Basketball Recruiting Myth #1: My High School Coach Will Handle All Of My Recruiting. I Just Need to Play. I Don’t Need To Get Involved Until My Coach Tells Me.
Ha! Let’s get real. Your coach has a lot of things to focus on besides you and your college sports dreams. Some of those things your coach might be focused on include her/his own family, other classes s/he may teach, coaching the team… If you’re lucky your coach has real connections with college programs, understands the recruiting process, and has the willingness to guide you through the process of evaluating hundreds of colleges and communicating with coaches around the country. That’s a lot of luck to hope for. Most coaches do not believe that helping you get a college scholarship is their responsibility. Here’s the bottom line: YOU and your parents must make the recruiting process your responsibility. Playing college basketball is YOUR dream. You must properly communicate with the right coach at every school that is on your list and matches your athletic and academic abilities. Here’s the good news: There are nearly 2,000 colleges that recruit female basketball players for their teams. Click EliteBasketballClinic.com to Get Seen, Get Recruited, and Play College Basketball.
