From Press Release
Registration is open for The Match™, a recruiting showcase focusing on strong players targeting Division III colleges.
The event, open to boys in 2019-2021 graduation years, will be held Sunday, Oct. 28 at the MSI Sports Village in Aston, PA. The Match™ is designed for players who are strong Division III candidates – athletically and academically.
The Match, run by Heritage Lacrosse and Maple Zone, has been well-received by college coaches, players and families and has resulted in scores of successful recruiting outcomes/commitments.
Over 500 athletes and coaches from 50 DIII schools have participated in the event since 2013.
The event philosophy is simple — FOCUS ON THE FIT, NOT THE FRENZY™! Leverage your lacrosse talents and get the best education you can, while contributing and competing at a high level.
Players/Parents: Interested players are asked to visit the website and register as soon as possible. Space is limited by position; total enrollment is also limited.
*Each participant gets a 6-month membership to ConnectLAX and access to film. The event will be taped by ConnectLAX and film will be available digitally to every D3 coach in the nation through ConnectLAX. Participants that do not have ConnectLAX through their clubs can create a highlight film at a reduced rate and those who do have a profile can use the film to make their video.
*The event will be covered live by Phillylacrosse.com/TopLaxRecruits.com websites.
