Should Parents Talk To College Coaches?

12 min read

Parents can (and should) talk to college coaches during the recruiting process, but when is it appropriate and when is it not? Get the answers –

• All the communication should come from the student-athlete. They should be the one communicating with coaches. Parent’s should not reach out to a coach on behalf of their child.

• Parents can brainstorm questions to ask, proofread messages and jot down some talking points for a phone call or visit, but at the end of the day, emails, phone calls and most of the talking should be done by the potential recruit.
