Step Two: Setup your Email

In order for you to contact recruiters, you are going to need an email. It's important to create one in the following format (suzysoftball2017BUZZ@gmail.com) Of course, you can use whatever email service you decide on. Email is an important tool in the recruiting process because it allows you to contact prospective coaches once you find a college or university that is appropriate for you. Here are a few email service providers that offer free email addresses. Yahoo, Google, MSN
 



Step Three: Generate a Recruiting Profile

Obviously, several colleges and universities seek information about you upon your expression of interest. Generally, colleges and universities will have a form to fill out so they can have your information in their system. However, it's always a good idea to generate your own profile. When dealing with numerous colleges and universities, you will find various perspectives of what they would like to see. Although you can search your college prospect one by one, there are several applications available on the internet that provide a plethora of tools. NCSA has a great recruiting site and offers a lot of assistance, along with an application for your iPhone or Android device, which allows you to have recruiting tools available all the time. 
 



Step Four: Register with the NCAA

One of the most important things about your recruiting approach is to keep things in perspective. The NCAA has plenty of resources that will assist you through the recruiting process. You can visit their site and browse as much as you like. You will find they have different resources for D1-D3 Universities. You can also register with the NCAA by clicking here


 



Step Five: Stay Busy

Getting yourself recruited is highly dependent on how much you put into it. There is a tremendous amount of persistence and dedication involved in the process. Identify what college or university is going to be a good fit for you academically and look into their sports programs. Cast your net BIG and narrow things down as you weigh the pros and cons with each prospect. Remember to keep your Coach, Player Agent and College / University in the loop with what you are doing. Share your ball schedule, grades, etc....use all the tools and resources to your advantage. Learn in the process and keep your head up! Hustle! Hustle! Hustle!
