National Invitational 175 DIII Winter Showcase

Jupiter Community Park
January 11-12, 2014 

Blue Devil Elite has partnered with the National Invitational 175 to bring the most highly regarded recruiting showcase to Jupiter, FL.  The National Invitational 175 DIII Winter Showcase was developed to compliment the NI 175 Fall and Summer Showcase events, which are viewed by the college coaching community as the best recruiting events in the country.  The purpose of this event is to bring coaches from the most academically and athletically prestigious DIII schools, as well as the best players from around the country to a warm weather location, in the middle of the winter.  By eliminating the need for players from the Southeast to travel to events in the Northeast, players/families, particularly from South Florida, realize a great amount of savings in terms of time and money. This two day showcase event will be held on January 11-12, 2014 and will offer a special opportunity for players in 2 recruiting grades to be seen by what we expect to be a very large number of Division III college coaches.
