Where would you spend your time and money during the summer after the junior year if your student-athlete has not already verbally committed?
First, start with your top ten academic and athletic college choices and determine how many of those universities saw your student-athlete play during the Spring/early Summer season. That will form a foundation for discussion with college coaches that are hosting summer camps. Clearly, you will first want to consider camps from which coaches have already seen your student-athlete and expressed an interest. If there was a college coach who wanted to see more of your player, Spring and Summer tournament follow-ups would be a great option before laying down the cash for a Summer Camp.
Would you spend the money and time traveling with a club team or spend the time and money going to summer camps? Given that costs will likely be the same, the question is where we will get the most impact.
You will need to consider all of the scheduling weekly to get your best family solution - neither one provides an all-inclusive answer. BOTC believes strongly that you should secure coaching interests before attending a camp as a cold-call on that university. In order to grow interest in your son's or daughter's ability, establishing a solid showcase schedule will be required.
BOTN has a great college forum - hoping that BOTC can build the same solid core.
Thank you for the vote of confidence as both of the College Forums on BOTN and BOTC are reviewed and managed with the same team of professionals.
