VIEW OUR VLOG RECRUITING SERIES

If your athlete has an interest in play lacrosse in college, whether in a club program or at a highly competitive level, we encourage you to start by viewing our recruiting vlog series. This will help you set expectations of the process and increase your understanding of college recruiting before you invest in your athlete’s future college endeavor. 

1

REACH OUT TO RED DEVIL COACHES

Our coaches are ready and able to help! Each of our coaches is well-versed in the recruiting process as many of them were collegiate athletes themselves or have helped hundreds of athletes get into programs that match their academic interests and athletic talents. Check with your current coach, Coach Chakey, or Coach Olive to get 1:1 guidance on how the process will work for your athlete.

2

REGISTER FOR NCAA CERTIFICATION ACCOUNT

If your athlete is considering Division I or Division II programs need to create a Certification Account through the NCAA Eligibility Center. You will be issued a certification number that allows you to make official visits to DI and DII schools or to sign a National Letter of Intent. If you are considering a Divison III program or undecided, you can register for a free profile page and acquire a NCAA ID.

CREATE YOUR RECRUITING PROFILE

Student-athletes should create a recruiting profile to tell coaches about themselves, both academically and athletically. For your convenience, we have created a template for you follow or download. After completing your recruiting profile, be sure to send it via email to prospective coaches.

CREATE YOUR PLAYER HIGHLIGHT VIDEO

College coaches aren’t always present to watch a student-athlete’s best plays, so it’s important to capture footage at games and create a lacrosse highlight video that can be shared online with coaches. A highlight video is an athlete’s opportunity to impress college coaches with their versatility, lacrosse IQ and athleticism in a few brief minutes. Coaches want to see performance at lacrosse tournaments, showcases and college prospect days against challenging competition. There is no need to included footage of individual skills, they want to see you in action! To learn more, view our vlog series.

COMMUNICATE WITH COLLEGE COACHES

Coaches want to know if you are interested in their program. As soon as you identify a school that interests you, you should start reaching out to them as early as your sophomore year. Currently, email is the default method, but you can also call, write a letter or communicate via online recruiting services. You should inform coaches of your interest as well as where you will be playing for in-person evaluation. Coaches have restrictions and can't contact you until July 1st after your junior year of high school. It's best to inform them of your interest far before your 11th grade summer as the likelihood of being discovered at that point is not very high.

ATTEND PROSPECT CAMPS, COMBINES, TOURNAMENTS, AND SHOWCASE EVENTS

Sports camps, combines, tournaments and showcases are an important way to gain experience as well as exposure to college coaches. These are opportunities for coaches to evaluate a group of players at one time. The more chances they have to evaluate a player in different settings, the greater likelihood they will recruit them. These types of events are critical for being recruited, but they can be costly and time consuming. Your coach can advise which opportunities might be the best fit for your skills and interest.
