Athletes will have the opportunity for selection to an All-Star Game featuring the Top 40. There will be a Q&A session for parents and NCAA D2 coaches.
According to Marty Ward, Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach at Florida Southern College, “There are 68 colleges and universities that provide the perfect blend of academics and athletics. The National D2 Showcase places student-athletes front and center with NCAA D2 Men’s Lacrosse and broadens their selection of schools for consideration.”

We encourage players to keep options on the table, develop their athletic fit preference and get their game in front of schools that match", says Gage Mersereau of ConnectLAX. ConnectLAX will also amplify the exposure of players via their event social feed.
