and if I am wrong correct me, but you don't get an email or a letter detailing the offer, it is still a VERBAL agreement. Nothing is in writting. It all happens via conversations, whether on the phone or in person. If it happens on the phone it would be if you have talked with them prior.

I have yet to meet anyone who received an offer where they haven't been seen by the coach (outside of the 1%ers).

REMEMBER IT IS AN OFFER NOT A CONTRACT (FRO BOTH SIDES), SAY YES IF YOU ARE UNCERTAIN. ENTERTAIN AS MANY AS YOU CAN.

Someone said Plan B. that is a horrible way to say it. With 10 or so commits a year they arent all 1st day calls but to call them plan B is wrong very wrong, there is a list of players but plan B come on. if you get a call or even a text id say you'd be on their list pretty high. But now is also a good time to send the schools a letter of interest. Hit the ground running.

remember regardless of what anyone tells you - you are in the drivers seat. You and are parents are in control. dont let coaches or directors steer you where they think you should go over where you want to go Dont poo poo school that arent so good athletically remember it is the academics.



You sound like such a braggart .

If you haven't visited a school will the coaches offer scholarships over the phone or wait until they get you on Campus? Do they send the offers via email ? What if you say you haven't been there yet but it's high on your list. Kids do have dream schools, even if they haven't seen them in full.
I really hope my club director/coach are working hard behind the scenes on behalf of my daughter, as she's gotten numerous "interest" emails and visited quite a few schools before the rule change. Since the rule change it has been hard to get a grasp on the true interest, and all we really hear is "be prepared, the phone is ringing and your daughter should narrow her list down."
Exciting and a little stressful at the same time.
good luck to all.

No question that it is a little stressful More for the parents than for the kids in my estimation. I also don't like the "plan b" moniker. Schools will be contacting kids on the top of their list. That list is going to be widely different for most schools. Since a number of the top lacrosse schools already verballed a number of kids, there shouldn't be many suprises. The interesting thing will be if schools start bringing in girls to visit before giving offers. With the change to allowing official visits in junior year, it would be good to see the girls get that opportunity to visit before having to act. That's the way that it should be in my opinion.

It is plan B. People are delusional. There are very few exceptional players and a ton of very good players. Those very good players start getting traction when the few exceptional turn down schools. Its not a bad thing. Own the fast that most of our daughters are just really really good.

September 1st is around the corner...

Has anyone heard anything interesting?

Are calls being pre-arranged, home visits planned, official visit dates reserved?

-a curious bystander

Hard to tell what can be learned from the opening of Sept 1st for the 2020 age group, as far as chaos at midnight. Many of the top schools were done with this year recruiting class, and many of the blue chip players were already committed before it shut down. Certainly some players have bloomed into top recruits that did not show or commit before the shut down, so you will see some scurry activity. The real interesting year will be when hunting season opens on the 2021s next year.

I wonder if we'll see much in the way of de-committing/switching?

I think there are lots of Top schools that have quite a few slots allotted for the 2020's this weekend. And of course, "top' schools could be relative. it should be about education first, and from what I've read the top ranked academic schools that are top 25 lacrosse schools have plenty of slots to fill.

Sept1st Midnight stories?
Was there any significant roster spots open on the top teams? I heard of at least one high profile player decommitting and having trouble with any good landing spots as most of those top programs are done on those big commitments. The bulk of recruiting is still going on for most players/programs. Kids who play fall sports and need to visit schools are extra stressed.

If my kid was playing high school field hockey and was looking to commit to a D1 lax program I dont think she would be stressed out about missing a field hockey game to go visit a school, go to a camp or clinic at the college she desired.......... but that's just me. Its called prioritizing, something you may want to teach your stressed out kid.

It is called a team sport and its called being committed to your team. Your selfish attitude is why this sport is such a mess. Go to goal....

Try thinking out of your own little priority box! Not all coaches are ok with kids missing games or even weekend practice.

Really? either the player misses one game to visit a College ( I wouldn't want to play for an educator who doesn't understand this) or the entire season..your childs future is way more important than the results of an LI field hockey game...

So what's your priority - committing to a D1 lax school and the future college and education of of your daughter or upsetting the field hockey coach you will never see again? It's in your hands now. Think long and hard!You seem like the type of person that struggles with your Starbucks order.

Oh, I understand, Your daughter doesn't play for a HS state championship FH or Lax team where the coach is the same person. You never see your FH coach again, others do. You seem like the type of person who will stuggle to pay for college without lax

No reason to miss a game to go visit a college. Learn to manage your time and communicate. I am sure that college coaches love recruiting players who are selfish enough to leave their TEAM hanging and miss a game.
