I've always been told goalies are usually first to commit, not every school takes a goalie every grad year either, and in that they aren't going to take two unlike other positions, and it becomes more urgent for both the goalies and the school to land their targets

What top program doesn't have this situation? If a program is expecting a goalie to step on campus and start, they messed up in their recruiting a few years prior. Even if a goalie used that as a factor, a quick transfer can ruin that plan, see BC as example.

Chose the school based on the environment, coaches, academics and program not on the depth chart of your Junior year in HS.

IMO, the top recruits for the class of 23 clearly are not coming from SW, M&D, Hero's as in the past. If you are a top recruit, whether you are visiting schools or not, the decision would be made by now.

^ really? It is day 13, the girls are back in school and visits (plural) work best on weekends of which, not counting Labor Day, there has been 1. Many girls from the clubs you mentioned are visiting (plural) the top programs. Those same girls are weighing high level lacrosse and high level academics in the hope of finding the right fit. It is way, way too early to say any club, clubs or region is doing "better" than another. Is a commitment to Harvard, Yale, Princeton not as good as one to BC, MD, UNC if the girl wants to emphasize academics over lacrosse?

So, you know that they are visiting "plural" top programs? Or are you just speculating? Seems like other out of state programs are able to get it done?

A SW just committed to Princeton. Great get- went to real deserving player too. I wonder what the other studs thought when they weren’t the first to commit. Parents probably pissed. It’s a very fluid process.

For someone unknown to the process, does the player typically have an idea of who is interested in them, likely to offer before Sep 1?
This would allow for unofficial visits over summer, etc

Many of these top recruits also know current families and players connected to the team. Don't make it out to be more than it is. They narrowed their dream school list down to 2-4 schools (maybe even less) months ago and have been guided by their club coaches who also know the school's and talk to the coaches.

You clearly have no idea what your talking about. The top girls are being courted by multiple schools and unless you have a dream school already picked they are getting visits in now over the next few weeks. These top recruits have lots of options. It will take us at least 2 1/2 more weeks just to get in the rest of the visits in. These are just the official visits.

They do have some idea but a lot of surprises pop up for the best players.

Yes. Generally, players will tell club coaches their top 10-15 targets and the coach will reach out over the summer to the college coaches. College coaches technically cant say if they will offer, but they can make it very clear.

Hope so because lots of commits have come through already and not many MD girls on the list! 67 2023 girl commits and only 8 from Maryland. Sign of the times though. As the sport has grown, perennial Maryland clubs like MDU, Skywalkers, M&D, etc.. are no longer developing the players to the same level as some other clubs like CT Grizzlies, Eaglestix, YJ, Top Guns, Jesters, LI Elite. The Long Island girls are far outpacing the Maryalnd girls and the Connecticut & Atlanta girls are giving everyone a run for their money. As the game has exploded throughout the US, the recruiting landscape has changed significantly. The old club owner/college coach relationship is not always enough anymore. Rude awakening for many 2023 players and parents I am sure!

Sad to say but true. More a matter of resting on laurels. Our MD club has such a laisse-faire attitude towards practicing that has stung.
If there’s bad weather or scheduling conflicts then practice is cancelled and not made up or no practice skills are sent to work on our own.
I know that the owner/ head of JetBlue (Neepier) lived and raised his family for a time up in CT and built the lacrosse program a new stadium up there( they didn’t need a Utahian to do this but it made it nicer).
As for GA there are a lot of transplants down there that make sure the girls are playing at the speed they play up here. Stick skills can be taught.
