“Big12 Lacrosse has evolved our recruiting events to provide the maximum level of exposure and competition at the right venues. Based upon our extensive experience working within the club lacrosse space, many events are too large or logistically scattered and just don’t provide a realistic platform for NCAA programs to evaluate players at recruiting events. In addition, our experience is that the optimum platform for NCAA coaches to evaluate is in a highly competitive environment; and hence our interest in ratcheting up the level of competition with the introduction of the North American Club Lacrosse Championship”, notes Kevin Mayer — Executive Director — Big12 Lacrosse Events.
