Coast-to-Coast, NJAC Merge into Coastal Lacrosse Conference

PITMAN, N.J. — The New Jersey Athletic Conference and Coast-To-Coast Athletic Conference are excited to announce the formation of the Coastal Lacrosse Conference, an NCAA Division III single-sport men's lacrosse conference.

The three NJAC men's lacrosse-sponsoring schools (Kean, Montclair State and Stockton) will join three C2C men's lacrosse schools (Christopher Newport, Salisbury and Mary Washington). The six-team conference will start play in Spring 2023. 

The formation of the Coastal Lacrosse Conference will give men's lacrosse student-athletes in the six programs the opportunity for weekly and yearly athletic and academic honors, a steady conference schedule, and — after the NCAA-mandated two-year waiting period — a chance to play for an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III men's lacrosse tournament.

The conference's regular season will consist of a single round-robin schedule. The conference will conduct a postseason tournament for the league title with tournament winner earning the conference's automatic qualification to the NCAA Division III men's lacrosse tournament starting in 2025.

Conference branding and a league website are currently being developed and will be finalized over the coming months.
