ORLANDO, FLORIDA—Team Florida Lacrosse is returning to Palm Coast, Florida for the 14th Annual Elite Summer Showcase. The Florida Elite Summer College Showcase has been the most successful recruiting event in the state of Florida for the last 13 years. The Team Florida College Summer Showcase will be held at the Indian Trails Park Sports Complex in Palm Coast on Saturday May 20th from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm and Sunday May 21st from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity for lacrosse players across the state of Florida regardless of high school affiliation, to get exposure to NCAA Division I, II, III and MCLA college coaches while also having an opportunity to represent Team Florida on the National stage at the Battle of the Hotbeds and Trilogy Lacrosse events up north in late July.
When asked about the Team Florida Summer College Showcase, Ryan Wellner, the Assistant Coach of the Naval Academy states “I have been coming down to Florida for this showcase for almost a decade now. I always look forward to this event as there are so many talented players that are under the radar. Over the years, the great Florida athletes have now become great lacrosse players and Florida is definitely an area that many coaches are trying to recruit from. Team Florida has been pumping out some very impressive college players for a number of years and we at the Naval Academy are seeing that first hand.” Team Florida, now in its 14th year existence, has always been dedicated to showcasing the tremendous talent that Florida has to offer. As Co-owner of Team Florida and Coach of U-19 National Team, Jeff Goldberg stresses that “We take a lot of pride in this event as a company. It’s the backbone to our program which is and always has been, to give our Florida athletes an opportunity to be recruited and play at the next level. Whether it is here at the showcase or on one of our travel teams, we feel we have done a great job of placing our guys in schools where they have an opportunity to succeed both on and off the field.”
There is a lot to be said in Coach Goldberg’s words as Team Florida has been responsible for placing over 100 players into college programs since its inception. Coach Goldberg’s Partner and CEO Tom West states “We have been very blessed to have coached so many great kids and watch them develop into great young men both on and off the field. While we have been so proud of the boys that have gone on to do big things at the next level, it’s the relationships we have built over the years that is easily the best part of this whole process. And the fact that they always come back and want to be a part of Team Florida when their playing days are over they embody the sense of family we have built with this program.”
Clearly, the Team Florida Summer College Showcase is one event you do not want to miss! Mark your calendars and be prepared to join forces with the best the State of Florida has to offer and take advantage of what should be another incredible summer for Team Florida and all that are a part of it.
