I'll kick off the 2019 thread with a question.

Does anyone find it CRAZY that our daughters who have not started high school are being recruited for college?

Mine is likely not in the first wave of recruiting that has already started, but my guess is she will be getting offers next summer given what has happened with some her 2018 friends of similar ability.

With the early recruiting happening earlier and earlier, there is already a lot of pressure on girls and their families in the 2019 class. At our club there are already some with "offers" and we are being told that we need to be proactive now with our daughter.

I'm having trouble wrapping my head around it and think we are doing our daughters a disservice by allowing this process to get out of hand. We are going to try to wait as long as possible and also try to take as much pressure off of her as possible, but it's hard. What was supposed to be a sport played for the love of the game, feels like it is becoming a job at way too young an age.

Let your daughter set the pace - talk to her about colleges and in general schools that she realistically wants to go to and play for. Let her take ownership of as much of the process as possible - don't try to shelter her from it. Let her embrace it on her own - don't force it on her. Remember - they cannot contact you - if you are not interested in the recruiting thing just let it happen and don't do anything. You are still in control - people keep forgetting that. Don't let what you hear from the outside world about so and so getting a full ride to Syracuse, Northwestern or to whatever influence your actions. My daughter is not in that top tier of players either - but, she is all set and is locked and loaded to take this on when it comes. "Prepare your child for the road, not the road for your child."

What is Integrity? Odd name for a travel lax program? Director must have a lot to live up to.

I know that I will probably get slammed for this - but, yes, FUN. It's almost too easy to lose sight of that with this totally hypercompetitive "college scholarship" thing on most peoples' minds. I feel truly blessed that my daughter totally loves it and has fun every time she picks up her lacrosse stick. I cherish those times more and more now when she asks me to throw the ball around with her. I have flashbacks of the little tiny thing years ago - spending more time doing ground balls then catching. Now - I need to pay attention or she'll take my head off. Yes, make it fun!

The director has a resume' a mile long, from high school, summer club to Naval Academy club coach to NCAA coach at division 1 and 2. Integrity is a club team based in Anne Arundel county Maryland, near Annapolis. They're really good, and well known down here. Their 2019 teams and their 2020 team are VERY good. 202's lost one game all summer, in all A brackets (if there is such a thing at the 2020 level).

He or she is correct. They are the 4th or 5th best team in md. Good program.

Yeah but they are one of the clubs whose drop off from their A team to B team is dramatic.

It would only have been funnier and ironic if a club like Elevate named their club Integrity. Elevate my ego, elevate my wallet.....

People are catching on to how Elevate is run and operated. I saw and spoke with many people that are fed up, mostly with the lack of ethics and respect Elevate displays towards their own families.
