What Can Parents Do to Help During the Recruiting Process?
As a parent of a student-athlete, there are some ways that you can help your child out during the recruiting process. You can help your child make a list of schools that he or she is interested in. You can schedule visits to those schools that are on the top of their lists and accompany them on their visits. It is important that you learn just as much about the school as the athlete does. Have your athlete go to the athletic websites of those schools and fill out a recruiting questionnaire for the sport they are interested in. Another thing that you can help with is putting together a highlight video. You can take videos yourself or hire a professional to film games.
As a parent, it would be best for you to make sure your child is on top of his or her grades. Sit down with your child and make goals for their GPA and ACT/SAT scores. Help them study to accomplish these goals. In our previous blogs we have mentioned an athlete resume’. This is another thing that you could help out with. You can make sure all the information is up to date and as accurate as possible. It is also important that you make your child think about the schools in an academic mindset, not just at athletics. Here at Recruit Reels, we create highlight videos for high school-athletes seeking a college scholarship. Our videos are professional and affordable.
