FIRST TIER EVENTS ANNOUNCES CITY SERIES TO BE LIVE-STREAMED BY @CONNECTLAX WITH PLAYER HIGHLIGHTS, TAGGING + FILM SHARE
First Tier events, following the success of the Five Star Prospect Camp at IMG Academy (FL) on Jan. 2-3, has launched their City Series to be live-streamed by ConnectLAX. In addition, ConnectLAX will tag players in the showcase film so coaches can easily scout the top plays of every player. ConnectLAX shares player tags alongside film to every college coach, maximizing the exposure for players while creating efficiency for coaches.
US Club Lax will be using the City Series as their baseline for Regional Girls Player Rankings! "We are excited to work with First Tier Events on their 5 Star Prospect City series." says Denis Noonan, CEO. "They are offering unbelievable skill development for High School athletes across the country. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to highlight and showcase these athletes across our media platforms."
“We are really excited about this opportunity for the girls. We are aiming our efforts of the City Series to those towns/areas that do not traditionally have lacrosse events in their backyard. We want to allow every player the opportunity to get out and play and be able to come away with not only film and recruiting exposure, but a great experience. We can't wait to see everyone on the fields!” says Lindsay Byrne, Events and Operations Director for First Tier events.
The City Series provides high school athletes a full day of training with college coaches along with both small sided and full field games. With college coaches training and scouting at this event, they’ve tailored programming to maximize interaction with and exposure for players.
"Really excited to have the opportunity to work with girls all over the country and direct the evaluation process at these City Series events who are looking to take their game to the next level. There are future stars in each of these cities and I’m pumped to see their talent shine!” says Kylie Ohlmiller, Owner KO17 and US National Team Member.
“We are thrilled to partner with First Tier Events on their newly formed City Series. This new event series serves an important purpose to grow the sport of lacrosse in areas that don’t normally have highly visible, top-notch events. At New Balance, we want to partner with groups like First Tier Lacrosse that run world class events while also helping to grow the sport. We are also excited that New Balance athlete, Kylie Ohlmiller, will be a part of this series and will be a valuable resource for all the participants.” says Jared Hager, Brand Manager.
Players receive film, a professional highlight video done in minutes by ConnectLAX, and their top plays ID’d by ConnectLAX editors. Families don’t have to search for their plays, meaning creating their highlight video is as simple as selecting which plays to use from the event (mixed in with any other film). And importantly, when coaches see a play that catches their eye, they can instantly filter to every play by that player.
