Now that you know when you are going to work on your recruiting, it’s time to pull the tools together that you need to successfully communicate with potential coaches. We suggest that you do this using a Recruiting Communications Game Plan. The topics on the radio show are taken directly from Module 2, Lesson 6 in playingtherecruitinggame.com.
LISTEN TO THE RADIO SHOW;
TONIGHT’S DISCUSSION TOPICS:
- Point #1: Pulling the Tools Together to Successfully Communicate with Coaches
- Point #2: The Communication Game Plan Strategy
- Point #3: Being Prepared and Showing Your Commitment to the Process
- Point #4: Setting Up Your Communication Game Plan
A Recruiting Communications Game Plan is a strategy system which gives you different ways of sending information to coaches using different technology such as texts, emails and voice messages. This is important because it saves both you and the coach time, it shows you are prepared, and it shows that you are committed to doing your best at all times, regardless of what you are doing.
For example, what would you do if you had coaches texting you left and right during school hours? Are you going to respond to the text during school hours? If you do respond, you run the risk of getting in trouble at school. If you don’t respond, you run the risk of losing the connection with that coach.
You need to set up a recruiting communications game plan because you need to manage your time effectively and this game plan will allow you to organize a lot of information, allow you to talk to multiple coaches and allow you to communicate to coaches even when you are not available.
Bottom line: By following the recruiting communications game plan; coaches will know you are interested and this will make coaches more interested in you.
