New for 2021, athletes will be able to add an Athletic Evaluation!
Why an athletic evaluation?
An athletic evaluation provides you and your child a list of programs where they can actually compete at the next level. With nearly 2,000 college volleyball programs, it can be daunting to identify schools where your athlete can compete. College volleyball recruiting expert Kara Hill and the My Recruiting Solutions team will provide insight on your child’s forecasted level of play. Whether you are trying to use volleyball to get a leg up into a top academic school, or earn a college scholarship, an evaluation is key to helping you save time and money on your athlete’s recruiting journey! Once you register for the eval, the MRS team will reach out to schedule a meeting to learn more about your goals. Following the showcase, you will receive the assessment which will include the conferences that match where your child is from an academic as well as an athletic perspective.
Don’t waste time playing the name game and reaching out to programs where you can’t play! Get the athletic evaluation so you can run a more effective marketing campaign and be recruited.
Optional price: $425 (you will see this as an optional add-on during showcase registration)
