Navigating recruiting during the COVID-19 pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic has impacted the college recruiting process in multiple ways across all NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA division levels. Some of these changes include a ban on in-person recruiting through April 15, 2021 for NCAA D1 programs and eligibility relief for current college athletes.
Over the past year, recruits have had to find new, creative ways to showcase their coachability and character during the recruiting dead period, one of which is creating skills video while competitions are postponed/canceled.
As student-athletes and their families continue to navigate the changing recruiting landscape, we encourage you to check out a special episode of NCSA Live featuring clinical psychologist Rebecca Kennedy, who has a wealth of insights and coping mechanisms for parents of student-athletes.
