College recruiting – it can be overwhelming at times.
Here is a FREE 20-minute high-level recruiting education session for club and high school coaches, student athletes, parents and high school administrators. It may not answer every question you have, but it will engage and educate you on information you may or may not have known.
Most of all, it’s going to help someone and that’s the goal. You can listen to it from anywhere – in your car, on the bus, in your office or your room. You can play it during a team or parent meeting or even share it with school guidance counselors. It’s accessible 24-7, 7 days a week.
It’s a quick-hit listening session with experts who want to help you. Have a follow-up question for someone on the panel? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Just some of the topics touched on the call:
Goalies: What should a goalie be doing to help his or her profile, when at times they may not touch the ball much during a game?
NAIA: What exactly is NAIA, does it offer scholarships and how good is it?
D-III: Did you know this is the largest NCAA division? How much do your grades really matter in the recruiting process?
D-I: Most hope to be a D-I student athlete, but only a few really are. With foreign student athletes in the mix, it’s really important to be realistic.
Stop BCC-ing 100 coaches: Colleges know when you do that. Don’t be lazy. Learn about a program before you email. Go out and see a game, learn about its players, talk to people before blindly emailing.
