[quote=Anonymous]My son did the D1 Showcase last year and besides the bad weather for the first 2 hours and getting lost, there were 33 Division 1 College Coaches there with only 140 players playing on 2 fields that were side by side and then the ASG was phenomenal b/c all of the coaches were on that one field so my son wants to go back and has been invited back. This is a great showcase for those looking at the D1 schools. Other than that, the Jake Reed is getting diluted (hardly any coaches there this fall) and the Black Card and Showtime are both already sold out which doesn't leave much options for the division one schools,


I agree with everything you said but I believe the ADRNL Black Card is still taking nominations. Those 4 events you mentions; NXT (in the Fall, not summer) Adrenaline Black Card, Maverik Showtime and the Und1sputed Showcase are great for players looking to play at the div. 1 level with the level of talent that is present and amount of d1 coaches that are present. The Nike Blue Chip has never been the same since their partnership with 3d but it is slowly getting better but no where near where it was 3-4 years ago.

There are still 2019's available at certain schools such as Stony Brook, Marist and the other colleges who tend to wait until players develop but all around, this is a big year that the colleges are focusing on the 2020's primarily and looking for stand out 2021's

Agree with everything you mentioned. My son who is committed to a mid to low tier division one school attended all 4 of those events (Showtime, Black Card, NXT and Und1sputed) and he was seen by several schools there. Years prior, we did the Blue Chip and other ones but they just didn't have enough schools or competition wasn't strong and the landscape wasn't great. If you are looking for D1 exposure, the 4 mentioned are what I would recommend and the Maryland Lacrosse Showcase and LI Lacrosse Showcase at the end of the summer were good to be seen by a mixture of D1,2, & 3 colleges.
The Madlax invitational showcase is a scam and so are the Fab Frosh, Super Soph Showcases. Maybe a dozen coaches there, waste of money, buyer beware.

Looking For Feedback/Opinions: If I have a child going into 9th Grade who is a good player (not amazing, but good), should I signup for a showcase to get some exposure or do you think that is something to wait for? I see this Long Island Showcase at the end of the summer and was thing about signing up for that...Thoughts?

Are you referring to the D1 Und1sputed Showcase or the LI Showcase? My son went to the D1 Showcase last year and other than the rain causing a hiccup the first 1.5 hours, it was great packed with D1 Coaches on each of the 2 two fields with probably 140 players which helped my son with committing to a school that the Associate HC was there and the year before that, we did the Long Island Showcase and that was great especially because it was the first showcase we ever did. That one had around 120 players .

So if you are thinking about either one, both were great but depending on what you are looking for, those 2 are catered to different levels of colleges even though the LI Showcase had like 13 division 1 colleges....the D1 Showcase had 32 D1 Colleges I think with a few local D2/D3 coaches where the LI Showcase had around 20 D2/D3 colleges.

If you are talking about the fl$ one, waste of money; too many players and over hyped . Save your money and do not go, trust me.
