Lacrosse coaches of all varieties are very busy people. In addition to a full-time teaching job and all that entails, you also are in charge of guiding a sports team to victory. Lacrosse recruiting is a big part of your job, and with everything that you have going on, it is very easy to get overloaded and disorganized. There are some strategies that you can take advantage of to help you stay on top of lacrosse recruiting that will make your life easier.
One of the first big steps you can take that will make college lacrosse recruiting easier on the coach is to make it simple for prospective students to do as much of the legwork as possible for you. You need to make sure that on your college website all of the information about the lacrosse team and the contact information for the lacrosse recruiting coaching staff is accurate, and that all of the links are working properly. Make sure that students can easily reach your college lacrosse recruiting staff via email, because unlike taking time out for phone calls, digital correspondence can be handled when it best fits into your busy schedule. Also clearly state what you require from interested students, and to make it easier for everyone, ensure that it can all get to you in a digital manner. This means that you can store it all on your computer, rather than endless file cabinets and storage boxes, and it will make retrieval of particular documents much faster and easier.
As part of your lacrosse recruiting instructions, students will also send you DVDs of themselves in games. You will preferably want these sent online, but in case that is not possible, you will need a way to organize them and store them. An alphabetized-by-surname filing system could work, or sorting them via the team position played will make for easier retrieval for you.
Early on in the college lacrosse recruiting season, set up a large calendar with deadlines clearly marked. Once you have the big picture in place of what you need to get done, you can break it down into smaller chunks so you know what needs to happen on a daily basis in order to reach your college lacrosse recruiting goals on time.
Another aspect of lacrosse recruiting is attending the lacrosse recruiting camp or lacrosse recruiting tournaments in your region and nationally. As part of the information you ask of interested students, make sure to find out what lacrosse recruiting camp they will be attending. After watching their videos and checking their other application requirements, you will want to contact some of those students and put them on your list to see at the respective lacrosse recruiting camp.
Effective lacrosse recruiting takes a great deal of organization, but with a little forethought it can be made easier for everyone involved.

It was a clear, warm summer afternoon on Lake Chaubunagungamaug in Webster, Massachusetts. We were anchored in a quiet cove, playing a lively game of cribbage when I spotted a pair of eagles soaring high above us. It was as if they were playing a game of tag. Then suddenly one of the eagles headed straight down into the water and came back up with a big fish in its beak. He flew to a tall bushy pine tree nearby to enjoy his fresh catch.
Families today are all electronically connected. Facebook, Twitter and texting are the norm today. When I grew up such things were not available to us and many of us have “Happy Memories” of an earlier day. The younger generation today is losing its ability to create "Happy Memories" and I feel for them. Most of the younger generation have not had the chance to see the sun rise over a low hanging fog on a beautiful lake.
