The Do's & Do Not's in Softball Recruiting
-Include your info on the first screen - list your name, where you are from, position
-Make sure you use high-quality video. You don't have to hire a professional videographer
-Keep it short (College coaches are very busy and prefer to watch 5 -1 minute videos than 1 -5 minute video)
-Feature All Your Skills (If you are a switch hitter, upload video of swings from both sides of the plate)
-Hitting (Show 5-7 swings from the open side (camera shooting from 1stbase side for righties and 3rd base side for lefties)
-Fielding (Show yourself taking two grounders right at you, two grounders to your forehand, two grounders to your backhand, and one grounder charging in on a slow roller)
-Outfielders (Show yourself making 3 throws to 3rd base and 3 throws to home plate from right field on a ball rolling or bouncing to you with no cutoff)
-Catchers (should show 2-3 clips of receiving the ball and throwing down to second from a view behind the catcher with the flight of the ball and 2-3 clips from the first base side focusing on the receiving and throwing mechanics)
Game Footage: you can include several game at bats and several defensive plays keeping the video between 1:30 - 2 minutes. In game film can be particularly helpful for catchers!
-Try and Stay away from Slo-Motion ( Overuse of Slow Mo can make you look even slower)
-Make a Lengthy Video (Coaches will NOT spend the time to watch a 10 min video)
-Sound is not important ( Try and stay away from adding music to your video)
-Spend a ton of money on a recruiting video (You can record High Quality off of an Iphone)
-College coaches don't have time for the crazy effects, transitions, or photos. Plain and simple, they want the clips
-Try to stay away from a shaky video (keep it steady or use a Tri-Pod if available)
-Show the same type of play over and over ( Coaches want to see versatility)
-Leave your profile Blank (Constantly update your page and videos so the coach can follow you throughout the season)
