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.

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.

Right now they’re really pushing us to get seen through tournaments and other opportunities. They also are hosting clinics with college coaches to get extra looks

OK, totally respect that. However, a lot of people come to BOTC to hopefully get info. From parents on the clubs they are currently on.

Especially the ones who have younger kids who are trying to find a club for their kids. It’s good to hear from parents what they do and don’t like about their kids current clubS.

I personally talk to parents from different clubs to try and get their perspective. It helped a lot with my kid, and I didn’t waste years on her first club because I knew they did zero to help in recruiting from talking to the older kids parents.

I'm sure it will become a big controversy as everything is on here but we are with jesters. The entire staff is extremely helpful and the recruiting director and coaches are working well together to support us.

There are a few clubs that are doing this well.
Our club has been doing all of this for a while
and a few of her friends elsewhere seem to get the same.
It’s hard work and not just on the field!

This is our 3rd time doing this and it can seem overwhelming. Don’t be afraid to Ask questions but don’t stress. Plenty of opportunities to play and be seen.

Sorry should have clarified my original post that you replied to asking about the team was the one that said recruiting director and coaches and listed what we’ve done so far. I also have friends on other teams who are also happy with the recruiting advice given so far.

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[/quote]

Get that video up if not done already. Connect Lax we like but several others .

Don’t be afraid to ask but work towards being somewhat self sufficient. Some of these clubs have A and B teams at every age. That’s a ton of girls needing help from directors. Be aware that many girls get lost. It’s up to you to advocate for your player.
A few clubs only have one team per age which is a big plus if you can get on.

We like female non parent coaches that have played and coached at the highest level. HS and college if you can find it. Lord knows we pay enough and deserve it.

If they want it-Plenty of places to play for women D1-D2-D3 and club, It’s about getting an education and maybe having some fun at the same time.

Come on no one comes on here for real info, with anonymous posting everyone comes on to bash everyone and everything!

Yes! The zooms we have done with our coach have been extremely helpful because they teach us what to do and give us feedback. A big emphasis on kids doing it and not us for our kids. We are grateful for the hammerhead box jesters has given us, but we know in the end up comes down to our daughter doing her part.

As a parent I need to know…
Who’s the coach of this team?

Not sure why this corrected to hammerhead. I was saying they have given our team a hammerhead kit or hammerhead box like a set of things to use to help us.
