12pm – 5pm
MSI Sports Institute in Aston, PA
The name “The Match™” is intended to reinforce an overlooked reality in today’s frenzied recruiting scene. While many high school players dream about playing Division I lacrosse, the truth is that spots are limited, the competition is great and not every great player is going to find his way onto a Division I roster. Many players (and parents) recognize this reality late in the pursuit, but not until after devoting time, emotion and resources and experiencing a level of frustration in the process.
Aspiring players should reach for the stars. But at the same time, they should be realistic, strategic and proactive, focusing on colleges that might be the best fit for them academically and athletically. Strong players have an opportunity to leverage their lacrosse talents to get the best education they can, while competing at the highest possible level. And such a college experience can prepare a student-athlete for life!
Put differently, the “Fit Is It”! Often the fit is the best school with a lacrosse program that promises to permit the player to contribute in a meaningful way sooner rather than later.
We have scheduled our event in late October to avoid the established fall recruiting events and the hype of the November circuit. Participation in those events may still be a part of a player’s game plan. But our hope is to attract uncommitted players, including proverbial “late bloomers” or those who are still “under the radar,” who are considering playing high caliber lacrosse at the Division III level and want to compete in front of high caliber Division III coaches.
Below is a list of colleges already planning to attend The Match in 2016. We will continue to update this list as more colleges register to attend.
