Team Stars & Stripes vs. Team Maple Leafs
Along with 2 Other Potential International Teams to Compete
Last year, Nat175 introduced an international battle between Team Stars & Stripes (US) vs. Team Maple Leafs (Canada). The excitement and competition was so exciting that the demand this experience has been overwhelming.
This summer, Team Stars and Stripes will once again compete against Team Maple Leafs. Due to demand, we are further considering having players elect to play for Team Shamrocks (Ireland) and Team Gladiators (Italy) as we assemble the international field to compete. After teams are selected, the teams will compete on July 27-28th in a fantastic international competition in upstate NY.

“Playing for Twist gave me the opportunity to play the best young lacrosse players in the country, while exposing me to college coaches to make my dreams of playing Division 1 Lacrosse come true. I started playing Twist with the hope that I may be able to earn a college scholarship. Twist did everything right in terms of getting me to a college where I could achieve my academic and lacrosse goals. They exposed me to all the best recruiting tournaments in the country with access to coaches of all levels. They prepared and coached me to play my best at all the tournaments we attended. They provided coaches who not only knew the game, but also are great role models to help develop athletes into great young men. The organization, from top to bottom, is run with the upmost professionalism and class. I am proud to be a part of such a great family that helps young men achieve their lacrosse and college related goals. I would highly recommend this organization for any player who wants to take their game to the next level and get exposed to college coaches of all levels. “
