Ep. 30 | Student-Athletes' Summer Strategies 2020

In the face of COVID-19, what can student-athletes do to maintain (and improve) relationships with coaches during the recruitment process? Should they reach out to coaches? What should they say? What should they do? What should they expect?

Show Notes:

In today’s episode, I focus on what student-athletes should do to begin, maintain, or improve relationships with college coaches during this unusual recruitment period. With the likelihood that Summer 2020 camps, showcases, tournaments, invitationals, and other in-person evaluation opportunities will be canceled, what can student-athletes do to stay in the mix when it comes to recruitment?
