December 13, 2021

WILMINGTON, Mass., Dec. 13, 2021 – Six of the nation’s top lacrosse clubs – 3D New England, 3D Georgia, the Annapolis Hawks, Steps New Jersey, NXT LC and Nationals LC – are headlining the list of teams who will be competing in the Mid-Summer Championships at The Proving Grounds Facility in Conshohocken, PA, in June.

The Championships will be played from June 23-24 and will include a total of 12 clubs per grade year for the years 2023, 2024, and 2025. This invitation-only event is uniquely played under college rules. College coaches will also be in attendance.

“The 3Step Lacrosse club brands are excited to announce their participation in the inaugural Mid-Summer Championship hosted by NXT sports,” said Greg Waldbaum, Vice President of Lacrosse at 3Step Sports. “In a sea of tournaments that oftentimes look and feel the same, the opportunity to participate in a best-in-class event at a premier facility breathes life into the grinding summer circuit. Playing with visible shot clocks and NCAA rules allows college coaches to evaluate players in an environment that more closely mirrors the experience the players are preparing for. We are excited to start this new event with many of our teams and brands that are consistently ranked in the top 20 across the country.”

All games played will include an 80-second shot clock, crease dives, college officials, 60-minute, four-quarter game slots, electronic scoreboards and bleachers.

The Proving Grounds is a state-of-the-art all-turf facility located just outside of Philadelphia. There are eight fields and each team has a four-game guarantee and will be competing in a championship format.

Next Level Video will film each game professionally from an elevated angle and game film and highlight reel packages will be available.

College coaches who attend will have a college coaches tent, book, and social available to them in addition to the opportunity to see some of the nation’s elite clubs and prospects compete.
