Can’t vouch for it but see them on Instagram. 2 wolves performance. Look like they know their stuff.

Where are the bases out of?

I think westchester and Nassau. If you start following some of these guys in Instagram, they post a decent amount of stuff your kid can work on on the side. I do it more with my younger one but you can see what they are doing and copy. As my kids have gotten older you realize how much it’s all about footwork-every sport. Like a science now compared to when we were young.

Check Instagram. It’s where ever they can find a venue.

Sounds like a great idea. Get him a tutor to raise the GPA and ACT, it’s a much greater advantage.

No, it isn't. A recruited athlete with the above stats (good enough grades and 95+ percentile SAT/ACT) will have better odds of getting in to any Ivy than a valedictorian double legacy with a 1600 SAT.

Quote
My son got into an Ivy as a lax player with a 1250 SAT. We pay $28k for an $80k school. Family income is $200k and have one other child in HS. This is a better scholarship than he would have received at a non Ivy as it is the equivalent of about 65%

If your son did play at an Ivy, you of all people should know that he was an exception and is not really representative of most of his teammates (and other Ivy recruits/prospects). Heck, a school like Harvard (usually highest AI) probably has more players with 1600s than any who score in the 1200s.

The "cutoff" for most going through the Ivy process is higher than 1250, and the vast majority of your competition will score better than that. The Ivy (and NESCAC) lacrosse recruiting world is pretty darn small -- you run across the same kids and families from the usual schools (NE prep schools, Baltimore and Philly privates, Long Island and CT publics/CHSAA, etc), so it's easy for both parents and kids to get a general idea of what you're they're against.

Why enter NESCAC into the discussion?

Because except for the absolute top recruits who choose Ivy over ACC, players looking at Harvard and Dartmouth and Brown are also considering Williams and Amherst. It's the same group of players.

Not accurate at all.

It is though, especially early on in the process (before the players really sort themselves out by skill level).

Apply now, talk to admissions etc? These are D3 schools. If my son would consider them what’s the next step? Thanks

Is your son a 22’ or a 23’? If he’s a 23 it’s still VERY early for D3 coaches to be recruiting him. No need to rush the process, keep in contact with them, and ask them what their timeline looks like.

He’s a 2023. Just wasn’t sure what this meant or how to respond. Right after this we started getting emails from admissions and other basic school emails. I figured it was early still. I appreciate the feedback.

We are in the same boat. We have had a couple D3 schools have my kid out on visits; it may be a little early but not uncommon. The next step is to communicate with them and if they are truly interested they will set up a call or two and then a visit eventually. D3 timeline is very different from D1 in that they don’t really start making formal offers until May and June. If your son is offered then they will likely have to apply Early Decision to that school. Whomever said that offers won’t last forever is probably mostly correct though some schools may keep a spot open if they really are interested. I could be wrong as my experience is limited but this is what I’ve been told so far. Good luck and I agree, don’t rush the process.

Seriously asking that here

The process is really strange in my humble opinion. 2 offers of schools in his top 5 sounds pretty good. If he likes the coaches and likes schools it seems like you are in a good spot.

Not sure about the guy asking you why are you asking in a “lacrosse forum” as it seems perfectly reasonable to ask. My thoughts, if it’s top 5, take it. Offers may not past for ever. If those offers are # 4 and 5 and they are a far ways away from his #1 and he really wants to go there, then you are going to have play it out. My boy has gotten some “lacrosse offers” but they ae closer to his 10-15 range and he wants to go through the academic process to see if he can get in to his higher ranked schools even if it means giving up lacrosse. So find out where your kids red-line truly is.

I can and will vouch for Coach Jack any and every day of the week. Best coach out there. Better person. If you’re really seriously looking you’d be crazy not to find a way to 2wolves. Shake School, First Class Lacrosse and Attack Academy are others but Jack is the real deal. Def a reason all the top players in CT/westchester and LI train with him.

Players looking at the school is not the same as schools looking at the players….

Hahaha. So true. There are a lot of angry people on this forum. It does kind of stink because there really is a paucity of helpful advice; maybe I should start a separate thread 🤔…

I’m in Suffolk. Are any of these that you mention, in Suffolk? How do they compare to GLE in Hauppauge?

Anyone playing in the coach run King of the Hills tournament this weekend? I heard it was 18 teams strong this weekend, with a number of varsity coaches eager to start playing after a lack luster and limited playing season due to COVID.
