Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Announces New Fall Showcase Event
The Call Back Academy will debut November 9, 2019
Elkridge, MD (May 8, 2019) — Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) announced today an extension to the high-successful Under Armour All-America Lacrosse program, the Call Back Academy. The event is an opportunity for the nation’s top high school lacrosse players — both boys and girls — to continue their UA All-America experience. This event will be open to players who were selected to play in their regional “Call Back” game, including those players that represented their region in the Underclass Tournament or Uncommitted Showcase.
The inaugural Call Back Academy will be played at the River City Sportsplex, an all-weather facility with 12 artificial turf fields located in Midlothian, Virginia. Participants will arrive on Friday, November 8 to receive custom apparel and accessories from Under Armour as part of the event orientation. Activities on Saturday, November 9 will feature on-field instructional sessions led by premier college coaches as well as playing in showcase games. Players will also participate in educational seminars on topics that include: strength and conditioning, NCAA recruiting and sports psychology.
“We are thrilled to offer the Call Back Academy for those players that participate in this summer’s Under Armour All-America tryouts,” said Lee Corrigan, President of CSE. “A key feature of the selection process at the regional tryouts has always been narrowing down the player pool to a final call back game. This game pits the best against the best as a way of assisting
the regional evaluators determine the final roster. Traditionally the call back games also provide an extremely valuable opportunity to impress the college coaches that fill the sidelines. Clearly the players that make the call back game are very talented and will have the opportunity to play at the next level. Therefore, we felt it was appropriate to provide them with an experience unique to Under Armour All-America that combines educational programming along with the chance to develop their game.”
The 2019 UA All-America Call Back Academy is limited to the first 600 invited boys and girls that register. Invitations will be extended to players that are selected for the Call Back game and Uncommitted Showcase in the two divisions in each region, for each gender — the Command Division and Highlight Division. The Command Division will showcase players from the 2022 and 2023 high school graduation years, while the Highlight Division will feature the 2020 and 2021 players. UA All-America conducts tryouts in 12 different regions across the country: Baltimore, CONNY, Long Island (NY), Midwest, Philadelphia, New England, New Jersey, South, Southwest, Upstate New York, Washington, D.C. and West.
Registration will open in July for the Call Back Academy. Visit www.UnderArmourLacrosse.com to learn more.
