When it comes to telling a better story than other college hockey programs you’re competing with, I’d recommend you read through this training article – it has helped a lot of coaches better define how to sell their program to both prep, junior hockey and transfer prospects, as well as communicate how they are better than the prospect’s other choices. If you want to dig deeper into the whole ‘story’ aspect of recruiting, and why it matters so much to basketball recruits according to our research, click here for a list of our other research articles. This is an aspect of high-level recruiting that a lot of hockey programs skip as they go through the process, and the result is nearly always less consistent, more erratic recruiting.
Recruiting timelines – coupled with a fair but firm deadline, defined as far in advance as possible – is the #1 way to change the level of commitments you can get for your program. And yet, most coaches don’t implement this proven approach. This article features a real-time example of the this strategy playing out for a coach we work with as a client, and demonstrates the power of this approach.
Another aspect of successful recruiting that we just didn’t have time to get into is the all-important question asked by college hockey coaches we work with on a regular basis, “how do I know when to stop recruiting a prospect we’ve spent a lot of time investing time and money in?” In this episode of our podcast, College Recruiting Weekly, we walk through the process we’ve seen work best – and, teach coaches how to customize it to their timeline and hockey program’s priorities.
