If a high school athlete wants to play in college, when is the best time to approach college coaches?
The short answer is, “It depends.” Generally, an athlete who knows he/she wants to continue to play in college should start thinking about a plan during sophomore or early junior year. There is a lot of research to be done, including whether to play at the Division I, II or III Levels. Each level involves different recruiting policies. I have found that a student’s high school coach can be very helpful with suggestions, even connections at the college level. I suggest the student start with the website http://www.ncaa.org for more information.
