2023 College Recruiting Night -Thursday, September 14, 2023

Info Every Parent / Player Needs On College Recruiting

Getting recruited to play in college is a confusing and complicated process.  Parents and players wonder:

  • How do I get the process started?
  • How do I find a good fit?
  • What are the proper steps?
  • How do I improve my chances?

We have helped over 250 of our athletes get in to over 100 colleges. Now we want to share our knowledge and help you better navigate the process.  Our recruiting night is designed to provide you with an overview of the process, hear from college coaches, hear from players/parents who have been through the process and most importantly get answers to your questions.  If you have a child who wants to play lacrosse / sports in college, this is an important first step in learning about that process.
