COLLEGE RECRUITING QUESTIONAIRES
What are college recruiting questionnaires?
Most college teams have online forms where a prospective student-athlete can fill in the requested information, which then gets sent to the college coach. These questionnaires can usually be found under the recruiting section of a school athletics website or within the individual team’s section.
Because recruiting questionnaires are an easy way for coaches to get your information, you might think that all you need to do is simply fill them out. However, college coaches might receive hundreds or even thousands of submissions a year. So, recruiting questionnaires are not the magic bullet for getting a coach’s attention. Instead, think of them as one of several steps you should take when reaching out to a college you are interested in.
Insider Tip: Just because you can complete a questionnaire doesn’t mean you should. All of the recruiting best practices apply, such as doing your research on a team, making sure the school is a good fit, and writing personalized introduction letters.
Things to do before filing out a questionnaire:
- Get Your Social Media in Order– We strongly suggest you create a new professional-sounding email address and clean up your social media accounts before sharing them with coaches.
- Get a NCAA ID Number – A NCAA ID number is a must for NCAA DI and DII schools in order for coaches track your eligibility with the NCAA.
- Links to Online Video – Whether you are posting video on YouTube or have a complete online profile, college coaches expect you to have high-quality game film and highlight films available online.
