Then change clubs.



Team Elevate is running a bus tour on the east coast for recruiting age girls. It's a great idea and can't believe that other clubs have not done this before. Great way for girls to see schools, meet coaches and players and a great bonding experience for the teams.

What if the tour doesn't include the school your daughter is interested in? Then who is it great for the person who organizes the trip? Doesn't sound great to me.


Worst case, you get to see some other schools and have something to compare to when you do visit your top schools. Best case, you fall in love with a school you never considered. Either way, you spend a few days with your teammates off the field - I don't see any downside and I'm not involved with either club.

No need to edit this edition of your drivel (SAT Word of the Day). Why are you completely absorbed with the activities around the Top Guns program?

Does anyone have real details about what Elevate is doing? What schools, how many days, is it open to non-Elevate players?

Thank you for the kind words and interest. The College Forum here on BOTC is designed exactly for this purpose. On the Ribbon Bar, click "Forum List" and you will see the College Forum in the Lacrosse Library.

Either club? I thought they were talking about Elevate doing this, who else is doing it? I have done exactly this with my daughter and a group of friends from several different teams and went on to play at prestigious colleges summer tournaments. Completely player and parent organized and it has worked out very well. No bus but like that idea too. Is this idea organized by elevate or by parents and players? We have also opted out of similar events because of lack of interest for college, tournament and or coaches present. The idea of the summer clubs we play for is to have the teams play in at least several tournament with a good cross section of exposure to a wide variety of recruiters, are these clubs failing us that we have to go out on our own to get the desired exposure?

If you think your club is going to do everything for you, you're failing quite well on your own....

Probably a TG has-been, or never-will be, who just can't let go, and is unhappy on YJ team 4 or 5, so he just hangs around here to criticize continuously. It's people like this hat make me happy they're not actually with TG.

My opinion is that clubs can't be everything for everyone. Most of them work very hard to improve the club which by default makes the kids better and more recruitable (if that's a word...lol).
Parental involvement and guidance can never be replaced and is critical in the formation of solid character and values. Not to mention the invaluable experiences that will be shared when parents take their kids to college showcases and clinics. By the way, it is the most effective way to see the campus, see the culture of the current teams players and get a great look from the coaches.
This formula has worked great for us and we have some great memories and an amazing college recruiting result to show for it. The clubs are a great tool to be utilized to improve your players skills and a great resource to get your foot in the "recruiting door" but the rest is up to you....as it should be.

That's an awesome, encouraging take on it. We're just starting the process, with our 2017 daughter, and so far it's already been great, and I agree with your take on it 100%!

I did not want to hijack the TG thread but I thought that if you wanted the details I would let you know them. This is a team organized event and not a parent event. We are visiting the following schools via a coach bus in this order Yale, UCONN, Boston College, Harvard, Brown, Bryant, Connecticut College and Fairfield.

Great idea! A nice variety of schools and a great starting point for the girls and their families. It's a fun and exciting time in their lives.... I think this will make it more fun for them. Good luck.
