By design, the better than 10:1 player to Coach ratio allowed for intimate skill instruction.

Author's Note: I came across these articles by chance one day and within the first story was a lengthy write up about the Louisville women's lacrosse program and how there were some covering up of incidents in the past, most egregious being the mistreatment of a player who had failed a fitness test and the aftermath of it.

First article will be about the new rules themselves. as put out by the NCAA.

Author's Note: If you are looking at getting recruited you need to know who Ty Xanders is and be familiar with his website Recruiting Rundown. I've gotten to know Ty over the years and he pretty much covers the entire country to give you the best information about recruiting available (you'll note that we carry Ty's Twitter feed on this page so you can get the latest from him). Ty first published this article in 2015 and recently re-ran it. I think it is a terrific piece of advice for every family out there who is looking at playing at the college level.

Over the past few years, highlight reels have become an essential part of getting recruited. They won’t make or break the recruiting process (re
