Students across the country are facing financing shortages when it comes to funding college educations. Sports enthusiasts have a way into college: through a sports scholarship. College lacrosse recruiting is designed to give you a chance to play your favorite sport for the college of your choice, and earn your degree while doing so. There are several steps you can take to ensure that you glean full advantage of lacrosse recruiting events and activities.
Fairly early in your high school lacrosse experience you will want to narrow down your list of colleges where you might want to attend and play. This becomes important at the high school level, because it gives you an opportunity to attend lacrosse recruiting camps at your favorite college campuses. This gives you several advantages. At lacrosse recruiting camps you can meet with the college coaching staff, and in this way you will get to know them a bit better than you might through correspondence alone. College lacrosse recruiting events also give the coaches a chance to meet and talk with you, and that helps them to remember you out of the many students that they see during the lacrosse recruiting process throughout the year.
Attending lacrosse recruiting camps at your choice of college also affords you the opportunity to use your time off the playing field wisely. You can explore the campus, and see for yourself all of the academic departments where you might attend classes. Sometimes if you put in a request in advance of your college lacrosse recruiting visit, you may be allowed to sit in on a few classes to get a sense of what classes are like at this particular institution.
Lacrosse recruiting camps also allow you to eat both on and off campus, and to stay in on-campus housing. Both of these factor in heavily toward making you feel comfortable and secure in the new environment of college, and so it is important that you find out in advance what the room and board situation is like at the college when you visit during a lacrosse recruiting session.
In order to make the most of lacrosse recruiting camps, you will want to do a little homework in advance of your visit. Before you attend the camp, you will want to put together a lacrosse recruiting video of yourself playing both a full game and some game highlights. In all correspondence that you include with the video you will want to include your name, the position you play and jersey number, so that lacrosse recruiting scouts can easily identify you on the video.
By keeping these ideas in mind, you will have greater success at making a favorable impression on lacrosse recruiting coaching staff, and make your college dream a reality.

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.
