“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

Want to know how to get recruited for college sports? Getting college recruiters to notice you hinges on your ability to create an effective plan for communicating with coaches. Athletes must be proactive and reach out to coaches if they want to get on their radar and make their recruiting list. With countless talented recruits across the country, you can’t afford to wait around for coaches to find you.

To get noticed by college coaches, send an introductory email with your recruiting video, key stats and academic information. Next, follow up with a phone call to the coach. Make sure you mention the introductory email. Promptly respond to all communication from coaches, including recruiting letters, emails and social media DMs. As you make your way through the recruiting process, continue to follow up with college coaches by sending them updated stats and new highlight videos. Consider inviting them to watch you compete. Also be sure to show your interest in the program by keeping a close eye on their season. If they earn a big win over a conference rival, offer your congratulations.

At this stage in the college recruiting process, coaches will perform evaluations to determine their list of top prospects. They will also compile a list of “waiting list” prospects who they will turn to if athletes from their target list choose another school. College coaches get in touch with their top recruits and start calling high school and club coaches to get evaluations and recommendations. In many cases, they will travel to major tournaments and showcases to watch recruits compete. They also often personally invite athletes to their own camps, which are typically held on the college campus. Be on the lookout for unofficial and official visit invitations during this time. These visits allow coaches to get to know prospects and determine if they are a good fit for the team.
