RecruitPKB: Reply to the Coaches

So much of the recruiting process is a two way street with the recruits and coaches.

It amazes me how many times I hear players get frustrated because a coach never replies back, yet when a coach at a school they’re not interested in emails them, they won’t reply to them either!

I always try to remind my players that it’s a two way street. Yes, the coaches are the adults and have more experience in the recruiting world but as my last post stated, they’re human too.

They get frustrated when they email a player and never get a response.

Even if you don’t like the response you may get from a coach that says they’re not interested, it’s always better than getting nothing at all.

So if a coach sends you an email and you’re 100% not interested then just let them know you don’t think it’s a good fit for what you are looking at with golf and school.

If you don’t know much about the school or program, take the time to do some research and reply back to ask the coach some questions. You never know what you may find out.

Never eliminate options if you don’t have some good solid interest from your top choices but don’t ignore emails from coaches just because you aren’t interested or haven’t heard of the school.

It takes less than 2 minutes to write a polite response.

I had a player not interested in a program but I encouraged her to at least give the coach a nice response back to say why, a few months later that coach ended up at a better program and because the player had shown some respect and courtesy that coach reached out to her and ended up offering her a scholarship to play at an ACC/SEC program.
