GCA Tip of the Day – Other High School Athletes are Contacting College Coaches. Are You?

Contacting College CoachesBy Steve O’Brien – Goal: College Athlete

Are you waiting for a college coach or program to contact you? There is a few reasons why you shouldn’t be waiting:

  • Other high school athletes are contacting these coaches, meeting them at camps, going for unofficial visits and most importantly they are building a relationship with the coaches and program (they are on the inside)
  • College Coaches WANT to hear from prospective recruits who want to be a part of their program (lot easier to recruit when players comes to you and show a genuine interest in the school and program)


Don’t let other athletes get the inside track. If you want something,  go out and grab it.
