June 15th is approaching (after this weekend, already?) and that’s a big deal to Division I college programs and the class of 2022 Prospective Student-Athletes (PSAs). This week, as a resource for the class of 2022 PSAs, PrepVolleyball is focusing on this June 15th date and what it means. We’ve talked to club recruiting coordinators around the country about specific questions and stressors PSAs might have regarding the impending date.
On Friday, we’re laying out some of the common challenges of recruiting these days which apply not only to the 2022 class but 2021s as well. Then, we also offer some positive advice to help keep PSAs motivated
As of May 2019, the NCAA rules changed to prevent Division I
coaches from having communication with PSAs until June 15th before their junior
year of high school. With the COVID-19 pandemic, the rules have been in flux
this year and it wouldn’t surprise us if that date was changed too.
We should note that this focuses on NCAA Division I
institutions in the sport of volleyball. The other divisions have more relaxed
rules and time-tables. For instance, in Division II, June 15th is also when
volleyball coaches can reach out to PSAs from the class of 2022. However, the
PSAs themselves can call coaches at any time before then and they can talk
specifics regarding interest and make them an offer. A Division II coach can
also welcome PSAs on unofficial visits. These events can not occur at the
Division I level.
