COLLEGES ATTENDING:
The Match will be inviting Division III colleges from around the country to attend the event. A number of coaches provided guidance in terms of format and focus, and initial reaction to the event and the concept of bringing together coaches and players in a targeted, intimate setting with a focus on “The Fit” rather than “The Frenzy” was incredible at our inaugural event at the Hill School in October 2013. The following colleges supported The Match in 2013 and we will post a list of coaches who plan to be in attendance in 2014 shortly (we will also update the list as it grows):

COME TO THE MATCH, COME READY TO LIGHT IT UP!!
