If you are wondering how to get an athletic scholarship, here are simple and easy steps to go through it.
- Determine your academic goals first – By setting a goal, this actually lets you focus on the schools you want. Find a school that meets your academic, social and athletic goals.
- Decide what kind of athletic experience you want –You need to have an informed opinion about what life as a college student athlete is. Ask your coaches about it and look into schools where you can compete at a higher level. There is no point being a student athlete if you are not in an environment that encourages you to be better at what you do.
- Understand the recruiting process – Know when the recruiting process begins so you can prepare. For most student athletes, the official recruiting season for the majority of sports begins on July 1 in the summer after junior year and it ends with the official admissions letter from the college.
