The Maryland State Lacrosse Coaches' Association is proud to host the FREESTATE SHOWCASE in June 2022. The MSLCA has hosted this prestigious showcase/tryout event since the late 1990's. The MSLCA FREESTATE event is the longest running lacrosse event of its kind in the nation. For more than 25 years the MSLCA FREESTATE event has been one of the top showcase events in the country. The MSLCA's sole goal of the event is to provide the public and private school boys' lacrosse players and affordable and fair showcase event. The FREESTATE SHOWCASE is a can't miss event for the summer.
The FREESTATE SHOWCASE is a progressive showcase which will feature two divisions: Rising Senior Division (2023s) and Underclass Division (2024s/2025s). All uncommitted 2023s, 2024s, and top 2025s should attend the FREESTATE SHOWCASE. The MSLCA will provide a team of evaluators to evaluate and rank the players at the showcase and invite back the top-rated players from the player rankings to play in the FREESTATE TOP 44 Games. The FREESTATE TOP 44 Games will feature the top 44 2023s in the FREESTATE RISING SENIOR TOP 44 Game and the top 44 2024s/2025s in the FREESTATE UNDERCLASS TOP 44 Game. The FREESTATE TOP 44 Games will be evaluated and the FREESTATE TOP 22 RISING SENIORS and FREESTATE TOP 22 UNDERCLASSMEN will be announced as the MSLCA ALL-FREESTATE TOP 22 for their respective division.
