Preparing for an unofficial visit to a college coach.

If a coach is not eager to host a student athlete, they’re probably not interested in recruiting that athlete. Get the hint; spend your recruiting time and money elsewhere.

Think of an “unofficial” as a preliminary job interview. Do not go unprepared.  If you want a scholarship offer from a school, prepare some questions about the direction of the athletic program in regards to you, or about the school’s academic reputation.  Let the coach see that you’re responsible person and concerned about your future.  If you don’t know what questions to ask see our “Questions to ask coaches” links on our site. Pick and chose from the ones listed.

Connecting with the college coaching staff before an unofficial visit is very important. The purpose of an unofficial visit is to allow the athlete to build a relationship with the coaches while experience campus life at that college.
