NCSA Reviews for Track and Field from Athletes and Parents

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete –Track
“It has been very helpful in letting me know what to strive for and what to put out on my profile so far.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Track
“I have been with NCSA for less than a year, so I have not experienced the full benefits of NCSA yet. From the information and tools, I have received so far, it has been a very helpful.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Track
“NCSA has really given me a great opportunity to chase my dreams. The program gives me the head start I need to become the next college student athlete.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Track
“The experience has been very eye opening in a short amount of time. I have learned so much and the best part is, I am just getting started. NCSA makes it so much easier on me and my family in the recruiting process. I know that they will always be there for me in any questions I will have.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Track
“People are always on standby and there for you to answer any questions you have or help you in any way you need. NCSA also helps you connect with people and coaches from all over in a very simple way.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Track
“The system is set up well and the administrators designed it to be user friendly. The coaches are always assisting and giving kids the push, they need to keep the process going and ultimately to be successful getting recruited. The system is designed to look under nearly every rock to find the perfect college fit for the high school athlete.” 

Class of 2017  – Student-Athlete – Track
“You guys have helped a lot and give tons of effort and time to help me achieve my goal of being a college athlete. NCSA makes the whole recruiting process ten times easier.”

Class of 2021  – Student-Athlete –Track
“Because I have been contacted by perspective schools and programs I am interested in attending, if it wasn't for NCSA and only had left up to my current coaches this may not have ever happened.  It has given me realistic goals & avenues to pursue them for my future.” 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete –Track
“I think my son has been recognized by colleges more than not having this program. He would've not been seen by this many colleges. I as a parent didn't know what to do and have learned a lot from this program.” 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
“NCSA gives you a better visual of the effort you must give to the recruiting process. It gives you tips and classes to help you show the best appearance to college coaches and helps find the right college for both academic and college sport needs.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Track

“I can't say enough about the hard work put in by the NCSA staff. Every time we call someone is readily available. We were nervous about sending out our first email to a coach and a staff member stayed on the phone, guiding and giving recommendations while I typed it up. Our son is getting many notices from colleges and receiving information about camps in addition to being followed by quite a few coaches. Being from a small town this is just the boost we need. I would definitely recommend NCSA!” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Track
“We have had quite a bit of interest from coaches that we probably would not have because we live in a small town. We have been on college visits connected through my son’s NCSA profile. NCSA staff have always been kind and forthcoming and more than willing to help via a quick phone chat, a phone conference or email.”

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete –Track
“NCSA has helped me very much with things such as getting myself noticed by college coaches, emailing them, and researching universities that best fit me academically and athletically. The drills have also helped me by making me aware of all of the rules and important things I need to know about the recruiting process that I never knew before. I am very thankful for NCSA.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Track
“I really like what this program is about. Educating myself on things like the recruiting process, financial aid, and how to interact with coaches has been rather a smooth process. The website is easy to navigate through and I love the personal attention my son receives. Thank you, NCSA!” 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
“I've been able to contact every college I want to attend. All the coaches have gotten back to me. I've talked on the phone to many coaches. Due to your lessons, guides, and tips I have been able to create good relationships with coaches who are looking to recruit me. Even some universities are contacting me first. This is a great program. Best app ever!! 10/10 would recommend.” 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
“I would rate NCSA's ability in this respect at an 8 because I have not yet been seriously requested by a coach yet, but I have definitely seen more feedback from coaches after only two weeks and am now more confident that I will end up running in college because of this new leeway that I have.” 

Class of 2020  – Student-Athlete – Track
“The "University" classes that teach student athletes the best way to contact coaches and take charge of their recruiting efforts are amazing. There is a lot of knowledge on do's and don'ts to be the most effective. The resources available for contacting coaches and even to consider schools that may have not been on your radar before is outstanding.” 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track

Class of 2020  – Student-Athlete – Track
“NCSA has been an immense help to me so far. Everyone I’ve spoken to and worked with has been very communicative, knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. They are always on top of things and help you build the best profile for colleges to see. It’s been a great experience working with NCSA for me.” 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete –Track
“I like your app and would be likely to recommend it to a friend. Sometimes some of your information and videos are redundant. Would like more info specifically geared towards endurance training for runners, nutrition, recovery from injuries, and that type of info. Thank you for helping me to contact college coaches. That is very helpful.” 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
“I gave a 10 because, NCSA is a determined organization that has gotten me more out there to colleges and I've gotten some letters from colleges asking me to run for them. I've already recommended NCSA to a big portion of my team and the time and effort is worth it.” 

Class of 2019  – Parent – Track
“I recommend to anyone who will listen. NCSA can help in getting my daughter a scholarship to achieve her academic goals as well as letting her do what she loves, run. The return on investment should prove to look really nice. Better than my 401K.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Track
“Good and easy access to a wealth of valuable information, particularly the college search and email addresses. Presume you want to hear about the cons to improve the site so here goes: The roster openings seem dated and/or not as robust as expected. The "top matches" part seems lacking since we've been waiting for his "top" matches for quite a while. The email functionality needs some tweaking so that replies capture the thread rather than starting fresh each time.”  

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
“I would recommend NCSA to my friends who want to become college athletes because I feel like NCSA has helped a lot of people do that and I feel like they can do the same to us. I'm nowhere near done with my application thing because I still haven't gotten and finished my semester. I still have to do an extracurricular class for college with doesn't finish till track season starts in March.” 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
“All of the people that I work with and talk to on my way to getting recruited, such as my coach, is incredible. They treat you like an adult and understand that you are serious about moving on to the next level once you graduate high school. They work with you and help you with talking to coaches of the colleges you want to attend! It's truly been an amazing experience working with NCSA, when I talk to my coach, I feel like I'm the only person they have to work with, the care they provide is absolutely astounding and I love it.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Track
“The recruitment process is well thought out and provides ample information for any prospective student. Naturally it is geared towards US based students as opposed to international students (which I am assuming are in the minority). We are based in Cape Town, South Africa and our needs differ. So, we suggest a separate/additional NCSA module to cater for international students would be useful.  Part of this would be some sort of assistance in linking to educational institutions in each international territory where prospective students could get info about SATS and where they could take the exams. Also, many international students have not visited the US which makes the college selection process more difficult. It would be good to have links to information videos for each college.” 

Class of 2020  – Parent – Track
“Communication is at the highest level from NCSA. We are early in the process and have a lot of information to both process and attend to.  One negative is that we are based in Cape Town South Africa and perhaps need more time to assess the various colleges and honw in on those that we feel are suitable. We are finding the time to do so with Oliver, but this is tough in between his very busy school and sporting timetable. As we are also both working long hours this isn't taking time.”  

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
“NCSA is really good at getting an athlete's name out in the open. The more your name is known, the more colleges look at you. They also educate you on how to properly communicate with college coaches and connect with them. Most recruiting sites aren't as advanced as NCSA proves to be, and you'd be surprised how many college coaches actually use this site.” 

Class of 2017 – Parent – Track
“The process before the visit was great. I had the opportunity to speak with one of the recruiters from NCSA about 3 weeks before the visit. Then I asked if they could call my son and interview him as if they were the scout at the college. I wanted a third party to interview him. It was extremely helpful and prepared him for the visit. Thank you for the support.” 

Class of 2017  – Student-Athlete –Track
“The NCSA provides a caring warm family feeling to them. They are always willing to help when an athlete like myself is in need. I am proud to be a part of this!”

Class of 2019  – Parent –Track
“We have been truly impressed with how sincere and devoted each person has been on the start of our journey. Coming from a small area where many talented athletes are not given a chance in college due to financial reasons or lack of resources, it means a lot to us for the guidance we are receiving.” 

Class of 2019  – Parent – Track
“I can't think of a more comprehensive tool than NCSA. The website offers tremendous functionality, and I feel as if we can always pick up the phone and get help from someone at NCSA or fire off an email and get a quick, clear response.” 

Class of 2019  – Parent –Track
“To this point, the staff we have interacted with have been efficient, pleasant, and informative.  Knowing that there is a team of people working with him has given our son more confidence in his pursuit of excellence at competitions... and as far as I'm concerned, it has made him more accountable.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Track
“NCSA is a great tool and it has connected me to many schools starting from D1 to NAIA. I'm glad I picked this recruiting site over the other ones.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent –Track
“I have recommended NCSA to a couple of families on my son's track team that will be starting the recruiting process soon! Not sure if they have enrolled but definitely have tried to get some families to try the program out.” 

Class of 2019  – Parent – Track
“The care, support and friendship we are receiving is amazing! You guys are very tentative to Sawyers needs and seem to be going above and beyond to make all of this happen for her.”

Class of 2020  – Student-Athlete – Track
“The primary reason is because the NCSA staff is really nice, helping, and welcoming. I was really nervous talking on the phone, but they made me feel really comfortable. If I have any struggles, I know I can go to you to help me.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Track
“Easy access to coaches via email is AMAZING and saves a ton of time! The categorization of the colleges and universities is also very well done. My only piece of construction criticism would be to increase your server capacity to allow longer highlight videos. Track season can have numerous great moments and I'd double the length available.” 

Class of 2020  Parent – Track
We have been very impressed so far with all of the services offered, excellent customer service, great follow-up, and lots of communication. We were very pleasantly surprised at how many coaches have already looked at our son's profile in just the first week. 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
Allison was so helpful!! The whole staff is very friendly and supportive, and I like how the program gives me the opportunity to contact coaches personally!

Class of 2019 – Parent – Track
“The program really does an excellent job of delivering the contact information of all the coaches in the country. This makes it easy to reach out and the tools help to monitor the coach’s response to your efforts. The support of the coaches helps to guide the young athletes on what their next steps should be. This guidance, if delivered from a parent, may not have as much weight. Thank you.” 

Class of 2017  – Parent – Track
“We have had two sons recruited by colleges because of their profiles and use of NCSA Recruiting website. All recruiters were very professional and personable, always willing to help, very patient, always on time when a call was scheduled, and very efficient. Special thanks to Alison Vincent - she was awesome in both cases!” 

Class of 2019  – Parent – Track
“Excellent program. It has helped my daughter so much. She's received a ton of exposure and been able to narrow her school choices. She was accepted into a school before her senior year started. It's been a great experience for us.” 

Class of 2019  – Parent – Track
“For those who really need help in finding a college at their best fit or even find a scholarship. There are many people out there who have excellent grades and are great in their sport but are really clueless on finding a college. NCSA can help out with this situation.”

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
“Before I came to NCSA I had no idea what I was going to do about college and how I was going to be able to plan and I didn’t have a really clear path but since I joined NCSA I know more how I can reach my goals and aspirations and NCSA is such a big help for me.” 

Class of 2020  – Student-Athlete – Track
“NCSA has been very helpful in my recruiting process. I saw that my brother was able to get a tennis scholarship from a school that he never heard of but turned out to be a good match. Personally, I have been able to contact lots of coaches thanks to this website.” 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
“The reason why I gave you guys the score of 10 is because I feel like I've been welcomed into a family and a new environment. You guys have helped me so much with all the questions I've had and did a very nice job on explaining the website and all the things I need to know.” 

Class of 2019  – Student-Athlete – Track
“Because I love how NCSA is able to help kids like me get somewhere in life and I'm just very thankful that I have this app and that you all are helping me each step a take to lead me in the right path so I thank you all form the bottom of my heart for this.” 

Class of 2019  – Parent – Track
“The service we have received up to this point has been top notch and I have no doubt that with your help, my son will reach his ultimate goal of pole vaulting in college! Thank you, NCSA!” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Track
“We feel we are provided with the info we need to get Emily the best opportunities to be a college athlete. When my husband was at the pole vault summit with other parents, they were asking questions that we already had the answers to due to our involvement with NCSA.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Track
“This is a great motivator for my son by seeing other options for schools. Everyone has been very nice and have taken great care of us all and answered all of our questions.”  

Class of 2020 – Parent –Track
“Having been a long-time user of LinkedIn, I consider NCSA to be along the same lines for matching athletes to colleges. It is the 21st century way of doing business. I have also talked to a few college coaches and this is the tool they use, so I see the value.”
