While it is true that for a select few extremely talented young athletes future D1 college athletic scholarships will pour in unsolicited, for many more athletes the scholarship dollars they will receive will come as a result of being proactive and working hard to get noticed by college coaches. It is for this reason that I strongly recommend that parents help their son or daughter stay on top of doing self-marketing — even if it doesn’t result in a D1 scholarship, it could lead to college athletic opportunities (i.e. DIII) that might not have been awarded otherwise.
