TLI Recruiting and Training Combine
This unique program combines TLI’s intense training curriculum with a high tech recruiting platform unlike any on the market. With the most comprehensive recruiting product available, we educate players and their parents on all aspects of the recruiting process, while offering an unprecedented resource for college coaches: a multidimensional view of each players skill on the field. Our expansive curriculum offers an excellent pre-season training regime in itself, but because we prioritize the drills college coaches want to see in the recruiting process, we help players showcase the best of themselves, getting them ready for recruitment.
This program is the brainchild of TLI founder Todd Francis (Bio) and Guilford College Head Coach Tom Carmean (Bio). Both were Division 1 All Americans and both played professionally for over a decade. Coach Carmean has been recruiting players for over 20 years and Coach Francis has been helping players get recruited for over 15 years. The synergy of our combined backgrounds has allowed us to build a program that’s sure to become the Gold Standard for recruiting.
Titled “The Recruiting Experience,” this is a two-hour conference room session that is catered to players, parents and coaches. We will discuss the process of recruiting across entire the spectrum of collegiate levels. We will bring in Coach Andrew Towers (Bio) to share his experience of over 19 years in NCAA Division 1 Men’s Lacrosse. We dispel the myths and highlight the realities of the often overwhelming recruiting process. Our discussion-oriented format invites audience involvement, allowing for any and all questions to be addressed. Educating parents and players on all aspects of the recruiting process allows them to make informed decisions on college selection and to optimize the college experience.
We put all players through measurable lacrosse specific exercises in a true combine setting. Gathering information and metrics that will accurately depict the players athletic abilities. We have designed this to make sure we cover all aspects of speed, agility and quickness. We also measure shooting speed and other pertinent fundamentals such a form and accuracy. All of this information, along with the players video (see below), will be incorporated into the players TLI Player Profile.
Players will be run through three training sessions where they will progress through a curriculum that has been proven to build a players skill and IQ faster than any program available. The players will get an opportunity to run through every drill multiple times. We excel at running high-tempo multi-touch drills that give every player opportunity to perfect current skills, learn new skills and develop a true in depth understanding of the concepts associated with those skills.
All sessions will be filmed with Ultra High Definition cameras at the ideal vantage point to showcase player talent. Every rep and progression over all three training sessions will be professionally edited into a single video for each player. Together with the metrics from the combine and TLI’s exclusive training curriculum, the recruiting video rounds out an innovative player package that is precisely what every college coach wants: a true measure of a players ability in any and all situations.
