7  Division 1  Top players in the country recruited as early as Freshman year.  Most programs start accumulating lists two years ahead (ex. lists made of the 2015s to once Sept 1 st comes )  Most offers made to tops choices Soph year for top schools. Most other 1 st choice offers will be end of Soph year beginning of Junior year.  Division 2  Top D2 programs offering fall/winter of Junior year, hoping to finish by spring of Junior year. Most schools will offer winter/spring of Junior year finishing up Fall/Winter of Senior year.

8  Division 3  Have to wait for trickle down. Most schools get commitments for the same year. (ex. Players commit in March 2014 for the 2014 Fall college season)  Top D3 programs will get some commitments during Junior year.  Most will commit Senior year  NAIA  Try to compete for players similar to D2 as they can offer comparable experiences and packages.  Commitments will generally be a bit later than D2 mostly because people are not as educated about NAIA opportunities.

9  Redshirt  Definition: student athlete who does not participate in competition for an entire academic year  Practice activities are allowed on a normal everyday basis  Traveling with the team on road trips is at the discretion of the coach  Four years of athletic eligibility  Medical redshirt due to an injury  Walk-On  You pay for all tuition, books, room and board. You are allowed to receive academic scholarships as a walk on.  You will perform, receive, and be treated the same as a scholarship athlete does.  You are recruited the same way, and occupy a roster spot on the team  Ask about walk on opportunities.  Ask if there will be future opportunities for scholarships  RED-SHIRT/ WALK-ON COMBINATION OPPORTUNITY  Enter as a walk on your freshman year and also red shirt your freshman year. Allows you time to adjust to the collegiate level of play - and still gives you four years of eligibility

10  Unofficial College Visit-What is it?  This is a visit that is not funded by the University and is done on the PSA’s own time and finances.  There is no limit to the number of Unofficial Visits that can be made.  How to make one-Where to visit  Your recruiting director (Evan) or any club director, club/high school coach may help pass on communication.  or call the coach directly to set up a visit.  College coaches use a third party (recruiting directors, club coach ect) to pass on information.  Make as many visits as you can as early as you can so you have enough information to compare to when it comes time to making that decision  The schools you visit should be schools you have a potential interest in and have interest in you as a future prospect.  No Time?  A lot of visits are done during the club year, many of them while on the road for a travel tournament.  Look at your club schedule, see which schools are on the way.

11  Official Visits  You can make up to five Official – expense paid visits to college campuses.  You are not allowed to have an official visit until after your first day of classes of your senior year.  Colleges need to have your high school transcripts, ACT or SAT scores, and confirmation of your registration with the NCAA clearing house before you can make a visit.  An official visit means the school will pay for the visit by providing or reimbursing you for transportation, meals, lodging and entertainment up to a certain dollar amount.  The visits can only be 48 hours so it can be a very jammed-packed trip. Official visits can only be offered by NCAA Division I & II programs  Most of these visits are done after the PSA has already committed to the University.

12  Biggest indicator of how soon your timeline will start will be YOUR talent level, NOT your team.  (Coaches recruit good players, not good teams)  Freshman and Soph- Start the work now, make some unofficial visits, be informed early.  Jrs.and Seniors- Don’t panic, still many options even into Senior year.  Visit schools more than once, weigh all options with things most important to you.  Schools have their timeline just like you have one. Has to be a good fit for both.

13  Start to be able to answer some questions like  Do I want to stay close to home or go far away?  What do you want to study in school?  Does school size matter?  What level of play do you evaluate yourself playing at?  Do you want to play immediately?  Start to create and put together a personal bio page. Example click HERE HERE  Send out s to coaches with playing schedule and bio page.  Think about creating a skills video and start filming match video.  This will be something coaches like to see if they can’t make it to a tournament  Start to create some relationships with coaches and make some unofficial visits.  Browse some college resource websites  Get an idea of what certain Universities offer  Think about some camps you may want to attend in the Summer/Fall  Coaches use camps as great recruiting opportunities

14  NO, its not too late.  There are still many options available  Many Universities do not have large recruiting budgets, so they don’t have the resources to attend many tournaments, so their strategy is to see which recruits may be unsigned.  Determine your commitment level and priorities.  Be realistic about your goals, keep all options available!  Don’t play for the scholarship!!!!  We get contacted a lot mid year about all of our seniors who are unsigned.  Our website helps very much

15  National Junior College Athletic Association  Over 525 member schools in NJCAA  D1- Able to offer full funding  D2- Offer funding for tuition and fees  D3- No athletic funding  Junior College is a good option for those who may not be ready to attend a 4 year college immediately but still and a competitive volleyball option with financial help.  This is usually a good transition option from a 2 year program into a 4 year program.  NJCAA College Search Page NJCAA College Search Page
