Parents and athletes come to us regularly looking for scholarship advice. I was in their shoes over a decade ago, so I understand how they feel and how you may feel.

Here are three things you can do to make sure you’ve got the best shot at an athletic scholarship.

1. Seek schools that fit your athletic ability. The objective is to find a good match once the process is done. So, start by compiling a list of programs where you feel you can compete.

2. Approach the coaches first. Don’t wait for them to find you. They may never discover you if you wait. Believe me, coaches are grateful when you market yourself to them.

3. Do something now. Don’t spend the next week researching and reading. Get started in the recruiting process. Move forward. You can learn along the way, but so many athletes and parents keep doing research without taking action. You must do both.
