Champion Collegiate Recruiting

High school cross country runners have many options available to compete at the collegiate level which include the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).

In the highly competitive world of collegiate sports, you need to set yourself apart and give yourself the best opportunity to get the attention of college coaches. Many student-athletes are talented and have the ability to play sports in college yet are never discovered thus missing out on the opportunity of playing at the next level. Here at Champion Collegiate Recruiting, we partner with you and champion your recruiting cause by displaying to college coaches the recruitable player you are. 

Don't wait to get discovered - help them discover you!

Recruiting Tip
1. I’m looking for great stats first, both academic and athletic. Academic: I could have the next Olympian but if the academics aren’t there, they’re inadmissable into the school. Athletic: The ability is measured by the amount of experience that they have in the sport. A girl who’s been running for 6 years that hits the same times as the girl that’s only been running for one, not so impressive.
2. I’m looking for a love of the sport, someone who says or implies through their interview that they don’t know what they’d do if they couldn’t participate in track and field.
3. Respect of their high school coach’s time and effort. If an athlete comes in and completely denigrates their high school coach’s program or abilities, then I’m quickly turned off. High School coaches have it hard enough. They’re underpaid and asked to cover a lot of different events (particularly in track and field). It’s not too difficult for a recruit to tactfully say that their event wasn’t their coach’s strong point and that they feel that they could do better with more specific coaching. I always wonder what that athlete will do if they’re not too keen on my coaching once they’re at my school.
4. Size. Sometimes stats don’t tell the full story. If someone comes in with pretty good height and athletic build, I’ll take the chance on them.
