Another 24 parent here.. What recruiting platform(s) should my daughter focus on. Other parents on our team have mixed opinions, just wanted to get the take from those here. FYI, She is on one of the better teams (not "top tier"). There seems to be new ones that pop up, but If someone can mention the few that coaches really seem to use as their hammerhead that would help us a great deal. Thank you all.
Talk to your clubs Recruiting Director. It’s most important to use her preferred platform since she’ll be the person talking to clubs on your behalf before September
Plenty of good options none really better than another. Sports recruits most popular.
Some clubs don't have a recruiting director...what do we do in that case?
If your daughter was any younger, I'd say find a new club. If not, try to find someone who can give an honest, informed assessment of your daughter's recruitability. This is a combination of skills, Lax IQ, size, speed and desire for financial help.
Then target 20 or so schools. Starting writing to their coaches and plan to attend some of their camps in December and this summer.
To be totally honest, it is more difficult if you don't have anyone advocating on your behalf before contact day, but it can still be done. One key difference for your daughter though is that her offers will likely be more linked to camp or showcase performance than her performance on her club team. Meaning -- you will need to spend a lot more time and $$ driving to camps;
The teams without recruiting directors are empire,91, flg, blue devils, recon, icon, etc. There is no surprised that they have very few recruits go to top school considering they don't put money or time into the recruiting process for the girls. YJ, Jesters, TG, Legacy are the most invested in the girls. If you have time to go, go now.
Only a handful of players ( 4-8 ) from any club will receive offers from Top College Programs.
Depends on how you define Top program. Many girls, especially from private schools, are only targeting top academic schools which is Duke, Stanford, Candy Hopkins, Ivy, Patriot league and a few others. Without knowing girls, its hard to say how many had top 20 offers.
For instance our club just had a girl turn down offers from Syracuse and Florida to go to Davidson. Another turned down Penn State and Stony Brook to go to Lehigh. Remember not all girls are trying to get the best lax school, they are looking for the best school
