Overview

PUT ME IN, COACH is an award winning, must-have guidebook for parents and their student-athletes who want to be recruited to compete in athletics at the college level. Because of limited roster spots, only a handful of high school athletes will play their sport competitively in college and even fewer will get NCAA or NAIA scholarships. For your child to be one of them, you need a game plan, and the earlier you start, the better. If you are the parent of a student-athlete who is better than most in high school athletics, but college coaches aren't lining up at your door, you will find PUT ME IN, COACH indispensable. Advice and personal observations from 40 college coaches will help you understand how to market your child so coaches take notice, how to get money from any school even those that don t give athletic scholarships, how to identify the colleges that are the right fit for your child, how to understand recruiting from the coaches point of view, and how to make the right impression and get the most out of campus visits. PUT ME IN, COACH has won the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award and the Next Generation Indie Book Award, and was a finalist for the USA Best Books Award.

About half of the book is common sense, but most of it bears repeating. The other half is very informative. The scholarship scene has changed dramatically since I went to school - D1 vs. D2 vs. D3 athletic/merit based/need based scholarships. Then there’s different application processes: early decision/early action/regular decision. This book does a good job explaining the differences and pros and cons of each of these. The author also provides a number of real-life scenarios that make some of the points easier to understand. There are a number of helpful resources including recruiting cover letter, questions to ask on the campus visits, and worksheet for comparing schools. I highly recommend this book for parents of a student-athlete and the student-athlete as well.
