In college lacrosse recruiting, there are two major possible student-athlete strategies.

The first is to maximize your son or daughter’s athletic potential. A version of this strategy could be to target the highest rated Division I school that your child’s skills support. The other strategy is to maximize your son or daughter’s academic potential. This strategy could target the highest ranked national university or liberal arts schools in the US News and World Report College Ranking Issue. There are at least 5 variants of each of these two major strategies.

Maximise Their Athletic Potential
A variant of maximizing their athletic potential could be to prioritize driving for an athletic scholarship. Another variant could be to drive for a large state university with many “big time” sports programs, great school spirit and an enthusiastic student body.

Maximize Their Academic Potential
A variant of maximizing their academic potential could be to specifically target the Ivy League. Another variant could be targeting “stretch schools” that your child’s GPA and standardized tests (i.e. SATs) would not qualify for.
