if true.... if anyone can sell a program, its DK so for that purpose alone, its a home run for Holy Trinity...works for him too as he will get full use of a private school facility to run Elevate and his various $$programs...if it were a public school, he would have problems getting facility for his exclusive use...nice work, DK

And add on the $$$$s he will make from the HT kids that will join Elevate so they get playing time at HT. Money, money, money! He could take that job for free just given the fields they will give him for elevate which he will make money off of and the additional kids that will join elevate.

Putting aside those boiler plate answers, pick a school. Would it have the balance of a potential National Championship and great academics, would it have the absolute best academics with likely no/small chance at winning it all? Would it be best lax program bar none? Just curious.

My daughter likely doesn't have this luxury, but I was just curious what people think.

I think I would say Duke, Northwestern ...but then I think, could you really say no to Princeton, Stanford or Harvard? And then I wonder what the awesome experience at a Maryland or UNC must be like for those girls and I go in circles.

What do you say?


I would say it's not your decision...it is your daughters. Visit the school multiple times and have her make the choice. All the schools mentioned are great, but it has to be the right fit for your daughter athletically and more important academically. Let's not forget socially either, the feel and the atmosphere has to feel right for her. She can visit many times before making a decision. Good luck to her!


You're an [lacrosse]. if you think for a minute you have no part in the decision you are wrong. You still paying! It has to be a good fit for the person yes but the poster clearly asks put all of those in a vacuum answers away and give an answer.

STAN UNC DUKE USC (warm weather for us). Notre Dame Any Ivy Lousiville.


3 USC's and a Stanford. Sounds like Cali is on the rise. Interesting that no one has picked Northwestern yet. Is it weather? Or do you think the Amonte magic is gone?

I enjoy a discussion like this much more than the nasty stuff. Anyone with daughters at any of these places? What's the actual experience?


Other programs have caught up and Northwestern has a reputation of only allowing girls to take certain majors and the weather is chilly!

Roster majors don't seem to be that way ... See a few Pre-med and few engineers, including a player who started every game. Seems like most top places r like that. Just looked at Stanford too. Only a couple "real" majors there. Other than Ivies, who doesn't steer majors?

While I can't comment about any "honest" clubs out there, my daughter has moved on and they have already had more practices from fall to date than probably the past 2 years combined at Elevate. Since DK lost the relationship with the HUB as well as field space in CSH, go ask the 2019 girls what they are doing this Winter. They are scrambling to put practice sessions and teams together on their own in order to get themselves ready for their freshmen season. I was a "Buyer" here unfortunately for one too many seasons and would tell anyone to "Beware" that you get little value for the money you spend here.

Anyone that disputes what I said above please back it up with facts that support Elevate is doing otherwise for the girls smile

Sounds like an honest, non-bomb throwing assessment. We are making a move for my younger daughter next year if things don't improve with her current team, and (if you feel comfortable with it) could you share what team you chose that is better than Elevate? (If not, I understand not wanting to create a SH*& storm on the thread). I was looking into Elevate, YJ or maybe Legacy.

Heard the Elevate college bus tour was like a mini van tour as there were no girls. Heard they had like 7 or 8 kids. That is a far cry from where they were 2 years ago. Amazing how far they have fallen!

Why do you care? Strange that you obsess about a group of girls going to vis it colleges. Worry about your own kids business!

Would have to agree, what does it matter to you? Don't play for elevate but I think that's a great idea and probably a lot of fun. Sounds like a great way to expose even younger age girls to college campuses. Not sure what your beef is with these guys but I think it's time to move on.

Soooooo funny. I have a picture in my mind of DK pulling up with a few girls to a major college with the minivan all decked out in Elevate colors, bumper stickers and the Elevate logo on the side of the van. In all seriousness, a lot of people have dropped Elevate for various reasons. It will be a challenge to rebuild what they had a couple of years back. Not sure what changed.

Not sure I would agree that overall numbers are down but there are more clubs and startups then ever before.
