The Match™ (www.matchlax.com) — a novel recruiting showcase/skills focusing on elite players targeting Division III colleges. The event, in its third year, will be held on Sunday, October 18th at The Hill School in Pottstown, Pa.
The Match™ is specifically designed for boys in 2016/2017/2018 graduation years who are (or have the potential to be) strong Division III candidates – athletically and academically. All interested players may submit their applications on-line. High school coaches are encouraged to nominate players they think might be well suited for the event, all of whom will receive further information about the opportunity. Participants will be selected on a rolling basis based on coaches’ recommendations and player credentials. Invitations are extended with the goal of optimizing player mix by position. The Match™ will afford players the chance to showcase their skills in drills, in 7v7 short-sided matches and several full field games before an array of Division III coaches. The novel 7v7 portion of the event is designed to maximize player touches and give participants a meaningful chance to display their skills on offense, defense, in transition and in the goal – all in a fast-paced setting. The Match™ has attracted over 300 players from eight states in the last two years. Close to 50 Division III colleges have attended the showcase, including Alvernia, Bowdoin, DeSales, Dickinson, Drew, Eastern, Elizabethtown, Elmira, Franklin & Marshall, Haverford, Lycoming, McDaniel, Mary Washington, Merchant Marine, Messiah, Muhlenberg, RIT, Scranton, Swarthmore, Ursinus, Western New England, Widener, Williams and York. Feedback from past events has been glowing, with players, coaches and parents commenting on the format and the event’s contrast with the many recruiting events that are significantly less participatory.
