The IWLCA STX Select Showcase was held on Thursday, July 19, at the River City Sportsplex in Chester County, VA. The new event was added to the Capital Cup in 2018 to provides athletes with an additional opportunity to showcase their talents in front of college coaches in a more intimate setting. The format of the event included skill-specific clinic stations and scrimmaging. 161 prospective student-athletes from the 2019, 2020, and 2021 classes participated in the event.
“The Select Showcase provided coaches with an opportunity to work directly with prospects and interact with them on a personal level," said Liz Grote, head coach at Bowdoin College. "We get to work with the participants, who have traveled from all over the country for this event. It's a unique setting that helps to develop relationships, and that’s what recruiting is all about.”
The IWLCA STX Capital Cup runs from Friday, July 20 through Sunday, July 22, at the River City Sportsplex and Clover Hill Athletic Complex.
