From Press Release
At least 30 D3 colleges have committed to be in attendance at The Match™ D3 Recruiting Showcase on Sunday, October 30th at Maple Zone’s Sports Village in Aston, PA.
D3 schools in the mix at The Match™ currently include the following: Albright, Arcadia, Bryn Athyn, Christopher Newport, Dickinson, Elizabethtown, Elmira, Georgian Court, 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, Wesley, Westminster, William Peace, and Williamson.
The Match™ is a high-value, half-day recruiting showcase (noon to 5 p.m.) featuring players (2017, 2018 and 2019 graduation years) targeting D3 colleges. Over 50 D3 schools from at least 10 states have attended the event to see 400 players “Light it Up” since 2013. 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 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.
With the number of coaches confirmed, we expect 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.
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.
Directors expect to feature a select contingent of D3 prospects from the Mid-Atlantic and other regions eager to play before the 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.
