You are a high school athlete and you are on the varsity squad. It has been your goal for a while to play your sport in college. Maybe you just starting to think about the possibility of taking you talents to the next level. In either case you need to put a plan in place to make it happen, but don’t know where to start. May I suggest that you get evaluated by a recruiting service.
It order to get recruited understand that you are in for a lot of work. You have the option of attempting the process yourself, leaving it up to your coach to get the job done, or getting a recruiting service involved. Sports recruiting services can be a very valuable asset in the beginning especially. First off when hiring a recruiting service you will have at you disposal an expert to answer questions along the way.
The two most important things to do if you want to get recruited is to get early exposure and have excellent grades. By hiring a college sports recruiting service you will get off to a fast start and get a very valuable edge on your competition. Recruiting services can promote you in a hurry to a big audience. The more exposure the better your chances. A Sports recruiting service can take the initial efforts of making the first contacts for you. The more contacts the better you chances. Are you starting to get the idea?
The big question is which college sports recruiting service do you use. Do your research and find a contact person that you are comfortable with. The question is the contact person that you liked going to be with you during the process or are you going to get handed of to someone else. The next thing to consider when hiring a sports recruiting service is are they a big company or a very small company. A big company may have thousands of clients and you may get lost in the shuffle. A small company may not have the experience or the capabilities to get the job done. I suggest a medium size company where you will have the same initial contact person at your service.
Now lets talk about the investment you will have to make to get the results that you are looking for. There are companies that charge anywhere from $3,000 to zero dollars. Zero dollars invested is going to get you zero results. There is always a price to pay to get a return. Again I am suggesting a middle of the road company when it comes to price. A reasonable investment would be around $1,000.
Bottom line is that a college sports recruiting service will take a lot of pressure off at the beginning. Keep in mind it is up to you to follow up with and stay in touch with any contacts that the service gets you. Good Luck!
