Getting Started with NCSA
1. Create a free NCSA profile
It’s never too early to get your child started on their recruiting journey. Any student-athlete 13 years or older can fill out a free NCSA profile. A profile is like an online athletic resume that college coaches can view as they search for potential recruits.
If your child has already started a profile after attending an event, camp or combine, that’s great. You’re ahead of the game.
Don't forget: All student-athletes should let their parents know they have started a profile. Parents will play an important role in every recruiting journey.
2. Get an objective recruiting assessment
Our team of former college coaches and players will gauge your athletic potential, academic eligibility and desire to compete in college through an online assessment. This will allow you to see how you stack up against other potential recruits and help identify where to find your best college opportunities. With this free assessment, we can help set realistic expectations, identify areas of improvement and bring a real focus to your athlete’s recruiting efforts.
3. Start getting noticed by college coaches
There’s a short window of time when recruiting takes place, so it’s important to get the attention of college coaches as soon as possible. With your NCSA profile complete, you become easily searchable online by coaches looking to fill their rosters. Our coach activity report lets you see how many coaches have viewed your profile. Coaches can also follow your profile if they are interested and want to watch your progress.
That’s just the beginning. Learn more about what a typical recruiting experience is like with NCSA from start to finish.
NCSA offers a variety of recruiting programs to help meet your individual recruiting needs. In addition to a free profile, you can opt to upgrade to anyone one of NCSA's premium packages.
