Is recruiting a hot topic in your lacrosse circles? It is in ours, and at its core, we love the subject ---- the process by which future collegiate student athletes 'match' with schools and programs that best fit their academic, athletic, and personal profiles, and the gateway to an incredibly special and once-in-a-lifetime experience as a college student athlete ---- but, the frame of reference can be skewed at times. The feelings of opportunity and excitement are sometimes replaced with pressure and uncertainty. We strongly believe that it's most important to focus on becoming the best student athlete possible, choosing opportunities to develop on and off the field. We believe priority #1 should be to become as recruitable as possible, so that when the time comes, you are in a position to maximize your opportunity. Focusing on your development (and this includes academic success first and foremost), along with due diligence, choosing strategic recruiting opportunities, and fostering your relationships within the sport, will help you take control of your own process, and put you in a position to succeed.
The Northstar Showcase curriculum is intentionally designed to concentrate elements of the game which we believe will develop the student athlete and foster talent, competition, confidence, fun, camaraderie, knowledge, respect, leadership, and as a result, play a valuable role in making each athlete more recruitable, and better equipped to achieve their goals for 'next level' lacrosse. The NSS curriculum makes for a jam-packed, high-intensity, productive day of lacrosse.
