2017 National 175 Best of the Best Club Team Showcase

HS  and Youth Division Locations
Mitchel Athletic Complex
Cantiague Park

The National 175 Best of the Best Club Team Showcase was conceived on the premise that the strongest programs in the country want to compete against each other in order to establish which program really is the best team in each graduation year across the nation. Much as the efforts of rankings in high school or college lacrosse are not an exact science, neither is this, but we are attempting to establish a team showcase tournament that includes what the National 175 organizers believe are the strongest programs in the country.

Our team showcase is a team event whereby the limited teams invited and attending have been carefully selected. Each of these programs/teams have been recognized as top programs committed to the development of the student athlete and with players seeking to play lacrosse at the collegiate level.

Competition to be seen and recruited by college coaches today is very fierce and continues to grow more and more competitive each year. Interestingly, recruiting is occurring younger and earlier each year. Clearly, the sport of lacrosse is growing very rapidly across the nation. Indeed, places in the past that may not have had much lacrosse are springing up with very high quality youth and high school programs. Talent is now emerging from all over the country.

The Best of the Best Club Team Showcase seeks to bring together many of the best programs around the country to one location, on one weekend, in one showcase, whereby prominence in each graduation year can be sought.

College Coaches

College coaches will be invited to recruit from this showcase and will all be given detailed coaches' handbooks on every player from each team roster attending. We will be providing a list of coaches/schools expected to attend. At this time, we believe that there will be a large number of college coaches in attendance. We would recommend you periodically check our college coaches section for updates.

Well-known, highly accomplished college coaches will also be providing seminars and certain teaching clinics during team off times.


The organizers of this showcase realize the volume of showcase events college coaches can recruit from today. The belief of the Best of the Best Club Team Showcase is that by hosting perhaps the strongest programs in the country at one venue, where many of the top recruits in the country have emerged from, the college coaches will find our showcase to be the most productive 2 days of the summer, and seek to have their college represented there.

This is not a Nassau County sponsored program.
