The Jacksonville University staff has re-formatted their prospect day template in an effort to maximize competition and education in a day-long setting. The “King of the Hill” style prospect day will provide players to experience a team environment while also learning from the staff of Jacksonville University and their student-athletes. The event will be CAPPED at 100 athletes (8 goalies – 24 poles – 20 attack – 40 midfield – 8 faceoff).
Players will go through a morning of positional instruction, followed by an afternoon of tournament-style games to crown the King of the Hill! Members of the Jacksonville lacrosse academic staff, strength and conditioning, nutrition, and health and wellness will be in attendance to speak with players on the grueling demands of Division I lacrosse.
