GET RECRUITED TO PLAY COLLEGE SOFTBALL

Do you dream about playing softball at the college level, travelling with your team and competing against other college teams? If so, you have come to the right place. The most important thing when starting the college softball recruiting process is to create an online softball recruiting profile. College softball coaches rely on the internet to search and find athletes for their teams. It’s much easier for a college coach to watch 50-100 highlight videos online than it is to watch a full live game. Because of this, it’s incredibly important that if you’re serious about being recruited that you have an online profile. Coaches want to get a snapshot of you as a person and as an athlete. They will want to know you grades, skills and if you will add value to their team. Always play your best and make sure to keep good grades as that is very important to a college softball coach.

HOW TO GET A SOFTBALL SCHOLARSHIP

Once you have decided that you want to play college softball, it’s time to think about what level of competition suits your skill level. It’s also time to think about whether or not you want to try and gain a softball scholarship. There are many factors to take into account when deciding on a school to attend and there may be some great schools out there that will offer you a softball scholarship. The most important thing is to get your name out there with your recruiting profile so coaches know who you are and can actively recruit you. College softball is played at many different levels and there are great opportunities both athletically and academically at them.
