The Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse College Association (IWLCA) and Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) announced the creation of the inaugural IWLCA New England Cup in 2014. The 3rd annual event is slated for June 11-12, 2016 at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Team registration opens online October 6th at 10 am EST.
Gothard Lane, IWLCA Executive Director, said, “A large number of teams and student-athletes that attend our large recruiting tournaments in the summer are from the Northeast region of the country and are, in many instances, still attending classes or taking exams. With this concern in mind, the IWLCA wanted to offer these student-athletes an opportunity to attend an IWLCA event closer to home which would not conflict with their school schedule and simplify their travel while saving money for the clubs and players’ families.”
The New England Cup will be played on Saturday and Sunday so as not to conflict with the student athlete’s final weeks of school, exams or added snow days to their school calendar. The tournament will also give the many college coaches in the New England region a chance to recruit closer to their campuses and to save money on travel.
