What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned in your recruiting journey so far? Let our podcast host know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You’ll never be finished learning, even when the process is over. That’s what recruiting expert Jon Fugler has experienced, and he has been at it for nearly 20 years.
In this episode, Jon shares the seven biggest lessons he has learned over the years. These lessons are shared to expand your knowledge base and help you take short-cuts to an athletic scholarship. Some lessons are for parents and some for athletes.
Jon’s first recruiting lesson is that “all coaches are different” and you must treat them that way. The recruit-me way may be steps you follow, but it cannot be viewed as a cookie cutter approach. Jon shares an example from his sons’ experience with one coach in particular. Knowing this truth will make a huge difference in the way you communicate with coaches and build the recruiting relationship.
Listen to all seven lessons and see which ones you can adapt to your recruiting approach.
Jon also shares lessons that other families have learned, and you may be able to relate to those.
And Jon now has a new freebie. It’s the first chapter of his new book The Athletic Scholarship Playbook: A Complete College Recruiting Roadmap for High School Athletes and Parents. Take the book for a test drive and see if it fits your needs.
