Parents, you are focusing your attention in the wrong direction when your focus should be on college recruiting action.
The recruiting process waits for no one.
You’re thinking that college coaches are supposed to come to you and that’s totally false.
College coaches don’t care about you.
College coaches only care about student athletes who possess superior athletic ability and good enough grades to get into college.
You’re sitting back and waiting for college coaches to find your son or daughter and you’re making a huge mistake; a critical mistake and a mistake that you cannot recover from if you continue to wait.
We are here to help you at Woods Recruiting.
We are here to provide you with recruiting resources and information to help you be the best that you can be and find the appropriate college programs.
The focus of the recruiting process should be to do everything you can to ensure that your son or daughter receives as much exposure to as many college programs as possible.
The best way to do that is to directly put their name into the hands of college coaches and be consistent in that process.
As parents, I know you’re focusing on the big picture of doing the best you can to ensure that your daughter or your son is receiving the proper exposure to college coaches.
But how do you know you’re doing the right thing?
How do you know you’re not making mistakes?
How do you know that anything you’re doing is the right thing to be doing?
Most parents of student athletes don’t know what they’re doing when it comes to recruiting.
How can you know what to do if you’ve never actually done it yourself?
Even if parents have handled certain aspects of the recruiting process they probably have screwed it up.
Focusing on the big picture is where parents remove the blinders to assist their student athletes in recruiting.
The big picture is exposure to a long list of college programs consistently over a long period of weeks, months, and possibly years.
The larger plan is to begin the recruiting process without delay. Those parents who delay the recruiting process by days, sometimes even weeks, are eliminating college programs from the recruiting process and you don’t even know it yet.
The small picture of recruiting is where parents sit back and do nothing.
If the grass in your front yard has grown two feet in length you would not continue to watch the grass grow, you would do something about it. If your car was about to run out of gas you wouldn’t continue to drive it around town knowing you could run out of gas.
You would stop at a gas station.
When it comes to the recruiting process most parents are not doing anything but just sitting back and watching, waiting, hoping, dreaming, pretending maybe even guessing, but the results are not there.
The big picture in recruiting is a college scholarship or strong financial package.
Large numbers of parents are consistently overlooking what it takes to achieve the goal of a college scholarship.
They all want a college scholarship for their athletic children. They all dream of a scholarship for their athletic children. The unwillingness to pursue all available college options is where many parents and student athletes eventually end up losing out on the college recruiting process.
