Coach Recruiting Interview

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

Find the right fit for all the things you are looking for in your experience. play 2 sports, study abroad, get involved! the right school is out there waiting for you. Reach out to the coach if they haven't reached out to you.

What is the best way for players to get on your recruiting radar?
Email-send a letter-call. We are always looking for someone interested in our program

What type of players do you look for and where?

I look for the athlete that has a strong drive to play-wants to be in the action in some way. Sometimes we get those kids who did not plan on playing in college or never played club. I just want hard working kids who strive to make themselves better. We travel all over-we are in the middle of the country! We have to!

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

Field sense-it is not one that comes easy. this comes from playing other sports and with a variety of players. the basics are key-you don't always have to play an organized game to get better-just put your hand on your stick.

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

it hasn't-if a student wants to commit to another school-then maybe we weren't the right place. I want the student that wants to be here because they looked at everything!

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

enjoy the process-don't feel as though it needs to be over if you are not ready for that. Choose based on the best for your family and it will be the place you are all the happiest with in the end.
