NCSA named Official Recruiting Service of WPLL
As WPLL’s official recruiting service, NCSA will provide recruiting tools and resources to WPLL athletes and families online and through educational seminars at select WPLL tournaments and events. When registering for WPLL events, athletes will have the option to create a free NCSA profile, gain access to valuable college recruiting resources and access NCSA’s robust network of college coaches.
“NCSA’s goal has always been to set student-athletes up for success both on and off the field,” said NCSA President Lisa Strasman. “WPLL echoes that mission and works to develop the best young female athletes and leaders though the sport of lacrosse. We look forward to supporting those athletes through their recruiting process and help them find their best college fit.”
Additionally, WPLL will integrate NCSA recruiting software, Coach Packet, into all of its regional and national events. Coach Packet provides easy access to the latest rosters, player data, schedules and custom evaluation metrics by taking the historic bundles of paper handouts at recruiting events and complementing them with a dedicated universal iOS app.
By using Coach Packet on their mobile devices, college coaches and scouts who attend WPLL national and regional events will have an easier, more efficient way of recruiting and evaluating players.
“We are excited about our NCSA partnership for our WPLL Futures programming,” said Michele Dejuliis, founder and CEO of WPLL. “This is a great way for us to effectively evaluate these athletes while giving them recruiting support.”
The WPLL is the premier professional women's lacrosse league and development program for rising talent and strives to support the growth of female athletes both on and off the playing field.
Founded in 2000 to help educate student-athletes and their families on the college athletic recruiting process, NCSA today works with families, club, high school and college coaches to helps hundreds of thousands of student-athletes find their best college fit.
NCSA is the official responsible recruiting partner of US Lacrosse.
About the Women’s Professional Lacrosse League
