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.
Invest in becoming a better player, rather than just playing more. Chazz Woodson shares his thoughts on how to best play “the summer game”. Figuring out camps, teams, tournaments and more can be tough. Chazz provides some much needed clarity.
We’ve gathered a group of industry leaders from different parts of the country and from different sized programs to discuss the current state of off-season club lacrosse, their roles as club directors, the state of recruiting, and what the future holds for amateur lacrosse. You’re going to find a group of men who are very passionate about their profession, which is helping young athletes and their families.
Today, at NOON ET, LaxAllStars will be hosting a LIVE Google Hangout on the subject of Recruiting, Elite Teams, and Travel Lacrosse! Our knowledgeable guests will include Trevor Tierney (of Tier Lacrosse), Xander Ritz (of Adrenaline Lacrosse), and Lee Southren (the founder of the NJ Riot).
This Summer, LAS will be following around the NJ Riot 2016 club team, and by following them, we will try to gain some insight into the elite travel team scene. We will interview some players, and talk to parents, but let’s start from the beginning with an interview with the NJ Riot founder, Lee Southren…
More established lacrosse hotbeds can have 10 or more club teams call an area home. How does one pick the right fit? Sometimes you just have to start your own team!
Lee Southren stops by to discuss his summer club lacrosse experiences and pose four important questions to consider when choosing a team. This is a hot button issue with a lot of moving pieces.
Barry Marenberg, a longtime reader and friend of LAS, stops by to talk about the issues surrounding elite travel team tryouts for youth, middle school, and even high school players. It’s a very interesting take on costs and benefits.
The opinion in this week’s Hot Pot is relevant to THIS VERY SUMMER! Get your lacrosse life in order, and your priorities straight! Solid links, some big news, and GREAT videos! TWO of them!
