I found out about First Point USA through one of their former clients, Dulcie Davies, who is now at Stanford University on a hockey scholarship. Iíd been thinking about going to college in the US to play lacrosse and get a degree for a while and realized very early on that it was a really complicated and time consuming process. First Point USA obviously have a lot of experience navigating the process and that was a major factor in my decision to join the program. A lot of their staff also went to US colleges and have first-hand knowledge of what the experience is like.You are quite new to the program and waiting for offers for starting next year in 2014. Where are you hoping to go? At the moment I donít really have a specific area or place in mind. The east coast is the main area for lacrosse in America but itís spreading very quickly so Iím keeping a pretty open mind at the moment. One place I really like the sound of though is Boston University; itís highly ranked academically (although I havenít decided yet what Iíd like to study) and its varsity lacrosse program starts up next year so it would provide a really exciting challenge to join that program in its second year. What are your future goals but also what do you want to gain most from going out to America on a Scholarship? Obviously Iíd like to get a degree as that is the point of university and Iíd also like to improve my skills as a lacrosse player and contribute to the university lacrosse program as much as I can. In the long term, Iíd like to represent the Senior England Lacrosse Team at a World Championship and a European Championship. How are you finding being on the program? What would your advice be to others? Iím really enjoying being on the program, itís a really interesting process and I would definitely recommend it to others. My advice to others would be to ask as many questions as you can, itís the First Point USA staffís job to help you so use them!
