Default College Recruiting

If your son is a rising 11th grader and is getting repeated camp invites from d1 schools is he just part of a big email blast or is there interest?

Also are things parents should know different by position? Striker vs Keeper etc?

If you have to pay for a camp visit / id camp you are not wanted. You need a campus visit or special invite.

I don't think, unless a D1 program is really hard up for players, they are going to send out those types of invitations to a massive amount of players. Chances are your son may have been ID'd somewhere along the way most likely at a tournament.

I would suggest he make a list of 8-10 schools he'd like to visit and go to their ID Camps. As he gets older, that list can be cut to other schools depending on different factors.

8-10 ID camps at $450-600 each, possibly with airfare added on, good luck with that.

Many are small (75-100) and under $350. But there is travel too. Are keepers in big demand?
How can you really tell if there is a chance for some minutes as a freshman?
