Let me start by saying thank you to all of you who have reached out and shown support to me and the NNU community for the launch of the Men's Lacrosse program here at NNU. It's been over a year now since the launch of the NNU Men's Lacrosse Program.
we started this endeavor and I'm pleased to say that we have twenty-four recruits signed and ready to take the field. The launch of the NNU Men's program didn't come without its challenges but the commitment of both myself and the university has been unwavering; we are committed to the success of this program!
Our recruits will represent five total states (Idaho, Utah, Oregon, Washington and Montana). Recruiting is the lifeline to any successful program and as such I am wholeheartedly committed to recruiting locally, as many of you know I spent fourteen years involved at the high school level; twelve years coaching and two years serving as IHSLL VP. I would like nothing more than to build the majority of our NNU roster with local talent but I need your help to make this happen, I believe we can offer a very competitive opportunity locally, all our our recruits will be offered lacrosse scholarships, scholarships amounts are offered within a range and as the Head Coach I have the ability to shift dollars where I see fit to help bring in the top local talent. We are also offering all of our recruits nearly $2,000 in free gear, our recruits get brand new Cascade S helmets, Maverik Rome gloves, Gear bags, Team Jackets, Team practice jerseys, Team Shorts, and a ton of apparel. Attached you'll find a picture of some of our team gear so that you can share this with your players.
In the coming months I will be rolling out a community outreach program that is targeted to all of the local high school coaches, the outreach program is an effort to not just say we want to recruit locally but to actually show it. I have several initiatives that I am working on that I hope will strengthen the relationships within the community and through these efforts I hope that all of you will see that my actions to recruit locals are sincere and that you can get behind these efforts to endorse NNU to your players.
Today my initiative is to drive more awareness to the NNU Men's Lacrosse program by growing our following on our twitter page. Today is the first step in what I hope to be a successful partnership with each local program, if each of you will share this email with your entire program and let your players know that we are holding a drawing on Friday, August 14th. The winner of the drawing wil win a brand new pair of Maverik Rome gloves (see attached). To get entered into the drawing all your players need to do is follow us on Twitter (@nnumenslax) AND send an email to on our Twitter account letting me know the following:
The cut off date to be entered into this drawing is on Thursday, August 13th.
This will be the first of several drawings that we do over the next few months to bring awareness to the NNU Men's Lacrosse team. I have several other drawings in the work that will also be directed for coaches and programs, my goal is to be engaging with our local coaches and programs and I hope you all will engage back to bring the level of awareness to our NNU Lacrosse program!
Thank you all for your time and I look forward to announcing the winner on our twitter page on Friday, August 14th!
