100% not true....tons of coaches at 23 games. one team who was not top had at least 30 there ...so Schools are taking their time this year. They felt completely rushed with the 22s. Plenty of spots for D! programs and they are still committing girls daily....so stop with that nonsense already.

Top schools are out of money. Top players are committed. Some pwo spots or mid to lower D1 will still be looking.

Some schools may be done or close to being done with 23’s some are still looking to fill their 23 class. Most will also wait until after upcoming college season ends to see who enters the transfer portal before closing out the class. There are definitely spots available and we will also see some players change their commitment.

Also remember, schools will always look for top quality girls who aren't looking for $$

I disagree with the if you’re good you’ll be found statement. If you’re not out into a situation where coaches will see you they won’t know who you are. That’s why you see girls flocking to teams with a grade above them that does well with recruiting and why teams like YJ are going strong for so many years. A clubs reputation gets them into better events, they have more rapport with coaches, and coaches are more likely to see them play

Actually top teams like YJ, recruit about 5-6 girls to the most coveted schools. The rest may get recruited, but there is a big drop off. If your daughter does not start and contribute significantly, she is not in that top 5.

—- “Top schools are out of money. Top players are committed. Some pwo spots or mid to lower D1 will still be looking.” —-

So typical, why post this? There are many DI programs still trying to fill their class as well as all DII & DIII programs.

Of course the majority of the strongest players are committed and as far as programs being out of money well, there is very little money to begin with.

Your post was transparent.

yes this is so true. parents should read this quote a few times and start doing some proactive things for their kids. having a JY uniform on does not mean you are automatically getting recruited and it also doesnt mean that YJ will do any of the leg work to help get you recruited. YJ focus is on the A team AND only the top 5 or 6 on the A team because they know that those are the girls that will commit to a top 10 school which makes it look good for the JY program

Kids on YJ Ramos will also get good looks. Other than that, I'd head to an A team at legacy, jesters, or TG if you can make it. They have credibility with recruiting.

Cause Porch’s tournies are pure money grab and she doesn’t hire table help. Also the fields are laid out wrong. No space in the middle. Wish there was an alternative.

Prime Time scores posted yet??

NO ONE is doing the legwork for your kid to get recruited except YOU and your kid. Do not rely on any coach, coordinator or director at ANY club to spearhead your child’s recruiting You must teach your child how to market herself (at camps and on social media) and how to advocate for herself ( with good film and emails to coaches). Which team you are on only gets you so far. No matter how great a reputation a club has the director or coordinator can only do so much and there are a ton of girls looking for the directors help. Be proactive. Look at naviance and college board and create a list of schools then look at the lacrosse programs and see if she can realistically play their. Send your emails and film always Keep your coach and director in the loop

This is so untrue. Yes those kids will g wet looked at but if you aren’t on any of those teams you 100% can still be recruited to a top school. They don’t just need a YJ player FYI.

President's Cup and Thanksgiving took a toll on my energy level, but all things considered it was a good week. Anyone know where it will be next year? Hopefully, not California (long haul), and back on the East Coast.

Sound advice.

There are a very limited number of players who will attract the attention of the coaches at the Top 10 - 20 college programs. These are the players that don’t have to market themselves, the coaches watch the players play and the proactively reach out to the player. For most , the player I needs to be proactive in
Marketing themselves to college coaches. Do not believe the mantra “if you are good the college coaches will find you”. That may be true for the elite athletes but not for the majority of players.

- Identify target schools
- develop a plan to market yourself to coaches
- Identify influencers / trusted advisors.. people who can reach out to college coaches… Club Coach, Club Director, HS Coach, current players / former players at the school that you / your daughter might know etc… who are willing to reach out and put in a good word / ask the coaches to take a look.
- Be persistent (don’t be a pest) things change, coaches do not get all of the players that they want, they are consistently revising their list and prioritizing players.
- if your daughter receives interest from programs that she is not interested in look for similar caliber programs at schools she might be interested in. For the most part, birds of a feather… for the most part the recruiting process will tell you what level the player is most likely at.
- Coaches want players who want to go to their school and play for their program.
