T09. Understanding Athletic Recruiting in the 21st Century

Thursday, September 23, 2021

08:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Athletic recruiting is one of the more confusing processes for counselors, students, and their families because it involves a tricky intersection of parent expectations, student aspirations, coach idiosyncrasies, and conflicting league policies. Examine recruiting from an educational standpoint to learn how counselors can "coach" students and families on how to ask the right questions, self-recruit, and avoid the "here's how to win a scholarship" distractions from media and recruiting services. Hear the latest trends in athletic recruiting, including specialization, early commitments, the rise of club sports, Ivy league recruiting, and the accelerated timeline.
