At NCSA, technology and experts work hand-in-hand to guide families through the collegiate athletic recruiting process. While our recruiting experts provide personal assistance and advice to families, NCSA’s Recruit Match platform enables student-athletes to find and connect with college programs at any time.
Download the NCSA app in the App Store or on Google Play to manage your recruiting wherever you are, right from your phone. You’ll know instantly when a college coach views or follows your profile, sends a personal message or posts a roster opening.
Your online NCSA Recruiting Profile provides college coaches with a snapshot of who you are as a student-athlete. Add your athletic stats, highlight video, academic information, personal statement, college preferences and more to make it easy for coaches to evaluate you as a recruit.
In most sports, your highlight or skills video is one of the most important parts of your recruiting profile. To ensure you’re showing off your best moves, NCSA has a video editing team to help you turn your raw video footage into a cohesive video that will capture the attention of college coaches.
Each week, you’ll receive a Coach Activity Report, which lists coaches who have viewed your profile and searched for your information, in addition to how well you match with every college on the report, which you can access at any time. Use this feature to proactively reach out to coaches who have shown interest in you and alert coaches that you are interested in their program.
Transform how you communicate with college programs thanks to the Message Center. Coach contact information is available through the NCSA Recruit Match platform, so you don’t have to waste time searching the internet for email addresses and phone numbers and can keep all your recruiting communication organized in one place. You can also create and manage custom email templates that can be edited with the help of your Recruiting Coach and sort your incoming college coach messages by camp invites, requests and more.
NCSA’s matching algorithm is the most sophisticated in the industry. Here’s how it works: You’ll first go through an evaluation with a recruiting coach who will help you determine the right fit in both division level and college type. Based on your preferences, recruiting evaluation, skill level and academics, we’ll match you with a list of colleges that offer the best fit. You can then start reaching out to those college coaches directly.
NCSA’s goal is to help student-athletes find a program where they can thrive and help college coaches fill roster spots with athletes that best fit their recruiting needs. Learn more about how our matching algorithm allows us to do just that in this video.
Match Analysis offers a visual snapshot of how you’d fit academically and athletically at a specific college. This feature makes it easier than ever to see if a school meets all of your requirements.
Search for schools by major, cost, location and more. There are thousands of schools across the country to choose from—so where do you start? With our College Search feature, you can easily filter through schools based on your specific athletic, academic and college fit criteria. Looking for Division 3 schools that are close to home and have less than 10,000 students? We can help you find them.
Check out this video for a demo of how to use the College Search to filter through athletic programs at schools across the country.
NCSA Favorites is your personalized list of target schools. Build your target list by finding teams that are recruiting your position or event. Then, search online to see if your size, skills and speed are comparable to athletes on those rosters. If your roster research checks out, and it feels like a good fit for you, select yes to Favorite a school.
NCSA Recruiting Profiles have the ability to “favorite” programs and save them to your digital list of target schools. Learn more about this feature in this video.
Find all your notifications in one place. Keep up with profile views, coach follows, roster openings and unread messages, at home and on the go.
One of the biggest challenges for student-athletes is keeping track of where they are in the recruiting process for each school on their target list. The My Progress tab presents cards that create a visual “to-do” list for each college that will help you build connections with the coach and the program. You can quickly see what steps you’ve taken and what still needs to be done.
