Homecoming Weekend Recap & New LacrosseRecruits.com Developments

Last weekend, Matt and I headed to Wesleyan for Homecoming Weekend. The weekend was full of good times and opportunities to connect with friends and fellow alumnus. We even threw on our pads and got back on the field to take some runs against current Wesleyan lacrosse players.

Matt and I have been extremely busy as we approach 4 months of operation. We have broken the 200-member mark, and are almost ready to roll out travel team pages, launch the girl’s side of LacrosseRecruits.com and incorporate interactive java tours. There has been so much great feedback from the lacrosse community about these features that we are very anxious to get everything up and going.

Also, we launch our new ad management system in the upcoming weeks. We recently negotiated advertising arrangements with Under Armour and Vineyard Vines. Both of these companies are increasingly active in the lacrosse community and we are thrilled to work with them as we grow our business.

Belated Thank You: We want to thank Dan Latzman, the sports editor of Wesleyan’s school newspaper, for running a story on LacrosseRecruits.com and our recent success. You can click here to read the article.

A High School Athlete's Recruiting Guide To College Lacrosse

In the last year, the LacrosseRecruits team worked to put together a recruiting guide that would make high school lacrosse players and their parent's lives easier. We have answered hundreds of emails and have spent countless hours helping players and parents navigate the recruiting process. We are happy to offer A High School Athlete's Recruiting Guide To College Lacrosse to the lacrosse community. We set out to provide a resource that answers difficult questions and sets players on their path to success, and I know our guide accomplishes that task.

A High School Athlete's Recruiting Guide To College Lacrosse is your road map to achieving results, tracking progress and evaluating college programs. The guide addresses many issues including:
1. Admissions
2. Financial Aid
3. NCAA & MCLA Eligibility
4. What Coaches look for in a player
5. How to get noticed by college coaches
6. The parents role and responsibility
7. The recruiting timeline
8. How to be proactive, a personal "action plan" and more.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly.

Thank you, Chris Meade
