String League Season 3 is starting up for 2017! The best stringing series on the planet is back for another go, with more partners, more judges, more contestants, and more chances for YOU to get recognized as one of the best stringers in the game!
Welcome to String League Season 3!
I will be serving as the host of the show, and as the commissioner of the league for this season, so I’m taking off my judge’s hat, and looking my prettiest on camera.
12/10 would watch.
Wait, what’s String League?
If you don’t know what String League (SL) is already, now is the time to find out. First watch this video from Joe at Throne giving a behind the scenes look at some of the filming for Season 3:
SL is an annual contest, where the best lacrosse stringers come together for a challenging series of contests and competitions. Some are serious, and others are a little more silly, but ALL of them relate to stringing amazing pockets in lacrosse heads. It all culminates into a grand final, and we crown our yearly champion. Past winners include the one and only Lacrosseman, as well as the hyper talented FLStringer! If you don’t follow those two guys on Instagram already, do it now. Well worth it.
Here’s a little more info on String League Season 3, from Dustin Dohm, the founder and owner of String League:
In order to keep raising the bar this season was opened up to multiple sponsors on a per episode basis. There are returning legacy sponsors that have been supporting the league since season 1 including Stylin Strings Lax, East Coast Dyes, STX, & Throne. New sponsors signing on include Nike Lacrosse, Adidas Lacrosse, and Inside Lacrosse taking our episode tally to 7 up from 5 total last season.
The judges panel for each brand includes Greg Kenneally – ECD, Joe Williams – Throne, Tyler Bortner – Stylin Strings, Myles Jones – Adidas, Hiana Thompson – Nike, Kyle Devitte – Inside Lacrosse, & Kyle Harrison – STX.
If you make it to the top 6, you will compete in a 7 week tournament aired on the Stylin Strings Youtube Page as well as 1 minute clips on String League Instagram.
