    When do colleges start recruiting

    When Do Colleges Start Recruiting

    • Division 1

      • Top players in the country recruited as early as Freshman year.

      • Most programs start accumulating lists two years ahead (ex. lists made of the 2015s to email once Sept 1st comes)

      • Most offers made to tops choices Soph year for top schools. Most other 1st choice offers will be end of Soph year beginning of Junior year.

  • Division 2

    • Top D2 programs offering fall/winter of Junior year, hoping to finish by spring of Junior year. Most schools will offer winter/spring of Junior year finishing up Fall/Winter of Senior year.


  • Continued1

    Continued…

    • Division 3

      • Have to wait for trickle down. Most schools get commitments for the same year. (ex. Players commit in March 2014 for the 2014 Fall college season)

        • Top D3 programs will get some commitments during Junior year.

        • Most will commit Senior year

  • NAIA

    • Try to compete for players similar to D2 as they can offer comparable experiences and packages.

    • Commitments will generally be a bit later than D2 mostly because people are not as educated about NAIA opportunities.


  • Redshirt and walk on what do they mean

    Redshirt and Walk OnWhat do they mean?

    • Redshirt

      • Definition: student athlete who does not participate in competition for an entire academic year

      • Practice activities are allowed on a normal everyday basis

      • Traveling with the team on road trips is at the discretion of the coach

      • Four years of athletic eligibility

      • Medical redshirt due to an injury

    • Walk-On

      • You pay for all tuition, books, room and board. You are allowed to receive academic scholarships as a walk on.

      • You will perform, receive, and be treated the same as a scholarship athlete does.

      • You are recruited the same way, and occupy a roster spot on the team

        • Ask about walk on opportunities.

        • Ask if there will be future opportunities for scholarships

    • RED-SHIRT/ WALK-ON COMBINATION OPPORTUNITY

      • Enter as a walk on your freshman year and also red shirt your freshman year. Allows you time to adjust to the collegiate level of play - and still gives you four years of eligibility


    When and how should i make college visits

    When and How Should I Make College Visits

    • Unofficial College Visit-What is it?

      • This is a visit that is not funded by the University and is done on the PSA’s own time and finances.

      • There is no limit to the number of Unofficial Visits that can be made.

  • How to make one-Where to visit

    • Your recruiting director (Evan) or any club director, club/high school coach may help pass on communication.

    • Email or call the coach directly to set up a visit.

      • College coaches use a third party (recruiting directors, club coach ect) to pass on information.

    • Make as many visits as you can as early as you can so you have enough information to compare to when it comes time to making that decision

    • The schools you visit should be schools you have a potential interest in and have interest in you as a future prospect.

  • No Time?

    • A lot of visits are done during the club year, many of them while on the road for a travel tournament.

      • Look at your club schedule, see which schools are on the way.


  • Wisconsin juniors recruiting seminar

    • Official Visits

      • You can make up to five Official – expense paid visits to college campuses.

      • You are not allowed to have an official visit until after your first day of classes of your senior year.

        • Colleges need to have your high school transcripts, ACT or SAT scores, and confirmation of your registration with the NCAA clearing house before you can make a visit.

      • An official visit means the school will pay for the visit by providing or reimbursing you for transportation, meals, lodging and entertainment up to a certain dollar amount.

      • The visits can only be 48 hours so it can be a very jammed-packed trip. Official visits can only be offered by NCAA Division I & II programs

      • Most of these visits are done after the PSA has already committed to the University.


    Timeline and making a decision

    Timeline and Making a Decision

    • Biggest indicator of how soon your timeline will start will be YOUR talent level, NOT your team.

      • (Coaches recruit good players, not good teams)

  • Freshman and Soph- Start the work now, make some unofficial visits, be informed early.

  • Jrs.and Seniors- Don’t panic, still many options even into Senior year.

  • Visit schools more than once, weigh all options with things most important to you.

  • Schools have their timeline just like you have one. Has to be a good fit for both.


  • What should i be doing now

    What Should I be Doing Now

    • Start to be able to answer some questions like

      • Do I want to stay close to home or go far away?

      • What do you want to study in school?

      • Does school size matter?

      • What level of play do you evaluate yourself playing at?

      • Do you want to play immediately?

  • Start to create and put together a personal bio page. Example click HERE

  • Send out emails to coaches with playing schedule and bio page.

  • Think about creating a skills video and start filming match video.

    • This will be something coaches like to see if they can’t make it to a tournament

  • Start to create some relationships with coaches and make some unofficial visits.

  • Browse some college resource websites

    • Get an idea of what certain Universities offer

  • Think about some camps you may want to attend in the Summer/Fall

    • Coaches use camps as great recruiting opportunities


  • Unsigned seniors is it too late

    Unsigned Seniors- Is it too late?

    • NO, its not too late.

      • There are still many options available

    • Many Universities do not have large recruiting budgets, so they don’t have the resources to attend many tournaments, so their strategy is to see which recruits may be unsigned.

    • Determine your commitment level and priorities.

    • Be realistic about your goals, keep all options available!

    • Don’t play for the scholarship!!!!

    • We get contacted a lot mid year about all of our seniors who are unsigned.

      • Our website helps very much


    Njcaa and its options

      • D1- Able to offer full funding

      • D2- Offer funding for tuition and fees
