The College Baseball Recruiting Process is simple, it’s just not that easy. We developed this service to help you and your son through the college recruiting process. This conversation and process will save you heartache, frustration, time, money, etc.
THere IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN:
Getting Exposure to College Coaches
Getting Attention from College Coaches
Getting Offers from College Coaches
They want you to already know they don’t have a huge recruiting budgets.
Rarely Does One Get a Full Ride
They want you to already know that college baseball is a non-revenue generating sport and rarely do players get a full athletic scholarship.
Are You Good Enough
They want you to already know if you are good enough to play at their program.
They want you to already know if you qualify academically to get in their school.
They want you to know if you want to play at their school and are 100% committed to the college baseball lifestyle.
They want you to already know if you will be a good character fit for their team culture.
Christmas Kid or Freshman Flop
They want you to know if you will be a Christmas kid or Freshman Flop.
Everything starts with the 3 big questions that must be answered before you spend a dime on a recruiting service and showcases. The answer seems obvious on the surface, but when you have that first open, honest conversation about college with your son and his desire to even go to college, you might be surprised. Trust me, you want to know the answer to these three questions – it will save you a lot of heartache and potentially serious money down the road.
What College Coaches Want You to Know
The list on the left. We go into much more depth and understanding of each.
Identifying the 6 Key Factors in Finding the Perfect College
The first 5 have nothing to do with baseball. The best place to start is to identify potential schools your son would want to attend if he wasn’t playing baseball. I know this is counter-intuitive, but if the most important thing is your son’s happinness, then this is where we must start the identifying process.
Finally we start digging into the baseball side of the recruiting process and what skill level your son is currently at. This is why our process is different, we show each player exactly what they need to play at the college and pro level. This isnt generic advice, this is advise from someone who has been there and done it.
How to Talk To Coaches
Now it’s time to reach out to coaches you have identified. This is a game changer for most parents and recruits. We don’t take the cookie cutter approach that every program tells you to take. We look at personal preference of each coaching staff and help you communicate with them by identifying their core values. We will show you exactly how to do this.
Narrow the Choices
Now its time to circle back and review all the relationships with the coaching staffs that have been developed up to this point and start looking closely at programs that match your son’s values. We will weigh pros and cons of each potential choice.
Now the real work begins. We have to pick a place. Once we have picked a place, we have to make sure we show up day 1 ready to go. We work with you to understand how to step in right away and make an impression.
