Image Athletics Recruiting – An Overview

Image Athletics Recruitment Matters:

The college experience, for many people, amounts to the most significant years of a person's life. When you're in college you discover who you want to become and you pursue it to your full potential. And for many high schoolers, the dream of being recruited to a college team can provide them with scholarship opportunities that will help them enjoy that experience even more. The college recruiting process is detailed and difficult, and hiring a professional to guide you through this time can help you achieve a top college preference.

When you are trying to be accepted to a school, you simply apply, go through the interview process, and then wait. But with college sports recruiting, the process is much more in-depth, and requires a lot more participation than both the athlete and the school. Your extraordinary talent can give you the means to be accepted to a college sports program; expertise from a firm that wants to get you into the sports program of your choice can help you actually get there.

The college sports recruiting process can be a frightening ventilation if it is not well-managed and implemented. Professionals can help you organize a plan and pursue your dreams with you eagerly. Below are a number of tips on how to get ready for your college years and make the best out of your chances on admission to your top college preference.

Just the Facts:

Assembling detailed facts about your sports career is significant for creating a creditable application. Structuring an informational profile about yourself as an athlete can help colleges start hunting for you. You can start this as early as ninth grade; keep track of your athletic accomplishments and make a profile. When the time comes to find a sports recruiting agent you will be well prepared. By the time you are ending your junior year though, your sports portfolio should be a well-planned, disciplined project.

Aside from getting together the facts on your sports career, start browsing colleges. Look at sports programs and keep information on the ones which you are interested in. The more you know about a school, the easier it will be to decide which programs are right for you.

Be Organized and Thorough:

Maintain a precise profile that is neat and professionally formulated. Make your profile easy to read so that a college coach can peruse it without training to find the facts about your career. Highlight relevant information for college sports recruiters. Maintain a copy of your standard profile to send out to every school you are interested in – and then personalize 5-10 profiles to be sent to your favorite college sports programs. These steps can help you catch the eye of a football recruiter or a basketball recruiter. Sports scholarships such as baseball scholarships, tennis scholarships and football scholarships can help ease the financial burden of college – and make the most out of your college years.

6 Characteristics of the Lion to Consider For Your Own Leadership

As a leader, there are certain qualities and characteristics of lions that you might find useful to consider – for yourself and your “pride.” Let us just take a few minutes to explore these and as with all metaphors, we aren’t going to beat this one to death.

1. Protective

You don’t have to watch very many Discovery Channel shows about lions to see how very protective they are – of territory, themselves, their young, and so forth. As far as being more lion-like, what do you need to be protective of? Protective of yourself? Your money? Your children? Your partner? Your spouse? Your business? Your colleagues? Your position? Your beliefs? So, exactly what do you need to be protective of?

2. Brave

Being lion-like means you are brave and courageous. Naturally, you choose when and where to be brave vs. timid, courageous vs. cowardly. We all make choices every day. Look for opportunities today and every day where you can be brave. It does make a difference, both for you and for others.

3. Willing to fight

Hmm…we know that lions will fight when need be. They don’t pick fights but because they are willing to protect their food, their mates, their territory and so forth, they will fight if necessary. What is the one thing you are willing to fight for?

Many readers are parents and my guess is that many parents would be willing to fight for their children. Or maybe you are a professor who is willing to fight when you see other faculty members being bullied. Maybe you are a teacher who is fighting for particular students who need your “protection.”

What is it for you? Really. What are you willing to fight for? The one thing?

4. Hunters

LOTS of people are concerned right now about financial issues. Someone wrote to me recently that she had overheard middle school girls in the bathroom at a movie talking about how they needed to come up some ways to earn money because after the legislature was over, their parents weren’t going to be able to give them money for the movies any longer. You might be one of the people who is “hunting” for money. You might be hunting for it for your own personal situation or you are hunting money for projects at work or for community needs and the like.

But what else do us lion-like folks hunt for? You might describe it thus:

  • Bravery to find what really makes me happy
  • Bravery to ignore what others feel is successful and find my own success
  • Bravery to dare to make dramatic changes in the path of my career that will also change my personal life…and vice versa

What are you hunting? And just like a lion on the Savannah, you may or may not find it, but you hunt regardless.

5. Group members (part of a pride)

6. Loners in the big scheme of things

The last two – being part of a group …
