This week we completed our 3 week summer tour where we had 12 teams this summer 240 players from across the Globe. When you add in the Spring events, such as the USPHL NCDC Showcase and the Pro Am Pre Draft. We had in total 17 teams in all totaling 340 players. That is amazing. So many players sought to be part of these Eels post-season events.
All of our players came to garner the incredible experience of playing with and against the top players from around the World. The Eels provided its players with dozens of practices from its Eels junior coaches, Prep School coaches, and college coaches. In addition to the showcase games, the Eels administered a number of scrimmages to better prepare its players for the Showcase games. The Eels teams were very competitive in the showcase games. In the end, the players were seeking unmatched exposure and that is what they captured. There were so many coaches present from the Junior Prep and college ranks and so many of our guys were able to secure spots for the upcoming season.
The Eels have been one of the longest-standing programs competing in the Pro Am Series of Showcases and are indeed honored and proud to be part of this most prestigious and time-honored event. We wish all of our players who joined us success in the upcoming season.
