Here we go with another series about the recruiting process. There are thousands of softball players all trying to get recruited. There are hundreds of spots open on college rosters.
Something has to give.
What are the college coaches looking for? There are as many answers to this question as there are people answering it and that is where Fastpitch Prep come in. Our online recruiting seminar will give you an in depth look at all these questions.
This is a short answer version of what the video tells you in great detail.
First things, first. You have to be able to play. Period!
Each program and each level is looking for different types of players so this is a loaded answer, but you have to be athletically talented enough to play at the school you are interested in.
