Recruiting Mistakes


So you want to play college softball? You want to get noticed by college coaches? You are committed to playing at the next level?


You need to check out our Online Recruiting Seminar.


Here is a taste of the kind of information you will get when you do.


Avoid these mistakes!


1. Stop being vague with coaches when you e-mail.

2. Ask specific questions. 

3. Don’t work harder on your search than your game.

4. If you get hurt, it doesn’t mean your recruiting stops.

5. Keep after the schools you are most interested in.

6. Learn to count beyond 1. There are a lot of great opportunities outside of D1.

7. Learn the rules. You can hurt your chances when you break a rule.

8. Be honest — always!

9. No one owes you anything. 


These are just a few of the mistakes that many players make. Check out the seminar and be better prepared.
