Understanding Athletic Recruiting
  • December 1, 2021 at 4 pm PT
  • Hosted by Jeffrey Durso-Finley and Holly Burks Becker
  • Event flyer
In this webinar, students and parents will examine recruiting from an educational standpoint to learn how counselors can “coach” them on how to ask the right questions, self-recruit to achieve their athletic goals, and avoid the “Here’s How to Win a Scholarship” distractions from popular media and for-profit recruiting services. We will include the latest trends in athletic recruiting, including specialization, early commitments, the rise of club sports, the nuances of NESCAC and Ivy league recruiting, the accelerated timeline, and the impact of the pandemic on recruiting from both the coaches’ and students’ perspectives. ​

US NAVAL ACADEMY INFO EVENTS 

Over the week of Thanksgiving, the US Naval Academy sends some students home early to their hometowns to talk to schools and candidates. For those unfamiliar with the Naval Academy, we are located in Annapolis and one of the 5 US service academies. Students earn a 4 year bachelors degree and a commission as an officer in the US Navy.  
 
In our area, we hold a few big events during the week of Thanksgiving so candidates can connect with midshipmen currently attending the Academy. This is a great opportunity for students and parents to learn more about the Naval Academy, what life is like there, and get some good tips from successful candidates who are now midshipmen.
 
The event at Chapman University is at 6pm on Monday, November 22nd. Attached is a flyer that also has some other events in the greater LA area that your students may want to consider if you can't make the Chapman event.
 
If you have any questions, please let me know.
