Coach Recruiting Interview

What do you look for in a recruit? What type of player best fits your program?

The first thing I look for is the academic interest. Since SCAD is such an academically specific school we can't just take anyone on our roster. If a recruit isn't 100% sure that she wants to pursue a creative field, this is not the school for her.

What is the best way for players to get on your recruiting radar?

The best thing an athlete can do is reach out to me through email and fill out our recruit profile available on our website. I prefer to hear from the athletes themselves.

What areas of player development should recruits be focused on?

Team play. I see some many recruits who want to be the stars of their team but in reality, when you go to college you are going to be surrounded by 25 other girls who were also the stars, you need to know how to compliment others playing style and to have an impact even if you aren't the player scoring.

What common recruiting mistakes should players and parents avoid?

Not following up with coaches. If you are interested in a school let them know, if you haven't heard from them in a while, reach out. We have hundreds of recruits and we do are best to stay in touch with each individually but sometimes we don't get to touch base for a bit and if we aren't hearing from you either we assume you are no longer interested.

What should a recruit include in a message to you that will draw your attention?

Talking about why they are interested in our school specifically. I get a lot of blanket emails that are clearly sent to multiple coaches- when you get so many emails its easy to over look the ones that don't talk about why they would be a good fit for SCAD particularly.
