Everything You Need To Know about College Sports Recruiting. A Guide for Players and Parents.
Walsh, Jim; Trubo, Richard
This book is intended to help college-bound student athletes to take advantage of the opportunities in college sports. It describes the recruiting process from the perspective of colleges, explains what is required of the student, and how students and their families can effectively manage the recruiting process to dramatically improve the student's chance of participating in athletics at the college level. Beginning with the decision of pursuing a college goal and an athlete career in college, the book covers all aspects of the preparation process including relations with high school coaches, college recruiters, and personal presentation. The recruiting process is detailed from the institutional and student perspectives. There are hints about preparing for college visits and information for parents. Appendices include a college-bound checklist, the Academic Guidelines of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Letter of Intent, and lists of college contacts, addresses, and telephone numbers.
