One of the most stressful periods of a teenager’s life is deciding on a college that is appropriate for them. As a parent, you should have an understanding of the lacrosse programs available at various colleges, as well as, knowledge of the recruiting process. Being informed will be helpful in assisting your student-athlete make a very important decision.
Academics and extra curricular activities are a vital part of the recruiting process. Student-athletes must not only keep up their grades but they are also encouraged to participate in multiple in and out of school club organizations. College coaches seek out well-rounded student athletes.
When looking at college programs a student athlete has a choice between participating in a D1, D2, or D3 program. Every student-athlete must determine which division they are best suited to play in according to their skill and commitment level.
After entering the Eighth Grade, all Sentry lacrosse players will be afforded the opportunity to have a "Player Profile" on the ConnectLAX website to use as a recruiting aid. The recruiting process really intensifies, once a student-athlete enters high school. Throughout the next four years, we recommend a structured course of action that will enable students to abide by NCAA regulations and maximize visibility to college coaches.
