You don’t need to stay with YJ for your kid to go to a SUNY school. Quit now

Other. The kid has to reach out to coaches to come see her and express her interest in that program. That's how it worked for all my kids, who all played D1 but were not blue chip players.

Club Direvtors take credit for the studs, they are the easy ones. The ones that would get noticed regardless of what team they play on. For the bottom 90% of players most of it falls on the player and the family. But your club will sure as heck post the commit on their website ASAP!!!!!!

September 1st is coming soon, and for those of us who didn't have 2020 daughters that committed have you been told by your club director or anyone who might know what to expect? My daughter was on a handful of visits prior to the rule change, and she still receives "general" interest emails from our club director from coaches, but we really don't know what to expect. We've been told to expect calls fairly quickly, and some people say be prepared to act quickly, but What other hints have parents gotten of interest from schools other than club emails? Invites to camps through snail mail , etc??
How can we truly know what level of interest these schools have? Can club directors say they've spoken to school a or b about your daughter, can they drop you hints?
Let's keep the discussion clean and realistic, and good luck to everyone.

Based on experience with my 2019, she will start receiving contact at 12:01. the schools that she has visited and she had contact with prior to last April will probably have an offer in mind if they liked her then. Others will have offers, if they liked what they saw over the summer and others will string you along, but if there is any interest at all they will contact within hours after 12am. Daughter was fortunate that School she wanted, wanted her and texted at 12:01 and committed first thing in the am

be wary of the ones who string you along that's a sure fire sign that your daughter is plan B if the school can't lock up their plan A kids. If your daughter is hot you will know within that first day. It always seems to work out. Many schools rebels it and so do parents. They jump at the first offers especially if they their kid isn't an absolute top prospect and the vast majority arent

I am curious if the experience differs amongst positions.

Did any of you attend any of the College summer camps as an uncommitted player i.e yale, Brown... are these worth it? General thoughts?

We have been told by our club to expect calls and texts immediately too. You have to figure that if a school is really interested they will be contacting immediately, and as someone said you'll be able to tell if your daughter is plan B. Not that there is anything wrong with plan B, most of the girls on the team are possibly "plan B", girls that aren't superstars but solid players. Like my daughter, a late bloomer.
If you haven't visited a school will the coaches offer scholarships over the phone or wait until they get you on Campus? Do they send the offers via email ? What if you say you haven't been there yet but it's high on your list. Kids do have dream schools, even if they haven't seen them in full.
I really hope my club director/coach are working hard behind the scenes on behalf of my daughter, as she's gotten numerous "interest" emails and visited quite a few schools before the rule change. Since the rule change it has been hard to get a grasp on the true interest, and all we really hear is "be prepared, the phone is ringing and your daughter should narrow her list down."
Exciting and a little stressful at the same time.
good luck to all.

So much about this rule change. People this is the way it used to be. This rule change came to pass because sometime in 2014ish someone thought they could cheat the system. (this accelerated recruiting was new, NCAA let it go for a few years and then reigned it in)

and if I am wrong correct me, but you don't get an email or a letter detailing the offer, it is still a VERBAL agreement. Nothing is in writting. It all happens via conversations, whether on the phone or in person. If it happens on the phone it would be if you have talked with them prior.

I have yet to meet anyone who received an offer where they haven't been seen by the coach (outside of the 1%ers).

REMEMBER IT IS AN OFFER NOT A CONTRACT (FRO BOTH SIDES), SAY YES IF YOU ARE UNCERTAIN. ENTERTAIN AS MANY AS YOU CAN.

Someone said Plan B. that is a horrible way to say it. With 10 or so commits a year they arent all 1st day calls but to call them plan B is wrong very wrong, there is a list of players but plan B come on. if you get a call or even a text id say you'd be on their list pretty high. But now is also a good time to send the schools a letter of interest. Hit the ground running.

remember regardless of what anyone tells you - you are in the drivers seat. You and are parents are in control. dont let coaches or directors steer you where they think you should go over where you want to go Dont poo poo school that arent so good athletically remember it is the academics.
