Be educated about the athletic collegiate recruiting process
NCADA Takes Steps to Assist Families with Recruiting Education
The North Carolina Athletic Directors Association (NCADA) is proud to provide a new nonprofit service designed to assist families in being properly educated about the athletic collegiate recruiting process.
The Recruiting Education Foundation Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit venture, is now providing NCADA with recruiting webinars for high school athletes and their families in the state of North Carolina. The webinar is available at no cost, and can be accessed through the homepage of www.ncada.info.
NCADA Executive Director Jerry McGee said of the webinar launch, "All too often our families are being tempted to spend money in order to have their child recruited. NCADA feels families should listen to our recruiting webinar prior to allocating any sum of money into recruiting. NCADA feels this service will do a long way in properly educating families about the recruiting process and assist them in making proper decisions about the recruiting process."

The NCADA Recruiting Webinar, which addresses these and other recruiting topics:
* Three rules of being a parent
* Scholarship myths and facts
* NAIA and JUCO education
* Scholarships, do they differ?
* The Name Game
* Negotiate/Cooperative Education
* Dangers of social networking/cell phones
* National Letter of Intent
* NCAA/NAIA Eligibility Centers
* Recruiting Services
* NCAA core course requirements
Jerry McGee went on to say, "There is a misunderstanding that the recruiting process doesn't start until a student's junior or senior year. Families and students who have aspirations of playing sports in college must begin to prepare themselves for the recruiting process starting in their freshman year of high school. NCADA highly recommends every parent of a student athlete dedicate 60 minutes of time to watch our webinar. We feel it will go a long way to get our kids and families on the right track with recruiting, and more importantly, academics."
