It's hard to generalize across sports—the football drill is a lot different from recruiting backstrokers—but here are some tips.

Think your child is good enough to play college sports and maybe get a scholarship? According to [****], a measly 1.9% of high school boys will play Division I–level sports (where much of the money is). Girls fare a little better at 2.3%. How do they make the cut? It’s hard to generalize—the football drill is a lot different from recruiting backstrokers—but here are some tips:

BE HONEST ABOUT YOUR CHILD’S TALENT. Few kids are good enough to compete in D-1, so don’t eliminate D-2 and D-3 schools; many have great sports and great academics. An unbiased assessment of your kid’s talent by a high school coach will help narrow the search.

DON’T WAIT TO BE SCOUTED. “Most kids go to tournaments and showcases hoping a coach from the school of their dreams will notice them,” says Matt Wheeler of www.SportsRecruits.com. “That’s not going to happen. Coaches already have a list of kids they want to look at.” To get on that list, create a short highlight video, write a compelling profile (including grades), and send them to coaches. Start as early as your child’s freshman year. That way, you’ll know where things stand by junior year with his or her top school choices.

HIT THE BOOKS. Athletes with good grades have a big edge. Great academics also allow a coach to recruit others with less-than-stellar grades (because your kid’s high GPA helps bring up the recruiting class’s average).

SEEK OUT “INFLUENCERS.”It helps if your kid receives lessons from someone with college contacts. Influencers might also help your child get into an invitation-only college-recruiting camp. Another source: Enroll in a college sports camp, where you’ll be able to work out with the coaches themselves. Some clinics last only a day and run $100 or so. Others can last five days and cost close to a grand.

I don't know who McLaughlin is, and as far as Sue Ryan goes, I hope she was not mistreated in anyway. While I have not seen or spoken to Sue in many years I do have a fondness for her. Sue Ryan is at the top of the good people in local soccer.

Let me look into this and get back to you...

After 31 years the new AD at SBU cleaned house. Rumor has it that the Hofstra coaches are being offered a package to come over en-masse. A big BOTN BOO to the new AD at SBU.

How do you know that a coach/ school isi interested in your child when they are an incoming high school student ?

For example, Is attending a soccer camp where your kid's group trainer at the camp is an assistant college coach and the trainer tells your kid that if they are ever playing in a tournament within driving distance (a few hours away) they would love to come see the kid play a potential overture?

Is receiving a specific invite to a clinic held by a college and good feedback afterward an indication of interest?

Please advise regarding the above as well as provide other examples.

Thank you. We are new to this world and our kid wants to play college soccer.

Obviously the contact rules between college coach and high school student differ prior to junior year. My advice would be to start attending a few camps of those schools that your kid can realistically one day be playing at. Your club coach and administrative staff should be the initial go between to obtain feedback. Any club worth its salt should be providing a formal recruitment process for its players.

Ask.

Yes, it's that easy. Coaches tend to be very honest. Why would they not be?
