Coach Recruiting Interview

Shannon Hertz has been the head coach of women’s lacrosse since October of 2014. She came to Bloomsburg after three seasons as an assistant coach at Catholic University of America and two seasons at Lock Haven University. During her time at CUA she helped lead the Cardinals to 36 victories, 2 Landmark Conference championships, 2 NCAA Tournament appearances and a spot in the 2012 NCAA Regional Final. Further on, during her time at Lock Haven, she was named the 2009 IWLCA Divison II Assistant Coach of the Year! Hertz lead the Bald Eagles to a runner-up finish in the 2009 NCAA Tournament and a semifinal appearance in 2010 when they won back-to-back conference titles.

Shannon Hertz attended Boyertown High School (Pa.) where she was the captain on the field hockey, basketball and lacrosse teams. She then graduated from Lock Haven in 2008 with a bachelors degree in recreation management.

What do you look for in a recruit? What type of player best fits your program?

I look for someone who is hard working, coachable, and wants to put the team first. The type of player that best fits my program is someone who loves Bloomsburg and Lacrosse! I think that you really need to love the school you attend to be happy there. I look for positive players on and off the field. We spend a lot of time together, so you need to be able to get along the majority of the time.

What is the best way for players to get on your recruiting radar?

The best way to get on my recruiting radar is to send me an email themselves. (Not their parents) I like to get to know the players during the recruiting process since the players are the ones who I am bringing on to my team.

What areas of player development should recruits be focused on?

I believe players need to focus on their fitness and being extremely comfortable with their sticks. Being able to use both, their dominant and non-dominant hand will make them more versatile on the field.

What common recruiting mistakes should players and parents avoid?

I think it is a turn off to coaches is when they hear from a parent vs. their daughter. I would encourage the players to make contact with the coach.

What should a recruit include in a message to you that will draw your attention?

I think that a recruit should just be as honest as possible throughout the process. If you are interested in a school make sure to let that coach know you are interested and why! I want to know players want my school, just as they want coaches to want them.
