Recruiting is an important aspect for any lacrosse player looking to compete at the next level. Connecticut Valley offers extensive recruiting services to ensure our players are happy and comfortable with the entire process leading up to their ultimate decision of where to attend college. In our five years as an organization Connecticut Valley has seen roughly 100 players move on to the next level each with a different academic desire, but the same common goal; to play college lacrosse.
As a member of our program you are slowly guided through the entire process; for those without a family member who has played college sports the initial shock of how demanding it may be is strenuous. Should you suit up for one of our programs and eligible to be recruited to play lacrosse in college (Yes, the NCAA has strict guidelines) we require certain "homework" to be done by the player and handed in to their respective Summer/Fall Coaches. This allows each coach to more closely evaluate each players personal, unique (Academic & Athletic) goals.
In addition to learning more about the player and their lacrosse/academic aspirations, Coaches will provide their own evaluation of programs they feel that particular player may be a great fit for. There are roughly 500 (and growing) collegiate lacrosse programs across several different divisions in the United States and Canada, the key to finding the right one is by research, getting to know the coach, evaluating yourself as a student athlete, and ultimately paying a visit to the school then spending time with the team. Our coaches are in constant contact with college coaches from across the country and we provide clear, honest feedback on each player as requested.
Should you be interested in the recruiting process prior to participating for one of our teams or wish to obtain further knowledge on the subject please do not hesitate to contact us at: ConnecticutValley@gmail.com
