Making Elite Recruiting Events Truly Elite

0 - Published March 11, 2014 by in High School, Interviews

A decade ago, there were only a handful of truly elite recruiting camps and tournaments. If you wanted to be seen by top level coaches, and play against the best, this small number of events were where you wanted to be. Fast forward to today, and it seems like there are more recruiting events than there are recruits!

Club teams from Canada, the West Coast, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and several regions descended upon Annapolis during the second weekend of November for UP Lax.

StringKing interviewed CJ Costabille on their blog recently, and they touched on a number of different and interesting topics. They also asked CJ for his thoughts on recruiting, and choosing a college, and sent his doozy of an answer over to us, because they knew we’d want to share it!

0 - Published September 11, 2013 by in High School, Hot Pot

Someone recently posed this question to me: Are there national lacrosse brands? This question was asked in reference to club programs, specifically high school club teams, rather than to “brands” in the sense of gear manufacturers. So, are there “national lacrosse brands,” and if so, are they better than local club teams?

Lee Southren started the NJ Riot 2016 club team, and it is quickly morphing into something bigger. This growth has put Lee in a new position as the man running a club team.

This summer, I had the great privilege of being able to coach with the StickStar program based out of Texas. Being a part of this organization gave me a different perspective on the game and ultimately helped me to become a better lacrosse player and coach in the end.

Layne Smith is a 2015 attackman who also plays a whole lot of box lacrosse. He’s not the tallest kid in the field, but he’s thick (5’11″ and 195) and uses his strength and balance to his advantage very well. He also has a super stick, and finishes inside with a flurry of fakes.

This 2015 Player WILL Be Good In College

I’m always looking for high school level highlight tapes where I am convinced that the player in question has a solid future in the college game. The player doesn’t have to be a top 10 D1 lock to get noticed, but they do have to do something special, like show an uncanny ability to finish, a high IQ for their age, a great set of defensive checks, or a goalie who shines.

At LaxAllStars.com, we are always on the lookout for high school players that show a little something extra, or something different. Sometimes it’s a check throwing D guy, sometimes it’s a FoGo, or a goalie, and sometimes it’s a 2017 who plays way above his age level. Today we have a 2015 with GREAT lacrosse IQ.

JP Masaryk is a rising senior (2014) from Fairfield Prep in Fairfield, CT and surprisingly, this Face Off prospect hasn’t committed anywhere yet. Late bloomer in the house? Perhaps! Check out the video of JP below, and tell me this kid doesn’t have some potential!

Recruiting Is Dangerous: Kevin Warne Gets Run Over

0 - Published June 21, 2013 by in High School, NCAA

College coaches hit the recruiting trail hard over the Summer, especially in June and July. They line the side of fields in their fold out chairs across the country, and scout talent, and look for future players. When the action gets close, they get a great view, but also run the risk of getting trucked.
