“EXPOSURE” is the key for any student-athlete in the recruiting process. Remember the student-athlete is competing with thousands of other prospective student-athletes for a scholarship and a spot on the roster of a college football program. In this day and age, recruiting services, college football programs, and athletic companies are sponsoring or conducting camps everywhere all the time. These entities know how important exposure is for the athlete so they are capitalizing on it.
Instructional camps give coaches a chance to evaluate a prospective student-athlete’s versatility, footwork, speed, leadership skills, and attitude. There is only so much a coach can evaluate from a highlight film.
Division-1A Program Camps-
My best advice would be start to going to instructional camps as soon as you can. Start out by going to the big football program camps. Usually the Div. 1A big programs will have instructional camps and will allow smaller programs and lower division football coaches to work in their camps.
The benefits of these camps are:
* This is an awesome way to get exposure from many different schools.
* These camps make money for the hosting football program but, it also allows แนะนำเว็บ ufabet the program to bring the prospective student-athletes on their campus and a chance to evaluate them in person.
* Attending these camps, the student-athlete is able to experience different competition than they are used to competing against.
* The athlete gets a chance to witness other players that maybe better than them and expose their weaknesses. This will show the athlete where they need to improve their skills.
* The athlete will meet other student-athletes. This is good because when the student-athlete reports to the football program’s summer camp of the school they have chosen, they may know some of the players from the camps they previously attended while they were in high school.
Other Types of Camps-
Other camps would be, Nike Camps, UnderArmor, Adidas, and etc. These companies usually put on 7-7 camps that have a pretty big following. In my opinion, they’re limiting for a good evaluation of the prospective student-athlete. Depending on the type of offense a team runs, the quarterback, and the rules of the camp. But it is still good exposure.
