Meet Matt

Matt Snyder had over 17 years of experience in the lacrosse industry before joining the LGS family. Prior to accepting the position as a Lacrosse Portfolio Manager, Matt coached at the high school level for 15 years, founded Uptop Tournaments and started the Eaglestix Lacrosse Club, and has served as a volunteer coach for the JMU Women's Lacrosse team. (It's safe to say, Matt knows a thing or two about lacrosse.) Matt was thrilled to become a part of the LGS team, and we couldn't be more lucky to have him join our all-star roster of employees.

How did you first become involved with LGS?

I had been coaching in the club scene and running Uptop Tournaments in the south while Legacy was starting to make a push for events in different regions. I have worked in different settings with some of the people at Legacy so it was a perfect fit. 

What separates LGS from other companies?

As a company we are very innovative and passionate about what we are doing. We are really on the cutting edge of event management and that's what I find exciting. Working with people with big ideas and implementation strategies is very fun.

If you could go anywhere in the world tomorrow where would you go? 

I think it would have to be the moon. I think it would be awesome to just go bounce around and see something only a few people have seen. Plus my boys love to collect rocks so that would be a cool place to bring them rocks from.

What motivates you to come to work every day? 

Lax is life! I love the sport. It has given me so much I love giving back to the game. It doesn't feel like work when you really enjoy what you do.

 

 

IF YOU COULD HAVE DINNER WITH ANY THREE PEOPLE WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE? 

This is a tough one but it would definitely be Stan Lee. I would love to see how he thinks and creates such great ideas and super heroes. The next would be The Rock - first I love professional wrestling so I'd love to talk to him about that and then how he's transformed into a movie star. Third would be Gordon Ramsey- I think he would have some amazing stories and I am sure The Rock could talk him into making dinner for us!

What are you most excited about right now?

I would say I am most excited about the growth of all our events. We have some great events, locations and programs at our events that make them fun and exciting.
