This traditional US Lacrosse event had a different look and feel in 2010 as it moved to Florida for the first time and became a part of ESPN's RISE Games. The event featured 96 of the top high school players in the country, representing all corners of the United States, competing in a four-team format over three days.
The ESPN Rise Games are a weeklong, multi-sport event that are the culmination of ESPN's 20-year history of covering high school sports. ESPN RISE also represents ESPN’s commitment to engage and elevate high school athletes by providing them with recognition, resources, information and inspiration that can motivate them to improve their skills and achieve their goals to be the best athletes they can be. US Lacrosse and the RISE games give amateur athletes from across the country a way to RISE to the next level of competition.
In addition to the US Lacrosse Boys' High School Showcase, the US Lacrosse U-15 National Championship (boys and girls) as well as the inaugural 2010 US Lacrosse Girls' High School Showcase are also a part of the ESPN RISE Games.
