First Step

 

Find schools that fit your athletic and academic profile.(I have included a list of all the schools by division at the end of this memorandum)  Research and find schools that are a good academic, lacrosse, geographic and financial fit. Now that you have found schools that are good athletic and academic match for you (Be sure you have looked into high school average and GPA for incoming freshman profile that is similar to your current scores and GPA) your next step is to do some research on the roster of the sport you are interested in. Go the school’s athletic website (usually prominently linked in to school’s homepage). Not only is it standard for each team to have its own site within the Athletic Department, many also give detailed roster information or team media guides including player biographies. Many player biographies include their high school accomplishments and this information can be helpful in determining if you are the type of athlete this program typically recruits or attracts. Based on that information, use the organizer to check off: possible match, possible mismatch, or inconclusive.

 

 

 

Start making Contacts

By this point you should have identified schools that are interesting to you and (according to your research) may be interested in you. You should start to establish contact with the head coaches or recruiting director at these schools using the documents and contact information provided for your use.

 

A couple of helpful hints:

 

  • Try to personalize the letter of introduction as much as possible. Refer to events in their program; a recent big win, other team members from this area, etc.
  • Don’t be afraid to e-mail your letter of introduction. People feel more compelled to respond to e-mails.
  • Be prepared to be frustrated. Don’t pin too much hope on any one program and be prepared to have to make repeated attempts. If you really want it, this shouldn’t bother you. 
  • Be sure to list the summer schedule of your games for a coach who says he is going to attend a tournament that you are playing at.
