Granny_Weatherwax Posted October 15, 2018 Share Posted October 15, 2018 (edited) I wanted to share a bit about my experiences with college recruiting and potential student athletes. For those of you who have young people who play sports, especially those whose young people are thinking about applying to a D3 college - have your young person contact the coach at the school and see if they can play. Many D3 schools are struggling to fill rosters for sports like tennis, golf, track, and softball. Those coaches would enjoy speaking to your young person about the possibility of playing collegiate athletics. Your potential student-athlete doesn't need to be a state qualifier or have a Blue Chip. Having a good understanding of the sport and having better than beginner skills just might be enough to make the team. It may not be the top team in your college's conference but your potential student athlete will have a fun experience, gain skills, and make memories to last a life time. Don't wait for your young person to be recruited. Have them look at the college's athletic page and hit the Recruit Me tab. Look up the coach's information and send a text or an email. Take a video (a quick two to three minute vid from your phone is fine) and send it to the coach. Who knows what will happen. It just might be the start of something wonderful!!
