My daughter is a defender and has been since MS-ish, by choice because she was good at it and likes the physicality.

She got recruited as a defender but did not get the looks that her teammates on offense got, which was disheartening since she was highly regarded within that team and on her school team. Nevertheless, she got recruited and ended up at a mid-major and is now getting the heretofore-only-rumored full ride. She started out with more academic money than athletic and it was maybe 40-50% of full tuition but that changed in our favor over the years.

I will say that I thought entering the recruiting process that she would get more looks because I figured the pool of offensive and midfield players was jammed and that was my mistake.

Not sure why the uniforms would surprise you - they're listed as "YJ Tigers" on Tourney Machine.



each team description states.. "players who mostly attend" such and such HS.. so I guess each team is with the rules to add kids from other HS if they wanted too.

My daughter is a defender and has received as much if not more interest than anyone on her club team. Stop making generalizations. Maybe on second level club teams defenders aren't athletic, but on the top teams defenders have to be able to stop the starting attackers on the other teams. Same in HS. Just a silly statement. Don't disagree that colleges turn HS middies into defenders. But just silly to think there aren't a lot of great defenders out there. The senior UA teams have as many defenders as attackers. They are all going to great schools.

College coaches recruit athletes with good stick skills and high lacrosse IQ. They don't care what position she is playing for a club team.
