    Default College recruitment

    Hey y'all I need some help for those who have been here before or those who are doing it right now. Which recruitment website did or do you use? We have one the our high school gave us but I'm not sure about it. So I wanted to see what you guys have used or are using to help your daughters get there chance at college ball.

    What did your HS give you??

    Does your TB team use a team website? Does your team recruiting coordinator recommend a site? If not, then you are on your own. You don't have to have a recruiting website as you can do it yourself. Ask yourself what do you want the site to do, what do expect to get from it, how much do you want to pay, how much effort are you going to put into it. All the sites have a free component to it, but it doesn't really do anything. Also, keep in mind it's just another tool in your bag. If you pay the money then you better use it, otherwise it's a waste. The most well known is NCSA. There are other others such as CaptainU, fastpitchrecruits, TPN (team based). I think if you search within this forum, there are several threads that discuss this very topic.

    If you haven't done so already, buy/read Cathy Aradi's guide.

    And a lot of people are unaware that Cathi also runs Collegiate Softball Connection which is very reasonably priced. She is very attentive and responsive to your questions and concerns. Her service is first rate and I highly recommend her.

    Yes. Before you take another step, buy the book. It will get you up to speed wherever you are in the recruiting process with a great college index in the back half of the book.

    I am also going to recommend purchasing the app "Softball University" or maybe labeled as "Softball-U". It is an app that has pretty much all of the college coaches emails in one location and will save you a ton of time compared to searching the web for email addresses.

    It’s better to burn out than to fade away.
