College Prep and Advising for High School Student Athletes


 

Do you constantly wonder about the next step you should take in your child’s lacrosse development? Do you feel overwhelmed, or un-informed by the recruiting process? Do you worry that college coaching staff will pass your child by with no opportunity for a roster spot, or scholarship?  

 

If the answer is YES to any or all of these questions, then I feel I can really help you through this critical process.  While I am NOT an agent , my program mentors student athletes and their parents toward making well-informed, sound decisions, that will enhance their overall lacrosse development, assist them throughout the college placement process and in the end, set the course to an exciting  and rewarding college athletic experience .



 

What I do: 

  • Assess students talent (live and or video) give unbiased feedback, and help identify college campuses and college programs that are a potential fit.

  • NCAA Compliance review of requirements.

  • Explain, in detail, how prospects and their parents should communicate with coaches throughout the recruiting process. Prepare the student athlete to speak from himself.

  • Game enhancement, help the prospect improve, both on and off the field(life skills).

  • Video review of player & elite college and pro teams

The Process:

  •   Initial Assessment & Consultation, either via, phone, zoom, or in person.  After introductory, topics include, game assessment (film or live), college lacrosse overview and a general Q&A.  Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.
