What Your Summer Schedule Should Look Like
Wednesday, May 29, 2013  |  In Recruiting Tips, Exposure Events

The months of June, July and August are probably the most important time in a potential college prospect's calendar year. The NCAA "live" recruiting period will once again span 15 days during the month of July this year, but those are not the only important days of the summer.

Here is a general outline of what we think a prospect's summer plans should look like.

June

- High School Practices/Team Camps

- College Prospect/Elite Camps (at schools that could potentially be a fit for you in the future)

- Individual Workouts and/or Skills Camps (June is a great time to improve before you display your talent in July)

- Market yourself to college coaches while they are making their travel plans for July.

July

- Compete in a combination of NCAA Certified Individual Camps/AAU Events (make sure these events will benefit you and your future college aspirations)

- Be smart during your "off" days during this month. There is nothing worse than an injury or illness during this important stretch.

August

- Rest and rehab any injuries that may have occurred during the busy summer.

- Follow up with college coaches that have shown interest in you.

- Begin planning fall college visits and prepare for a successful start to the academic year.
