The Crown Lacrosse Classic announces partnership with Major League Lacrosse

Charlotte, N.C. – The Crown Lacrosse Classic announced today a partnership with Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league.

“Chris Schiller spent 12 years in Major League Lacrosse,” said MLL Commissioner Alexander Brown. “And we are thrilled to support him as he brings the Crown Lacrosse Classic to Charlotte, where some of the best our collegiate game has to offer will be on display.”

MLL expanded into Charlotte in 2012 with the Charlotte Hounds, which became the league’s seventh expansion team. In partnership with MLL, the Hounds will host their monthly youth clinic, the Junior Hounds, on March 9 at The Sportsplex at Matthews between The Crown Lacrosse Classic game days. The event will also showcase top MLL prospects, such as Zach Goodrich (Towson), Jack McCulloch (Cornell), and Chris Sabia (Penn State), who are competing in the round-robin event.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with an organization that I spent 12 years playing and coaching in,” said Chris Schiller owner and founder of Southern Select Lacrosse Showcase. “By partnering with the Hounds and MLL, the Crown Lacrosse Classic is bringing the ultimate experience to Charlotte lacrosse fans. For me personally, it’s exciting to partner with the league that has played such a significant role in my career.”
