Skills Videos, an important recruiting tool
If you are in high school and have any desire to play at the Next Level it is imperative that you have a skills video that reflects your softball skills and will entice a college coach to come watch you play this summer. I am constantly receiving email from services that will provide a professional video for a fee ranging from $200 up to $500. Please do not get paralyzed by the pressure of putting a professional video together. It doesn't require professional services with music and graphics to get the attention of college coach. It should demonstrate your athleticism and skill in less than 3-4 minutes, a little longer
if you are a pitcher.
Items to include in a skills video
Remember, if your skills do not reflect college level skill, don't make the video! Many players and families say "I need to make a video to send to colleges" but their skills are not developed enough to grab the attention of a college coach. Don't waste your time or money or the college coaches time with a video of an unprepared player. I have spoken with so many college coaches who have said, "if the player can't throw or catch I don't have time to teach them." You need to be honest with yourself or get honest advice if you are prepared to present your skills to a college coach. Work at your weaknesses and get to the point where your video will show you demonstrating college level skills or
Once the video is completed make sure you post it on "YouTube" and provide a link to the video in all of your correspondence to college coaches.
