NH STUDENT LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE 2020
We had a great lineup of presenters ready to go for NH Student Leadership Conference 2020! Here's your chance to see and hear from them. Thanks NHIAA for sharing this post.
Due to the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic, the NHADA and NHIAA jointly decided to cancel the 2020 New Hampshire Student Leadership Conference. High schools across the state have begun remote learning and we want to contribute by providing resources from select presenters from this year's conference. We were very excited to have some new presenters at NHSLC20, and we want to provide student leaders with a chance to see and hear what they are all about.
STUDENT-ATHLETE RECRUITING TIPS
- Take an active role in your recruiting process. Don’t assume college coaches will seek you out. With athletic contests currently on hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to be proactive.
- Make sure you include key people in your recruiting process (i.e. parents/family, high school head coach, guidance/college counselor, club coach, NCAA Eligibility Center).
- Work with your head coach, college counselor (available via Zoom) college athletic recruiting director, family, etc. to create a list of 10 schools based on your academic fit, athletic fit, and social fit. Use this as your starting point and you can add and subtract schools throughout the recruiting process.
- Create an athletic profile including your name, contact information, highlight link, and academic/athletic accomplishments to email to college coaches.
- Consistently communicate with college coaches of schools you’re interested in via email, phone, text, Face Time, etc.
- Questions to ask college coach: what’s their vision for you in their program, school’s academic requirements, team graduation rate, coaching philosophy, current roster for your position, and scholarship availability.
- Stay consistent with your academic work (virtual learning) and with your individual workouts and training at home.
- During the recruiting process, try to use your full name for your social media handles (and use the same handle across all platforms if possible) so it makes it easier for college coaches to find you.
- Use social media platforms to post not only athletic highlights (link in bio), but also practice drills, individual workouts and camp performances. Also, remember college coaches are viewing all content you share on social media.
- Take virtual tours of campus and facilities.
