Hard to imagine that the kid would make the decision to sacrifice playing so that he can practice with a AA team. Just doesn;t sound like something that would come out of a 15 year old......a 30+ father yes, 15 no.

The kid can get great practices on the travel club, and then start on their high school team and go to showcases with their high school team. The high school coach will promote the kid more than the club.


Vast majority of players get recruited from club not high school teams. Unless you kid is playing in the top 15 high schools in the nation, club is their best opportunity.


Not true. I've seen our varsity coach help a lot of kids in our school district get into top D1 and D3 schools. We're not top 15 in the country.

If by reading all this negative garbage you can’t see the problem, you’re probably a big part of it.

Agreed. Pathetic that of the three things listed, recruiting was what was talked about and nothing about the fun and confidence building of the kid. Confidence carries across all aspects of life. Where they played....after they graduated college....eh. pathetic.

Yes.....we should ban the talk about any recruiting of any kind, by anyone on a lacrosse forum thread dedicated to the most important recruiting year of a lacrosse players career. OK got it.

If your son is good enough it is the college coaches job to find them. Summer travel is a joke but is used to compete and develop. If you are not on a top team maybe your organization gets into a few tournaments where college coaches attend and your son is seen. I have been here and navigated the process( 3 sport athlete going to top 3 college team in country).
Go to college prospect camps
Under armour tryouts - making team is political but tryout is the exposure ( top 50 main field is goal)
Nassau/suffolk hs tryout is cheap and great exposure-
If this is what your son wants he will find a home, Like earlier poster said enjoy the moment not the recruitment. Time flys
