Players will have the opportunity to be instructed and individually assessed by coaches from top Division I, II and III programs. Showtime Lacrosse is also committed to helping participants become the best student-athletes they can be.

The Maverik Showtime Lacrosse — “National Recruiting Spotlight” is the brain child of ESPN color commentator Paul Carcaterra, Joe Ceglia and Mike Springer who all achieved All-American and National Championship careers at Syracuse University. Paul, Joe, and Michael have teamed up with Aly Josephs, an All-American and three-time National Champion at Northwestern University, to create this premier recruiting event. All four of Showtime’s directors have stayed immersed in the game of lacrosse as coaches at the high school and collegiate rants, nationally recognized camp directors, broadcasters, and professionallacrosse players.
