What makes the Iron 44 D3 Combine a special experience?


Official Combine Testing

As stats and metrics become a more vital part of the sports world at every level, we have partnered with some of the top professionals in the field to conduct our Combine Tests at the Iron 44 D3 Combine.

Players get to experience what it is like being evaluated as an athlete, not just a lacrosse player. It is often a shock to student-athletes when they get to the next level, to see the level of off-field training and testing. Our Combine helps to prep the players for this and put them in the competitive environment they will experience in college.

Tests include 40-yd dash, 5-10-5 shuttles, vertical and broad jumps, and shot speed.

College Level Practice & Elite Coaching

While games are a great way to be seen and a necessary element to recruiting, they often don't provide quality interaction and coaching between the college coaches and the players. The coaches LOVE to see how a player receives coaching and how they transform throughout a practice session.

Many events offer just games. Some offer a short "training session" or "team practice" which often does not provide as much value as it should. The National Lacrosse Combine is committed to providing the highest quality instruction and on-field experience for both players and college coaches. That is why the day starts with a FULL college level practice between 1.5-2 hours. Coaches get to see how the players work in a practice setting and how they receive and listen to coaching. Players get to see what a true college practice is all about.


Competitive Game Play

Competitive games are the final piece to the all encompassing D3 Lacrosse Combine! Players get to showcase what they developed during the college level practice setting and go to battle, all while being coached by top Division 3 coaches. Coaches rotate between teams so that every player gets to experience different coaches throughout the games. 

Given the talent level traditionally seen at the D3 Lacrosse Combine, every game looks like an All-Star game! Games mean something at the Combine. These are not "meaningless" games. Coaches coach to win, players play to win.

Top players get recognized with awards from Nike, Cascade, Maverik, along with special media recognition from the D3 Lacrosse Combine and our media partners.

Why the D3 Combine?

While we do have Division 3 coaches attend the Iron 44 National Combine later in the summer, there is no specific D3 focus at that event. It is a great way to get in front of a wide range of NCAA Coaches, but the D3 Combine is ONLY D3 coaches and geared towards players pursuing a D3 college lacrosse career. Along with competing with and against other players on the same track and in front of the coaches you want to see and who want to see you, the Recruiting Discussion Panel is a tremendous learning experience for players AND parents to learn more about the Division 3 process and experience. If you have ANY interest in playing lacrosse at the Division 3 level, this is a must-attend event! PLUS: It is limited to ONLY 44 total players meaning YOU WILL BE SEEN!

"My son is a 2024 and attended your event on Monday. He said it was far and away the best event he’s ever attended. He loved the combine portion of the day and really learned a lot from the great coaching staff you put together. He said the level of competition was top notch and looks forward to attending more Q4 Lacrosse events in the future." - Parent
