Kentucky High School Athletic Directors Association Takes Steps to Help Families with Recruiting
(Lexington, KY) – The Kentucky High School Athletic Directors Association (KHSADA) is proud to provide a new nonprofit service designed to assist families in being properly educated about the athletic collegiate recruiting process.
The Recruiting Education Foundation Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit venture, is now providing KHSADA with recruiting webinars for high school athletes and their families in the state of Kentucky. The webinar is available at no cost, and can be accessed through the homepage of http://www.khsada.org/.
KHSADA Executive Director JimWatkins said of the webinar launch, “All too often our families are being tempted to spend money in order to have their child recruited. KHSADA feels families should listen to our recruiting webinar prior to allocating any sum of money into recruiting. KHSADA feels this service will do a long way in properly educating families about the recruiting process and assist them in making proper decisions about the recruiting process.”
The KHSADA recruiting webinar, which is found on the homepage of the http://www.khsada.org/ homepage, addresses these and other recruiting topics:
? Three rules of being a parent
? Scholarship myths and facts
? NAIA and JUCO education
? Scholarships, do they differ?
? The Name Game
? Negotiate/Cooperative Education
? Dangers of social networking/cell phones
? National Letter of Intent
? NCAA/NAIA Eligibility Centers
? Recruiting Services
? NCAA core course requirements
Jim Watkins went on to say, “There is a misunderstanding that the recruiting process doesn’t start until a student’s junior or senior year. Families and students who have aspirations of playing sports in college must begin to prepare themselves for the recruiting process starting in their freshman year of high school. KHSADA highly recommends every parent of a student athlete dedicate 60 minutes of time to watch our webinar. We feel it will go a long way to get our kids and families on the right track with recruiting, and more importantly, academics.”
