Hi. Any one have experience with NCSA recruiting services?
I don’t know anything about them but they contacted me. Appreciate any insight because I don’t know anything about the recruiting world. Thank you.

Too young for 2023. You have a good year before you need to do anything from a recruiting perspective. Colleges are on the very tail end of the 2020 and in deep with the 2021. They will be looking at the 2022 this Fall and ramp up in the summer ahead of September of next year. No reason to so anything significant recruiting wise for 2023 because the colleges are actually happy about the new rules as it allows them to look at the boys closer to their full size and pretty much after every boy has done most of their growing.

As for recruiting services, some are better than others but many of them do the similar things. Give you a venue to put your profile such as grades, video, etc. and allow you to email coaches. My personal view is it is better to email the coach using your own email than through the recruiting service and you can pretty easily get all the college coaches contacts via the college team website.

Not worth the money at all. The information is all available for free. Coaches do not hide email addresses. the only teams that will contact you are ones that really will take almost any player.

You actually need as site to store videos, news, grades, etc. These companies help manage it all in one place for you where a coach can get a glimpse of your background. I highly recommend it.

It is easy to have everything in one place. Our club pays for a site for all of the girls to use. I just posted my daughter's highlight videos to Youtube and link them there. If the club didn't pay for the site, I'm not sure I'd pay on my own - she just includes a link to the youtube video in her emails to coaches.

LOL! You’re information is so wrong. Why are you on here talking like you know? Completely wrong.

Agree with the poster above there are far cheaper places to create and store a profile than NCSA. The will also claim to give you a recruiting coordinator that does nothing. Also you will get bombarded from programs that you will most likely have zero interest in. Grand Canyon, Beloit, Uof Dallas. There are many sites that are free or close to free that do the same thing. Key is to target the schools that your son is interested in and have HIM sent the emails and video. Also attend the prospect days. No need to waste money on NCSA.

True. Some kids had to go play on teams from other states because of the new additions to the Bandits. Kids are trying to keep up with the national presence.

Kids get sold a bag of goods and then don't get the playing time they want. If they want to go drive down the Jersey Pike, then let them. They'll have plenty of time on the field and in the car. To each his own.

This age is always fun. Some kids are men and some are still boys. There is the disparity talent. Puberty will quite often win summer tournaments

Believe these are major money grabs but it does matter who your club coach is and what type of college connections they have to get your son noticed

You don't need a service to accomplish what they already do. The only reason someone would want it is to have a direct connection to the college coaches which none of them do. Every school has a lacrosse page with all the coaches information. A few schools may not give phone numbers but most will have emails. When you email a coach share video which you can do through a youtube link so no need to store on a service and make sure to tell them what club / HS team you play for, where you will be, when you will be there. You should give your grades and, too early, but standardized test scores if you are satisfied with the grade. When you get close to a tournament, showcase or prospect day, make sure to email the coach again and give them your jersey number and schedule of you have it. The easier you make it for them to find you the better chance you have them to see you. It does help to have a club or HS coach that is connected and respected and doesn't advocate in a bias manner. What I mean is some kids are good enough to play at Duke and others are not. There is a school for everyone, especially if you are playing high level lacrosse, but your coach shouldn't contact Duke if your son is not good enough. He loses credibility for the next kid he recommends.

All this is way too soon anyway as the boys have a good year to get bigger, better and stronger before it will really matter for this age group. You will be surprised how much some of the smaller kids catch up in a year. Much more fun to watch.

My buddy in Philly told me one of the Brotherly Love Zeus 2023 kids Lucca DiBartolomeo is battling lymphoma. For those interested in helping every little bit helps. The best thing about this game is the community
