Helping You Get To The Next Level
Beginning with 14 committed players in 2009 (3d Lacrosse’s first year of operation), we have been dedicated to matching motivated players with appropriate college experiences from both an academic and athletic perspective. Player advocacy continues to be a primary company goal and most players will find a lacrosse home during their search, resulting in a placement that combines their athletic abilities with their academic interests and achievements.
The 3d Lacrosse network of Select coaches is dedicated to training players and coaches in the nationally renowned 3d Methodology, and that clearly sets 3d Lacrosse apart from other organizations in the industry. Our combination of exceptional coaches who are carefully groomed, superior training for players with consistent instruction, and thoughtfully planned tournament competition is unique and unlike anything most players have ever experienced in the club world.
