Much has been written about the state of college recruiting on laxallstars and other sites, about how the system is broken. I’m not going to disagree with that. I don’t believe 9th graders should be making verbal commitments or that college coaches should be offering spots to players who have barely made a varsity impact. Instead of writing about how broken the system is I’m going to focus on player development. My biggest question regarding this process is “What are you showcasing?”
One thing that is holding back the growth of lacrosse is the lack of qualified coaches. It’s tough to make a living doing something that you love but there’s nothing more rewarding. By growing your business we are growing the game.
