From Press Release
ConnectLax, provider of videography and an industry leading on-line recruiting platform, is providing free memberships to participants of The Match™ — a high-value, half-day recruiting showcase for players interested in playing D3 lacrosse. The Match™, which features clinics, full field games and 7v7 sessions, takes place October 30th on adjacent turf fields at the MSI Sports Village in Aston, PA.
ConnectLax will also be on site during the event to capture film highlights for participants. Players in 2017, 2018 and 2019 graduation years can still register for the event and coaches can alert their players to the opportunity by nominating them. BUT SPACE IS LIMITED BY POSITION AND THE REGISTRATION/SELECTION PROCESS WILL END SOON.
Over 35 D3 colleges have committed to be in attendance at the showcase, including Albright, Arcadia, Bryn Athyn, Christopher Newport, Dickinson, Elizabethtown, Elmira, Georgian Court, Goucher, Gwynedd Mercy, Haverford, Hilbert, Hood, Immaculata, Lynchburg, Maine Maritime, Mary Washington, Marywood, Messiah, Montclair State, Mount St. Joseph, Muhlenberg, Neumann, Saint Vincent, Shenandoah, Springfield, Swarthmore, Utica, Wesley, Western New England, Westminster, William Peace, and Williamson. More are expected! Over 50 D3 schools from at least 10 states have attended the event to see 400 players “Light it Up” since 2013.
The event is a proven value and has led to successful recruiting outcomes. The participatory 7v7 format in particular gives players a meaningful opportunity to shine and affords more touches in one ‘Match’ than in a full day at conventional full-field showcases. Put simply, at The Match™ ALL PLAYERS ACTUALLY GET SEEN! An “All-Match” team will be selected.
With the number of coaches confirmed, we expect to have a player/coach ratio of 4:1. We don’t market the event by listing the schools that have been merely invited, unlike others.
The Match™ is also proven with parents. It’s reasonably priced (much less than other showcases). Parents appreciate the mission and the mantra to “Focus on the Fit, Not the Frenzy!” They want their boys to find their matches and have positive/memorable college experiences – athletically/academically.
Players who complete the registration process will be entitled to a free 3-month subscription to ConnectLAX – an online/mobile recruiting platform. Participants will receive a free 6-month subscription and have the chance to order game video/highlights to include on their profile.
We expect to feature a select contingent of D3 prospects from the Mid-Atlantic and other regions eager to play before our coaching audience! Are you one of those prospects? Register and make sure you are in the mix at The Match™!! Do you know of prospects that might benefit from this exposure? Let them know by nominating them!!
Register ASAP, spots are limited by position and in terms of overall participants.
The event will AGAIN be covered live by Phillylacrosse.com/TopLaxRecruits.com.
