Sandy,  June 6, 2013 – College Prep Lacrosse returns for their fifth summer lacrosse “recruiting” tournament in the Wasatch region with the 2013 Rocky Mountain Showcase on June 21st and 22nd. This event is designed to give players a taste of the challenges ahead as they strive to find a college lacrosse program which fits their game.  Coach Nadelen has experienced the talent we can produce when as an assistant coach he worked with tow of the best lacrosse players to leave the Beehive State when Matt Mehrer, Bingham HS 2002 and Kyle Fiat, 2001 transferred to Towson after a year or two (Fiat) in Utah programs.
“Utah has a reputation for turning our players who are well grounded, disciplined in the classroom and the first ones to practice every day,” remarked event organizer and Westminster College Head Coach Mason Goodhand.  “Matt and Kyle did a lot of the generations of player to follow by leaving a strong impression on the Towson program.”
Joining Coach Nadelen in the sideline search for the next Utah lacrosse legend will be Coach Jason Lamb, who is the newly appointed Head Lacrosse Coach at a new D-III program at Southern Virginia University.
“Jason built a national championship BYU lacrosse empire from 1995 to 2010,” said Goodhand. “He found his first NCAA opportunity at Adams State University in 2010 where he started an NCAA D-II program in Men’s and Women’s lacrosse. In 2012 he assumed the role of Director of Lacrosse Operations at Notre Dame University.   Now, after two seasons in South Bend, Coach Lamb and his family head to Virginia where he will pioneer the start of a new NCAA D-III program.”
“I am very excited to compete in the Capital Athletic Conference, which is home to some of the top Division III lacrosse programs in the nation,” said Lamb. “We’ll work hard to be competitive within the conference with the goal of building Southern Virginia men’s and women’s lacrosse into nationally recognized programs.”

  • The Rocky Mountain Showcase is part of the Sticks of Steel Comp League this year.  This league which runs from June thru October gives players regular competition but at a slower pace. At $125 for up to 16 games over four months, this league allows players to enjoy some competitive “off-season” lacrosse while exposing them to NCAA opportunities as well as the MCLA programs of the region.
  • Our goal is to help raise the bar of competitiveness without requiring extensive travel and expense.  Players join players from other HS programs for fast fun action played under the new NCAA game rules.
  • Players can find a team in need of players by visiting the web site and clicking on the “CONTACT A TEAM” tab.  Several private travel clubs are also joining the league.
