Montclair Lacrosse Recruiting Information

Recruiting Process:

If you are serious about playing lacrosse in college, the time to start the recruiting process is now. The growth of lacrosse continues to make the recruiting process more competitive. Now more than ever you have to be proactive in the process by getting yourself out in front of coaches by competing in College Showcase Camps, Elite summer team tournaments, and college play days.

Sophomores/Juniors:

  • Sign up For Recruiting Camps- (Peak 200, New England Top 150, Blue Chip 225, Top 205 etc. ) Request Coaches Recommendations. 

  • Play for summer travel team and attend tournaments with your team.

  • Email your top 20-30 Schools (Another Option- Writing hand written letters to Coaches)

  • In your emails/letters give them your profile: Any personal data that is relevant, academics, grades, GPA and classes you are taking, athletic information, such as sports you play, and awards earned, any extracurricular activities that you are a member of, your contact information, keep them up to date with where you are playing in the fall and summer, let them know what tournaments and leagues you are playing in so they can come and take a look, also send them your HS schedule.

  • Begin to narrow this list down to your top 10.

  • College Coaches will start to email you and send you brochures and camp invitations in the mail.   Make sure that you respond to all coaches and be honest in your response.

  • Begin to schedule visits so that you can get a better feel for your top schools.

  • Go watch a game of a college team you are interested in. This is a great way to see if this is a team you could see yourself playing on.  Do you fit into their style of play?

  • Send out game film if you have it. College coaches want to see your best performance against one of your better opponents. They do not want to see you play the last place team in the state and have 7 goals, but rather they want to see you play one of the best teams in the state and have 2 goals and 2 assists.

  • Post a highlight reel of yourself on YouTube and email the link to coaches. It should be a well-rounded highlight of you, showing many aspects of the game, not just your goal scoring ability.

    Freshman

  • It's never too early to begin thinking about the college process.

  • Begin thinking of schools that you may be interested in. Your list should be extremely broad at this point, but now is the time to think about what you want in a school as well as a lacrosse team.
