NCAA Recruiting

When players come to Lakeshore hoping to prepare to play at the collegiate level, we do more than just develop their skills—we ensure that they have the best opportunities to be recognized by recruiters and coaches. As part of a Lakeshore National Travel Team, your general fee includes:

  • The opportunity to play for a top program in Illinois already on college coaches’ radar
  • Access to Lakeshore’s network and relationships
  • Participation in nationally recruited tournaments in age specific brackets
  • An exceptional and dedicated coaching staff who will advocate for you. It is our job to get the coaches to the fields. If a coach asks Lakeshore about a specific player, Lakeshore will facilitate that communication.
  • General exposure to coaches before a tournament
  • An honest evaluation of player’s skill and potential
  • Purchased videos from IWLCA tournaments
  • Distribution of team fact sheet at specific tournaments


Families have the option to purchase a separate Recruiting Package for additional recruiting support. This is the opportunity to work with one of Lakeshore’s Recruiting Specialists and access to a network of established relationships with DI, DII and DIII coaches for future steps in the recruiting process.

  • Road Map for Outreach discussed in initial in person meeting with Recruiting Specialist
  • Player Assessment to NCAA coaches
  • Recruiting Specialist serves as a guide/consultant. This is a player driven process.

Lakeshore will host Recruiting Realities Seminars during the year. We encourage players to attend at least one of these to learn more about the process.
