INVESTMENT AND ROI

As with all sports and activities, there is a considerable amount of time, money and travel invested by every family. We truly understand the sacrifice and challenges parents and families make in order to participate with EDGE. We value each families commitment and loyalty to the program. 

What sets EDGE apart from other sports programs is the potential return of investment (ROI). On average, EDGE members will receive between $120,000 - $140, 000 USD scholarship money over their 4 years. 

Over the past 10 years, over 90% of our members have received scholarships offers in this range. EDGE members and families see a ROI within their first year of scholarship!

RECRUITING

Over the last 10 years, we have established and developed relationships with college coaches and schools at all levels. Owner/Founder, Stu Brown has helped more student-athletes in Canada secure scholarships than any one person alone. 

His reputation and relationship with college coaches provides our members with personal contact and relationships with schools that may otherwise not have been available to them. 

The recruiting process is different for every player. It can be an overwhelming process for families. Arranging school visits, contacting schools, negotiating offers and managing expectations are all items that many families don't have a great of experience with. We provide our members with personal 1 on 1 recruiting seminars and 24/7 recruiting support in order to make the recruiting process as easy and understandable as possible. 

We will guide and educate our members on how the recruiting process works, what members should be focusing on and a check list of items they should be completing through grades 8 - 12. We will provide 1st hand advice and experience in the recruiting process and help to make sure your son/daughter is making an educated choice in the school that is the best fit for him/her. 

We provide additional tools such as:
Video from all games in the fall
Recruiting templates 
LacrosseRecruits membership
Personal Highlight videos
Video hosting via EDGElacrosse YouTube Channel
Contact and networking opportunities with EDGE alumni

ACADEMICS

We take academics seriously, and so should you. Academics are a huge component to the recruiting process and we encourage all of our members to achieve the same level of success in the classroom as they strive for in sports. The better your grades, the more potential scholarship money!

We do require our members to meet our program's minimum academic standards in order to participate. This is to ensure our members qualify for NCAA recruitment. We want to take the doubt out of a coach's mind when evaluating EDGE players and know that ALL EDGE players are academically eligible to pass through the NCAA eligibility centre. 

ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY:

Minimum grade average to PLAY - 70% and above
Preferred grade average for EDGE HS members - 75% and above
Any prospective recruits and members who are BELOW 70% will be put on academic probation. They will need to work with EDGE to ensure they are on track in order to be considered to play. 

We also celebrate academic achievement in the classroom. All members who achieve honour roll in the 1st or 2nd term will be included on the EDGE All-Academic team. This provides you recognition online and with college coaches, which will provide you further exposure and benefit as it relates to recruiting and scholarships.

SAT Prep Classes (1999 - 2003)

We also provide all HS students with SAT prep classes. All prospective athletes are required to write the SAT in order to be eligible for the NCAA. We will provide you with SAT prep classes and tutoring in order to help you prepare for the SATs. 

ROSTER SIZE

EDGE will field one team per age/classification. Our teams are based on birth year and align with the year of NCAA eligibility. 

We will field one team of 20-21 players, to ensure quality playing time, and development opportunities on field and in practice. 

Teams will consist of:

11-12 short sticks (attacks/middies)
5-6 defense/lsm
2 goalies
1 fogo 

We will carry 2-3 AP players each season in order to ensure we have quality numbers at team practices. AP players will only participate in tournaments when necessary and up to the discretion of the coach. AP rate is approx 70% of the full member rate and remains eligible for all member benefits. 

You do not have to worry about having multiple teams and having your son or daughter moved up or down during the season. If you are offered a position on a team, that spot is guaranteed for each season (fall/spring)
