I know I’m a great player. Why aren’t coaches
walking into my high school to sign me senior year?
Most colleges today are cutting recruiting budgets, adding recruiting
questionnaires on their websites, and focusing more on showcases and
tournaments. Most coaches do not have the resources to visit potential recruits at
their high schools anymore. It’s extremely easy for an athlete to be overlooked by
college coaches who have thousands of athletes to scout and hundreds of potential
venues. College coaches don’t read local newspapers and most don’t attend high school games. Only the
top 3% of high school athletes are truly “discovered.” The other 97% need to market themselves to coaches
and be pro-active in the process. Catch Spokane shows you how to do this effectively.
