The award is presented annually to a players whose contributions both on and off the field are transforming the landscape of their represented program.

The NCC combines the elements of a non-traditional collegiate lacrosse tournament with a fall festival. Each team is provided with a 20x20ft tent which gathers friends, family, alumni and supporters of each program for an all-day team reception. The event has become a fall tradition in the sport of lacrosse and has raised over $1,500,000 since its inception.
