Recruiting and Athletic Scholarships
In order to participate in college athletics at any level, all student-athletes have to be evaluated by coaches and/or recruiters. If you (student-athlete) are not rated as one of the top 300-500 players in your sport, position or event in the world, you need to realize the competition for athletic-related aid has become so intense that student-athletes now need to educate themselves on how to play this game.

It is difficult for both student-athletes and their families to completely understand a coach's evaluation process. It seems that some student-athletes receive scholarships, while others who appear to have equal ability do not. This occurs simply because some student-athletes (”blue chip”) receive more exposure and are listed in hundreds of college recruiting pools. The reality is that there are thousands of scholarships and various forms of need and merit-based financial aid available.

Recruiting of athletes starts with the parents

You think you've got a college athlete on your hands. What's next? Well, more than you know.

High school athletes need a college game plan
UT - 02/02/10
""And though NCAA-member institutions hand out more than $1.5 billion in athletic scholarships to more than 400,000 student-athletes each academic year, only the tiniest fraction are highlighted on signing day, and still fewer will receive the publicity traditionally associated with the big day...For most high school athletes, the process is something much different from the prep stars celebrated in the media."

To protect the privacy of high school student-athletes, the NCAA has established rules about contact with college coaches. Below is a list of important dates in the recruiting process:

Recruiting Realities - It's a Game, Know the Rules
Recruiting Realities was founded to provide student-athletes and their families with an educational resource about the collegiate athletic recruiting process.

Aside from enabling athletes to e-mail their link to coaches, SportsForce serves as a one-stop site for coaches to access an athlete’s profile, including grades, stats and highlight videos. San Diego State, USD, UCLA and USC are among universities utilizing SportsForce’s site.

“We let the families feel empowered and understand how to take action around a proven game plan,” said Andrew Beinbrink, SportsForce founder and CEO. “The education has to come first before the athlete is ready to get recruited.”

Athletes most likely to benefit from a company like SportsForce are those just under the radar, often participating in what colleges call nonrevenue-generating sports — baseball, softball, lacrosse, soccer or gymnastics.
