WHAT TIME IS THE EVENT? HOW EARLY DO WE NEED TO ARRIVE BY? WHAT TIME WILL IT BE OVER?
Registration will begin at 7 AM. Games will wrap up by 4 PM. If your games end earlier than 4 PM, you do not need to stay for the remainder of the showcase.
WILL I BE PLAYING WITH ATHLETES MY AGE, OR MIXED AGE GROUPS?
Athletes will be placed on a team of roughly 17-20 athletes. You will be played with and against athletes of all age groups (2021-2023).
WHO IS COACHING MY TEAM?
Each team will be coached by an active Division III college coach. You will remain with the same coach & team throughout the day. Not all the coaches attending will be coaching teams. The vast majority are there to just recruit. If a coach you are interested in is coaching another team, they still have several opportunities to see you play as they only coach 3 games throughout the day. Coaches will be on the sidelines recruiting when they are not with their team.
IS THE COACHES LIST ON THE WEBSITE FINAL?
No! Not all schools have finalized their recruiting calendar yet. We are constantly adding more coaches to the list, even in the days right before the event. If there is a program that you are interested in that is not on the list, reach out to them & let them know you will be here so that they are aware and can come watch you play.
IS THERE FOOD OR WATER FOR SALE ON SITE?
For events held at ISP (D3 Winter & Fall), the Indoor Sports Pavilion has a snack bar selling water, gatorades, powerbars, snacks, and coffee.
For events held at Wesleyan (D3 Summer), SportsRecruits will sell water and gatorade on site. Wesleyan also has a small stand where you can get snacks. There are a number of delis near campus we can direct you to.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING? DO I GET A UNIFORM?
We provide you with a D3 Lacrosse reversible jersey for the day. Wear whatever you are comfortable wearing. You will be playing on both turf & grass fields, so bring proper footwear. You must bring all necessary protective gear, along with any other lacrosse equipment you may need.
HOW MANY GAMES DO WE PLAY?
Each team plays 3-games full field in a showcase format. There will not be playoffs. At D3 Fall & Winter, there will be recruiting seminars and Q&A Sessions with college coaches.
CAN I REGISTER TO PLAY TWO POSITIONS?
You can not register to play two positions. You must choose one position at the point of registration. However, if you would like to play multiple positions, we can list you as two different positions in the coaches books to let them know about your versatility. It is likely that you would get an opportunity to play both of those positions at the showcase, but would primarily play the position which you registered for. If this is the case, please email email@example.com.
CAN I REQUEST TO BE PUT ON A TEAM THAT IS COACHED BY A PARTICULAR COACH?
No, unfortunately we are not able to accommodate these requests due to possible NCAA violations.
I AM ATTENDING WITH MY SIBLING/FRIEND. CAN I REQUEST TO BE ON THE SAME TEAM AS THEM?
Yes, you can request to be on the same team as another athlete. We will do our very best to accommodate these requests, but cannot guarantee it. Our number one priority is making sure that teams are balanced, and games are fair. Sometimes we have to accommodate these requests by putting athletes on two separate teams with schedules that compliment each other. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a request.
My High school Lacrosse Team may still be competing in playoffs. should I still sign up?
Certain states do not permit student-athletes to compete in showcases while their high school season is going on. Regardless, we encourage you to sign up & claim your spot in the showcase as soon as possible. Please check with your high school coach if you are unsure about your state’s eligibility rules.
If your team does advance in the state playoffs, making you ineligible to compete in the showcase, we can issue you a full refund or credit towards another event. You must notify our team via email that you will not be able to compete in the D3 Showcase in order to receive a refund or credit. We must be notified by 9 AM on Thursday June 4th. This will allow us to offer your spot to an athlete on the waitlist.
DO YOU OFFER A HOTEL DISCOUNT?
Yes, we do. Please visit the hotels tab to learn more.
WHEN WILL JERSEY NUMBERS, TEAM ASSIGNMENTS, AND SCHEDULES BE RELEASED?
Jersey numbers, team assignments, and schedules will be released a week prior to the event. All college coaches attending will be provided all of this information, and updated immediately with any changes. It is possible that your team assignment could change in order to keep teams balanced at each position should other athletes drop out of the showcase. However, once you are assigned a jersey number, it WILL NOT change.
WILL I BE LISTED IN THE COACHES BOOKS? WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS LISTED THERE?
All athletes & their information will be listed in the coaches books. Coaches books are sent to be printed 2 days prior to the event. If you are added to the event off the waitlist after that time, coaches will be sent your information & we will provide them an amendments page detailing this information long with any other last minute changes.
In order for all of your information to be listed, you must complete your SportsRecruits profile. You received a confirmation email after you registered, which included a link to your SportsRecruits profile. If you were not already a member of SR, we created a free profile for you. Navigate to the Profile tab of your profile, select Edit from the sidebar, and fill out all the information in the Essentials section. This information, along with a link to your SportsRecruits profile, will be included in the coaches books.
Do I need to “Get verified” To BE LISTED IN THE COACHES BOOKS?
If you are not a paid member of SportsRecruits, we created a free profile for you upon registration for the D3 Showcase. “Getting Verified” is part of the process of becoming a paid member of SportsRecruits, and having full access to our online recruiting platform. This is NOT required in order for your information to be listed in the coaches books. Simply update the information on your profile and you are all set.
Why should 2021 athletes attend the 2020 d3 fall showcase?
The D3 Fall showcase was opened up to uncommitted seniors this year out of request by our Directors, the head coaches at Gettysburg and Haverford Colleges. The D3 Fall showcase happens in early October, well before the application deadlines for the vast majority of colleges. For uncommitted seniors, this showcase can be one last opportunity to showcase your ability, and earn new opportunities to play the next level.
If a coach is interested in you, they will have ample time to contact you and give you all the information you would need to begin the application process for their school. Division III programs in particular are always looking to add more athletes to their rosters. Coaches have expressed interest in recruiting 2021s this year.
