News, Stats, and Opportunities

Just Starting the Process:

  • Create a list of schools you are interested 
    • Make it broad, should have at least 25 - 30 schools you are potentially interested in
    • Include all of the schools that include your major and some that might be a bit broader (in case you change your mind)
    • Remember that if you decide you want to play in your junior year, most Division I and II have most likely offered spots and therefore you should look into Division III schools. 

Continuing the Recruiting Process:

  • Division I:
    • ​Target and attend select university camps between your sophomore and junior year whom you are either interested in or have expressed interest in you. 
      • Prior to attending these camps, make sure to email at least a week in advance indicating your interest level. 
      • While at camp, play your hardest and best, even if you are put in a "bad" group or are told to play a position you don't normally play. 
      • At the end of camp, stand in the line to talk to the coach, repressing interest and asking where you are on their recruiting board and what to work on. 
        • Make a note of what they tell you, and talk to your club or high school coach about it. 
    • **SEPTEMBER 1ST** of your junior year
      • This is the first day a Division I college coach can contact you directly
      • Email the schools that you are interested in reiterating your interest level, 3-7 days prior to September 1st.
      • You may or may not hear from some schools after September 1st, but they are probably contacting you to either invite you up for an unofficial visit, discuss attending a clinic, inform you of where you are in their recruiting board, or various other things. 
      • Be respectful and open-minded to all the emails you receive, and please MAKE SURE TO RESPOND TO ALL. 
      • When invited to go on visits, schedule them appropriately, and create a list of questions based on your itinerary.  
  • Division III:
    • The summer between your sophomore year and junior is when the relationship you can build really starts
      • Pick three or four of your top schools and go to all of their summer camps 
    • During the year, make sure to email those coaches when you go to every tournament
    • Attend spring clinic during your junior year 
    • Attend summer camp summer between junior and senior year
      • While at camp, play your hardest and best, even if you are put in a "bad" group or are told to play a position you don't normally play. 
      • At the end of camp, stand in the line to talk to the coach, repressing interest and asking where you are on their recruiting board and what to work on. 
        • Coaches will usually offer spots during these camps. 
        • As well, they will be able to get a read on you academically to see if your grades and scores are good enough to get you into the school.
