NCSA Reviews for Swimming from Athletes and Parents

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“Just in the short amount of time that we have been involved, we have learned so much. Trying to do all of the research on your own is extremely difficult, especially when you don't have any idea where your abilities and grades match up. Your staff makes a person feel like they really want you to succeed.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Swimming
“I feel that NCSA has allowed us to have access to the college swim coaches that my daughter is interested in. However, there has been lots of turnover in our NCSA advisor/coach and this has been somewhat frustrating. My daughter is now entering her senior year so we will see if joining NCSA has paid off within the next few months.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“NCSA has help me realize that the passion I feel for swimming can be carried over to a college level. I have shared this amazing organization with peers who are, like me, passionate about their sport. The guidance this site provides is easy to follow. The network is amazing. Every time I see that a college coach is looking at my profile makes my dream more real. I'm so excited to be noticed and know that others share my passion.”

“We spoke to Kate today. She was so kind and very helpful. She answered a lot of unanswered questions and helped us navigate around to learn new things in the NCSA profile page. Her professionalism and expertise made us feel comfortable and supportive. We know we can contact her with any concerns we may have.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Swimming
“NCSA really cares about the well-being of their athletes, and it shows. You guys are constantly checking in to see how we're doing and are dedicated to make us successful. It's amazing to see the results (coach views, coach emails, etc.) I would definitely recommend you to a fellow aspiring college athlete!”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Swimming
“We just signed up about 5 or so months ago and I like the continuous contact. We receive various emails informing us about the process. Coach Kate contacted us the other day and we arranged a time where we all sat around the speaker phone and discussed my daughter Rachel's progress. I liked that. NCSA stays in touch and keeps us informed. That's the reason I gave you a 10.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Swimming
“It's a great resource specially like our family who aren't familiar with college in United States and have no idea of what recruiting is like. It is so helpful that you get good idea of how the system works for recruiting.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Swimming
“I love how easy everything is. We have been communicating with several DIII coaches already and Emily has 13 coaches following her as a sophomore. That makes us feel great. All the resources we need to find the right fit for Emily you have made available right at our fingertips.  you can't ask for more than that!”

Class of 2020 – Parent – Swimming
“I gave you this score because NCSA is a great tool to use for connecting with college coaches. The more committed you are to use the tool you will benefit more out of it. Especially if you are a  high-level athlete, I would recommend it.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“Having a coach to help you out in the recruiting process is a huge help. Sometimes one can overlook the impact or the help that an NCSA coach can make, but it truly is big. They can help you out with any questions in depth and guide you in regard to which schools to apply and the difference between school sizes, locations, etc.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“The NCSA is helping my family and I to get comfortable with the entire recruiting process. We may have only joined a few weeks ago but we already feel amazing about this whole process. Personally, I believe that the NCSA is for sure going to help me find the college of my dreams, and I without a doubt recommend the NCSA to any of my teammates.” 

Class of 2021 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“NCSA really helps narrow down the college commitment process and really walks you through step by step. NCSA also answers all the questions about the process and when to really start because many people don’t know when or how to start, and NCSA helps with all of this.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Swimming
“The college process is so overwhelming, and Coach Kate helps alleviate that "anxious" feeling with her knowledge, direction and personal touch that she offers to Sydney and myself. So very thankful for Coach Kate and NCSA for being with is on this journey!” 

Class of 2020 – Parent ­– Swimming
“NCSA has been a great tool to monitor the recruiting process. Your staff is very helpful and offer sound advice. Chris was great. He helped walk us through the Official or Not Official visit dilemma, when multiple schools are interested in our daughter. Very happy with the service.”

“NCSA is lives up to what they promise student-athletes and their parents: a chance to find and communicate with colleges.

Due to their helpfulness it is likely that I will recommend NCSA to a fellow friend or parent who is or has a student athlete.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Swimming

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“As I have just started with you guys about a month ago, I can't give too clear a score. However, from my experience so far, NCSA has been extremely accommodating and helpful. You can tell the people there really want to help you. I love the system and I look forward to my future experiences with NCSA!” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Swimming
“Because of the "right amount" of contact by NCSA's team! Also, there wasn't a "hard sell" to sign up for one of the memberships. We really appreciated being able to come to a decision on our own time and not being pushed into a quick decision! Thank you for that!” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Swimming
“Well, there are many! "No pressure" sales approach. Phone call appointments promptly kept. A warm "welcome-to-the-family" vibe from our contacts thus far. As my daughter is only a Freshman, I get the feeling she will be in good hands throughout her high school recruiting years!”

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“I ranked it a 9 because I feel like this website is really helpful as it allows athletes to connect with college coaches. I would especially recommend this to my freshman friends because it is never too early to start thinking about whether or not you're going to continue swimming in college and where you would like to continue this journey.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“I know some friends that are swimmers and I think that they could benefit from this since NCSA makes it so easy for colleges to notice you. You can see who follows and see how frequent they view you. For example, I already have a follower from Purdue University which is unbelievable since I had only just made my account just recently.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Swimming
“We are finding that the attention by your staff - specifically Steve P. - has been phenomenal.    We are just beginning to work with our daughter's personal recruiting coach and after one phone call and e-mail are very impressed by her as well. Looking forward to this process! Thank you -  Mary B.”

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“I honestly feel like NCSA is a very useful tool that is helping me have a much idea in regard to what I need to do in order to be much more efficient at getting noticed by colleges that would benefit me. Without NCSA's help I wouldn't have a solid idea as to what I should do to be able to earn scholarships in athletics and how to easily contact coaches of colleges I would like to go to.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Swimming
“NCSA has been very helpful locating schools that would be a good match for Caitlin. With so many out there it would be difficult to narrow down our search without NCSA. Also like the workshops and the ability to speak with Katie one on one. She answers all our questions and guides Us on how to reach out to coaches/schools.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“NSCA makes the recruiting process so much easier and helps immensely! Going into this process, I wasn’t sure what I was doing and now I feel ready to contact coaches and visit colleges! Everyone is so kind and provides tons of information.” 

Class of 2022 – Parent – Swimming
“You're there when we need you, even on weekends when we might have some time to work on it. You are walking us through the process making it less stressful to go through the whole process.  Thank you.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“This app is very helpful because it allows coaches to see how well you are doing without actually watching you, because sometimes the travel for a coach to watch the athlete is too far. This also provides all of the emails for the coaches that you would need to contact in the recruiting process. I would not be known by college coaches if it wasn't for NCSA.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“NCSA has really helped me to get to know colleges and coaches better. This is an easier way for me to find college coach emails and for us to get to know each other. It also provides easy access to my academic and athletic accomplishments for coaches to look at.”

Class of 2020 – Parent – Swimming
“We have only been with NCSA a very short time, yet we feel valued. We have had multiple contacts within NCSA, and all reassured my daughter that they are here to help her find the right academic and athletic fit. From the initial interactions we have had, we sincerely believe their promises will come to fruition.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“This program definitely helps those interested in playing sports in college. Whether it be swimming or baseball they provide you with the opportunities and the tools needed to be a success college athlete. They are super helpful in the process and assure you throughout the way that there is a place for everyone.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Swimming
“The various courses and webinars offered by NCSA has helped us gain an understanding of the recruiting process and proper steps to get noticed. The profile and highlight video have helped coaches learn about our daughter and allow them to get in touch with her. Hopefully she will have several offers by the time she competes as a senior in high school. She is currently in her junior year.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Swimming
“Everyone I have talked with has been very helpful and has been very nice. They know I am behind in the process and they are helping me to speed up the process to get where I should be right now. They really do a good job of working with me.”
