Project Midwest Lacrosse is a group of the top clubs in the Midwest made up of the following programs: Resolute (OH), Project Missouri (MO), Team Illinois (IL), Alpha Lacrosse (WI), Omnia (MI), Minnesota Loons (MN), No Excuses (TN) and LKS (KY). The goal of this partnership is to bring together top, like-minded clubs in the Midwest to provide athletes unique opportunities, host events & collaborate on travel teams. Project Midwest began in 2017 as a pathway for the best lacrosse players in the Midwest to come together and compete in top national tournaments. In just three years, Project Midwest has become one of the premier and most recruited clubs in the United States. With players going on to compete in every major college conference in the country, the USA U19 National Team and the Under Armour Senior All-American game, the program’s reputation of helping young men from the Midwest achieve their dreams is proven. Through this robust alliance, Project Midwest is uniquely positioned to use its collective resources to optimize player and family experiences.
Project Midwest offers National Team opportunities to member's players using two unique platforms. PMW is excited to be a member of The Circuit, powered by Nike, to offer players between 5th and 8th grades the chance to compete in the most exclusive and competitive environment. The PMW Youth National Teams will participate in 2 events throughout the year with the hopes of being one of the top 4 teams in the country where they will attend the Circuit Final Four, to see which group is crowned as the best team in the country! Our rising 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders will participate with Team Project Midwest at the Naptown Challenge, to compete against the other top clubs from around the country. PMW hosts a Fall and Summer Invitational that is open to any non-member clubs that would like to participate. These serve as two of the largest recruiting events in the Midwest. Additional offerings to all players in the Midwest include both a Fall and Summer Recruiting Showcase for all high school aged athletes. There will also be a Youth Showcase for all 5th - 8th graders, prior to the Summer Invitational, that will serve as the tryout for The Circuit.
