Today is The Elusive Full Ride Scholarship: An Insider’s Guide‘s BOOK BIRTHDAY!
Alison Foley, my co-author of How To Coach Girls, is back for our new book about how to get recruited for college sports.
Without a doubt, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted youth sports. Many high schools are closed. Tournaments and meets are canceled. The new NCAA rules that limit the time periods when coaches can communicate with student-athletes are in effect now, and the lockdown might extend into summer because of COVID-19.
Yet … college coaches have more time than ever right now to read email and watch tapes. They still need to recruit for their teams. This is actually the perfect time to initiate contact. But how? What to say? How to create an athletic resume? How to get a virtual meeting? This is all in our new book!
