Curious to how the recruiting process is going for the 2022's?
Very fast. Shocked how quickly considering coaches haven't seen the girls play live in a year. Much faster than last year.
As a club coach who has witnessed this yearly for the past 7 years I am shocked how quickly it has gone this year. And shocking since the IWLCA was pushing for a delay until next summer. I wonder what changed? It's terrible for girls from smaller or newer clubs because it's been very obvious that college coaches are just recruiting girls based on club recommendations and not on actual player performance. Don't get me wrong, there have been some very deserving commitments but there has also been more than usual head scratchers. And many very talented girls left out of the commitment pool so far. This has definitely been brand new territory for even those of us who have some experience!
