Registration remains open for The Match™ — a high-value, half-day recruiting showcase featuring players (2017, 2018 and 2019 graduation years) targeting D3 colleges. Players can register, but coaches can alert their players to the opportunity by nominating them. Space is limited by position so please register/nominate soon:
The event will take place from 12-5 p.m. on Sunday, October 30th at MSI Sports Village in Aston, PA. The showcase is staged on three adjacent turf fields, providing for an intimate, convenient and efficient setting for coaches. The 7v7 “Matches” are particularly unique from a player assessment standpoint; no other showcase provides players with so many touches and such a meaningful chance to shine. And no other showcase is as tailored to the desire of coaches who are hoping for a fruitful afternoon from a recruiting standpoint.
The event is a proven value and has led to successful recruiting outcomes. The Match™ features player clinics and both ‘short-sided’ and full field games. The participatory 7v7 format gives players a meaningful opportunity to shine and affords more touches in one ‘Match’ than in a full day at conventional full-field showcases. The venue, MSI Sports Village just outside Philly, features adjacent turf fields. It’s an intimate setting and put simply — PLAYERS WILL BE SEEN! An “All-Match” team will be selected.
Over 50 D3 schools from at least 10 states have attended the event to see 400 players “Light it Up” since 2013. A robust number of colleges have already registered to attend (25 thru 9/30, more are expected)! We plan to have a player/coach ratio of 5:1 (or better). We don’t market the event by listing the schools that have been invited, unlike others. Coaches find the venue / format efficient and effective. It’s in the testimonials!
The Match™ is also proven with parents. It’s reasonably priced (significantly 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. D1 lacrosse is not for everyone and most parents understand that it’s not the Holy Grail!
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!!
