Too often, athletes and parents don’t know their “skill level” and find themselves at a school too advanced for their ability. This leads to the player not making the team and sometimes, at a school they no longer want to attend. That’s why PERFECT PLAYCEMENT suggests first focusing on non-playing factors that go into a college decision.
Your goal should be to find the perfect college where you gain a great education, experience AND then maybe have the opportunity to play. In the end, a player’s talent will almost always determine if they earn a roster spot – so it’s important to honestly self-assess your athletic ability so YOU can find that right college and proper program.
