“The NCSA recruiting network provides the ideal platform for talented student-athletes to connect with the right college coaches. NCSA’s strength is that it meets the needs of both athletes and coaches for a more efficient and productive recruiting process.”

– Jim Carr, President of NAIA

“NCSA was literally the best decision we made regarding our son’s recruitment. NCSA will teach you how the process works, how to write emails to coaches, how to market yourself, what coaches look for, how to select a school that best fits, and most importantly, not to focus solely on D1 schools. You’ll also get a counselor who will work with you every step of the way. All of them are former college athletes or coaches who are familiar firsthand with the process. I cannot speak highly enough of NCSA.”

– Parent, Class of 2016 Baseball Commit, University of Virginia’s College at Wise

There are no shortcuts in the college recruiting process. The more knowledge student-athletes have about each step in the process, the better they will be able to navigate its twists and turns. College athletic recruiting, especially at the D1 and D2 level, is extremely competitive. Out of the millions of high school varsity athletes across the country, only a small percentage make the cut and go on to compete in college.

When building your target list of schools, a little extra research can help you lock down a roster spot. Focus your efforts by reviewing teams’ websites for rosters to see which programs are losing a big class of graduating seniors or have a lack of depth at the position you play. If you reach out to these programs, you should automatically have a better chance of receiving recruiting interest from coaches.

While other athletes are on vacation over the summer, you should use the extra free time to get a leg up on the recruiting process. Coaches typically have more free time over the summer and use it to check athlete emails, organize whiteboards, review highlight videos and attend camps, tournaments and showcases.

Highlight videos are a key component of the recruiting process. Update your highlight video around every six months to make sure college coaches are watching your very best skills and abilities. In addition to sending your highlight video to coaches as an email attachment and housing it on your NCSA recruiting profile, post your highlights on social media and follow coaches and programs on your target list to boost views and gain exposure. If a college coach has been in contact with you, tag them and tweet at them. Your video should be no longer than 2-3 minutes. Lead off with your best plays and focus on the fundamental skills specific to your position.
