RECRUITING FAQ's PAGE

 
 

Is it only the top players who get recruited?
      No. In fact, often the top athletes don't get offers because they don't understand the recruiting process and simply expect to be discovered, while students with not as much athletic talent get lots of offers because they know how to research schools and market themselves.

Does the My Game Plan program really work?
      Yes! Every athlete in the program has received personal communication from college coaches, and over 80% of participants have continued to compete in the college ranks.  In some areas of the country we have helped to more than triple the number of athletes taking their game to the collegiate level.

How does My Game Plan identify colleges for each student-athlete?
      We have a custom database of more than 1,800 colleges and the sports they offer (even bowling and rifle).  Participants complete our simple “School Selection Survey” which allows us to sort by region, state, academic strength, average GPA, specific majors offered, type of institution, specific scholarship programs, and level of college play.  
           
Will I violate any NCAA recruiting regulations by using a service to help me in the process?
      No.  The NCAA  amateurism rule 12.3.3.1 regarding talent evaluation services and agencies says, “A prospect may allow a scouting service or agent to distribute personal information (e.g., high-school academic and athletics records, physical statistics) to member institutions without jeopardizing his or her eligibility, provided the fee paid to such an agent is not based on placing the prospect in a collegiate institution as a recipient of institutional financial aid.”  You can’t use an agent to represent you, agencies can’t charge a fee contingent on you signing or taking a percent of that signing, and the fee can’t be adjusted for different athletes.  Click here to see a full copy of the amateurism rule regarding agencies. With My Game Plan you pay a one-time fee to help you understand the process, make a good college choice, and get a quick start on getting your name out to coaches of schools that matter to you.

When is the time to start the recruiting process?
      The Athlete Advising program works best when students start early junior year when you have enough information to match colleges with your academics, interests, and athletics. Some athletes join our program sophomore year to make sure they don’t miss any steps in the process as well as have another summer to attend college athletic camps.  You may start the program in your senior year, but some opportunities may be lost.

Can I do the recruiting process on my own?
      Absolutely, but most don’t understand all the steps to take (we’ll show you), don’t know which schools and coaches to contact (we’ll identify them for you), don’t have the time it takes to get started (we do the initial work for you), or don’t want to spend the money to do all that is needed independently (our system saves for you).

Is there really athletic money out there?
     
Yes.  Over 500,000 athletes compete at the college level, with over $1 billion in scholarship money.  Many coaches actively seek quality athletes to give this to, and many quality athletes miss the opportunity because they don’t know how to let coaches know who they are.

COACHES' COMMENTS

“I enjoyed your passion and enthusiasm for student-athletes in Alaska and helping kids use it as a driver for college.  What you are doing for players is great.  The better the match the less time and money everyone wastes!”  Albion University Men’s Soccer Coach

“My Game Plan is the only recruiting assistance organization I would recommend.  They have developed the best process for getting student info out, help students identify schools that truly fit their needs, provide great guidance, and greatly reduce the workload, organization, and stress.  Families can certainly go through the process on their own, but My Game Plan will certainly make it easier and more effective.”  Director of Midnight Sun Volleyball.

“You, as a high school student, should take an active role in soliciting information from schools that interest you.  You would be wise to take advantage of all opportunities to gather information early in your high school years so that by your senior year you will have a lot of information upon which to decide.” – Indiana University Women’s Soccer
