He's focused on a certain school, and once lacrosse is over, it's over.

So your son has played and still plays on age and just focused on a certain school? His Good Grades and your money can probably get him in? But, with some of the top schools , that is not always the case.

Not everyone can get onto their top choice schools with grades and money. The sport aspect helps a lot! That’s why parents spend so much money on lacrosse. They are hoping it will be a factor in helping their kid get into a top school they wouldn’t otherwise get in with just money and good grades. The thought and effort is more about future opportunities , more than actual lacrosse!

The sport doesn’t help a lot. Football and basketball do, but lacrosse doesn’t help all that much. Guessing you haven’t gone through the process or you wouldn’t be posting this silliness.Want your kid in a top school, save the $5000 a summer and invest it in a combination of SAT prep and tutors, it will serve your son much more. Parents who spend the money on lacrosse do it for themselves.

The sport absolutely helps a lot. Take a look over the years at the kids who have gone on to Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Duke, Hopkins, Notre Dame, Penn, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell... How many of them would have gotten in on their own? Take a look at the next tier and the tier after that.... Georgetown, Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina.... and the next.... Boston University, Lehigh, Ohio State, Villanova, Syracuse, Maryland, Penn State, Bucknell, Colgate etc...
Don't forget Navy, Army, Airforce.... How about Bentley? DIII is an option as well Tufts and the rest of the NESCAC's.... and many more schools.

How many of the Long Island players that are currently enrolled at those schools or who have graduated would have been accepted without the help of the lacrosse coach?

Go check the roster for Football and Basketball at the schools listed above and tell us all how many Long Island kids are on the rosters and then take a look at the Lacrosse rosters at those schools.

The lacrosse players who went to all those schools had the grades. Sorry to interfere with your fantasy. The kids going to the service academies get very little assistance from the sport. If they don't have the grades it's off to Prep. You have not been through the process if you believe what you are writing.

You really have no knowledge of how this works. Do you really believe that the majority of players get into school on their own? You have to be joking, nobody is that misinformed.

Those who say you need similar grades compared to everyone else who gets accepted without lacrosse probably have a kid who was not good enough to have a coach push his kid through the admission process. Nothing wrong with that but they will never understand or believe you because they had a different recruiting experience. The less skill a kid has the more helpful grades are and the more skill a kid has the more lesser grades are overlooked. Also every school is different. Division one coaches have more of a chance to push someone through than division three. They also manipulate the system. Top schools will take a 100 average student who will never play but he will off set a low grade top athlete to meet the grades a recruiting class needs. Not all do this but I know for a fact some do. Kids should get the best grades they can so they won’t have to worry if a coach can get them into a school. This is especially so for division three.

Lacrosse is a MAJOR help for a service academy or an IVY. Think 1250 SAT 89-90 average and going to Harvard or Yale. Anyone else needs 1450+ and 98. Same thing with service academies...Getting into Navy (in particular) or West Point (to a lesser extent) without a sport is as hard as getting into a top Ivy. Kids with 85 averages going to service academy prep school and then onto an academy. They are doing an extra year and would not pass the laugh test without lacrosse. So keep practicing boys.....It helps!!!

Hearing that another Nassau lacrosse group/conference realignment is coming. Anyone have any clarity or info. Are they now going to switch conferences every year based on school enrollment and do they really fluctuate that much? There has to be a better way to keep a competitive balance, at least in Nassau. For the blue chip programs they'll remain strong for some of the outliers all it takes is a player or 2 to graduate than they stink the next season.

You fail to mention that you must be a top 10 recruit at your position in the country.

Also, do you need to be a holdback? How many top recruits in each position in the country are “on age”?

Agree you need to be top ten at your position to go to Yale. Harvard has reached down further historically, but that is probably changing with new coach.

You don’t have to be top ten at your spot to go to service academy. Some in that upper echelon may choose to go that route. However, academies reach down much further. They have to as that life is not appropriate for most lax bros out there. Many/most recruits already required to spend a year at the prep school in order to be accepted. A lot of kids also “commit” to an academy and then use it as leverage to flip elsewhere.
