So with the recruiting getting earlier and earlier, is anyone taking the standardized test any earlier.

What are the possibilities of a student playing 2 sports in college? I am sure it is frowned upon at the highest levels due to the "off season" requirements but what about at other levels? Also, how does it affect scholarship money, if any?

The landscape for standardized tests has changed since the 1980s with both exams taken and accepted equally across the United States.

There are some students that excel with the four part ACT over the SAT I format. Similarly, there are students who excel in Reading/Mathematics over Science/Social Studies placing the SAT I exam in their wheelhouse. Therefore, BOTC along with many institutions recommend sitting for each exam at least once.

Remember to check the admission requirements on your target institutions. Some of the variations you will find include:
  • SAT I or ACT alone
  • ACT with Writing
  • SAT I with Two SAT II Subject Exams
Also, be sure that you know the deadline for the admissions office on these exams. Some institutions will not accept December or January exams during their admission's cycle.

On January 30th, an article was circulated in a major publication citing that recruitment from traditional hotbed locations had dropped with the entering collegiate Class of 2017.

[Linked Image]

While New [lacrosse], Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusettes, Connecticut and Washington DC account for 57.9% of the current Division I players, the incoming class only sees 54.8% of players from these same region.

Is this a cause for concern? Well, if you are from Long Island, you cannot help but to notice the drop from 13.9% to 12.0% removing nearly 1/7th of the total. Could we be at the tipping point of the shift in regional representation?

On the flip side, New Jersey has seen growth in the same volume, percertage-wise.

Long Islanders and New Jersey residents should be very aware of this year's trend.

The sport is growing. It's the USA!!!!! Anyone can be anything they want if they work at it. I would not worry Long Island. Stop being paranoid !!! California and Texas have huge population and can work outside all year round. Was just a matter of time!!! Just wait till inner city kids start finding ways to afford lacrosse equipment. That's when the worrying should officially begin!!!

Academics than athletics - any idea how the
Recruiting process works at a school like this?

William and Mary is absolutely an academically focused institution, noted for their classroom rather than athletic field teams. There will likely be nothing unique about the W&M recruiting cycle compared with other institutions.

There are several ways to gain some insight to their recruiting plans. The obvious solution would be to speak with the recruiting coach or anyone on the coaching staff (Fratzke, Mathews, or Teeters). The problem you will face is that this is the first year at W&M for all three of these coaches so remember that they have not even gone through their own first recruiting cycle as yet. (The head coach accepted the position in July 2013 with assistants named in August and September.)

In a case like this, your daughter is strongly encouraged to contact girls on the roster from the local area (NY, NJ, or your local area) who might be willing to share details - while most easily done during an on-site visit, your daughter might be able to strike up a discussion over Facebook or similar.

Process - she is only in 8th grade but plays
For club that girls are recruited in 9th as well
As in her high school -I don't think a school
Like William and Mary recruits that early

BOTC did some recent searches regarding lacrosse scholarship averages on an NCAA Division and institutional basis. While we have not validated every line in this report for obvious reasons, we did want to share this information that discusses scholarship totals. With only 196 scholarship based NCAA Division I and Division II institutions, this report slices information in a very unique manner.

Cage great link! I think most parents are unaware or uninformed about the actual amounts of aid available or being offered for D1 men's lacrosse. On average the "early commit" is getting about 20% athletic funding. Only the rare few are getting even 50% athletic money or more. Bottom line stay in the honors track and get the 4.0 it will get you a better chance at scholarship money than lax will any day. Also you don't need to be the "stud" to get the academic money! This is a good thing to share with the youth forums.

Regarding the questionnaires that each college requests, we are doing them for all colleges my daughter is interested in. Additionally, we are doing a few more for "reach schools"

Is it a good idea to get the kids name into these additional college data bases? It's a lot of work, hopefully worth it???
