Reality is until there are vaccines or viable treatments for covid AND 60-65% of the population gets the vaccine sports will be in jeopardy. Practicing lacrosse in fall is nice but it's a long way from playing a schedule in spring.

The odd contradiction though is that most of the players on these Prep teams played competitively all Summer. Most of them probably played in 15 - 25 games and had a lot of practices. All full contact, regular play.

And, while their schools won’t be playing sports this Fall, the club lacrosse will be happening.

Club lacrosse is the Wild West. Clubs are small business owners and want to deliver their product without having to give refunds and still collect checks. Send a simple waiver to parents and then everything goes forward like normal times. Kind of crazy, but that is the reality.

It’s like the twilight zone where there are 2 opposite worlds functioning at the same time and the students/players are operating in both.

Absolutely. However can't see boarding student leaving each weekend for a club practice then being allowed back onto campus.

I agree. Even if the kids are permitted to leave, it will be too difficult. Plus, I have heard that some of the boarding schools are guaranteeing more exposure than playing elsewhere.

Is this site still moderated? How do the above "responses" get through.

Do kids get recruited by any of these schools to play lacrosse? Or are there just so many kids that play and have money to pay that these schools don’t need to bother? Just curious how schools build their programs...

Depends on the school/coach. Some recruit hard and some soft or not at all. For those that recruit hard, the coaches will be at many club events and showcases through the summer/fall. Some are affiliated with certain clubs or at least have relationships with clubs. These coaches will also look to be involved coaching UA teams, etc.

Many of these schools are virtual, there's no campus to go to/from currently.

Our experience is when we decided to go the prep school route we contacted three schools. From there the schools did their homework speaking with HS and club cloaches as well as reference teammates and watched tape. Then the recruitment came in the form of the on-campus visit and how much financial aid each school would give based on their need at that position and wanting "last look" etc.,

Yes they do recruit or at least the top half of Founders League does. Recruitment is similar to college recruiting with exception being there are no "athletic" scholarships. Financial aid is need based/ how much the school wants your son for lacrosse.

They will absolutely give aid based purely on financial need. However if an athlete they want also needs financial aid and they have similar grades/activities/strong interview the athlete may get more depending on the school and the particular year.

The three school we were speaking with all seemed to have a formula to arrive at a data based needs figure. Each school came in within 10k of each other. From there they jockeyed to be the lowest (though in the end that was not the final consideration for us, we had made our decision). Frankly, I was surprised how much aid we were awarded given our family's financial profile. I was shocked actually. I expected nothing based on my tax receipts and final tuition was 1/3 the published tuition. Choate, Deerfield and Avon have HUGE endowments.

Congratulations! All 3 are great schools. Fortunately all the Founders League Schools are much more generous than a typical private secondary school or even a university. Does your son pla sports or is he talented in academics/arts? Private schools look for exceptionally talented students which doesn't always translate in athletics. Often the arts/academia also make an applicant desirable.
