NCSA Reviews for Lacrosse from Athletes and Parents

Class of 2020 – Parent – Lacrosse
“Jesse and crew have been very available to answer any questions and providing our family invaluable guidance. This is my third son to go through the recruiting process but the first to have used a service like NCSA and we are far ahead of the curve this time around and feel like we won’t make the same mistakes. The database has also been very helpful for organizing and managing the process. Additionally, we are learning about colleges and opportunities we never would have known about without NCSA.”

“Over the past year, my son has had coaches reaching out to him due to what they saw on NCSA.  Unfortunately, living in CA, we don’t get college coaches at the high school games.  The only thing they have to go by is the game film and NCSA provides a one stop shop where coaches can go to get the information they need about each player.  And, we feel very lucky to have guidance and direction from our coach Jesse.”

“Incredible software that lets athletes get in contact with coaches instantly and lets them know where certain schools are with recruiting, provides free coaching sessions whenever needed, gives athletes one place to have everything they need for recruiting, and people edit your film for you.”

Class of 2019 ­– Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“NCSA has been extremely helpful in finding schools that match what I am looking for. It has also been extremely beneficial in working in the recruiting process. In the short amount of time that I’ve been a part of the program, it has brought many opportunities towards me, and I’m looking forward to what will come of it.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“So far through my experience I have learned things I wouldn’t have learned without NCSA. I feel like I can relate to all of the people I have talked to so far. Knowing everyone I talk to has gone through similar experiences helps make this process seem possible.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“NCSA has helped me throughout the recruiting process from the start. The NCSA staff is friendly, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable in the recruiting process.  They are very quick to contact you about recruiting opportunities and coaches contacting you.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Lacrosse
“I believe your website and services allow athletes to more easily explore the colleges that are out there that they could compete at.  They are exposed to schools that they might not have even thought about.  Our son used your services to help get his highlights together and posted.  That certainly has helped get some more interest in him.  My daughter is also using your services and is getting recruited by several schools that we would have never gotten exposure to without NCSA.  Thank you.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“Because you have really helped me in terms of contacting coaches and how to draft an email or talk to coaches. I also enjoy being able to have my highlights and other information such as tournaments that I have attended all in one place.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Lacrosse
“Mainly, the knowledge base that coach Frank had to share with us and used to guide us through the recruiting process! It’s incredible how much information he has gathered about the different college teams, the conferences they play, the various years of team stats, backgrounds on specific coaches and colleges/universities, and the list goes on…thank you coach Frank!!!”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“Coach Churchward is making the adjustment from Coach Frank (who I was very close to) much easier than I was expecting. I really miss Coach Frank and I hope he’s doing well, and I hope to be able to contact him in the future, but I truly believe I will not miss a step with the way I spoke with my new coach tonight.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“My recruiting coach always stays in touch with me! I feel like I can talk to him like he is my older brother! Always makes sure I am staying on top of my emails and game film! He even recommended colleges to me based off of what I like and my performance in the classroom. (Class size). Honestly my favorite coach I’ve ever had!” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“This service is a great tool to easily get in touch with coaches along with gaining more information about colleges that you may be interested in. It also allows easy access for college coaches to get a hold of your information through the profile. The profile has all my upcoming events and all my film which I think is a great tool to have.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Lacrosse
“Great support from Coach Frankie Weschler – he’s been a great resource.  Contact from coaches started after freshman year and picked up significantly after the junior season.  Most importantly, this is exposure that we would not have gotten any other way.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Lacrosse
“NCSA is a very useful tool and helps to transfer all of your important information into one confined area so that coaches can see it all at once. In addition, the staff is very friendly and is willing to answer any question you have for them. Lastly, they will give you a firm answer to your question; some websites dance around the question because they are unable to provide the customer with what they need.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“The primary reason for the score that I have provided is because NCSA provides the topics that are necessary for the athlete to be noticed by college coaches, the recruiting coaches are open, nice and kind. Besides that, NCSA also provides videos and slides on what to do and how to manage contacting college coaches. NCSA teaches candidates when is the perfect time to respond, what to include in the response, etc. This program also has a matching system which shows you which colleges may fit you the best, which I find incredible. NCSA is there to help in every step of the process.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“The primary reason for the answer I just gave you is NCSA is great for helping you find the college that fits you. As well as, the people that are available to help such as Coach Frank are very helpful and understanding, yet they push to do certain things that are good for your future as an athlete.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Lacrosse
“We absolutely love our recruiting coach, Frank W!   Our coaching sessions are very helpful, and he has a lot of insight to different college programs since he was a former college athlete.  He was extremely helpful with suggestions on how to best approach the high school coach about an issue this past season.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“NCSA has completely opened up opportunities for me to play in college that I definitely would not have had without it. It makes it easy and simple to get into contact with coaches, teaches me what to do/say for any situation regarding a coach/recruiter, and makes choosing a college much easier.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Lacrosse
“The exposure to colleges has been amazing. I can’t believe all the college mail my son gets. Frank has helped us and answered all our questions. It’s not easy being that my son wants to do biomedical engineering, but Frank has helped and suggested schools. Being my son’s senior year, this is a very important time, and I know Frank will be there for us. Thank you so much!”

Class of 2019 ­– Parent – Lacrosse
“After talking with other parents who have children that are not athletes, I really see a lot of advantages that the NCSA service offers. We have discovered schools we never knew existed. As my son has gotten older, and his level of play has increased, we have noticed the caliber of colleges that are looking at him has increased.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Lacrosse
“Even though we are very early in the entire process, I’m very impressed with all of the tools, video help, and resources you provide.  That cuts down on so much work. Even seeing the number of the search appearances has made our entire family excited.  And the search appearances are schools we didn’t even know existed!” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“I would recommend NCSA, but I would make sure they understood it isn’t a magic bullet. That they would need to put in a lot of work and the earlier the better. Jesse has been great!” 

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“NCSA has more information than I would have known of on my own. It’s easy to click on a college and see all the info you need. Having a recruiting coach that calls and can answer questions is really helpful. He knows the process and the sport.”  

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“The primary reason is the moment you join, college coaches immediately reach out to you. You can also reach out to the college that you’ve always wanted to play for.  It is a great way to get ahead in the recruiting game as well.”

Class of 2020 – Parent – Lacrosse
“NCSA has been a great resource and repository for assembling information as part of the recruiting process. We’ve been exposed to colleges we would have never known about and learned a lot about the recruiting process itself. Our sport liaison for lacrosse has been great in communicating with us and providing us insight.  NCSA is not getting my son a scholarship or college opportunity…that’s up to my sons’ performance in the classroom and on the field. NCSA is a tool to assist in the process.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Lacrosse
“The database is a great way to research colleges and is a great place to post all information.  Jesse Churchward has been a great resource and is very supportive and responsive.”

Class of 2020 – Parent – Lacrosse
“Coach Jesse is a key factor – knowledgeable & experienced – and relates well to up and coming student-athletes on the path that he has taken and knows well. It’s an overwhelming process at first; however, Coach Jesse helps us to break it down and focus on key priorities that are relevant to our current position or situation. As well, the tools are at our fingertips – very user-friendly!” 

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“I have been invited to numerous prospect camps, including Ivy League schools, as a rising freshman from a little-known lax school and travel team.   I never would have received that exposure without NCSA.” 

Class of 2020 ­­– Student-Athlete – Lacrosse
“I’m really enjoying NCSA. The program is very nicely laid out and is very easy to understand, which is the primary reason is why I would recommend it to a friend who is dreaming to be a college athlete.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Lacrosse
“We haven’t been with NCSA very long and Coach Frank and everyone have been so good about keeping in touch with us.  My son is only in the 8th grade now so our process is just starting.  The tools and videos are very helpful.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Lacrosse
“In our limited time associated with NCSA, it has met our needs to put Matthew on the proper track toward setting goals for his future.  It has made him aware NOW and be ahead of the curve when it comes to potentially being a student-athlete in college.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Lacrosse
“It has offered connections and information about the recruiting process that we would have NEVER known about without NCSA.  It is so encouraging to hear from the coaches saying your profile has been viewed so many times this week, you have an unopened email, or this is something you should be doing.  Who knew there was so much to do?  It really does make student athletes be proactive in their future education. It is a great tool for helping them navigate the recruiting process. We are very grateful.”  

Class of 2019 – Parent – Lacrosse
“It makes the recruiting process so much easier, and there’s so much support.  The coaches at NCSA are so positive and helpful. There is always encouragement. The process takes time and when the player puts in the time, there is a reward.  I think the process encourages a good work ethic in players and lets them know that academics are equally as important as their sport.  I feel my daughter has a drive for success that she didn’t have prior to joining NCSA.  I am very grateful.” 

Class of 2019 ­– Parent – Lacrosse
“I think it is necessary for young athletes to be connected to the right schools. NCSA offers the connections in an easy to understand way.  NCSA encourages young athletes to take control of their path in life- which is such a valuable “life lesson”. It teaches kids that you get rewarded for putting in the effort. It teaches communication skills that will help our young athletes in whatever endeavors they choose. It is such a positive experience that I would highly recommend it to young athletes.”  

Class of 2020 – Parent – Lacrosse
“NSCA has been a one stop shop for my daughters recruiting goals. Instead of having to track down all of her college interests and info, it’s all in one place. Along with tons of useful campus info and contacts. Makes it so much easier!   Our guide Frank has been so very helpful and seems genuinely interested in helping my daughter reach her goal of becoming a college athlete. He makes it a point to let us know we can contact him anytime!”
