Hi - does anyone have experience with transferring to another D1 school or any tips or advice for a player who feels school is not a good fit.
That is a broad question.
What year is your daughter?
Did your daughter sign a National Letter of Intent?
Is your daughter currently receiving an "athletic grant-in-aid / athletic scholarship"?
Is your daughter currently enrolled in the spring semester?
Is your daughter currently on the roster?
Does your daughter plan on finishing out the season, semester on her current team?
Other coaches can not talk to your daughter until she is officially in the "Transfer Portal". If your daughter is currently receiving athletic $$ she will need to ask her current institution for a "release". I believe that if the school does not approve a release the student athlete must sit out 1 year of competition.
Your daughter must request to be put in the Transfer Portal by her current institution. Your daughter can talk to her coach or go directly to the compliance department at her current school and ask to be placed in the Portal.
All NCAA affiliated institutions have access to the Transfer Portal and they can see the names of all of the student athletes who are looking to transfer.
Keep in mind that if your daughter asks to be put in the Portal there is a good chance that the current coach will dismiss her from the team.
Does your daughter have another school in mind? Was your daughter previously recruited by those schools?
If your daughter has particular schools in mind then ask your daughters Club or HS Coach reach out to the coaches at those schools and see if there is any interest.
