Team Attack Cancer Announces Partnership With The Players NIL


PHILADELPHIA, PA –  The HEADstrong Foundation is proud to announce that Team Attack Cancer, its experiential team program that participates in lacrosse tournaments around the country, has partnered with the Players NIL on comprehensive NIL coaching and guidance for its high school members and their families.

“Our goal with Team Attack Cancer is to provide an experience that goes far beyond the lacrosse field,” said HEADstrong National Director of Attack Cancer Ken Clausen. “We are proud to partner with The Players NIL, the leader in the NIL space today, to further our commitment to growing both the player and the person.”

Through this partnership, members of the 2025 Team Attack Cancer team participating in the Lake Placid Summit Classic this August will receive online and in-person coaching on strategies and tools to help achieve their influencer marketing goals through new and exciting opportunities in the NIL space. The Players NIL empowers student-athletes to leverage their influence as a force for good and to drive positive change in their communities, just as Team Attack Cancer does.

“We are honored to partner with the HEADstrong Foundation, notably Team Attack Cancer,” said Mark Koesterer, The Players NIL Founder. “We believe in using athletics to better the lives of the people around us. I want to thank Ken Clausen and the entire staff for this opportunity to support their athletes.”
