the softball recruiting process

Want to play softball in college? Get in line. The recruiting process for softball athletes becomes more competitive every day, and the recruiting process starts earlier and earlier. There is much more to the process then showing up at a camp or playing in a showcase. The old saying "if you're good enough, they will find you", wasn't true then and isn't true now.

The chance to be recruited to play college sports comes only once in your lifetime. Only you can ensure that it's not wasted.
