Coach Recruiting Interview

What advice do you have for players interested in Division III schools?

It's very important that you visit the school and speak to students and staff. You must choose a school that you will be happy with, even if you are no longer able to compete in your sport.

What is the best way for players to get on your recruiting radar?
Filling out the "Recruit Me" forms that are on all college web sites are the easiest way to get on the radar, but, include and personal message to the coach, and/or video and tournament info.

What type of players do you look for and where?

I try to look at motivated student/athletes who have a potential for growth within our program. Not always the best player on the field, but someone who really loves the game. I try to recruit regionally within New England and New York, but I look very closely at Florida, California, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

What areas of player development would you recommend players focus on to elevate their game?

The most important skill needed at any level is Stick skills, which include, Both Hands, passing(different levels), catching, and moving with the ball in a efficient manner.

How has the accelerated recruiting landscape impacted your approach to recruiting?

I have found that younger players are looking to committ at an earlier date, which, I feel, is not always in the best interest for every athlete.

Are there any last pieces of advice for players and families you'd like to share?

Athletes and their famlies need to do there homework on college choices. Look at the long-term impact a choice will bring. School environment, potential for growth, strength of the program, and realistic opportunities to play at the collegiate level.
