of 2013 season. Elite level coaches are being assembled for each team and will be announced separately.
JP Banks, Executive Director of LB3 Pennsylvania is enthusiastically anticipating his leadership role with Philly Elite: “Through the strong reputation of my brother Liam, the LB3 program and our ground-floor membership with the NSCLA, we have assembled an unparalleled tournament schedule for these teams.
“This concept creates exceptional exposure for our players – commitment to small roster sizes will guarantee maximum playing time against the top teams in the country and most importantly, Phillie Elite teams will be seen by more college coaches than any other program in Philadelphia. This is a home-run for D1 caliber players. We expect a very big turn-out for tryouts.”
