Although NCAA coaches are not allowed to actively recruit you until your junior year there are a number of things that you should be doing to ensure that you are building the type of background and exposure that will give you an advantage over your competition.
SportsWorx can help you in the early stages by giving you the tools you need to set up the right kind of portfolio and get it in front of the right coaches. As you move into your Junior and Senior years we are right there with you to help with the entire process.
See what we have to offer!
Focus on your academics - Believe it or not, the first thing coaches ask for when they are looking for a prospective athlete is GPA. It is really important to keep your grades up if you want a coach to seriously consider you.
Begin thinking about things that interest you for college. - Choosing the right college is a difficult proposition. Obviously looking for a school that has a sports program and coach that is a match for you is a priority but you need to spend at least as much time, if not more, researching the academic program related to the field of study you are interested in. If you are not happy there you won't be happy overall.
Start gathering your information for your resume - When you present yourself to a prospective coach you need to be prepared. This includes putting together a resume that tells about your grades, athletic highlights and stats and other pertinent information. The SportsWorx Starter Website Profile provides you with your own online web site to build this resume to share with coaches.
Join a travel team - The best athletes usually play outside of their High School team on travel teams and sports clubs. This gives you greater exposure to other athletes outside of your geographic league boundaries and shows coaches that you are serious about your sport. Many college coaches look to these organizations for the top talent.
Call a few college admissions sports programs - Ask what they look for in potential candidates for their school. This will give you an idea of what to prepare for.
