So, your kid wants to play college sports – wow, now what? Did you know there are great opportunities out there to be recognized? I didn’t and so I went about it the hard way. I learned that the people who I thought would be the most help, really were not. No one cares about your children as much as you do – and in this podcast I’ll give you some ways to get started.
Part One is here – “Help, My Kids Play Sports!’
Show Notes – My kid wants to play college sports:
1. You – Your Child’s Advocate
You are the best advocate
Playing for high school teams, or on a travel team
Learn about your resources – other team parents, coach, online sources
2. Goals & Focus:
High school teams? Travel teams? Local or cross states? Showcase teams? Tournaments? Recruiting showcases?
Playing in Highschool – Athletic Association for your state:
Search under your state and the keywords “athletic association for ….”
3. College Recruiting
Research colleges – do they have your sport and major?
Contact coaches once you have a website or stats info to send them.
Create your own website or have a professional website created
