Attack Volleyball Club is committed to helping athletes through every step of the recruiting process. We invite Attack families to ask any and all questions to ensure a full understanding of all options.
Understanding the recruiting process can be a very difficult experience. Below are some links that will help you understand the NCAA & NAIA Recruiting Guidelines.
For recruiting one on one sessions please email the Club Director to set up a free meeting for current Attack players with our recruiting coordinator Kevin McMillan.
As you begin the recruiting process, here is a good sequence of steps to complete
1. Identify Potential College
- Are you interested in a Large, Medium, or Small sized school
- What part of the country are you interested in going to school
- Does the school have the area of study that you are interested in pursuing
2. Contacting College Coaches is a very important part of the recruiting process
- If you are reaching out to Division 1 or Division 2 schools - be prepared to reach out to both the Head Coach and Assistant Coach
- Smaller schools often rely on their head coach to handle the recruiting responsibilities
- Be sure to stay organized during the recruiting process - it may be helpful to utilize a spreadsheet to help
3. You will need to create a player profile.
4. Email your potential list of schools
-Include a brief description of yourself and attach your player profile. Include approved video links - links should be evaluated by Club Director before sending
5. Create a highlight and Skills Video
-Be sure to put your best foot forward. Catch the attention of the coach right away - the first 10 seconds are very important. Include a variety of footage to include your skill set, along with game footage to allow for a thorough evaluation by the coaching staff. Attached is an article to help you make a great skills video.
6. Stay diligent and communicate
-Maintain consistent communication with coaches. Keep them updated on upcoming tournaments and previous tournament results.
7. You must register with the NCAA Clearinghouse when looking at NCAA schools.
