The Key to Recruiting: Understanding College Coaches
College Coaches Annual Schedules
College coaches are busy coaching their own team from August until early April.
When the college season ends, there are two specific periods of the year that college coaches recruit players; April & July.
If you play in the US in December, do not expect college coaches to be at your games.
Don't Rely on Scouting Services
College coaches have their job on the line every day. If they don’t win, they get fired.
Coaches have to ensure they sign the best players possible to make sure the team can win games. It is far easier for coaches to determine a player’s skills and potential by watching them play in America against American high school players.
Would you trust your job as a coach on a grainy YouTube video of a player from across the world?
