The Philly Boys Showcase Camp was started by coaches who genuinely want to help high school players achieve their college lacrosse goals by educating them on all aspects of the college process. Two coaches who embody this philosophy and the co-directors of the Boys Philly Showcase Camp – Peter Lawrence (University of Hartford), and Taylor Wray (St. Joseph’s University). Showcase lacrosse campers leave better educated not just on the lacrosse field, but also better educated about the college recruitment process, NCAA rules, strength training, and nutrition. Campers literally get to experience a couple days in the life of a college lacrosse player. Click here for more info and registration.
