Get your teen recruited to be a college athlete.

The Recruiting Code and the How to Get Recruited Guide help you figure out the recruiting process so your high school athlete can become a college athlete without wasting thousands of dollars on a recruiting service or worrying your teen will miss out on amazing opportunities.

You can figure this out and do it with your teen.

If you fail to figure this out you’ll end up hiring a recruiting service to do what you could have done yourself.

Or…your teen will have to accept the one bad offer they get from a college coach.

Or…your teen’s dreams of being a college athlete will be destroyed. After graduation, your athlete will quit their sport. Forever.

But you can do this! The Recruiting Code is here to help.

What The Recruiting Code is NOT:

  1. The Recruiting Code is NOT a scholarship promise. I hate false promises of full-ride scholarships for every athlete. Those are lies. Nothing in life comes easy. Getting a college scholarship is no different. I can teach you what to do but the results will depend on the hard work you – and your teen – are willing to put into recruiting. Plus a little bit of good luck.
  2. The Recruiting Code is NOT a recruiting site that charges you money to do the work for you. I do not write your emails or send them to coaches for you. I won’t create your athlete’s resume. If your teen is dedicated to becoming a collegiate athlete, you can do a better job yourself. Instead, I’m like a coach pushing you to do your best, but I can’t take your place in the game.

You can feel confident about college recruiting

The Recruiting Code gives you the resources you need to replace your confusion and uncertainty with knowledge and confidence.

  • Read unbelievable articles that tell you exactly how to get your athlete recruited. Any sport. Any level.
  • Plus you can read fantastic interviews with college coaches at every level from a variety of sports. Actual coaches telling you exactly what they’re looking for? Score.
  • The How to Get Recruited Guide lays out all the ideas from this website in a step-by-step format that is easy to follow. Every parent can help their athlete make college dreams come true. And the How to Get Recruited Guide costs A LOT less than a recruiting service. Because I don’t think you should go into debt just to get your teen recruited.
