As another club season is in full swing, it is time to start thinking about the recruiting process. For some of you, this is the first time you will begin to think about the process. For others, this season will bring you one step closer to making a final decision about college. Wherever you stand in this process, it’s time to get informed and think about the possibilities that lie ahead of you.
Generally, families feel that the recruiting process is a very stressful time. If you are afraid of the recruiting process and only see the pressures of the situation then you will feel the stress. But if you embrace the process and see the opportunity that is ahead of you, then this can be an empowering experience. We encourage you to be goal driven. Find out what is truly important to you. Look inward with your family and those closest to you and build a map of where you are trying to get to. These are all things that only you can determine.
Do you want to play for the best possible volleyball program?
Is it more important that you get to play early and often?

Make informed decisions and remember to enjoy the journey.
