There is a lot in the news about Junior High athletes "getting scholarships." He is some clarification on what that really means.

There is a big difference between being "good enough to play in college" and "good enough to play where ever you want." 

When you are beginning the recruiting process, you start by determining the schools that are going to have an opportunity for you. If a dream school of yours isn't recruiting for your position in your year, there is nothing you can do to change that. You will need to look elsewhere.

A lot of people who contact us are expecting their recruiting process to be like that of the 5-star recruits they see in the news. 

"The difference between a 5-star and no-star recruit is a lot more than 5 stars."

Find out how recruiting budgets, staff sizes and academic requirements change the recruiting process for an unknown recruit.

I have written hundreds of email subject lines to coaches about recruits. The number one piece of advice I give athletes when emailing coaches is...

"You don't need every coach to open your email, only the right ones"

If you aren't the right fit for the program but your email (and the subject line) make it sound like it might be, then you are only going to be wasting time until the coach or you figures that out.

You want your email subject line to represent you and reflect something unique to the coach or school. From there, a coach will read your email, review your resume and watch your video.

Are you having trouble getting a coaches response over email? I can help. +Athnet  #Athnet   #scholarship

It is not your high school or club team coaches job to get you recruited. They are going to be very important in the recruiting process, but ultimately, the responsibility to contact coaches is up to you.

Here I cover some of the most common problems I see between athletes and their coaches
* My coach said they would get me recruited
* What can my coach do for me in the recruiting process
* I know someone who's coach got them recruited
* My coach wants me to focus on the season then I can worry about recruiting

Are you having problems getting recruited? Do you think your coach should be helping you more? Ask me and let me see if I can help.

If you aren't giving coaches what they need to evaluate you, don't expect anything from coaches. In the online world of recruiting, coaches expect athletes to have a video so they can make preliminary evaluations.

Getting recruited isn't easy and every year tens of thousands of recruits say  they want to get recruited, but few actually do. With over ten years of helping athletes use online recruiting tools to find scholarships, we know a thing or two about what it takes to have success.

* Out work the other recruits
* Ask about, not for a scholarship
* Have multiple scholarship offers
* Don't let location hold you back

Are you having trouble getting recruited? Do you feel like you are doing everything right but still no luck?

Evaluating recruits is not a black art; coaches are looking at your ability, potential and ability to adjust to college. 

* How good are you now?
* How good will you be?
* Will you handle being on your own in college?

Read more over on +Athnet to understand how coaches are going to evaluate you.

When college coaches send a letter, email or call you it can feel like your recruiting is taking off. But what happens a lot is coaches don't respond to your reply and it can feel like they aren't interested anymore. This is rarely the case and there can be any number of reasons why that is happening.

In my latest article on +Athnet  I respond to a comment/question I received and share the answer here.

Understanding why a coach is or isn't contacting can help you rest easy and focus on what you should be doing.

If you have questions of your own, please ask away! #Athnet   #recruitingtips
