Coach Recruiting Interview

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

We look for student athletes that excel on the field and in the classroom. We look for athleticism, skill and lacrosse IQ. But beyond that we really focus on character and work ethic. We want guys that have a chip on their shoulder and aren’t afraid to wake up early and go to work. Lastly a huge characteristic for us is toughness. We want guys that excel with and enjoy the physicality of the game of lacrosse!

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

Best way is to fill out a questionnaire on our website that gets loaded into our database, send us an email expressing genuine interest with pertinent information, and attend our prospect day in October.

What areas of player development should recruits be focused on?

Recruits should be focused on fundamental skill development, improving lacrosse IQ by watching and studying film, playing other sports and getting exposed to different styles coaching, and lastly being a great lacrosse player without the ball in your stick – be a great off-ball player – no matter what position.

What common recruiting mistakes should players and parents avoid?

I think a big mistake that parents make is being over involved in the process. We as coaches at Hartford want to hear directly from the student athletes. We want recruits to take ownership of the recruiting process.

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

Best way is to fill out a questionnaire on our website that gets loaded into our database, send us an email expressing genuine interest with pertinent information, and attend our prospect day in October. We look for basic information in an email from a recruit. They should include, lacrosse and academic background, contact information and coach contact information, where we can see them play and highlight film if possible.
