The above is completely untrue. I have had two daughters play D1, both "recruited" 9/10th grade, they worked their tail ends off to be in that position. Weekly phone calls to no less than 10 college coaches, editing game tape and compiling into highlights, emailing, completing questionnaires, all while playing Open level club, practice 3 times a week, private lesson once a week, tutor for school once a week and college prep classes carrying a 3.6+ GPA. The recruiting process is hard work and mentally exhausting for all involved at any level.Advertisement

Rich Kern's recruiting registry is a great site to use for your daughters profile too. It's free and is a verifiable source for coaches to use. I know that many do, but they also use the other sites too. In this day and age college coaches cant afford not too.

I would still say the bottom line is this.
*Create one profile in full detail, and keep it updated. Update however many other online profiles you choose to create from the main one.
*Make 3 minute video highlights on a regular basis and post on youtube. link the profile and the video's to each other.
*Get evaluated by your director and a trusted coach as to what level you/your daughter is capable of playing
*Write a ton of emails to colleges and follow-up the ones who answer with phone calls and more emails.
*Ask coach where you are on their list.
*Ask If they have scholarship money for your position in your particular class.
*Ask if the offer will be a 2-2, 3-1, or 4year full ride for D1. Average parental contribution if D2 D3 or NAIA.
I've added a great site which will help you learn everything you need to know about the process. Enjoy.
