Was there a roster overhaul on Heros Green this fall? They've struggled to win games against teams that normally they would beat handily.

Not rocket science. Other teams caught up to them just like everyone said they would 2-3 years ago. It's not that they got worse, but other clubs improved.

IWLCA Question

My daughter's team is playing this weekend in IWLCA. I am looking at her bracket and the rest of the brackets. I see several with two or more of the teams I consider elite in them and I see many that are comprised of teams that I have never heard of. Unfortunately, my daughter's bracket falls into the latter category. Will there be coaches at all of the games or will the coaches only watch the YJ, Monster, Liberty, Steps, Heroes, Capital, M&D, TLC, Skywalkers... games? I am sure the event will be fun and worth wile regardless but I am hoping that my daughter and her team will be seen. Thank you.

All teams will get looks. There are very good individual players even on some of the lesser competitive teams and the coaches know this. There will also be many coaches from less competitive college programs who would be not spending their time wisely if they only look at the top players from the powerhouse teams. Reality is, just as the students are often over shooting for interest of top programs, there are also programs over shooting for interest from top players. There will be plenty of players and coaches, with opportunities for all.

Coaches will not randomly show-up. Send the top ten on your daughter’s list e-mails, send video, that will increase the chances they come watch. Be realistic, find the right mix of academics and level of lacrosse.

Last two posts are great advice. Send an email to schools you and your daughter are interested in and they will comes see her at some point. The process is not hard. If your daughter plays hard and works her tail off, she will get noticed. Maybe not this weekend but the next or the one after that. All the coaches are not going to mnd vs sw every game. Just my two cents.

Here is a quick list of other considerations to put that school list together, there are others online...

When determining the college or university you may wish to attend, the following questions are helpful:

Do they have a women's lacrosse program and what level of play (Division I, II, III)?

What course subjects or degree do I wish to obtain?

What is the academic selectivity of these schools compared with academic performance?

How large is the college or universities student body?

What is the geographic local of the college or university?
(small town, urban city or suburb)

Do I wish to stay close to home or am I open to other states/regions?
(consider distance and method of travel)

What type of school in terms of size of enrollment?

What is my financial situation? Do I need a scholarship (athletic/academic, financial aid)?

Would I stay at this school if I no longer played lacrosse?

This is true and good advice however be advised that most coaches stick to the ESPN WWW and do not go over to the games at LM Sports park.

All the 2021's play at LM on Saturday. I'm sure there will be plenty of coaches there that day. Not many D1 coaches watching 2020s these days.

You could not be more wrong. All the best matchups of the top teams are slated for Sat at the lake fields. Every single top school who are targeting the top 2021 prospects will be at that venue Saturday.

Previous post indicated to hustle your a@@ off which is the best advice. Good luck to all.

Perhaps more accurate to point out that every single 2021 game is scheduled at the Lake fields on Saturday.

I watched M&D v YJ A 2021 team yesterday at LM and not very well attended at all. Our team only had a handful at our later game which was later in the day and similar to other teams at that time. We are a competitive club and have had 20-30 per game at other tournaments. So far this venue has been nothing but a$$$ grab by all. Between IWLCA and the pro-games, it’s just over-hyped.

Can you clarify this post? when you say "not well attended" and "only a handful at later game" and "20-30 at other tournaments" are you referring to college coaches?

Early games on sat had 20-30 coaches. But games after 5:00pm at LM had very few, some with only 1-2 coaches. Many coaches left LM in the afternoon and posted their attendance at espn for the US/pro games on social media. Obviously an important recruiting year for 2021 class, so disappointing with this missed opportunity
