When it comes to your scholarship expectations, it's critical that you know where your athlete's sport falls in the mix.  There are two types of athletic scholarships.

We'll explore these two types in this episodes.

Not all scholarships, of course, are full rides.  In fact, in some sports, full rides are rare.  Why is that?  Not only because of limited dollars, but because of the NCAA limits on those sports.  For instance, no matter which school it is, every D1 baseball program is limited to 11.7 scholarships.

In this episode, Jon Fugler goes into detail about the two types of scholarships and where your athlete fits in.

Jon also answers listener questions.

Just like when an athlete competes, it's easy to get knocked off your game plan when it comes to pursuing an athletic scholarship.

"I had a totally different episode planned until an hour before recording time," says host Jon Fugler.  "It hit me real hard that I needed to record THIS episode first."

And THIS episode is all about preventing derailment and destruction in the scholarship pursuit.

Jon offers five things you need to do to make sure you get to your family's goal: an athletic scholarship.  These five things will be easy to remember and apply right away.

If you fall into a ditch, you may not be able to get out.  By sticking with these  five things, you'll stay on the road and on track.  You'll get to your destination.

All these things will make perfect sense, starting with the first one: "Listen to Success."  Jon draws on a Dave Ramsey illustration to drive the point home. 

You'll be entertained, too, as Jon shares his own sports woes these days.

Athletic talent is a given when comes to getting recruited.  College coaches are looking for the best athletes to reward with scholarships.

But there are other factors often overlooked by parents and athletes, but high on the priority list for college coaches.

In this episode, Jon Fugler nails down three of the top characteristics of a recruited athlete.  Talent alone won't get you a scholarship.  Coaches have a number of factors they are considering.

Discover three big ones with Jon Fugler as he presents them clearly.

What you don't know could hurt you.  That''s the case with the rules the NCAA lays down for recruiting.  We often hear about NCAA violations that cost programs scholarship money, forfeitures and ineligibility.

As a parent of a student-athlete, or a student-athlete yourself, you should be familiar with key NCAA rules and guidelines.

In this episode, recruiting expert Jon Fugler explains, in clear language, the most important ones.  He also explains the Recruiting Calendar and the National Letter of Intent.

While the burden for recruiting within the rules falls on the coaches, you need to know the rules so you can understand coaches' behaviors. 

Why hasn't the coach called or written?  Why has he or she not come to see my son or daughter compete?  These are a couple questions that are answered when you're familiar with the NCAA rules that coaches live by.
