True's Recruiting Formula

Take your Game to the next level

At True Lacrosse

We advocate for our players

Our personalized recruiting approach is built on advocacy for our players and their families.

Our job is to understand the goals of our student athletes and their families, then help them identify a school and program that will provide them with a well-rounded collegiate experience, and we put academics at the top of that list. By fostering a collaborative relationship with our players and their families, we aim to empower them to make informed decisions that align with their long-term aspirations and contribute to their overall success.

Alumni Spotlight

We’ve sent student-athletes everywhere from Harvard to Yale, West Point to Air Force, & Salisbury to Tufts (not to mention EVERY Division I program in the nation). This is True Recruiting. This is True Lacrosse.

Recruiting Quick-Tips

The Do’s

Every player’s journey through the recruiting roadmap will look different. However, following these guidelines will help ease the stress that many athletes feel during their college search.

The Don’ts

01

Don't Compare yourself to others.

Don’t attempt to compare yourself to others; college lacrosse is not one-size-fits-all. Your roadmap may be significantly different from those around you.

02

Don't Spam.

Don’t spam schools with weekly emails, texts, or phone calls.

It’s important to convey your interest in a school, but be sure to communicate efficiently with the coaching staff. 

03

Don't be irresponsible with social media.

Don’t post inappropriate material on social media. If you wouldn’t want your parents/grandparents seeing something, you probably don’t want college coaches to either. Be smart on social media.

04

Don't overschedule.

Dont’ burn yourself out by overscheduling tournaments, clinics, prospect days, college visits etc. The process can be overwhelming, so be sure to pace yourself. The True Recruiting staff is an excellent resource to help determine which events you should attend.
