WHEN AND HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SEND MY RESUME TO COLLEGES?
Colleges start looking at athletic talent very early on. It is not unheard of for them to keep track of grade school and middle school student- athletes that are already showing promise. Although colleges are bound by regulations that keep them from contacting student-athletes too soon in their careers, YOU, however, can make contact with any college at any time you choose. DON’T WAIT UNTIL YOUR SENIOR YEAR! We recommend that you start sending your resume out to as many colleges as you want as early as your freshman year. In some cases, you can even send it earlier in order to get information from the colleges about sports camps that they sponsor. This way, you start communication very early and they will know who you are throughout your high school years. Any coach following your resume on VMS will receive automatic updates every time you update your News Feed. This is a great way to keep those interested up-to-date at all times. The more frequently you communicate with them, the better the chance they remember who you are! Of course, you can send special personal messages at any time to any college coach or recruiter, right from your resume page!
