If we look at the best college programs, the programs that are consistently in the Top 10-20 we will see maybe 25 Long Island players end up at these schools. There will be a very small number of players who receive offers from the top programs but for whatever reason choose to go elsewhere. For the most part the best players will have their choice of schools and they will more than likely find a home at one of the best college programs.

College coaches do not recruit club teams, they recruit players and they recruit these players from all over the country, I doubt most parents from Long Island had any idea who Izzy Scane or Charolette North were when they were juniors in HS. I will guarantee every college coach worth their salt knew all about them.

I truly wish all of the players well but to some of the parents (not all ) just the ones who think they know who all of the best players are and obviously think their daughter is one of them many of you are in for a rude awakening.

Why are you stating a bunch of jibberish that people already know?? Yawn…… Is there an actual point in your message?? Confused at why you’re posting

It’s gibberish. If you already know and you find it boring why do you take the time to engage? If as you say that “people already know” why are you asking what the actual point of the post is? Apparently you are confused often.

As to his point …. I would say it’s pretty clear, there are a lot of delusional parents who think they know it all (who the best players are, who the best club team is, who should and shouldn’t make certain teams, how much scholarship $$ kids get, etc…). They also try to diminish any accolade, list, ranking or team that their daughter doesn’t make. They cry politics and friends and family network and call BS when their kid is not recognizing. Obviously these parents think their daughter is a top notch player who should be recognized.

The recruiting process will tell us all where the players stand. Some, not very many will be offered spots by the best college programs but most will not.

If you think all parents know where their daughter stands you are delusional. Just look at all of the negative comments and attempts to tear down or diminish players, rankings teams etc... all in an effort to say there are many deserving players (including their daughter) who were not named, or selected for some sort of accolade. These parents blame politics, Friends and Family network, Club affiliation, other connections and any other excuse that they can dream up to discredit the accolade. The reality is that there are usually not many deserving players that are not recognized and the recruiting process will prove that fact.

I'm guessing that you are one of these parents because the above posts appear to bother you so much.

BTW, I actually do wish all of the players well, they are not the problem. The delusional, disgruntled, jealous parents are the problem.

If my daughter committing to to a top academic and lacrosse school makes me delusional, so be it. You got the wrong person. You’re the one who sounds disgruntled and jealous. Who made excuses? I don’t even understand what you are ranting about!

I know what you are talking about. There are a lot of parents who think their kid is better than they actually are. I think I’ve been one of them! My kid was actually selected for many of the big accolades, unfortunately all during covid but anyone else getting that same accolade was also affected by covid. The accolades haven’t played out in recruiting at all. Seeing tons of commits, even some really nice commits from our team where she is very much a star player, but she just hasn’t gotten those kind of calls at all. Second guessing myself— I might have done something differently as a parent guiding the process.

Plenty of time to adjust. Reassess what schools you have been targeting and get busy. Have your coaches make calls and get to prospect camps. So much time left, but you really have to expand your list and take action ASAP. Our coach always told us not to neglect our backups. Lots of lax in November too. But you need to get on radar now. If your daughter has many accolades, there are schools that will be psyched to have her looking at them. Many schools go slower because they aren't top 25, but tons of great lacrosse beyond top 25.

Pretty sure they are talking about parents who cry politics , friends & family network, club affiliation, connections etc… trying to diminish whatever the accolade is because their daughter was not recognized.

It doesn’t sound like you or the other guy who’s daughter committed to a Top Academic/Top Lacrosse school.

You guys are really uninformed . Full athletic rides do happen , I can tell you UNC , USC , BC , all have players w 100 % cost of attendance scholarships and there are many other programs that have the same . How because these schools have many players that the school was an academic reach and have parents w money so they are willing to be happy with the help getting in .

From experience on the boy's side, my son plays for a Big 10 school who is top 10 in lacrosse. He has the highest scholarship on his team. It's 70%. Boys rosters are larger than girls. It would be very unlikely that someone would get a full athletic scholarship. People who state that are probably combining other monies with the athletic aid.

Agree ^^^ If they have 100% tuition covered, is more likely a combination of money, not just athletic. A fully funded team gets 12 and spending a full 1 of those on a single player is not done, especially for freshman and initial offer.

The reality is that people (in the lacrosse world) never want to believe any player is better or more deserving than their daughter. So, if their daughter was offered 20% they do not want to believe that anyone is offered more than that. If a player is told that their daughter needs to have a 31 or better ACT to go to HYP they will never believe that another player might only need a 28 ACT. There is one joker that was posting on the boys side that actually believes that the boys going to The Academy's and The Ivy's all had the grades, he does not want to believe that the coaches can help all that much. Why? Because his kid probably had very good grades (not good enough to get into a top academic school on his own) but was not a high caliber lacrosse player (which the parent can't understand) so the coaches were not willing to help with admissions. Same goes for scholarships, every situation is different, not every player / recruit is equal, not everyone gets a trophy. I would never say never, "rare" is more likely. From what I have seen, most coaches will not decrease a scholarship but they will increase if they feel the player deserves it. The above poster is correct, for many in the lacrosse world the prize is getting their daughter into a prestigious school that she would not be able to get into on her own, It's not just The Ivy's, Obviously Duke, Stanford, Northwestern, Hopkins, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, ND, Boston College... and don't forget about Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Penn State, Maryland.... It is not easy to get accepted to these State Schools from out of state. Not every kid has 95+ GPA, 30 SAT or 1300 SAT.... For many just getting in is great.

The real question is why do people care so much about what others are offered?

Agree. Also, there's a lack of appreciation in the comments for real financial need. It's not as if every lacrosse player has a wealthy family, despite the image of lacrosse. I know a number of players who have turned down spots at high rank schools because they were not the most coveted and therefore funded, and move onto a lower level team for more money. They end up being stars at their lower ranked schools too, where they were probably bench on top team.

Also, for those with a GAI of 150-180k. It can be better to take the financial aid than the scholarship. You can wind up getting 50% or more at Duke, Northwestern, Stanford. Coach will also throw in about 7% more
