New on the roster of next-level Lax Federation events is the Fall Exposure, November, 18th in West Chester, PA. Why does this matter? It’s a simple event with a lot of value, particularly through exposure.
Let’s talk about exposure. For a young student-athlete, being seen by college coaches is everything. It’s a two-way street. They athletes need to expose their talents to coaches at the next level, while the coaches need to expose their representative institution to the athlete. Plenty of kids have their eyes set on a certain group of institutions, but too often do these athletes not explore all of the potential options that could be available to them. It’s limiting to desperately trying to expose your talents to a particular coach, as opposed to being exposed to as many coaches as possible.

The Fall Exposure is one day, but there’s a lot of chance to be seen. First, you’ve got three games to play. That’s three chances to impress with opportunities to shake off a bad game. Second, there’s a lot of coaches coming. Right now, we’ve got 29 to announce with more on the way. Who? Glad you asked. UNC, Mount St. Mary’s, Wagner, Navy, Penn State, NJIT, Delaware, High Point, Georgetown, Manhattan, Villanova, Princeton, UMBC, Jacksonville, Young Harris, Chestnut Hill, Wilmington University, Tampa, Cumberlands, North Greenville, Lehigh, Marquette, UPenn, Lafayette, Dartmouth, Virginia, Bucknell, Rutgers, Michigan, and Colgate. Now that’s a serious spread.
On to the location. Have you ever seen the Westtown School? Perfectly manicured lawns surround the gorgeous boarding school constructed in 1888. This venue is the ideal stage for the caliber of competition. Centrally located, the best of the best can easily get to the grounds, just 30 miles west of Philly. Plus, nothing is better than having all of the games in one location. It couldn’t get easier.
