If you're so done with this sport, why come on here to vent your feelings? Talk about hypocritical... Just watch your kid play (or dont play for that matter) for the last time and go find another hobby to [ChillLaxin] about. Obviously little johnny wasn't good enough to play at the next level and you're visibly disgruntled about that. See ya troll

The person is referring to himself. Maybe the the guys kid is committed and sticking with school ball going forward. Or maybe, the kid is a very good player and got tired of playing the sport. I'm sure your wife is waiting to get rid of somethings (YOU) so she could get to the next level

This entire club experience is a garbage shoot, had some great seasons and some disastrous seasons. Some great coaches and non existent coaching. For the most part, club directors are terrible business people that have great lax knowledge and coaching skills. Somewhere along the line, it became all about the almighty dollar.

If you are still in club lax at this age, your kid can play well enough to play some college lacrosse, be it D1, 2 or 3.

This year will tell if it was worth it.

So haven't been on this site in a long time. Just wanted see what was happening. Mine are done, both played in College, one D3 and one D1. Was it all worth it? 100%. I enjoyed every minute of it and now miss it terribly. Were there up and downs and times it actually stunk for both them and me? Sure. However, I wouldn't trade all the one on one time I had with them. The ability to shape them as young men and keep them out of trouble. They both have an incredible work ethic and are not afraid of life's challenges. That comes from pushing yourself against the best as a young man. Sometimes failing sometimes winning. It's not all about winning a National Championship one day, although that would be great. It's about the journey and building a productive, hard working young man. Something that is truly lacking in our society today. Enjoy the ride, think about what you're really trying to achieve. For me it was completely 'worth it"

Nothing better than watching my child play and make friends with both kids from his team as well as competing teams. What I cannot wait to end is the GREED of travel organizations. They have no shame. Makes me ill every time I pay them.

Half are post-September 1, 2003, plus one 2004. I really thought we were going to see a ton of early 2003s and more than one late 2002.

Don't take that number as a reflection of the rest of the ranked and unranked. It is lopsided to the older boys for sure.

The top 10 is a small sample, lets see the top 100 with ages, that is a much better sample size.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2022-11th Grade Fall 2020/Summer 2021 - 09/01/20 03:36 PM
91 Smash is the top team, after that its Igloo and we all know Chan team has fallen off so next few teams are anyone's guess.

It’s not the best teams. It’s best players. How many kids got texts or emails for being a practice player on the best team? Likely not many. Watched the elite 8 and saw the same 10-13 kids on the field.

Yup, find a spot where your son will maximize minutes. And they are Juniors. If you hung onto the D1 dream for your son, it’s time to give it up. It’s not happening at this point. B team players can develop, at this point it is about playing time. How can you go to showcase in the fall having only played limited minutes in summer.

Simply not true. My son is in college and did get calls on Sept. 1, but the D1 school he attends did not reach out to him until the summer of his junior year. So there are months to go.

I have a quick question. Just saw the 91 kid commuted today Norte Dame. I see he is from a town outside Albany. Do these kids commute 3 hours for practice 2x a week? Or do they just get to show up on game days ?

Here is the realty... College Coaches want to watch the best players compete with and against the best players. The clubs want to field the best team possible so that that they can compete with the best teams. Why people have a problem with that is beyond me. Reminds me of the people who think kids should only play with kids from their town. Crazy

According to inside Lacrosse, only 3 22s from Long Island have been committed. My son got some calls from D1 schools and they all said its going to be a long process this year, most likely into next summer.

Easier to recruit talent than to coach good athletes into becoming great athletes. Isn't it their job to do that? Lazy....

While I will agree that Syracuse may not be "ivy" the fact that individuals on this forum disparage a 16 year old kid for going to a traditional lacrosse powerhouse that was this boys dream school is appalling. Are parents that depraved that they mock the choices of 16 year old boys. Syracuse is an excellent school even if its not Ivy. I guess this poster only thinks 8 schools are worth going to. Give me a break.

Nobody is disparaging a 16 year old kid .....it’s the family that is full of themselves that is being disparaged . And Syracuse is NOT even close to the top tier schools academically ( duke, Hopkins, Cornell, uva, etc.....) so get a clue.

Nobody's disparaging a 16 year old kid, b/c he's actually 17! LOL

Syracuse is a fine school, you can do anything you want if you graduate from there but it's not in the same academic league as many other non-Ivy lax powerhouses. The Spallina's annoy people b/c of the constant self promotion, the fake tans and smiles. The real test of how strong the family and the 91 brand is will be with the 2023 twins, one of whom was among the best when they were younger but maybe not so much anymore and the other... well, to put it nicely, he gets a lot more looks than he probably would if not for his last name.

Should have hit the books instead of hitting the wall.

He also had offers from UVA, UMD, Loyola, UNC (all great schools for both academics and athletics) plus many more! He chose Syracuse ... I REPEAT he chose Syracuse!!!

I don't believe anything that the articles say when it comes to the spallinas, sorry but you don't choose syracuse over those other schools if those " offers " were even there . But hey I guess if an article says it ,it just be true lol

There is nothing wrong with Syracuse. It is a fine school with a large connected alumni base and I am sure a great lacrosse alumni base. In all likelihood, the kid is not a student and has no interest in the academic rigors of an ivy. He probably plans on playing off of the family name and connections and making lacrosse his livelihood. Also, he is an eastern LI kid who is probably too country and blue collar to fit in at an ivy-type school - its not like he is a rich Manhasset or Bronxville kid. He seems more country-bumpkin dense jock then woke hipster nerd or rich vineyard vines trust funder.

I understand what you're saying ....and good for him if he lives the school. However , to say he got multiple offers including UVA, Maryland , UNC and going to o syracuse is like saying " I got an offer from Patriots but I'll choose to go with the Jets .

Anyone on this thread stating that he should be embarrassed by attending Syracuse knows nothing about lacrosse. Plain and simple.

You may not like his father. Fine. But to come on a public forum and bash a kid who has worked his tail off since he was a young boy to achieve his dream is just flat out disgusting. You’re pretty sad. Your life must be miserable.

I’m not a Syracuse fan, but now I hope ‘Cuse wins it all and that #22 leads the way.

Go JS.

Why do you care?

They all stack their teams if you look half the Smash and CoachC rosters are packed with out of state kids. Anything to win ! bunch of aholes!

Easier to recruit talent than to coach good athletes into becoming great athletes. Isn't it their job to do that? Lazy....

No not their job. Their job is to manage the best kids they can and market them.

Whether you love the kid or for some reason detest him he is the Number 1 ranked player in the class it has been well documented the amount of offers which makes sense because he is the top ranked player. Syracuse was number 1 ranked team in the country when season ended so lets see the Top ranked #1 recruit went to the #1 ranked team in the country wow yet on this board its picking the JETS instead of the pats lolol weird.
people crack me up my son competes against this kid so I have no allegiance but this is crazy house. Lets talk about real stuff like dead period being extended and the rest of. our kids being screwed from prospect days

He is the best player in the country, obviously he could have gone to any school in the nation. Are you guys really trying to suggest any school including the Ivies have academic standards for the #1 player? Clearly you don’t know a lot of players at those schools and/or have not been through the recruiting process with a top player.

Who Cares....Its all about getting seen and getting an offers. Then figuring out which is the best fit for your kids future.

Yup, find a spot where your son will maximize minutes. And they are Juniors. If you hung onto the D1 dream for your son, it’s time to give it up. It’s not happening at this point. B team players can develop, at this point it is about playing time. How can you go to showcase in the fall having only played limited minutes in summer.

Simply not true. My son is in college and did get calls on Sept. 1, but the D1 school he attends did not reach out to him until the summer of his junior year. So there are months to go.

Yeah right, your son got recruited from the bench

I really love this response. You know this comes from an angry individual that has never been through the recruiting process and never played a meaningful game of lacrosse in his life.


Dead period extended til Jan 1 terrible for 21,22 recruits

Pull or no pull top 3 or 4 players go wherever they want number 1 guy minus ivy goes wherever he wants. Don’t need “pull” when your the best player Like it or not

Congratulations to the kid and his parents. Those on here with the disparaging remarks should be embarrassed. Good for the kid, he is an excellent player and he was able to choose the school that he felt was best for him. Syracuse is an excellent school with a great lacrosse program.

Congratulations and good luck.

What an ignorant statement. You have no idea of what type of future any of these kids will have. Most of the Perennial Top 20 lacrosse programs are all excellent schools and if the players work hard and stay out of trouble they can all have great futures. I only mention the (Top 20) because the discussion was focused on Top Tier recruits and the majority of the top recruits choose to go to the Top 20 caliber programs.

Green is a tough color to wear.

Be happy for all of the kids who are able to find right fit. Your kids mental health and happiness are extremely important. Princeton was just ranked the #1 university for the 10th straight year... over the years I have seen players transfer out of Princeton while other players seem to love it there. To each his own.

Honestly, it’s at the point where it’s about contacts and connections. Look at the all the players that have left that since the creation of the Superteam. They left because there is no value to be on an independent club.

By looking at the sideline they might have even more than 30. They have a ton of kids! These parents must be crazy to pay that guy to scream at their kids and in the end half sit and half play , so foolish!

How about too late now can’t move now. Club is over next summer for this grade. No in person stuff until at least January and who knows if that date holds. 30+ rosters makes exposure that much more difficult. You can probably save money on building a highlight reel, lol. Your son will have lotsa film for a cheerleading spot.

How about too late now can’t move now. Club is over next summer for this grade. No in person stuff until at least January and who knows if that date holds. 30+ rosters makes exposure that much more difficult. You can probably save money on building a highlight reel, lol. Your son will have lotsa film for a cheerleading spot.

25 is too many, 30?

I'm working with a goalie (not my son) in Maryland and wanted to see if anyone has a need or opening at the 2022 level. His local club ended in 8th grade and he was the varsity starter at a Mid-Atlantic boarding school his freshman year. He would come highly recommended for at least a look by a Centennial Conference coach. Any ideas?

Okay, so fair points about rosters. What are your thoughts be on a roster of an elite to get reps or be on a single A or B team and get the game reps. What’s better game reps or practice reps vs the best players. I understand both, but at this point in the process playing time is most important.

I think there is a distinction when its just an informational post ( BOTC will probably put up there own announcement in a few days about the commitment) rather than an insult or evaluation of skill or lack thereof.
Any kid going to Duke to play lax is a newsworthy event.. congrats to him.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Adult amusement - 10/01/20 08:29 PM
I would agree with you , except for there was nothing negative said about a kid . Just stating that one of the top players in the grade committed that's all . It's positive news .

Yes. This seems to be a new norm of the 91 when they are missing a few kids (from their top team). They will bring up a few kids and then just call the the team “Team 91” instead of by the actual team name. They do this, god forbid they lose they can say it wasn’t really the top team. They recently did this with machine a few weeks ago as well

None of you want to hear this but imagine when your child goes to college when the numbers are even greater and everyone is all something. Reality is these top teams with big rosters will prepare a kid better to play college and challenge for playing time rather have mommy and daddy whining about how many players are on a roster. Just a fact of life. Its coming quicker than you think.

Most of the kids that committed are not looking to play and possibly get hurt. So you will see a varied roster .

So that’s about the upper 3/4 D1s have close to 300 committed. Not a lot spots left and the window is shrinking.

Early commits doesn't mean anything! Lots of top players get recruited their senior year. If you read the back ground of some of the most gifted like Rob Pannell D1 colleges didn't even give him a second look because he was a late bloomer. Ask college coaches how many early commits self destruct, no thank you for my son!

Yes, during normal years. But it sounds like rosters are filled with extra eligibility players. Now comes the conversation do you go for a lower D1 to play D1 or the Top D2 or D3 school. Let’s just say you can likely take Virginia, Hopkins and NC etc off the list.

When lax fans have to hear bragging about how he played 2 years up, when in reality he’s a hold back, people get negative. He played up and with probably two generational players. His best years at Cuse will be freshman and sophomore year when Scanlan takes the pressure off of him. If he doesn’t win a championship 1st two years it’s not happening...the 2nd coming of Jojo.

Takes a lot to do this on this board but whattttttt the cuse recruiting class headlined by this player who whether it was one year or two played up( i was unsure if he was held back or not) is the top rated recruiting class and he is the top rated player in class No one can predict beyond their freshman year how good they’ll be because No one knows who their 23,24,25 classss are If they are similar to 22 class they’ll be final 4 for four years He is a fantastic player must admit I was skeptical but watching all summer compete in same events as my son I am a Big believer and I usually don’t like Long Island people 😃

I agree we played you guys and RmTrue Blue is a solid team no doubt. Whoever said garbage probably has a kid on some B team wishing his kid played at that level.

So I guess the Rebels are exactly what everyone but the parents thought they were a good A team but definetly not a AA team. Going 0-3 today says it all. Stop with all the top team talk!

Rebels are a good lacrosse team. They are just on the cusp of being very good and of AA caliber. They have 2 phenomenal goalies, kids hustle and play hard. There is a lot of teams on the island, it’s to bad it took so long for this team to come together as it’s almost over. Best of luck to all the players in the recruiting process!!

their are two things holding this Rebels team back. One, coaches kids automatically get to play on the team (both coaches are jerks)! Two, they put their kids school friends on the team!

They were asked to play last minute and had 15-16 kids, missing a few of their big guns and top kids. Pretty good effort for the amount they were missing.

Unlike other teams, rebels don’t change their team name when missing kids.

All teams are missing players here and there at this age. One thing I can say is when I watched the rebels play last weekend against Igloo and got to see them play Legacy. That roster is definitely a AA roster. Don't think that team is losing to Blue Star lol.

With colleges giving all their players an additional year many current high school players will be forced to PG a year as rosters will be over crowded

After 91 please tell me who is better than Rebels and take JS kid off 91 and there isn’t much of a difference. Our kids have shown very well against the best teams and that is a fact

Wouldn’t that be the same as moving up to the AA division? Lost by 3 to prime time and express north, and leading edge better than those 2 and it was a game until the final minutes. I’d say that is a good showing. All these NLF teams are supposed to be so dominant. They’re not. Maybe smash is but 2-20 teams are all the same. Rebels can beat all of them and lose to all of them.

So answer this question: besides smash who is better on Long Island than rebels? Express-probably igloo-no legacy-no united-no. Soo gues the only AA teams on Long Island are 91 and maybe express. I guess Long Island lacrosse isn’t good anymore. Lol.

Club, but depends on the club. Some of these clubs don’t have a network big enough and the ones that do, you better be a starter on the top team. Otherwise the recruiting falls on you.

Club year coaches are key from the experience with my son. Do they know the college coaches well? is your team at the right showcase tournaments playing top level? How committed are your coaches to making sure they go to bat for your kid vs. just looking at players are $ signs? Critical questions to ask and if you have this do not hop clubs. Hope this helps.

Having been through the recruitment cycle with my older son and now going through with my middle guy. I can honestly say. Every situation is different. I’ve seen kids jump from club to club some it helped and some it hurt Depends on the kid and the club. Top clubs get kids recruited, they care about the top team first. Their second team kids get recruited but they are last on the list. The “B” clubs get kids recruited. There are recruiting teams that get kids recruited. There are so many options out there. First you need to be honest about your kids abilities. Then you need to do the leg work on your own. Individual showcases matter. Prospect days matter. Your film matters Some club coaches and directors are very helpful others not so much. Coaches and directors connection and reputation matter. HS coaches matter. All college coaches call them for their opinion
Grades matter!!!!!! Make sure your son is doing their best!! Pick a school for academic reasons. Not lacrosse.
Ask questions with your club and HS coaches. Get their opinions. Good luck!!!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2022-11th Grade Fall 2020/Summer 2021 - 11/26/20 12:28 AM
All I’ll say is...if your son is not recruited at this point, you must do the work. They either haven’t seen your son play in person and need to because the film wasn’t enough or there is reason like grades, etc. so now it’s on you. Just facts because if you look at the inside lacrosse 2022 commit list there is about 250 2022s committed so far. So you probably want to start looking D2 and D3, not to say D1 is done by any stretch, because they will commit well into Senior year, but you need to start looking at every level and have a game plan. D2 and D3 is not like you’re settling, it’s still a high level of lacrosse at those levels.

A true AA team will have great success is getting kids recruited. It will not matter if the Rebels or any other 2022 team is AA or a top five team if the director can’t get the players recruited. Are any of the 22 Rebels committed? Where? What is being done by your director to help in recruiting? If Express, 91, Igloo, Legacy and even FLG get more kids recruited into better colleges does it really matter if your kid played AA in high school. The true test will be where all the kids go to college. Hearing that 22 Rebels parents are not happy with how recruiting has gone so far. Could mean the parents are overrating the talent. Best advise Is stop claiming AA status because is does not matter if your kid is not happy where he lands to play college lacrosse. Let’s see where the Rebels players go to play college lacrosse. That will be the true test if they really are AA.

I give MB credit for starting his own club, but if you are going to start a new program you have to start from scratch. That means not just carrying teams over from Outlaws but having tryouts and taking the best kids to build a team! That turned us off to play for them! And the schedule were every weekend your in Delaware or Maryland is way too expensive! P.S. And Daddy coaching!

Almost all their teams started from scratch and are pretty darn good, definitely the most up and coming club. Have a kid on 2 of teams (including 22) and both get a lot!

PB jumped ship and took those teams over to the Rebels complete with the coaches and gutted what talent was left of the Outlaws! Now that club is just a shell of what he spent years building!

This is a business for these guys. It happens in every industry. Workers leave and start out on their own. When they leave they take customers to the new business. After you start a new business you must produce to keep those customers. Rebels 2021 had great success with recruiting. I hear the Rebels did nothing to help those kids. They happened to have some talented players that got recruited on their own. Now the Rebels take credit for that success. They then tell customers how great they are at recruiting. From the low numbers of 2022 Rebels that have been recruited so far it looks like they will need to have some help to get recruited. If the Rebels don’t help these kids word will get out that the Rebels do nothing to help with recruiting and they will loose business. People will leave for other clubs. That is what happened to the Outlaws and the same will probably happen to the Rebels in the future.

From the low numbers of 2022 Rebels that have been recruited so far it looks like they will need to have some help to get recruited. If the Rebels don’t help these kids word will get out that the Rebels do nothing to help with recruiting and they will loose business. People will leave for other clubs. That is what happened to the Outlaws and the same will probably happen to the Rebels in the future.

Once a sheister, always a sheister.

How do you get on a showcase team, any in this area

How has everyone, not a parent of a 4 star etc, been navigating recruiting. What are some successful things you have done to aide the process for example, club involvement, film, showcase, etc

Payola, Politics and Cronyism. You don't have to be the best on the team.

Same here. My older son did not play for Express, 91 or Igloo and did not even attend prospect camps but had many calls on September 1 with offers. Some Ivy League offers ahead of ranked players from top teams. He did not have a ranking either. Never attended those events to get the ranking. I believe if you want a ranking you could pay for it at this point. Best advice would be to make sure your son fills out each college he is interested in questionnaire which you can find online. Also send a video with an email to each coach of the college he is interested in. Despite the luck that my son had It is good to go to Prospect camps if they will be holding them.

Good luck.

Best compliment is when one tells the truth and it is NOT believed because the non believer can’t do it. Thanks.

The way I see it the post gave useful advise and is talking about the older son as a reference point to show the guy did it before. It shows what he did worked. Read the post again without a doubting mind. It gives good advise. Where is your advice to others? I bet most people did not know how important it is to fill out the questioners. Everyone knows about videos and emails but not filling out the questioners. People appreciate the advice but not those who attack the one who are trying to help others. Keep the advise coming!!!

Here is some advice - don’t have spelling and grammatical errors in your questionnaire!

Actually spelling and grammar errors are fine. I would not be worried if it wasn’t perfect. Because there are parents, and you you know it, that review and edit correspondence with coaches. Don’t you think they know after 10,000 emails and texts if it’s a parent or some 16 year old. It’s okay not to be perfect.

So it looks like the D1 recruiting is mostly done until the summer for this class and there will be D1 commits right through Sr year, but it will be very selective. The first wave is through. So what are the next steps for those who didn’t get that D1 look?

Keep working!! When the season starts back up, hopefully coaches will be allowed to attend events. Get in front of the coaches that your son wants to play for. Yes the big programs are pretty much done but Plenty of D 1 spots are still open on the lower end. D2 and D3 are still finishing their 21 class.

I've read this board for 8 years and this is my first post. I was compelled to write because of the sincerity of parents looking for a realistic pathway to play D1 lax.

For those that did not get D1 looks, here are the options: Post Graduate year, consider teams in bottom half of D1, Top D2, D3 schools and Community College. Send video to Coaches at targeted schools and follow up with attending Prospect Days when they become available. You will know if your son is a D1 player when D1 coaches speak with him. It really is that simple. Painful but true.

At the same time Academics play a huge role. Your son may be valuable to a Program if their GPA and SAT are above average compared to the schools acceptance data. If your son is focused on D1 lacrosse and has the size, speed and athleticism (not skill, that can be taught) according to an objective evaluation invest in an SAT Tutor. A coach may be able to use your son's academics to pull in a stud with an SAT/GPA too low to gain admission by averaging the two applications. Increasing an SAT score is likely to increase academic money which is much more bountiful than lax scholarships. Lax scholarships are mostly offered to nationally ranked players which does not apply to the players we are discussing.

I feel bad for your kid. I guess he is not getting the calls YOU wanted. My advise to you is not to attend the parent meeting with the coaching staff. If you do choose to attend please say nothing.

I agree with this. One thing I would add is if your kid did not get a call yet from any D1 school it is not over. Follow the advice above but continue with targeting mid level and lower/high end D1 programs. 2021 Friend of ours had no D1 calls until this past October and committed to a top 30 lacrosse program. Great academic school too.

Thanks a great post. I personally feel that a low D1 school is a tough choice unless your son is in love with the school and area of study. Then no-brainer. However, kids do pick the program first and at this point the best programs are D2 and D3. So it is an interesting choice, D1 with a program that isn’t that successful vs a D2 or D3 program that is nationally ranked. I bet a lot kids must be wrestling with this scenario right now.

So sound off, which do you think is the best choice?

You don’t pick a school for a lacrosse program. You choose for fit. One thing about most D1 programs is they offer great academic support. D3 most do not. Not sure about D2. So pick the school that is the best fit socially and in academics.

It may not be a tough choice initially because the school is D1 and it's really exciting. What's tough is losing 50 plus games over a 4 year period and having the motivation and discipline to lift, eat properly and limit social life.

There is no blanket answer on what Division to play lacrosse. My takeaways are to push forward with D1 and for parents to start to consider teams outside of D1 and communicate it to their son.

Many top D2/D3 /Community Colleges ramp up recruiting in the fall after their target players are not being recruited by the top 50% of D1 programs. So, it is a good idea to visit the D2/3 schools and speak with the coaches in the summer.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2022-11th Grade Fall 2020/Summer 2021 - 12/05/20 07:23 PM
It sounds like based on the responses that it is good to start D2 and D3 reach outs now, Considering so many 2022s have committed. Somebody said over 250 commits so far.

I think you really have to evaluate this from school to school. My brother went to Wagner college over 20 years ago. It was D 1 men’s program. However, when he was there their head coach wasn’t even a full time employee. He was a grad assistant. Which means they kids had a new coach every 2 years. As a result the team got crushed and my brother was miserable. I’m sure things are different now but you get my point. In my opinion you are much better off going to an elite D2 school than a bottom of the barrel D1 program. Of course this all being that he loves that same D2 school.

I've been playing this game for over one hundred years! Way back when I went to school with Ben franklin! I made my first stick out of a branch and some vines! I know everything about everything, I stand on the side line with my big fat belly and my Starbucks coffee while my son scores two hundred goals a game! I'm writing his post because sharing is caring!

Very simple.... help your son pick the best situation for them The decision should be based on which school will be best for him. Which school will challenge him and get him ready for the next phase of his life. It’s not just about lacrosse it’s about preparing for the future.

It could be simple; unfortunately, many parents put lacrosse before their child's education. College is a big business; many fail to realize that not every child needs to attend. Nevertheless, if you are one of those parents pushing your kid to attend college just to play lacrosse, you are doing them a huge disservice.

100% agree. You have to consider the school and the program. No disrespect to schools that are low end D1, but it’s not one or the other. It’s a balance. For example, if the academics were similar, do you pick low D1 vs top 10 D2 or D3?

So navigating recruiting is becoming so confusing. I know D1 schools are still recruiting, but I gotta believe they are becoming very selective.

Send videos and emails to D1 , D2 and D3. You never know what school will be a good fit until you visit and ask questions. Something to consider is that most D1 programs give a lot of academic support. Of course some give none. D3 is the opposite. They give very little academic support. As a result, a D1 program that may not be as good in academics may be a better fit than a high academic D3 school because many D1 schools give a lot of academic support. Don’t limit the schools. Contact and if invited visit as many as possible that have a chance to be a good fit.

If your son is focused on D1 lacrosse and has the size, speed and athleticism (not skill, that can be taught) according to an objective evaluation invest in an SAT Tutor. A coach may be able to use your son's academics to pull in a stud with an SAT/GPA too low to gain admission by averaging the two applications. Increasing an SAT score is likely to increase academic money which is much more bountiful than lax scholarships. Lax scholarships are mostly offered to nationally ranked players which does not apply to the players we are discussing.

Thanks a great post. I personally feel that a low D1 school is a tough choice unless your son is in love with the school and area of study. Then no-brainer. However, kids do pick the program first and at this point the best programs are D2 and D3. So it is an interesting choice, D1 with a program that isn’t that successful vs a D2 or D3 program that is nationally ranked. I bet a lot kids must be wrestling with this scenario right now.

So sound off, which do you think is the best choice?

I think you really have to evaluate this from school to school. My brother went to Wagner college over 20 years ago. It was D 1 men’s program. However, when he was there their head coach wasn’t even a full time employee. He was a grad assistant. Which means they kids had a new coach every 2 years. As a result the team got crushed and my brother was miserable. I’m sure things are different now but you get my point. In my opinion you are much better off going to an elite D2 school than a bottom of the barrel D1 program. Of course this all being that he loves that same D2 school.

100% agree. You have to consider the school and the program. No disrespect to schools that are low end D1, but it’s not one or the other. It’s a balance. For example, if the academics were similar, do you pick low D1 vs top 10 D2 or D3?

Send videos and emails to D1 , D2 and D3. You never know what school will be a good fit until you visit and ask questions. Something to consider is that most D1 programs give a lot of academic support. Of course some give none. D3 is the opposite. They give very little academic support. As a result, a D1 program that may not be as good in academics may be a better fit than a high academic D3 school because many D1 schools give a lot of academic support. Don’t limit the schools. Contact and if invited visit as many as possible that have a chance to be a good fit.

I agree send film to as many schools as your son is potentially interested in. It’s just a conversation. At this point you should not just be sending emails to D1 schools, even if your son is having a dialogue. Chances are that school is talking to several kids for a few spots. And then what when your son doesn’t make the cut?

I fear that college athletics will begin to contract severely, especially if they cancel spring sport seasons again. How long can they keep these non income producing programs afloat?

This is why you use your lacrosse talent to get a higher education. Lacrosse is only played for so long, get to a spot that sets you up for future success.

Consider how much revenue the school makes when you have 50+ kids getting no athletic money, generally from higher income families with good grades coming to your school who otherwise might not. There is at least one DIII school who I know awards a bonus for every kid the team carries. Needless to say the roster is huge.

IMHO there is going be less spots for the 2022s and likely the 2023s until the extra eligibility and the impact of the pandemic cycles through. Won’t be an impact to the top 100 players or so, but for other kids looking for D3 and D2 spots, there will be impact.

Besides the top players in the country or players on teams with a shot at a National Championship, how many players will take the extra year of eligibility.

The 2022 2023 2024 class will all affected by this pandemic recruiting you all have to realize the scholarship gets readjusted back to 12.6 and then you will have many top IVy recruits with an extra year of eligibility and that in turn eats up scholarship dollars. Then it becomes a trickle down effect kids transfer from top program to lesser program to play more and that in turn affects your recruiting . I do think this is going to be very difficult for recruits to find places with the amount of kids on a team the top programs will be taking less recruits that is a fact . If you are a speciality player example faceoff , goalie it is going to be even harder ......

You think you're doing these parents a favor by ranking their kids where they clearly don't belong but all you're doing is embarrassing the kids.

Absolutely. And one can see who paid for the write ups. They’re typically very good players but very selfish and focused on themselves to get recruited. Typically the non team player who focus on themselves to get points. The ball hogs. That’s how one player is looked at in our community anyway.

There’s a write up that literally only mentions that the kid is a lefty and how that’s devastating for defenses bc they don’t see many lefties. with?!??!?!? That is the most insane nonsense I’ve ever read. Has the ranker ever watched a lacrosse game?

College Coaches all have “their own” list and those lists are the ones that matter most. The only other “list” that has proven to be very credible is the Under Armour All-American Senior list / roster / team. And yes, I do realize that some excellent players do not make that list but from what I have seen, the players who do make the list are pretty darn good.

Yeah, nothing like paying another 75k to have your kid play lacrosse in his 5th year.

No one is paying anything if they are “taking the year off”. Also, many at Ivy’s receive more in “financial aid” than players at other schools receive in “athletic scholarships”. The Ivy’s can make it very affordable especially for families with multiple kids in college. Athletic Scholarships are limited, there is no limit to Ivy Financial Aid.

Fair - but they also overlooked a stud lefty attackman for the same reason -- ACL injury -- so it makes sense that both of those guys were missing if neither of them will be playing the HS season this year.

Who is it that actually puts the list together? And for sophomores most never played a HS game yet.

Most “lists” are not based on HS games / performance. IL Young Guns, Under Armour Underclass Team, Under Armour Senior All-American are primarily based on Club and or tryouts for underclass team.

I do not know how this list was put together but it looks like a fair list. There will always be a hand full of players who are overlooked, it’s not an exact science.

It has been said on here many times, “The only lists that really matter are the “lists” that the college coaches keep.
