Colleges with lacrosse teams will often hold lacrosse recruiting tournaments, inviting high school lacrosse players in to play games leading to playoffs so that lacrosse college recruiting coaches from the region can watch them play. If you are a high school lacrosse player, you will want to talk to your family and enlist their help, as well as the help of your high school coaches, so that you can be seen and get positive notice when you attend lacrosse recruiting tournaments this season.
Tournaments can last for one day or several. To find out more about lacrosse recruiting tournaments, visit the website of colleges you are considering attending, going specifically to the lacrosse department on the site. There you will find events listed, and you can see if and when lacrosse recruiting tournaments will take place.
Lacrosse recruiting camps sometimes also hold tournaments. A camp is somewhat different from a tournament in that you have the option of attending a development camp, where you get some intensive skill development and training, or lacrosse recruiting camps, where coaches and scouts are in attendance to watch as you take classes and play games. Check on the college websites to see exactly what is being offered. If you are a freshman or sophomore in high school, you may want to focus on lacrosse camps that offer skill building sessions, and when you are an upperclassman then turn your attention to lacrosse recruiting camps and lacrosse recruiting tournaments.
Both tournaments and lacrosse recruiting camps are also a great deal of fun. At lacrosse recruiting camps you will meet players from all over your region, have a chance to play with and against them, and learn new skills. There are also fun activities for when you are off the field in the evening, such as talks by college admissions and recruiting staff and movies.
You will want to prepare for lacrosse college recruiting by planning ahead. Coaches and scouts will want to see your lacrosse college recruiting video. This is footage of you playing a full game, and can include game highlights. If you send this in to colleges where you would like to attend and where camps and tournaments are being held, this gives the coaches and scouts a chance to see you play and get to know what you would bring to their college teams. Send the video before you attend a camp or tournament, and when you sign up, be sure to let the coaching staff know you will be in attendance, so they will be looking for you.
College lacrosse recruiting events can offer very exciting and fun times for you and your family as you prepare, and then play your best, as a way to win scholarships to top colleges.

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.
Summer time is here, let's enjoy all the activities that goes along with that and avoid pesky insects through prevention/treatment. The four ‘B’s of Summer; BBQ, Baseball, Beaches and Bugs!
