CHARLESTON, S.C. (Dec. 10, 2013) – The field for the inaugural NPL Showcase is filling up quickly and a limited number of spots remain to round out age groups. There are currently 31 committed clubs from 13 different states. Those specific clubs can be viewed below.
Scheduled for March 7-9, 2014, at Heritage Park in Las Vegas, the NPL Showcase is a national interleague event featuring top U-16, U-17 and U-18 boys teams from across the country, providing an excellent opportunity for teams to face high-quality competition and players to be scouted on a national stage.
“This event continues to build the NPL platform,” said NPL General Manager Chris Baer. “In addition to meaningful league play, the id2 Program and PDP, and the NPL Finals, clubs and players can now benefit from a national showcase event that will provide teams with challenging – and different – competition, as well as additional scouting opportunities.”
Preferential acceptance is based on final standings from the 2012-13 NPL season. Each team will play one full-length game per day for a total of three games. Games begin 9 a.m. on Friday, March 7 and conclude by 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 9.
The fee is $950 per team and applications are available here. Interested teams should contact your Membership Services Representative or NPL General Manager Chris Baer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
