    I think one of the big things that people on this forum forget is that most of the more active posters on this forum that give a lot of the recruiting advice are parents of pitchers. Not all but a lot. Everyone knows that pitchers attract more attention and are able to get seen easier than your position players. If you have pitcher in your email title you are most likely going to get your email opened. I have seen mediocre pitching get looks and offers before above average position players. Bottom line is that we all know that it starts in the circle. So if you're kid is not a pitcher or a bonafide stud position player that Tim Walton is drooling over when they are 6th graders it may be in your best interest to hire a recruiting service. But be realistic with your options and your DD's potential. Like someone said earlier this lets you cast a wider net and possibly give you more options, or it may not. It's your decision. If choose a recruiting service, choose wisely.

    Thanks to girliesmom's advice, I spoke with Cathi Aradi today and it was the best $30 I have spent! DD is a 2018 and we have done our homework and while some f what she said I already knew, there was important content that was specific to our case that I was not aware of. We are in a difficult situation, but now we are armed with what we need to know for our specific situation so we may be able to pull out of this nosedive!

    That's great to hear! Glad you were able to get some good advice and glad that I was able to pay it forward. Good luck to you and your daughter.

    Save your money. They are used car salesman. Lol

    Email coaches, go to targeted college camps (be realistic in what your child’s abilities are.), play in the right showcases.

    Talk to any college coach and I’ve talked to plenty. They delete emails from services. They want to see your kid invested in the process. It’s not hard, just be dedicated. Make your child own the process. Not you nor a service.
