Mission Statement: Heritage Lacrosse Overspeed Academy is designed to transform a coach-referred group of high school lacrosse players into elite college-ready players by focusing on bio-mechanics, lacrosse IQ and playing the individual and team game at hyper-speed.
There are many exceptional athletes capable of excelling in lacrosse at the high school level through any combination of size, skill, and speed. When these same players get to the college level, all the other players are just as athletic. The true separation of superior collegiate players from average players is a function of skill, biomechanics/technique, lacrosse IQ, and being able to play the game hard and FAST.
Heritage Lacrosse Overspeed Academy has been specifically designed and created to address this void in the marketplace. The faculty has been hand-picked and represents some of the very best minds in high school, club, college, pro and international lacrosse. The inaugural summer 2016 program is in the following format, and is designed to follow the summer club season:
What:College-level training of 40 highly select players per group (10A; 16M; 10D; 4G = max of 40 players per group)

This is an IDEAL clinic for face-off guys who want to compete against other quality face-off players for 90 minutes while receiving individualized instruction.
The Philly Face-Off League is run by John Bodnar and Mike Dolente.

The Mid Atlantic Showcase is an individual recruiting event for boys rising freshman (2020s) through rising senior (2017s) that gives them the opportunity to showcase their athletic skill set, lacrosse IQ, and their ability to adjust their game to the skill sets of those around them. College Coaches are given the ability to evaluate a player’s athletic skill set while also getting to assess their academic profile as it relates to their college/universities academic profile. We are expecting over 70 college coaches to attend this year’s inaugural Mid Atlantic Showcase with the University of Maryland already confirmed to attend.
Players will get the opportunity to get a 1-hour training session in the morning before the showcase games begin from the coaches in attendance learning new position specific skill sets as well as team concepts testing your lacrosse IQ and ability to enhance your game. College Coaches will also take this time to tell you what THEY are looking for throughout the day and what YOU can do to get yourself recruited.
Teams will be made up of 20-21 players (2 goalies, 4 defenders, 2 lsm, 1 FO specialist, 8 midfielders, and 4-5 attack man) and compete in THREE 50 minute showcase games using NCAA Rules.

The ELITE-42 Showcase Game:
At the conclusion of the day, the top 42 players will be selected after our evaluations have been talented.

National 175 Summer Showcase, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), 110 8th Street, Troy, NY 12180, July 25-27th, 2016. Welcome to the 5th annual 2016 National 175 Summer Showcase hosted at RPI. This is the premier lacrosse recruiting showcase that provides the platform for the most talented players to showcase their abilities in front of college lacrosse coaches seeking to recruit players from all over the lacrosse community. Based on recommendations from our college coaches and some of the major club team directors we have made a decision to move our Flagship National 175 Summer Showcase 2016 event to the PRIME recruiting dates. The recruiting calendar is always a challenge to maneuver, but with an expected dead period surrounding the July 4th holiday likely to be announced in the coming months it is our belief that the weekends in July will be monopolized by the Club team tournaments and that the individual showcases will be better positioned for college coach and top players attendance in the weekday venues. https://natinvite175.sportngin.com/register/form/051476190“>Click here to apply.
