Like most athletes, COVID 19 has likely thrown your sporting dreams and goals set for 2020 off-track. With all the major sporting events have been cancelled, and the goals you had set for yourself are now being pushed to 2021. Like many, you may be unsure what the future will hold, but the possibility of you going to study, earn a university degree and play college sports can still be a reality. There is no better time to start planning for your future than TODAY!
Obtaining a sports scholarship is a lengthy process, and we advise all our student-athletes to begin their scholarship journey from as early as Grade 10. "Why", Some of you may ask? Well, USA college coaches, as per the NCAA recruiting rules, are allowed to start awarding sports scholarships from the 15th of June in the student's grade 11 year, meaning you should be planning for this day well in advance. Although it is late to start the scholarship process in your grade 12 year, it is not the end of the road for you. If you move quickly, you can still get some fantastic opportunities.
By starting the scholarship process early, you will put yourself ahead of the pack. How? If you have all your sporting and academic records on file and your highlight videos are readily available, this will show coaches your level of commitment and dedication as a student-athlete. This may potentially put you in a position to earn substantial scholarships. Here is a list of things you should start to gather for the scholarship recruitment process:
