Scores of Black Bear alumni can be found playing in Division I, Division II, and Division III college programs throughout the country. Black Bear Offers its players guidance in the recruiting process through:
-FOUR YEAR RECRUITING ROAD MAP: This 4-year recruiting packet was developed by our Recruiting Coordinators and college coaches with a focus on helping today’s student-athletes navigate the recruiting process! Academics-Competition-Camps/Showcases-Recruiting advice based on grade-College Visits. No other club offers this well laid out program!
-Recruiting Seminars: Discussions with and advice from our Recruiting Coordinators to players and parents on emailing/calling college coaches, creating recruiting bios, developing highlight films, individual assessments of each players skill/abilities to help promote them to colleges that fit THEIR needs.
-Recruiting Nights: College Coaches Panel made up of Division 1 and 3 coaches that will speak to our players and parents about the recruiting process, importance of academics, differences between Divisions 1-2-3, hear what COLLEGE COACHES look for in student-athletes!
To enhance the exposure our members receive, we have partnered with LACROSSE RECRUITS- click here for press release. All high school players will have access to their recruiting software database and systems which allow families to look up schools based on their academic/cost/geographic location/size etc., have access to every NCAA Division 1-2-3 coach through their messaging system, as well as have the ability to create their very own “Player Profile” which includes their academic-athletic-extra curricular information. Lacrosse Recruits also allows our Directors to oversee our players progress and keep track of the list of schools our players are interested in. It also allows our staff to direct college coaches to our players profiles and team pages prior to fall/summer recruiting events to allow our players to get noticed before they even step on the field.
