National & Regional Teams
National & Regional Teams
3d Select offers year-round national and regional opportunities which bring together the best 3d Select players from coast to coast. While these regional and national teams do not practice together all year, the continuity of our Box-Field Hybrid™ Development System sets us apart from many in the industry and allows players from different regions to come together with a shared language and knowledge of offensive and defensive systems. Players also receive the benefit of playing for coaches from different 3d markets, all of whom have played and coached at various NCAA, MLL and NLL programs.
National Team Camp
Our pinnacle national event is the 3d National Team Camp offered in the summer. The 44 top players in three different age groups descend in Lawrenceville, NJ in late June for three days of intensive training and education that culminates in a three-game play-day against some of the top clubs in the country. Instruction is created and led by the top 3d coaches in the country. Additionally, coaches from some of the top colleges in the country are on hand for all three days to work with middle school players.
On the field, players receive an intensive immersion into high-level concepts and skills along with their 3d Select peers. With an intensive focus on team concepts and individual skill development, players come out of the two days of training fully integrated into the 3d methodology and prepared to combat some of the best teams in the country. In addition to on field instruction, there are classroom sessions focused on character development, the recruiting process, and academic expectation.
Players who perform well at the National Team Camp are often invited to represent 3d National at tournaments throughout the year. 3d National has finished in the top three at the US Lacrosse U15 National Championships in previous years. 3d National has also performed well against the top competition in the country at tournaments such as the Big 4 HHH Fall Champions League.
Regional opportunities include 3d Pacific which is comprised of players who 3d directors nominate as "best of the West" from Oregon to California to Colorado. These players have the opportunity to travel to the East coast to participate in highly competitive tournaments and receive maximum recruiting exposure from East coast colleges. 3d Atlantic is comprised of players who 3d directors nominate from Boston to Connecticut to Virginia and Maryland.
