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.

  • 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.
slide11
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
