F&M is currently ranked No. 5 in the Division III IWLCA Coaches Poll. The Camp’s final staff members are being finalized and will feature a total of 12-14 lead instructors.

The Philly Showcase Camp combines exposure opportunities with an education focus that aims to emulate the life of a Division I player. Campers will go through three days of college-style practices and games in addition to positional clinics, a recruiting seminar, off-field training sessions and a classroom experience in order to improve each camper’s skills beyond simply game situations.
