Thank you and so well said! Every kids recruiting journey will be different, I Appreciate your perspective. As a parent who is about to go through it for the first time and not knowing what to expect, I appreciate you sharing your experience, thoughts and advice. I always hear, most kids end up where they belong. So, hoping that is the case for all the wonderful, awesome LI girl Lacrosse players! Good Luck All

Do we expect any college coaches to show up in person at this Inside Lacrosse Elite Eight Midnight Madness event tonight?

Be patient and try not to get too upset if the phone isn't buzzing too much on 9/1. The elite players will go quickly and then the others will take weeks and months. Every kid's journey will be different. Be open, be respectful to all programs. Do not believe most of what the other parents tell you after 9/1 - they are most likely exaggerating or flat out lying.

No. They already have their lists, and it's very unlikely to change despite a great or weak performance. They will likely watch the live stream though.

I don’t know if they will attend but I do know that “their lists” will change consistently. Once that first player commits the coaches re-evaluate and prioritize.

When that first Top Tier kid Commits most likely 4 or 5 other programs just lost one of their highly ranked recruits that they were hoping to get. It goes on and on, it is very fluid and a coach who was not offering today may offer tomorrow if they miss on other players.

Yes, and the coaches are not allowed to be there because it is still the quiet period until 12 midnight. However, Spallina will be there watching because his sons are playing.

Be patient. Don't compare your daughters process with anyone else. Everyone's process is different! Communicate back to all schools that have reached out - even the emails.

Agree with ^. We had a very polite reply ready for the schools that my daughter knew she did not want to attend for reasons such as academic standing or location. I think it is only fair to let those schools know as soon as possible that you are not interested so they can move along.

Thanks! Suddenly there has been a flurry of activity on my daughters account from schools she never contacted; yet not seeing activity anymore from the schools she's really interested in. Guess we'll know more tomorrow. We may go quickly from "So excited to hear from schools!" to "rather not play". Between this and stress of being back in person post COVID these will be some interesting times to navigate with 16 year olds. Good luck to all!

We’ve had some weird stuff like that happen too. Hard to say what any of it means. We will find out in a few hours! Good luck!

Please hear me out- What if you are not ready to commit and want to work on your form a little bit more, like one season more.
And as a 23 you're not ready to make a decision until next summer?
Will some schools still come back to you (I know that they wont wait for you to make your decision) or blackball you?

I would suggest keeping very detailed notes of everything discussed with coaches. And every single coach will ask your daughter if she has any questions, have a canned list of at least a dozen ready to go. "Uhm" or "NO" is not an acceptable answer. Prep your daughter on how to handle these calls prior to answering them. Have a calendar ready and if it is a college of interest, book the visit date, whether it is the coach coming to do a home visit or you going to campus and follow up with details later. Keep all doors and options open until you have other better options and offers in your hand, even if your dream school calls, you most likely will still need a visit with the coach to get an offer, so you never know. My daughter had a lot of phone calls starting exactly at midnight, the coaches want to express interest, get you pumped on their program, but are also in a bit of a hurry to make other calls. Call waiting beeps should be ignored, but that is stressful too, but they will continue to call back until they reach you. We were up to about 4-5:00AM taking calls, then it died down til about 7:30AM then got busy again. The next two days were mostly follow up calls and making arrangements. Most coaches send an email exactly at midnight if they are interested and call ASAP. A set time for a phone meeting can be set up by responding to the emails, that seemed the easiest way as your daughter may be taking other calls and the coaches may be making other calls.

This is fabulous advice.
My bit to add is to have your daughter ask the coach how many 23s they are planning on recruiting for the class (i.e. 6 kids) and where she stands on their list. Prep her and make sure she asks bc that information is very helpful to know. Some coaches will not be straight up,but others will.
If your daughter's dream school calls-it doesn't bode well if she tells them or any bid dogs who are interested that she's just going through the process. You have to let the schools you are interested in that you are very interested in them. If your daughter doesn't communicate that-they may just move on.
ENJOY this time!! A coach told me that and I thought they were crazy-it's definitely stressful-but folks-this is it-this is what your daughter has put so much time and hard work for and you've shelled out lots of money for. Enjoy those official visits (Unofficials are fun, too). Enjoy being wanted. There's a great fit out there for every girl.
