The popularity has skyrocketed every year with both players and college recruiters, with more than 20 Division I schools attending last year’s event. With that in mind, NXT decided to expand to two showcase camps this summer at SJU.
The reason behind adding a second session was easy. In the first few years of the Showcase Camp, we’ve had four age groups from rising freshmen to rising seniors. In recent years, we saw a trend of more rising freshmen attend the event to prove themselves against elite competition. Sometimes, though, it can be tough for a freshman to go up against a senior. The freshmen could compete – Griffin Gelinas was a Fab 40 All-Star that committed to Syracuse only months later before attending the Philly Freshman Showcase – but NXT thought a change was appropriate.
This time around, we we will have Session I for 2016s and 2017s from June 24-26. This allows coaches to look at only those two age group of players to showcase their skills and get a chance to improve their game along the way. From July 27-29, we will host the first Session II for 2018s and 2019s. It follows the same format as Session I, but just for a younger age group.
NXT is very excited to see a new crop of players and coaches for the Showcase Camps. Once again, every player is placed on a team coached by a Division I coach and every All-Star gets automatic admission to the highly regarded Philly Showcase in the fall. 2019s All-Stars are offered guaranteed admission into the Freshman Showcase.
