Beware of the Hype

Beware of the Hype

Don't get seduced by appealing promises and hype from college coaches! Keep your ego in check and focus on determining the best fit for YOU. Don’t be afraid to ask tough questions of coaches and the members of the team at each school.

Ask the coaches to assess your game, identify skills you need to improve, provide a sense of how you'll fit into their program and list things you need to do to earn consistent playing time.

Their responses should give you a truer insight into the level of their commitment to you and your future in the program.  If it doesn’t seem like the coaches know much about you, they may only view you as a temporary fill-in until they can recruit over you.

Check out our other blogs for how to plan your visits to gain a deeper understanding of the school, team and coaches and make the most informed decision.
