Two Tips for Communicating with a College Coach
Monday, November 12, 2012  |  In Recruiting Tips

Communicating with college coaches is a very important part of the recruiting process. Here are two tips to keep in mind when corresponding with a college coach to give yourself the best chance of achieving your goals of playing at the next level.

1. Be thorough, respond to all letters, email and phone calls because even if you are not interested in a particular school, you never know where that coach may be in the future and how he may affect your college decision and career. Things also may change; an injury or academic issue may cause you to have interest in a school that you may not have thought possible earlier in the process.
2. Be honest with coaches. We understand that it can be difficult to say “no” to a college coach, especially one that you may have developed a relationship with. That being said, it is important to let coaches know of your interest level academically, athletically and socially. The recruiting success rate of a college coach is very low and trust us, they will understand if you are not interested.
