Lacrosse is a great tool in gaining admission to a top school. In fact, a recruited athlete is 30% more likely to be admitted than a non-athlete, according to a study of admissions data at elite institutions published in the New York Times.
Lacrosse recruiting comes down to supply and demand. There have been 1,400 new high school lacrosse teams added since 2006 compared to only a handful of new Division I Men’s and Women’s teams. With increased competition for a limited number of roster spots, recruits need to use their grades, test scores, extracurricular activities and knowledge of the recruiting process to open their recruitment to as many schools as possible.
It is important to identify schools that fit you on and off the field and then proactively reach out to college coaches at these schools. College is a 40-year, not a 4-year decision, so find colleges that match your academic, athletic, social and financial preferences at ConnectLAX.com/colleges.
Skill x Exposure + Knowledge = College Roster. Knowledge of the recruiting process is an important key in helping recruits secure a roster spot and admission to their dream school. Learn more at ConnectLAX.com.
