The NCSA Experience
NCSA is the world’s largest and most successful collegiate athletic recruiting network because our focus has always been on finding the best college options for our student-athletes. That means a school that can launch a lifetime of success by being a good athletic and academic fit.
What sets NCSA apart is our comprehensive approach that addresses every phase of the recruiting process. We understand that while each recruiting journey is unique, they all benefit from a systematic approach or process to hit key milestones and reach the ultimate goal of becoming the next college student-athlete.
Every NCSA member can expect to play a very active role in their recruiting process. And, like every sport, recruiting demands the same level of commitment, patient, persistence and competitive spirit. The following briefly outlines the typical recruiting journey with NCSA.

It’s important to note that not every student-athlete will complete the recruiting process or receive an offer. The recruiting journey is about discovery, and some student-athletes discover their passion for their sport may not be as strong as their passion for a chosen major, so they decide to put academics first. Others may find a school they love and are willing to walk on rather than sign with a college that’s extending an offer but just isn’t as good a fit.
The bottom line is that every recruiting journey is truly different, but, with NCSA, you will have access to the right people, the right technology and the right network to help your family make one of the most important decisions for your student-athlete.
