Central Scouting would like to welcome you to the 2017 Prep season for Boys and Girls lacrosse. The focus of Central Scouting is the following:
- A professional ranking system (RPI) that factors in winning percentage, opponents winning percentage and your opponents-opponents winning percentage. In short, who you play matters. Too often websites have winning percentage and a guessing system based on past reputation used to determine rankings. Not any more. This will model the NCAA.
- RPI Rankings will begin to show after the first set of games
- Please note, it takes a few games/weeks for the RPI to stabilize
- The algorithm for the RPI ranking models the NCAA
- A true PREP Champion. While the Preps may have factions or leagues where there is a champion, this site will show who a true champion will be in the Prep league. Every game matters. Strength of schedule matters. Soft wins may not help you and losses against top teams can help your strength of schedule.
- An accurate All-America team and Prep-Tewaaraton Award. While individual statistics will be an add on in the future, Central Scouting’s communication with coaches will be a key component in determining the elite players in the Prep League. Seeing that our communication will be sent out weekly (and will be viewed frequently) by over 900 Men’s and Women’s College Lacrosse Programs, we EXPECT to highlight the strength of what we feel is one of (if not the) strongest conglomerate of lacrosse programs and players in the world.
- Promotional and Informational news articles written by the Central Scouting team that will focus on programs, individual teams, coaches and individual players.
Central Scouting will be reaching many perspective student-athletes as well. Hence, the hope and expectation is that coaches and teams care about the growth and success of their lacrosse program. It is in the best interest of coaches to communicate to promote the success of the sport and the power of PREP lacrosse.
