A message from Coach Kelly Kennedy,

I will be hosting a Recruiting Seminar on Nov. 21 at the Akron General Wellness Center in Montrose at 7:30 pm. Would you please share this information with your athletes and ask the athletic director to share with the other athletes. I will address situations for all sports.

Athletic Scholarships are becoming more and more competitive every year. There are more athletes and more certified events for AAU/Club programs to choose to attend. I have seen many VERY GOOD players get shut out of a scholarship situation because they were not proactive. I have also helped a lot of players to get in a great program that fits them because we started early. I will share with you how to use your involvement in your AAU/ Club program to your advantage. Not everyone is a Division I player. There are Division II and NAIA schools with a lot of scholarship money. They can't get out to recruit as much as DI's. YOU NEED YOU TO BE PROACTIVE. I can teach you how to open the right doors.

The recruiting and Scholarship rules are changing continuously. The academic standards are going to be raised for athletes entering College August of 2015. This will directly effect the Sophomores and younger. I will share these changes with you.

Here is a basketball specific example of a recruiting rule change that will have a HUGE IMPACT: There are only 4 coaches on a Division I staff and fewer on Division II, III and NAIA staffs to get out to evaluate players. Previously there were 20 days in July for evaluation. NOW, the NCAA is reducing that to just 12 DAYS in JULY. This is the major evaluation period for athletes to be "seen live", which is how coaches want to make the final call to offer scholarships. With a more limited viewing window it is IMPERATIVE to get the ball rolling early.

IT IS SIMPLY NOT ENOUGH TO JUST PLAY ON A TRAVEL TEAM. It is important to take an active role in recruiting. I will show you how to do it. I will teach you the ins an outs of the process. Freshman are not too young to start this process.

I look forward to seeing you on Nov. 21. Email Kelly@RightFitSports to save your spot
