Unlike last year, no torrential rain fell in Downingtown, Pennsylvania this weekend allowing NXT’s Summer Invitational to really shine.
The good and bad from the lacrosse world organized in easy to read passages. Let’s start with my mid-summer recruiting trail update!
We talk about why the subject line and first in any email is important, what to include (and not include) in a well written email, and what should be attached to every email that is sent to a coach.
When I was 17 years old, if you told me I would be frequenting Mercer Country Community College in Princeton Junction, New Jersey I would call you silly names. And yet, here we are in 2014 and I’m recovering from another trip to MCC where Tri-State holds their annual summer event.
Outnumbered, clusters of shore teams prove they can compete with the hub of lacrosse.
American Revolution hosted their first session of Phenom Camp last week in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania just southwest of Pittsburgh.
Just because you want to play for a certain club this summer doesn’t mean they want you to play for them. What are some things our Club Directors are looking for when selecting their teams?
The summer recruiting circuit draws ever closer. Pittsburgh players are spending more time on the road than ever before. If you’re a college coach, you’ll want to see these players compete in person.
A previous Club Directors Panel focused on how clubs are preparing their families for the accelerated recruiting process. Ryan Danehy, co-director of Go Blue and current assistant at Michigan, shared valuable insights from both sides of the process and then provided a great template for emailing college coaches.
How do you manage a player, and perhaps his family as well, who comes off of a disappointing summer circuit?
Sending a college coach a highlight video is one of the best ways to make that coach better acquainted with you as a player, as well as to make him want to see you play in person.
Our fourth Club Directors Panel presented a bit of a challenge for our participants, because we asked about attitudes of those associated with off-season lacrosse. By no means are we being accusatory of our panel, but as the scene continues to evolve, we are simply wondering what they’re experiencing from their side of the table.
Week Three of the Club Directors Panel finds us discussing how many tournaments a club should participate in, and how these clubs select those events. Should you play in three tournaments or five? If you play in too few events are you risking not being seen by coaches? If you play in too many events, are you risking injury or being over exposed?
We’re off and running after a spirited Week One of the Club Directors Panel. This week we dive into something a little more specific, the accelerated recruiting process. Perhaps the most intriguing part of lacrosse today is the development of D1 coaches accepting verbal commitments from sophomores and freshmen.
