Recruiting Skills Video – Skills Videos (Examples Below)
The videos that are outlined below were formulated by the founders of Strictly Softball Mila Ellsworth with the feedback of active Division I, II & III college coaches. That being said, our unique relationship to the current recruiting market gives us unparalleled insight into the exact demands and needs that a College Recruiting Video should meet.
Our goal is to create a skills taping day will be similar to any live showcase. To simulate the live situation, tape a limited number of repetitions allowing you to showcase your skills. From that set of limited repetitions, the best clips will be included in your skills video. Our process was designed to give a coach as accurate a representation of each player as possible. Finally, it is important to realize that the skills video is only the FIRST step in getting a player recruited.
Should only a high school junior get a fastpitch softball skills video done? Absolutely not!
College coaches are looking at recruits earlier and earlier. You have heard of the recent increase in verbal commitments by players as young as the 10th grade. Coaches want to see video of the up and coming softball players as much if not more that the current junior class. Recruiting process should begin in freshman year in high school
There are thousands of girls playing softball who want to be seen by college coaches – what is going to make them see you?
