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

As a high school athlete with Red Devil Lacrosse you are provided full access to IMLCARecruits, powered by SportsRecruits. Student-athletes should make sure that their IMLCARecruits recruiting profile is complete and up to date so that coaches can learn more about them, both academically and athletically. After completing your recruiting profile, start researching schools to create a list that’s right for you and introduce yourself to college coaches!

4

UPLOAD YOUR VIDEO TO CREATE YOUR PLAYER HIGHLIGHT VIDEO

If you want to be recruited as a collegiate athlete, having video available for coaches to view is crucial to your recruiting process. College coaches, now more than ever, want to be able to recruit from the comfort of their own home or office. Therefore, having video on your profile will make it that much easier for college coaches to properly evaluate you. There are several types of video you should upload, including but not limited to raw game footage and highlight reels.

5

COMMUNICATE WITH COLLEGE COACHES

After you have identified a school that interests you, send an email to a college coach to let them know that you are interested in their program. Tell them a little bit about yourself, with your completed athlete profile and highlight video. NCAA DI College Coaches have restrictions and can't engage in conversations with you until September 1st of your Junior year of high school. However, it’s best to introduce yourself well before to increase your chances of being contacted during the fall of Junior year!

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.
