Avoid the Beaten Path
Oh, this could be simple- take a call from a national recruiting service who promises to get your child recruited; they will send your child's profile and video out to 300 coaches; they hope that 4-5 of them find interest in your child; you hope those coaches contact your child, offer them a big scholarship, guarantee admission acceptance, and then what...more hoping.
Fallacy- an error in reasoning that renders an argument logically invalid.
When it comes to being a recruited athlete and playing college sports, there are eight common fallacies derailing well-intentioned athletes and parents. For our end-of-summer series, here is-# 2. Email blasts to dozens of college coaches will get interest of coaches. Invalid!
What every mom and dad must know is that email blasts represent a pure reactive-based strategy generating interest of coaches from colleges that don't necessarily match your child's interests or qualifications, though it works well for attracting camp invitations. And that's a well-beaten path.
If you want to end the hoping and avoid the beaten path, then it's time for planning. It's your child's job to target coaches from colleges that specifically match their qualifications and interests.
We do this by working off a carefully constructed college list matching colleges to the student's qualifications and interests along with the parents interests and needs. We put together a personal marketing package and have the athlete broadcast their interests to coaches from the colleges on the list.
Now that's proactive and it works to improve your odds by at least 25 times, that's right, 25 times!
