Player Level Categorization
High School and Club Coaches will verify and endorse the level of each player requesting endorsement. Players will be categorized as Elite or Varsity level to best balance the teams and keep the play at the 225 Showcase at a very high level. All players should have the ability to go on and play at the collegiate level. All teams will have an even balance of Varsity and Elite players.
The Elite level player has demonstrated the ability to play at the Division I level. He has most often been selected for all-star teams, all region and all state teams and in your opinion deserves pre-eminent consideration from coaches from the nation's top D1 colleges. He is a standout in his school, club, region, state or national program. He is fiercely dedicated to taking his skills to the maximum and has already been identified by his school or club coach as having the skill or ready potential to perform at a national competitive level.
The Varsity level player aspires to play college lacrosse. The Varsity Blue Chip athlete is among the best players for his high school team, plays for a strong club team, and includes college lacrosse in his future whether it is Division I, II, or III. He is a serious lacrosse player and brings determination, self-discipline, and commitment to his sport.
