My Top 5 Back to School College Recruiting Tips!
Number 5 – Set up an Online Calendar
Set up an online calendar like a Google calendar, which you can get for free with an Gmail email address. Set one up today, for free at Gmail.com. Once you create your new calendar insert all of your games, practices, gym workouts, dances, tests, family events, etc. Then go in and block recruiting work, like sending emails to college coaches, around your already busy schedule. This will increase your chances of doing your recruiting work in a timely manner. Plus this is great time management practice because once you do get on the college team of your dreams if you don’t know how to manage your school, sport and social life then that will greatly decrease your chances of success on and off the field your freshman year.
