The Boys Philly Showcase, now in its fifth year, is widely considered North America's premier recruiting event. This is a two-part event that features an individual player Showcase on Saturday and an elite high school and club team competition on Sunday. All players in the Saturday event are divided up and placed on teams coached by established coaches from some of the top high school programs in the area.
The Philly Showcase will feature an individual competition for sophomore and junior elite boys high school lacrosse players.
