How can I impress college coaches?

General - 4 February 2014

When it comes to athletic recruitment, coaches do not only consider your athletic results and
abilities. There are many other factors coaches take into consideration in their decision whether they
want you in their team or not. Some of those factors include:

  • Academic results; as a student-athlete, you are also expected to perform well in the
    classroom and show you are genuinely concerned about your grades. Coaches always take in
    to account your GPA and your test scores, such as the SAT and TOEFL.
  • Communication with the coach: when you’re in contact with coaches, it is important to show
    interest and to be responsive: don’t wait very long to respond to a coach.
  • Video footage: the coach wants to see you play. By watching video footage of you while
    playing, the coach can get a good impression of your athletic level. You can find a lot of
    examples of recruiting videos on our YouTube channel.
