What is the selection process?

Your player will be evaluated on his athleticism, lacrosse IQ, and skill. He will be evaluated by two of our National Evaluators. Two National Evaluators are assigned to each grade, and the same Evaluators will evaluate the same grade at all five camps to ensure consistency across all five regions.
Evaluation will be based on performance at these three days of camp alone. No previous statistics, records, accolades, recommendations or other information will be taken into consideration during the selection process. The players who play the best across the three days are selected.

What is the process after camp?

The invites to Jake Reed’s Nike Blue Chip camp will be decided by March 1st. Invitations and non-invitation notifications will be sent through email via Constant Contact to the primary parent contact email listed on your account. If you would like to change this email address at anytime, you can sign in to your account > click edit> and change the email address. Since emails can get caught in spam or junk, please contact us if you have not heard from us by March 8th.

Will college coaches be at the camps?

 A variety of college coaches will be at the camps coaching, not recruiting. This is a try-out for a recruiting event.

Will an evaluation be provided after camp as to why my player did or did not receive an invite to Jake Reed’s Nike Blue Chip Camp?

No, individual evaluations will NOT be provided. Players will be evaluated by our National Evaluators much like they will be evaluated by a college recruiter. This format does not provide the time or content for specific feedback.

Is my son evaluated against players from just his camp or across all regional camps?

Players are evaluated against all regions. This ensures the best players from all 5 camps are selected.
