In the 2018-2019 school year, there were 7.9 million high school students participating in sports. For a lot of student-athletes with a desire to play at the collegiate level, the recruitment process can seem daunting with so many moving pieces and rules. There is one question on almost everyone’s mind: How do I get noticed?
This is where the recruiting video comes into play — think of it as the movie trailer to the main event. A well crafted, sport- and position-specific highlight video can pique the interest of a college coach and encourage them to make the effort to see you play in person. It gets you on their radar, more so than a simple introductory email will do. You are giving them more information to help them decide whether you are a fit for their program. Annual or bi-annual video highlight updates enables coaches to watch your progress over time and improvement. When done well, recruiting videos can be a critical piece of the recruiting process.
Our counselors can help you create a video that stands out from the competition and draw attention to your strengths, so explore the difference between the consultation and packages to determine which best suits your needs.
