the lacrosse network in Manhattan is ridiculous on wall street - every year intern classes and training programs are littered with college lax players, traders, sales people etc.
This is a fact, although I'm not in finance my cousin is and he says every year a new crop of interns and new hires are former Lax players. He always jokes and says playing Lax is a great for your resume in the finance world. I'm not saying this applies in all cases but Alumni take care of there own.
Attending college and playing lacrosse for D1 or D3 demonstrates character and commitment. While getting a college degree doesn't guarantee success as a professional it does improve the chances. Playing lacrosse demonstrates to a prospective employer you are willing to work hard and sacrifice in order to be successful. Don't under-estimate the power of the lacrosse community. So much more powerful than just a degree from a school or even belonging to a fraternity where you only really hang out with the kids you went to school with. Lacrosse players, whether past or present, have a mutual respect for one another.
why never the talk of D2.
D2 is a bust. Look at Dowling. What a disaster!
Idiotic post. Their problems had nothing to do with D2 lacrosse. In fact, lacrosse was one of the few things that school did well.
Putting the cart before the horse, that is the problem with all the madness within this dead end sport.
Dead end sport?? You obviously have never played the game. People play this sport for the love of the game. For most people that have both played and are playing now, its one of the very few true passions in life. As a player, you are a memember of a small, but very loyal fraternity, for life. That’s a “dead end” to you?? You think that 💰💰💰 are the only measure of value In life? It’s prob the worst measure of value in life.
One thing I noticed with my son who is a 2022 is after the WSYL people care considerably less about who the "best teams are and start to focus more on recruiting events and HS ball
So, I ask you; In the grand scheme of things, other than "it was a great experience" did it really matter? In my opinion, great experience, but couldn't wait to get back home on last day.
I’ll answer that with a question. Did your sons team make the championship game?
No, and you're missing my point. Even if his team did make it to the finals, I would feel the same way. As I said, it was a great experience for our family. Would preferred to be out on the boat that holiday week. To each is own...
Does anyone know how the 91 Commack facilities are? I was thinking of sending my son to some of the clinics there.
It is off the Wicks Rd Exit on 495--- 71 Mall Drive I believe. Its the Dynamic Sports Facility..
Due yourself a favor, buy a bucket of balls, grab you son, go to your local H.S. field to practice. Afterwards, go grab a bite to eat.
Not everyone can teach their kids how to play.. The wall and cage are a must, but game theory is needed too.
Well, if your local H.S. is without a wall and cage, I guess you need to bring your son to Dynamic Sport. Especially for the theory aspect of the game. Be careful of the steel beams situated within the field area. I think it was used as factory or warehouse some time ago. Good luck!
