Halo LAX, a division of the Sports Facilities Companies, announced their 2021 showcase season to players and coaches from around the nation. Over the course of the 8-event season, hundreds of high school athletes are expected to showcase their lacrosse talent for NCAA Division II and Division III college coaches as well as compete for a coveted invitation to the 2021 Halo LAX College Invitational.
“At the heart of the Halo LAX showcase experience is the genuine opportunity for recruits to interact on the field with college coaches,” said Dave Webster, Head Men’s Coach at Dickinson College. “These events host a limited number of high school players to provide individualized instruction and team competition. College coaches really enjoy this environment and the players have been overwhelmingly positive for this format and style.”

According to a 2018 study by the NCAA, lacrosse is the fastest growing collegiate sport over the last 15 years. To put it in perspective, men’s lacrosse experienced a 95% increase reaching 350 teams from 2000 to 2014 with Division III representing the majority of programs.
A unique feature of each showcase is the opportunity for individual instruction and one-on-one direction from coaches recruiting for their rapidly-growing programs. Also, standout athletes from each showcase will be invited to the Halo LAX College Invitational – the ultimate lacrosse showcase featuring top players and attended by both DII & DIII colleges. The 2021 College Invitational will be held at MapleZone Sports Village in Aston, PA on December 4th and 5th. Athletes may also attend the College Invitational by nomination from their current club or high school coach to participate.
“Our showcases provide lacrosse athletes the unique experience of interacting face to face with college recruiters as well as the opportunity to play in our exclusive College Invitational,” said Joel Franklin, National Director – Lacrosse for Halo LAX and the Sports Facilities Companies. “Halo LAX is committed to supporting the future of these athletes and providing a path to college.
