TOP 5 RECRUITING THINGS TO DO


1. Develop a recruiting plan and get evaluated by a third party.

What are you currently doing to get evaluated for college basketball scholarships?  What results has your current plan produced?  If you are not currently being contacted by college coaches at least once per week, then you are not being actively recruited.   

You need to be evaluated by as many college coaches nationwide as possible to maximize your scholarship opportunities and securing a college roster spot immediately!   Attending several basketball camps and showcases also increases your evaluation exposure to basketball coaches.


 2. Create your FREE MyScoutingReport NOW! 

Online profiles are the fastest way for college basketball coaches to evaluate a prospects academic qualifications, athletic attributes, highlight/game videos, review game schedules, news articles and how to contact you.   Create your FREE MyScoutingReport immediately for scholarship evaluation by college coaches nationwide!

 

3. Take charge of your game, highlight, or skills video!

DO NOT wait around for someone else to burn game DVD's or edit a highlight video for you!  Take control of your recruiting process by taking action each day until your video(s) are complete and accessible by college coaches.  

When making a highlight video, separate yourself from other basketball recruits by including plays that highlight your foot work, hustle and defense.   


4. Be realistic about your projected college basketball level. 

Too many college basketball prospects get focused on playing ONLY for major NCAA Division I programs, that they miss out on opportunities to play at a lower level and possibly on a scholarship.  


5. DO NOT LIMIT YOURSELF! 

Time and again college basketball prospects limit themselves to only wanting to play at a certain level, local area, in-state, U.S. region or certain conferences.  The fact of the matter is that college basketball coaches get to choose which players they want on their roster and which to offer scholarships to.  It's not the players or parents that choose...once again, it's the college coaches.  By limiting yourself to only certain areas for recruitment, you can bet your life that there will be some college coach around the country that could use a student-athlete like you!    

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL RECRUITING FAQ 


1. When does the basketball recruiting process begin?

The first day a student-athlete attends a high school class, they are considered a college prospect by the NCAA. Basketball recruiting starts early because competition for scholarships is extremely high. 


2.  How do I get discovered?

College coaches can recruit basketball prospects on third-party evaluations from a trusted neutral source like AASR.  If you don't have a discoverable or marketable profile for college coaches to evaluate, then they won't know about you. Remember, if college coaches are not calling you at least once per week, then  YOU ARE NOT BEING ACTIVELY RECRUITED!  Whatever you have been doing to get evaluated by college coaches has not been working, then it's time to change your strategy!


3. How do coaches evaluate prospects?

The fastest way to get a college basketball coaches attention is with a highlight video for them to evaluate your game skills while at their desk or on their mobile device.  Online highlight videos can speed up the recruiting process for both you and college coaches.

 

4.  What is my high school or travel coach’s role?

Most high school coaches also teach classes, coach other sports, teach classes and have families, so earning a basketball scholarship is your responsibility.  High school coaches that are fortunate to have established relationships with college women's basketball programs, are usually with a handful of college coaches within their local area or U.S. region.

CAMPS


Attending a camps are a great way to showcase your skills in front of college coaches.  Benefits of attending camps include:

  • High school basketball players can improve their skills thanks to the instruction provided by college basketball coaches and players. This high level of teaching is particularly helpful for underclassmen who want to develop their game.
  • Basketball camps offer some level of exposure to college basketball programs. But recruits need to realize that there’s not much chance of being “discovered” at a camp. Coaches already familiar with you may use a basketball camp to evaluate your skills. But if they don’t know who you are when you show up, it’s likely they won’t know who you are when camp ends.
  • Camp lets you see how you measure up to talented basketball players. Exposure to other players can provide a good idea of the skills you need to work the most on.
  • A college basketball camp lets you get a taste of campus life. It’s a chance to see a school’s dorms, athletic facilities and other aspects that may help you make a decision when it comes to choosing where you want to play college hoops.

 

Choosing a Basketball Camp

Research is important when choosing a basketball camp. It’s also important to know if you’re going to camp mainly for exposure or to work on your game.

 

If you want to gain exposure you should go to a college camp at a school that’s recruiting you. Remember, coaches don’t do much scouting at camps, so go to a basketball camp where they already know who you are. Find out what basketball coaches will be there, get in touch with them, and let them know you’re coming.

 

If you’re headed to basketball camp to improve your skills, learn as much as you can about the coaching staff. Are they experienced? Do they have a history of winning? Are they known for producing outstanding basketball players? Ask someone who’s been to the camp about the level of athletic talent you should expect.

 

What’s the difference between invite-only “elite” camps and college basketball camps?

 

Elite basketball camps (like the NBPA Top 100 Camp, which is open to the top 100 juniors and seniors in the country) are generally invitation only. This means that the talent level is usually extremely high. The high caliber of skills instruction at these camps, plus a few days of scrimmaging against high-level hoops players, is excellent for player development. If you’re interested in an elite basketball camp, have your coach submit a letter recommending you for the camp.

 

College basketball camps are run by college basketball coaches, and can offer a high level of basketball instruction as well. But college basketball camps also give a basketball recruit the chance to get a feel for the basketball program that he’s considering. Attending the camp at a school that you’re interested in gives you the chance to check out the school’s campus and athletic facilities, as well as gain some familiarity with the coaching staff.
