Have you reached out to the schools that your daughter is interested in?

It is very important to make sure that all of the coaches (head coach & assistants) at the schools that your daughter would like to go to are aware of your daughters genuine interest and desire to attend the school.

Ask your Club Director and HS Coach to reach out to the schools as well.

What level of lacrosse would you say the schools that have expressed interest are? Look for better academic schools that are of similar lacrosse level to the schools that have reached out.

Don't panic or get too stressed (do your best to help your daughter do the same). The process has just begun.

Develop a plan.....

Go to NCAA Women's Lacrosse website, select DI, click on rankings, Select RPI . There you will see all of the schools that offer Division I women's lacrosse. (you can do the same for DII & DIII as well)

https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/lacrosse-women/d1/ncaa-womens-lacrosse-rpi

Make a list of all the schools that your thinks she would be interested in and develop a strategy to "market" your daughter to the coaches at those schools. You do not want to be a pest but you want to make it known that your daughter would like to play for them.

Keep in mind, if your daughter has excellent grades she may be able to get a lot of academic $$ from schools that you feel are below her academically.

Hope that was somewhat helpful.

One of the best posts recently!
This is really good helpful info.

Please advise:
Daughter has gotten many prospect day invites but with the pace of recruiting the 23’s this year I feel as if this is just “Round One Prospect Days”
Then in the break between winter and spring schools will do another “Round 2 Prospect Days” and then want to take a look at the kids after spring. When will this cycle end?!?!?! And I’m talking good players from good areas, just not the top 30. That’s a lot of money to blow.

Nope, don't even know her. Just curious why so many got worked up by the statement? Interesting IMO. Honestly, I think it goes to show that "the best" may not actually be the best, and that there are plenty of girls out there that don't get the acknowledgement that are in fact "the best" - they just weren't "marketed" like some of these girls.[/quote]

Ok there's another girl on that team with super-marketing mom too. Go home and play there. The girls will be much happier, plus its bad for their mental health just flying back and forth all of the time.[/quote]

Just curious - what is the acceptable amount of marketing according to the self righteous on this page? If your kid is from a non-traditional lacrosse region/not flying across the country to play with a well known program, how do you ensure your kid gets seen? I just listened to the IWLCA webinar on the recruiting process and the college coaches all said that they will miss players - good players - because they can't be at every tournament, etc. Talented kids will be missed unless they market themselves.[/quote]

Ok Mom

Agreed. I’ll be interested to see what happens after the prospect day. Seems like a lot will be riding on performance there.

Lay off the ivermectin...you're sounding like a horse's butt


I agree with horse’s butt assessment but what’s with the ivermectin reference?

the poster's need to virtue signal his stance on Covid ("obedience masks") made me think he's probably a fan of ivermectin...which is used on large animals...so I figured maybe that's why he's acting like a horse...'s butt.

Typical response by a low IQ individual. Stanford has had recruiting scandals, academic scandals and currently has mandates that are not science based. But at least you tried to sound intelligent and looked up how to spell ivermectin.[/quote]

Typical response from a “Qoolaid” drinker!

What I've learned so far during this recruiting time:

Camps were a waste of money and time. The camps my daughter went to did not really pan out the way we expected. While other schools that people said "they only recruit from camps" came on hot.

Some schools drag their feet a bit, not sure why. Kind of a turn off when you have other equivalent schools reaching out offering visits, while they just stay "in the loop".

I am surprised that more girls have not committed yet, but it is also refreshing that girls are not jumping at their first offer. This will benefit all, because the girls can see schools and then pick the one that they feel best suit their needs without feeling pressure seeing tons of others committing to the first school that offers.

The experience has been great and I am confident my daughter will find school that checks all the boxes if she is patient with the process.

How is everyone else doing?

I predict some commitments after this weekend. The top girl’s have been visiting and will be at official visits tomorrow. Offers made last week will be accepted and there will be announcements Sunday and Monday.

My daughter will be making a visit this weekend, next weekend (2) and the second weekend in October for another. After this first round of top choices we’ll see where she lands. We had not been proactive reaching out to schools because we had no idea where she stacked up. I should say, I had an idea, and her club coach had an idea but you just don’t really know until the offers start coming in. There is a large swath of other schools that we might target if these first ones fall through. These are top 20 programs so I think she has a great shot with lower ranked programs if she doesn’t like these. It’s nice to see my daughter feeling so good about her future college options and even better hearing her on the phone with these coaches talking about the game. I know she’ll be so excited to bring. Her best to the college game.

Great advice above. My daughter had the same exact problem when she started the recruiting process. Your daughter will really need to advocate for herself to the specific schools she is interested in. This includes everything mentioned above. I cannot stress enough though the fact that she will need to market herself and also have her club and high school coach advocate for her as well. My daughter had done many camps over the years and had made many all star teams. She had been a part of the Under Armour Underclass and National Lacrosse Classic games. She was a starter for a club team that played in the top bracket at tournaments and is also a starter for a nationally ranked high school team. It’s still not super easy to get recruited to a school that you want to attend and that is a match for your daughter in all aspects. Just keep plugging away and don’t settle for less. My daughter did end up committing to a school that was an all around match but it took longer and was definitely a lot harder than we had anticipated. Patience and persistence is key.

Same for us! She really wants to see all her top choices before she decides. There will be no decision until early October. The coaches have been very understanding. I suspect that there are many other girls who are in the same boat as ours. Good luck!

Of course there will be a few, but many "top" girls have not seen all the schools that they're interested in, so I think the first week of October will be the big week for most commitments. I'm actually surprised some rushed into committing so fast, unless it was their number one dream school. I just don't know how you actually know if a school is the "dream school' unless maybe the girl had been to camps at a bunch of schools. My daughter didn't do camps, so we need to see the schools.

Agree, there are only 15 - 20 Long Island girls max that will truly have their pick of the Top 10-15 type schools right now. Most (even if they are receiving interest) will have to go through the process. It is also important to remember that your daughter is not operating in a vacuum, the decisions / choices that other players make can impact your daughters situation. Every time a player commits the landscape changes, it’s a very fluid situation. Remember, no single program gets all of their top ranked recruits. If your daughter is not one of those top 20 or so kids make sure you are proactive with her top targets, be persistent but don’t become a pest. Things change, a coach who is not willing to make an offer today may be ready tomorrow or next week or next month, you never know.
Be patient, persistent and positive. Also, keep an open mind and be willing to explore opportunities and possibilities that you did not think of or consider.
There are a lot of great places to go to school and play lacrosse. Enjoy the process/ ride.

Ok are these official visits or are they prospect days? We are doing a handful of prospect days but have no official visits that we have been invited to yet.
There is a difference, correct?

Good luck.
