700. How long did it take you to count all of them ?

Seems like more were at the two MD showcases in the Fall

Its one coaches mission to make everyone feel that her is elite because they went to Dallas.

Oh boy here we go again. Your grudge is so transparent and ridiculous. There are dozens of posts on here about coaches being on sidelines in Dallas. It isn’t just one team it’s all of the teams that attended grow up

No grudge and no names. Just stating the obvious.
You are arguing about anything and everything to keep the event in the limelight.
Ok- we get it, you went and love yourself but can we move on? It’s one stop in a very long road.

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

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

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.[/quote]

I think most of this is helpful. Keep it classy BOTC.

I’ve posted 2-3 times on this topic and I’m not a coach, but a parent of a 24 who attended. It seems like people who didn’t attend are trying to use others as a scapegoat for their program messing this one up. That’s no one’s fault other than the club owners and office staff. The few clubs that didn’t attend can’t blame other coaches, parents, or the iwcla for this. It isn’t about loving ourselves for attending. The question on if the event had coaches on 24 sidelines was presented as well as if it was a good event for players to be seen. The simple answer is yes. Over 600 coaches lined on 23 AND 24 sidelines definitely helps the kids who attended. No one is bad mouthing your team for NOT attending. You need to get over yourself and stop blaming others for the shortcomings.

^ true: there is no discussion is there were a lot of coaches there. It’s a fact. Also a fact that teams that went got something out of it. Now comes the winter, spring, and summer. If you thought parents were crazy now just wait. Buckle up y’all.

Parent or not?
Not sure why you are taking this event so personal and needing to sell us all on how great it was or wasn’t. Unless of course you have something to gain in $$$ or status?
but you are beating a dead horse at this point.
We got your point many days ago and now you are arguing over the number of coaches, the impact of these coaches, then how to tell how many coaches and then circling back to arguing some more. Maybe you should find a new hobby or marketing strategy.

Recruiting director: a zoom on recruiting and tournaments, contact to colleges pre/post tournaments, email templates, conferences with players about top choices.

Coach: multiple zooms on how to use connect lax, one about sports recruits tomorrow, reviewed recruiting profiles to help market our daughter properly, has helped us make film/taught us how to make our own, contact to coaches pre/post tournaments, runs social media, flyers for coaches with roster and jersey #s, first email templates and feedback through google drive, help with follow up emails, help with end of fall emails, multiple emails and chats about different schools camps/showcases/etc.

Coach and recruiting director seem to go back and forth before sending things out and note it when sending us information. The support we have received is amazing. We are beyond grateful.

Have your daughter be proactive and email coaches at the schools she is interested in. Send them a link to her web page. Send a link to her highlight video. Ask when they are having any prospect days/camps. Send them a list of her upcoming game schedule and which showcases she will be at. Get on their email list. These are the best ways to have coaches get to know you. Get in front of them at Prospect days. The chances of getting a "good" look at a game they are there to watch is very difficult.

This advice is what our team has been giving us, not much help otherwise.

That's awesome. And hopefully by the summer, the recruiting directors will be actively advocating on your girls behalf before the contact period. Our recruiting director has always said her busiest two weeks of the year and the two weeks before contact period.
