Birch Prospects has worked with over 400 families since 2012. Louis Birch has come up with these suggestions to help the recruiting process be as successful as possible to get the best possible scholarship for student-athletes:
GPA/SAT Scores - provide an accurate GPA and SAT scores for the recruiting personnel.
Video - provide me with the most recent video to capture your skill set accurately. Game and a workout combination is best- Louis will edit it! Student-athletes can approach their coaches to set up times for video to be filmed and forwarded to me. Birch Prospects will then market this video to coaches/programs that you are interested in and schools that we believe to be a great fit!
Coach Response - When you receive an email from a school always respond immediately with something like this... "Coach Smith I am flattered to hear from your program- thank you! I am interested in learning more about your school and look forward to developing a relationship as I look for the best possible fit. Bonus points...drop a line mentioning something specific about their program!! As an underclassmen, schools are restricted in what they can communicate - you will see camp invites & questionnaires...it may seem generic but that is the rule. Birch Prospects can help facilitate deeper dialogue with coaches with phone calls initiated by you/us.
Research - Birch Prospects will help you find schools that fit your needs academically, athletically and culturally! We will help you find best program for you!
Performance - Be the best student and athlete that you can be! Great things will happen for you!!
