    Travel Teams and College Sports

    Travel Teams and College Sports

    "A common error in parents reasoning is thinking they must spend thousand$ on travel teams."

    Let's accept that often times the most serious athletes play on elite travel teams and many of them go on to play college sports. Fine, however, my son Jeff did not. Yet, he received a full tuition baseball scholarship (a rarity) and was a 3-time DI all-conference player.

    How was he able to do that? He spent two years visiting colleges and meeting their coaches. That's called- building relationships.

    When it comes to being recruited and playing college sports, there are 8 common fallacies derailing well-intentioned athletes and parents.
    Here is-

     

    Fallacy # 7- Playing on travel teams is your ticket to becoming a collegiate student-athlete. Invalid!

    Why is it invalid? Because it's false. Your ticket to playing college sports runs through building relationships and planning for personal evaluations. It's that simple, yet that elusive.

    Travel teams have become a huge business across America. And they no-doubt serve a purpose. But there's no correlation between playing travel sports and playing college sports...zero! There is an absolute correlation between building relationships with college coaches and playing college sports...bingo! 

    That's why our athletes make it their plan to meet and connect with coaches in a meaningful way beyond casual emails and camp invitations. It works!

    Winning Isn't Everything!

    Winning Isn't Everything!

    "A common error in parents reasoning is their belief that a coach's top priority is winning."

    Let's accept the only thing that counts to many Division I coaches of top programs is winning. They get paid well to win, and if they don't win enough, they're sent packing, usually to be hired by another school. But those coaches account for less than 5% of all college coaches.

    For the remainder of college coaches, about 35,000 of them, if they get fired, they will be bounced out of college coaching entirely. For those coaches, many other factors go into their job than winning, such as graduation rates, team GPA, proper conduct of their players, and more.

    When it comes to being recruited and playing college sports, there are 8 common fallacies derailing well-intentioned athletes and parents. What's a fallacy? It's an
    error in reasoning that renders an argument logically invalid. Here is-

     

    Fallacy # 6- Winning is the college coach's top priority and recruiting is their daily objective. Invalid!

    Why is it invalid? Because it's false. Keeping their job is the coach's top priority. Taking care of the current team roster is the coach's daily objective.

    College coaches love their jobs and they all like to win. But if their players get into trouble, don't make their grades, or misrepresent the college, then that can be grounds for getting fired much more so than wins and losses. That type of dismissal typically results in a quick jettison from the world of college coaching. They will not risk that. Therefore, they pay close attention to managing their program and coaching their players. They wake up everyday to check on their players, not to check on emails of prospects.  

    That's why our athletes make it a specific effort to gain the trust of college coaches for enhancing and facilitating the college recruiting process. You child should too.

    Student Loan Debt, a Mounting Problem!

    Student Loan Debt, a Mounting Problem!

    Borrowing money does not make a college affordable!

    As four-to-five million 2017 H.S. grads head off to begin college as a freshman, parents are seen crying on every campus across America as they drop off their child. Tears of joy perhaps, maybe tears of pride, but just maybe some of these tears are mixed with fear of college costs and imminent debt.

    Ahh, the new college graduation class of 2021. Lost in the excitement for thousands of parents is the expense on the family that college will bring. Make no mistake about it, college is a debt-fueled industry. Students will borrow $70 billion from the Federal Government through the Stafford Loan; comprised of student-loans which cap out at $27,000 over four years. Parents will borrow on average three times that amount, approximately $210 billion. This adds up to a loan total for the class of 2021 of $280 billion. That's debt-fueled and that's astounding!

    Don't blame the colleges though. And don't look to the government to bail you out years down the road. These are willful decisions of parents. I love JFK's famous quote-

    "Let us accept our own responsibility for the future."

    What can you do? Accept responsibility and decide to understand the implications of the business transaction you are about to encounter. We have the implications covered right here in our book, available to you in digital or hard-copy.

    College Admissions? But I'm an Athlete...

    College Admissions? But I'm an Athlete...

    "The most common mistake made by athlete-families is bypassing the admissions process."
    Rarely when an athlete-family visits a college do they plan to stop by Admissions and meet with an admissions counselor. They may take a tour, may meet the coach, and may visit the athletic field, but they don't meet an admission counselor.

    When it comes to being recruited and playing college sports, there are 8 common fallacies derailing well-intentioned athletes and parents. What's a fallacy? It's an
    error in reasoning that renders an argument logically invalid.

    For our late summer series, here is-

    Fallacy # 5- I don't have to worry about  admissions, the coach will take care of that for me. Invalid!

    Why is it invalid? Because it's false. You do have to worry about admissions. The coach may help, but it's your job to have credentials for winning an admission acceptance. What every mom and dad should know is that bypassing the admissions process can also cost you thousands in scholarships of which the coach can't help.

    Our athletes make it a specific point to meet with admissions on every college visit. You should too.

    To Become a College Athlete, You Must Have Persistence

    To Become a College Athlete, You Must Have Persistence

    "But the coach didn't respond to my email...I must not be of interest to them." 

    Common, I've heard this hundreds of times. Just what do you expect from sending an email to the head coach. If you expect a quick response and give up on it if you don't get one, then your strength-of-purpose is too weak for this process. 

    A challenge of high school athletes is to understand the need to be persistent in their marketing approach. It takes a lot more than just one email to garner a coach's attention.  

    When it comes to being recruited and playing college sports, there are 8 common fallacies derailing well-intentioned athletes and parents. What's a fallacy? It's an error in reasoning that renders an argument logically invalid.

    For our late summer series, here is-

    Fallacy # 4- nonresponse to emails sent to coaches means the coach is not interested in the sender. Invalid!

    Why is it invalid? Because it's false. What every mom and dad should know is that spending time reading and responding to emails is low on the coach's priority list. What it means is that they don't know your child well enough yet to spend time on them. Until they do, don't expect responses, but don't give up on it either!

    Coaches receive dozens of emails every day. Relate it to yourself, do you respond to every email you receive? Probably not, neither do coaches. However, coaches will respond to emails of prospect's who have established value worthy of the coach's time and effort.
