How do I get top schools to really notice me when it comes to sports.
My name is Yazlynn. I am 15 and a sophomore in high school. I love sports/hobbies. I did dance for a few years then last year, I wanted to try something new so I did volleyball and thankfully made the team. Not many big schools come to watch us play here in Boston so it's kind of hard to get noticed. sports scholarships collegefuture
He did his research on the schools he wanted to attend in D-1,D-2 and NAIA. He prioritized by schools he wanted to attend and what was the best fit for him from an athletic and academic standpoint. He then set up a spreadsheet to track who he emailed and used that for his follow up if he had not heard back from them within a certain time frame. You can find the email and Bio on most college coaches at any school.
This will require a lot of work and time on your part with timely follow up. You have to execute your plan and work at it. You will be shocked at how many coaches reply.
Good luck and if you want more details on a game plan I can get you my son's email.
Even if recruiters don't come to your school to watch, colleges will also see your persistence and dedication to something you love - like sports/hobbies - in your college application. So my advice is to choose one or two hobbies that you love (like volleyball and dance), be the best you can be at it, and see if there are opportunities for you to be a leader - like being Team Captain, Team Treasurer, Team Social Events Coordinator, etc.
Hope this helps!
