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 you
3. You will need to create a player profile. This document is here to help you.
