NCSA is a service to help athletes get recruited. Along with creating a recruiting profile, you can find information on NCAA eligibility, recruiting guidlines, scholarships, and more. Visit www.ncsasports.org for more information.
An easy way to get on a college's radar is to fill out that schools prospect questionnaire. This will let the college know you are interested, open the lines of communication, and let them inform you of prospect camps. Visit any athletic programs website and you should find a recruit questionnaire section.
If you plan to attend a NCAA school, you will need to be deemed eligible by the NCAA clearinghouse. Visit www.web3.ncaa.org/ecwr3/
to set up an account and become eligible for the NCAA.
Once you have found a school that you have interest in, contact the head coach. The biggest misconception is that it is the coaches that always find the athletes. In reality, a majority of players were the ones to reach out first. Here is a google spreadsheet with area college contact information: "College Coaches Contact Information". Start contacting coaches!
