A few articles/videos are being shared in the coaching community regarding recruiting high school athletes. Families with athletes looking to compete in college are encouraged to take a few minutes to look over these articles/videos and have an open dialogue about their messages. Remember that the majority of questions that college coaches ask club coaches about potential recruits do not involve splits or race strategy.
