The Acceleration of the Recruiting Process
As the game of lacrosse continues to grow, we are seeing the recruiting process commence earlier than ever. Matt and I have experienced the momentous changes as we help the members of LacrosseRecruits.com, their parents and the coaches who have used our tool to identify and communicate with players. The pressure to compete in fall recruiting tournaments is forcing high school athletes to make decisions that prior players never faced.
Please take a moment to read Free Fall, the featured recruiting article in Lacrosse Magazine, that discusses the new pressures placed on high school athletes.
I say, “play other sports, and create a LacrosseRecruits.com profile.” A membership allows a player to have a portfolio of his/her academic and athletic achievements in one online location, automatically notify coaches of their interest with a click of a button and still play football or soccer.
