All Ages and Divisions

  • Coaches want emails and texts with videos of your play and updates on your grades, test scores and achievements! If they are a Division 1 Coach and it’s before June 15th of your sophomore year they cannot respond to directly to you, but can respond to your coaches generally, and will be following your progress.
  • Coaches will be more involved with social media to show their interest – make sure your social media is clean and never decline a college program that asks to follow you.  You should also follow and like/comment posts from programs you are interested in.
