Lacrosse Survey: Why 5,000 recruits in 2015 chose their travel team and how it’s helped with recruiting


We surveyed 5,000 recruits to learn what they’re looking for in a travel team and where they received the most or least help in terms of getting recruited. The survey was anonymous. It included 10 questions with the final two as open text responses (questions listed below). ~85% of respondents were graduating years 2016-2018.

Our suggestions / annotations based on feedback are in brackets.

Player development and the quality of coaching staff were most important for recruits. This is followed by tournaments attended. Roster size and cost / dues were only considered somewhat important. [Detailed coach bios on the team website.]
