The Recruiting Process

Lax Plus is highly involved with the recruiting process. As you move through your high school years, the Lax Plus staff will continue to educate and guide you through the recruiting process. There will be informational sessions held throughout the year discussing the Division I, II, and III recruiting process.

Each player is assigned one of the recruiting coordinators below. The coordinators then act as a liaison between our athletes and the college coaches at the schools they are interested in. This includes help with sending out emails to coaches, filling out questionnaires, and overall assistance as each athlete finds the best place for them at the college level. Each recruiting coordinator will assist their players with their recruiting folder, which is monitored by both the player and assigned coordinator. Players will receive feedback as to what level they would fit best academically and athletically for college lacrosse, as well as be provided any information from college coaches.

Our recruiting coordinators together are able to utilize their expertise and connections with the college world to ensure that all players find a college/university that meets there academic and athletic needs.
