Rising DIII Summer Showcase
"I was really impressed with all aspects of the D3 Rising Summer 2021 Showcase. One aspect that really stood out to me was the schedule. I felt that we were able to get multiple personal coaching sessions with fantastic coaches and had more than 3 games. On top of that, multiple chances to talk with coaches off the field about all aspects of recruiting. The facilities were great, and the energy from the coaches and players was high the entire time. An overall great experience." -
Ben R. (player)
"I wanted to let you know that my boys thought your program was the best they have attended. They stressed what a difference it made playing with the team before being watched by 50 coaches. They also loved the box lacrosse and instruction received. Thanks for the quality experience!"

Plenty of lacrosse showcases give prospects the chance to compete in front of top coaches. Many of them, however, simply throw players together for the day and ask them to play their best on a team of perfect strangers. Others ignore the fact that getting a coach’s attention is only a very small part of the recruiting process. We think top prospects deserve better. Our Division III specific, two-day showcase gives teams time to develop chemistry before they play in front of top coaches. Participants will learn both on and off the field during the first day of training, prior to showing off their skills on day two.
The Rising DIII Showcase is part of a family of showcases rooted in 3d Lacrosse's educational, holistic approach to player development. These two-day, two-part programs are intended to change the entire paradigm of showcase lacrosse. Our intensive, advanced training will ensure that players will be at their very best on day two of this event. At the same time, participants will gain insights and learn methods to improve their recruitment candidacy and their role as leaders among their peers.
The numbers don't lie. Our event has helped players and coaches connect. Our most current case study takes a look at the connection between the showcase and the NESCAC.
