Most basketball players take the wrong approach to recruiting. They take the “sit back and wait” approach. They sit back and wait on college coaches to come to them. When they should be taking the proactive approach. I call it the “Get Me A Scholarship” approach. When you sit back and wait, you may be waiting forever or you may end up with 1 or 2 offers. However, when you are proactive at getting a basketball scholarship, there’s a better chance that it’s a win-win for you and the women’s basketball program.
Part I emphasized academics. College coaches will ask about your grades and test scores. If you implement the tasks in Part I, you will quickly be able to provide the information. This post will focus more on your basketball skill development. Part III will center around recruiting.
Set Goals for the Upcoming Basketball Season
Growing as a player requires establishing targets to reach for. If you’re not pushing yourself by setting goals, you will settle for being the same player with the same skills as last season and the season before that and the season before that.
Completing the Evaluate Your Summer Basketball Performance task in Part I, should give you an idea of some goals you would like to accomplish for the upcoming school year. You can also talk with your school coach to assist with setting goals. Make sure to write down your goals. That way you can go back and view them periodically.
