THE HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE
Gorilla Lax offers players currently in high school (2024 - 2021) with the following resources and opportunities to help them navigate four years of challenges both on the field and in the classroom.
Led by our academic advisors and counselors, our players will take part in a series of college seminars that will educate our players and their families about how to prepare, pay and apply to colleges. The selection and application process is arduous, so we are providing our Gorilla families with access to the resources that they will need.
FALL COLLEGE ROAD TRIP
During the fall months, we have taken a group of Gorilla players on a three-day road trip where we visit local colleges, take campus and athletic facility tours, meet with admissions officers, speak with coaches and compete in tournaments or games on campus. A recent Connecticut road trip featured stops at Wesleyan University and Yale University.
Legendary Hall of Fame Coach Ted Garber has been part of the Gorilla family since 2017 and assists our players with all the aspects of the school recruitment process. Coach Garber works with our high school aged players who are interested in playing in college. In addition to leading seminars about the college recruiting process, Coach Garber also frequently works directly with Gorilla players by breaking down game film in the fall and helping to guide our players on the best fit for their collegiate goals.
Save The Date - College Process Seminar: Tuesday, May 25th @ 7:00pm.
This seminar will be for all high school players. You will hear from our academic advisor on where you should be in the college search process by grade, Coach Garber will speak on where you should be in the recruiting process by grade, and we will introduce you to Hudl our new lax IQ training and highlight film tool. For those that do not know, Hudl is used in college and the pros to quickly break down game film, stats by team and player, player highlights, custom highlights to be shared and communicate with coaches easily.
