Congrats! You got your first letter from a college coach. Then a second, a third…you get the idea. It’s time to do your homework on which school is the best fit for you.
See what I did there? I said which school is the best fit for you. Not which coach, which style of play, not how many wins did they have last season—but which school will put you in the best situation to be successful on and off the lacrosse field in the short and long term.
You may love the fact that the starting long-stick midfielder just graduated and the position is open for the taking. But, if you can’t check at least some of the boxes below, you might find yourself wishing you did your homework.
Fear not! Our Men’s and Women’s Game Sub-Committees, as part of their new recruiting guides, put together this list of questions to help you decide.
There are tons of questions you’ll ask yourself as you go through the recruiting process. Don’t get me wrong, the on-field questions are hugely important. Just make sure you’re considering the full college experience before you sign that letter of intent.
