Lacrosse in College

College Recruiting
Lacrosse in College was started in 2001 as a website to help athletes get more involved in the college recruiting process and help them connect with college coaches. After going through the process with his four children, he learned how important it was for athletes and their parents to be active in the search. There are THOUSANDS of athletes around the world looking to continue playing lacrosse in college which makes it nearly impossible for a college coach to find you: UNLESS THEY KNOW YOU'RE INTERESTED!

This fact and the need for a system which makes the process easier on athletes and college coaches is the basis for Lacrosse in College. Now, athletes have a website where they can build a profile, search through our database of colleges, and contact the coaches for the programs they are interested in. We teach our "College Bound Athletes" what they need to do to be effective and also give them reminders along the way to make sure they stay active. This service is still the major focus behind all development of our site.

SincSports.com System
While working with tournaments to produce player guide books for college coaches attending the events, we were introduced to the need for an online tournament system to help directors run their events more smoothly. We began working with tournament directors to create a system to fill all of their needs. Because of our hard work and desire to provide our customers with everything they need, our tournament system has become the premier system available on the market today. We provide events with all of the features they need to run their events. To learn more about our tournament system, please visit our
SincSports.com website that highlights many of the features which make our system the best on the market!

USA Rank
Another important feature we have developed is our ranking system. Our rankings are completely objective and are soley based on the games in our system. We developed an algorithm that runs through all the games played within the past year and rates teams based on their results. The greatest strength of our ranking system and what makes us different than other systems out there is that we let the results speak for themselves. We do not calculate our rankings based on the players on your team, the organization you are a part of, or by how good an "expert" says you are.

Because of this model, each person using our system is very important to help make our rankings more accurate. We encourage our users to enter in as many games as they can to help improve the ranking in their state, region, and across the nation.

While searching for the best programs for them, he founded the Eclipse Soccer Club in Illinois, which has gone on to be one of the top clubs in the country; now holding numerous national titles.

Two of them went on to play and lead in Division III programs and two took leadership roles in Division I programs.
