Dianne Dailey, Women’s Golf Coach at Wake Forest. Writes about The Recruiting Process
JACKSONVILLE, Fl (December 3, 2009) – The fourth installment to the College Golf Tutorial currently running on http://www.tourresourcecenter.com was written by Dianne Dailey, the women’s golf coach at Wake Forest University. Dailey, whose team won the ACC Title last spring, focuses on the recruiting process.
Some of the tips Dailey offers in this tutorial entry are:
– Make sure your academic and athletic abilities match the program
– Make sure you understand the coach’s philosophy on coaching
– How much playing time you can expect
– Are there walk-on spots
– What are the requirements for admission
– Develop a relationship with the coach before you get to college
– Schedule an “unofficial” visit to the school
When seeking to play college sports, including college golf, the recruiting process can get very complicated and it’s important to understand all of the rules and regulations set forth by the NCAA, the sport’s governing body. Dailey goes on to note the importance of and defines such steps as registering with the NCAA Eligibility Clearinghouse; the difference between an “official” visit and an “unofficial” visit; what a Verbal Commitment entails; and she discusses the national Letter of Intent (NLI).
