US Lacrosse has issued an important and highly relevant statement on the complex nature of the collegiate recruiting process for high school student-athletes. Click on the link above to read the complete text of the statement.
US Lacrosse shares the concern of many lacrosse players, parents and coaches that the college recruiting process is not structured or timed in the best interests of high school student-athletes. A growing number of private clubs and recruiting events — which operate throughout the calendar year and whose motivation remains in question — has created a confusing landscape for young players, who are being encouraged to specialize in lacrosse and sacrifice the opportunity for a well-rounded high school experience.
