Why Attend A College Recruiting Workshop

  • 1 Feb, 2017

Over the last weekend I had the privilege to help present a College Recruiting Workshop at the 2017 CJSA (Connecticut Junior Soccer Association) Convention. We did a lot of preparation and reached out to many different clubs, organizations and high school to let them know about the event.

We had great numbers and I was very pleased to see there was such a high interest from the parents and players in educating themselves about the college recruiting process. One of my biggest satisfaction is to help others succeed in their sports journey and life. I work toward that every day by educating myself and passing on the knowledge to my players and our audience. It’s very rewarding, especially when you hear a success story from a player or parent that you had an impact on them.

We played a few of of our custom animated videos to better help spread the importance of the message. Overall, we were happy with how the event went and we would like to thank all those who participated in it. Now, what do you think are the main advantages of attending such an event? Well, first of all is the social interaction that takes place and creates an open family environment where people feel welcomed and heard.
