Recruiting Process

Have We Seen You?

The 3d Blue Chip talent search and recruiting process is a year round operation in the U.S. & Canada and we have members searching out talent in every region of the country. If you have questions regarding the recruiting process in your region, or you are a coach that would like to recommend players, please reach out to the following representatives:

West Region Rocco Romero 3d Blue Chip Regional Manager rromero@3dlacrosse.com

Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Regions Tim Bigelow 3d Blue Chip Regional Manager tbigelow@3dlacrosse.com

Midwest Region Pete Hoffman 3d Blue Chip Regional Manager phoffman@3dlacrosse.com

South Region Bart Farinholt 3d Blue Chip Regional Manager bfarinholt@3dlacrosse.com

Almost every player invited to 3d Blue Chip is selected through one of the following processes:

1. The first piece of finding the nation’s top players lies in our year round 3d programming. With offerings from coast to coast throughout the year, 3d coaches are constantly evaluating and looking for top players at all of our 3d camps, tournaments, and every other clinic or program in field and box lacrosse that we run. Additionally, 3d coaches are continuously coaching/attending non-3d tournaments and events, as well as regular season and playoff games, and search for talent in these arenas as well. 3d also adds Matt Rowley’s nationwide team of 3d Rising scouts & writers to the mix!

2. The second, and equally as important, source of top athletes in the U.S. & Canada is coaches’ recommendations. The 3d Blue Chip Recruiting Team is perpetually receiving recommendations from coaches, reaching out to trusted programs for nominations, and searching for new schools & clubs from which we can identify and recruit the best players in North America. In only its second year, 46 U.S. States and Canadian Provinces were represented at 3d Blue Chip! To the coaches: our sincerest thanks for your help finding top players and giving them this opportunity. We couldn’t do it without your support.

3. Lastly, any athlete graduating in 2017, 2018, 2019, or 2020 can apply to 3d Blue Chip. The application will be sent to the corresponding Regional Manager, who will then reach out the club and/or school coach to discuss the applicant’s skill level, athleticism, and lacrosse IQ. We have literally hundreds of players attend each year after submitting an application.

Applications will be open in August.
