    3 WAYS TO FILL OUT THE FAFSA STRESS-FREE AND MAYBE EVEN FUN

     

     

     

     

     

    Think about how stressful it can be to learn about the recruiting process overall, and about the college admissions process as you get closer to your senior year. Put that same learning curve, the same nerve to figure out a complex project with a definite due date, into a much smaller window — and you get the FAFSA.

    The window to complete the Federal Application for Student Aid opens on January 1. You can really submit your FAFSA at any time, but some families feel time crunch because depending on your school, state, and the type of aid, awards go out first come, first served. 

    Don’t stress. Seriously. This paperwork isn’t going to hurt you. Here are the top ways to fill out the FAFSA without stressing out about it.

    Don’t make mistakes filling out your FAFSA. Check out this post to avoid the most common mistakes.

    Know what you’re going to provide the FAFSA

    The FAFSA will ask your family to provide information in five categories:

    • about the student-athlete
    • about the student-athlete’s dependency on their parents (this is a legal question – does a parent or guardian list the student-athlete as a dependent on their tax returns?)
    • about the student-athlete’s parents or guardians
    • about the student-athlete’s financial background
    • about the schools that you want the FAFSA to send its findings directly to

    There are a bunch of advanced tips about the FAFSA from Chegg that can help you understand some of the more complicated arrangements some families might pursue to maximize their student aid.

    Did you know? For students who attend school for 4 years, the average incurred cost of loans is approximately $147,000.

    Know what you’ll need to have at hand to fill out the FAFSA

    In addition to the general bucket categories we listed above, you’re going to need to have a couple of things on hand that you probably don’t have memorized. Take some time to gather them together so you don’t feel like you’re searching through your lockbox and paperwork and losing your place in the FAFSA.

    • Social security numbers for the student-athlete and parents (if the student-athlete is filing as a dependent)
    • Driver’s license numbers
    • W2′s from the current and previous year
    • Tax returns from the previous year (since you probably haven’t done your 2015 taxes yet, the FAFSA lets you use the most recent one you have)
    • any additional benefits you might have: welfare, veteran’s, social security, investments, etc.
    • any additional financial figures that you might need to report: businesses, mortgages, etc.

    This will all help the FAFSA compute your Expected Family Contribution. Please remember that no matter your family’s income, it behooves you to complete a FAFSA.

    Did you know? Missing out on important financial aid information can mean paying as much as $90,000 extra.

    Know that this is an unavoidable step in the recruiting process – and make it fun.

    This might come from years trumpeting that my sport was other sports’ punishment, but I am a firm believer that there’s a silver lining in everything. Hill repeats? There’s going to be a downhill soon enough. Circuit workout? Get an awesome song playing and it’ll make the time fly by.

    Do the same when you fill out the FAFSA. Put on some music that everyone enjoys. (I know, I have a dad, too — that might be easier said than done.) Give yourself a reward when you’ve finished it – maybe the family can go out for pizza or an ice cream. 

    The FAFSA may seem like a chore, but it doesn’t have to be; after all, it’s time your family gets to spend, together.

    SAT ACT and Tofel Training 

    Guys throughout the season I have sent out constant reminders for you to prepare for SAT ACT and Tofel training.
    This does not happen by itself. These are standardized TEST that are door openers for the colleges. The better the test scores the more money available as well as college acceptance.

    There are many options available 
    !. Study on your own
    2. Attend formalized classes locally
    3. Online classes some free some cost

    For those in your last year it is critical for you to do this
    For those who are 2000’s it is also important that you study and prepare as well as taking the Test, so you have a yard stick of where you are at and what you need to do to advance your scores. 
    I have given the name of a commercial company that has been herald in the news and academic world to help students achieve some impressive results.
    The ball is in your court and you need to take action.

    IMPORTANT INFO RE SAT PREP COURSE

     

    21 NOV | BY FRANK SCARPACI

    Players and Parents
    I have a telephone conference with the SAT Prep Expert Company today 
    You have had over a month to discuss whether you will be taking it. They want a final count and you will need to register
    It DOES NOT MATTER TO ME WHAT OPTION YOU CHOSE. I simply want to make sure you are doing something or are satisfied with your scores. 
    This is a major company that has had enormous success nationwide. I caution those who try to do this on your own. It is risky and you need the highest scores possible. This company or the many others are experts in the SAT ACT test taking process.
    All Premier players see me today if interested 
    Elite guys see me Friday

    How To Email College Coaches

    How to Email College Coaches

     

     

    Sending an introductory email to a college coach can get your foot in the door with a program you’re interested in and give a coach the opportunity to conduct their initial evaluation of you. However, emailing college coaches as a means to get discovered isn’t as effective as it was five years ago. Coaches are getting hundreds—if not thousands—of emails from recruits. Simply sending an email isn’t enough to get a coach’s attention. You need to create clear, concise emails with attention-grabbing subject lines to give yourself a chance at the coach opening your email, reading it and responding.

    Before you start firing off emailing college coaches across the country, there are a few specific details you need to know first. Here’s a rundown of what we’ll be covering to help you better understand how to email college coaches:

    Quick Links

     

    What subject line is best when emailing college coaches?

    In talking about how to email college coaches, the subject line always comes up as one of the most critical pieces of the email. Without an eye-catching subject line, a coach won’t even open your perfectly crafted email.

    To get started on writing your subject line, there’s a few key pieces of information you need to include: Your grad year, your position, state (if you’re emailing a local coach) and a piece of information that’s unique about you. Do you have a lightning fast 40-yard dash time? Are you looking at an academic-focused school that will be impressed with your ACT score? If you compete in a sport in which club teams are really important, consider adding in your club team and/or the tournament you’ll be at next. Once you determine that, take a look at just a few examples of well-crafted subject lines:

    • 2020 Linebacker, 6’2” 220lbs, 4.6 40yd dash
    • 2018 LH Pitcher, 90 MPH FB, 33 ACT
    • 2021 from IL, 23.25-second 50 free
    • 2019 Center-mid, Premier Academy, MLK Tourney schedule attached
    • 2019 OPP, 9'8" APP, Premier VB Academy, video attached

    Here are a few general tips to consider when creating your subject line for emailing college coaches:

    • Think about what would be important to the coach. Generic subject lines like “football recruit” or “looking to play for you” and even “talented high school football prospect” are going to blend into the background of the coach’s inbox. Instead, do you have an interesting stat? Do you play a unique position? Is your height and weight important for your sport and position?
    • Keep your subject line to 50 characters or less. Coaches are on the go and probably read the majority of their emails on their phone. An extremely lengthy subject line will only get cut off, so you need to maximize the space you have.
    • Use numbers and stats in your subject line. We’ve hinted at this before, but including key stats in your subject line can really make an impact. Plus, numbers set your subject line apart from all the words crowding the coach’s inbox.

    What to say when emailing a college coach

    You’ve laid down the ground work, now it’s time to write the email! Think about your email like an inverted pyramid (https://www.getvero.com/resources/inverted-pyramid-method/). The top of the email is where you need to grab the coach’s attention. You can use a stat about the team that interested you or why you’d like to play for them. The next section is to give a little more information about yourself and to show the coach why you would be a good fit for their program. Here is the key information you want to be sure to include when emailing college coaches:

    • Your general information: Name, graduation year, high school and club name
    • Academics: GPA, test scores, if they would be important information for the coach you’re emailing
    • Athletics: sports specific stats and relevant measurables
    • Contact information: your phone number and email, as well as the contact information for your coaches 

    The last section should be giving them a specific next step, such as letting the coach know you will be giving them a call at a specific date and time or inviting them to come see you compete. Whatever you do, avoid sending mass, generic emails out to all the coaches you want to contact when emailing college coaches. The coach will know if you took the time to personalize your email, and it will make a difference. Coaches want to recruit players who are genuinely interested in their program—most don’t have the time and resources to recruit an athlete who is not likely to commit to their school.

    How to start an email to a college coach

    Similar to your subject line, your opening needs to be attention-grabbing. Depending on the type of school and the coach—here’s where your research comes into play—your opening will change. If you’re looking at academically-focused schools, lead with how impressed you are by their academic record when emailing the college coach. If you’re emailing a school with a winning record, point out that you’d love to be part of such a successful legacy. There are numerous reasons you would be emailing a college coach. Here are a few examples of ways to open an email:

    “I wanted to connect with you after speaking with Amber Brown, an athlete on your team. She told me about your coaching style and I believe that, based on your emphasis on work ethic and training, I would be a great fit for your program.”

    “I’ve been following your program for a while, and recently found an article about you that inspired me. I wanted to connect with you because I think that I would be a great addition to your team.”

    “In researching your program, I noticed that you will be graduating 5 seniors this year. I would love to help bridge the gap left by those departing seniors.”

    How much information do I need to include in my email to college coaches?

    This is an introductory email, so you don’t need to give the coach your whole history. Instead, tease a few key stats that you think this coach would be interested in knowing. Are you the ideal height and weight for your position? Include that. Do you have an outstanding GPA and test scores and you’re emailing an academically-focused coach? Include that. Also, make sure you include contact information for your current coaches: your club coach, high school coach, persona trainers, and anyone else that you have worked with for your sport. Then, link off to your NCSA recruiting profile where the coach can find your highlight video, all your stats and your personal statement.

    At the end of your email, tell the coach what you’re going to do next

    At the end, you want to specifically let the coach know what you’ll be doing next. If you’re planning on following up the email with a call, let them know to expect a call from you in the next few days. If you’d like to visit their campus, tell them you will give them a call to schedule a time to connect. You don’t need to use generic language like, “If you’re interested, feel free to call, email or text me.” If the coach is interested, they will contact you. Instead, tell them the next step you’re going to take, and then what they need to do in response.

    Insider tip: Turn on your “read receipt” function to see if a coach has opened our email. This feature is really helpful for athletes who are too young to be contacted by a coach yet. Read receipts will let you know if a coach has received and opened your email, so you can be sure to follow up accordingly. Learn more about how you can enable this feature for your next email.

    Sample email 2—Academic-focused email

    Dear Coach Johnson,

    I’m really impressed by your athletes’ dedication to both their athletics and academics. I noticed that you not only have a winning record, but you have set the school record for graduating the most athletes! As an aspiring college athlete, I am driven to excel both athletically and academically, and I believe I would be a great fit for your program.

    My name is John Smith and I’m a left-handed pitcher with an 85-MPH fastball. My biggest asset is that I’m a team player who focuses both on the field and in the classroom. I’m currently in the top 5% of my class with a 4.0 GPA and a 32 ACT. I’d like to major in prelaw, and I’ve been researching your school’s well-known prelaw program.

    You can view my profile for more information about my athletic and academic qualifications, as well as my skills video here: www.myNCSAprofile.org.

    I’m planning a trip to visit your campus this September, and I would love to meet you or another member of your coaching staff. Can you please let me know if you have any availability to meet with me? I will also be calling you tomorrow at 5p.m. CT to schedule a meeting!

    Thank you,

    Before you send, edit, edit, edit

    You’re so close to sending that email, but before you do, run spell check and re-read. A great way to catch strange wording or grammar errors is to read your email out loud. When you hear a phrase that sounds wrong, you’ll know you need to fix it. You can also cut and paste your email into Google Translate and listen for any errors.

    Still not sure if the email is error free? Have your parents take a look to double check. Make sure that you have included all your contact information, your call to action and a link to your full recruiting profile

     

    Insider tip: Try sending your email between 4-8 p.m., Tuesday-Sunday. Our data show that this is the best time to send an email to college coaches.

     

    Congratulations—now you know how to email college coaches, from the research to the subject line, from address to the email body! But your work is not done yet.

    College Application Hacks

    By Kyle Winters, Next College Student Athlete10/02/19

    Starting to apply for college can be an exciting time in a student’s life. Add in sports and things become just a tad bit trickier. You have to qualify academically and athletically if you want to be a college athlete. We all know there’s a hack for everything, but do you know any good hacks for college applications? NCSA shares a few below.

    COLLEGE APPLICATION HACKS THAT CAN HELP YOU GET ACCEPTED

    Most student-athletes who are aiming to get recruited and compete for a college roster spot are hyper-focused on improving their athletic skills to grab a college coach’s attention. However, all that effort may not help much if you can’t get accepted into the college you’re targeting. At many sports programs, if you can’t get admitted to the school based on your academic merits, your athletic background and the coach won’t be able to do much to help. Academics should be a top priority when you’re thinking about becoming a college athlete.

    That’s why it’s not only important to keep up your grades and study for standardized tests but to also put effort into the college application process. Start researching colleges early to identify the types of school that may be a right fit. NCSA encourages student-athletes to make a list of dream, target and safety schools. Once you have your list of schools, you want to make sure that you begin applying to them early because it could increase your chances of getting accepted.

    GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR ADMISSION ESSAY

    College admission essays can be a lot different than the essays you’ve written over the past years. They aren’t like the research papers you’re used to writing, instead they’re the perfect place to creatively tell the story of who you are and why a school should accept you. In fact, it may be creativity that increases college admission rates. Of course, creativity is subjective, so this really comes down to a few factors.

    First, college admissions professionals wade through giant stacks of essays, many of which are boring, typical and forgettable. You want to captivate your reader’s mind. They are reading thousands of applications so you want to pick a topic that isn’t common and display your personality as creatively as you can within your essay. Write about something that matters to you and don’t force something that isn’t you. And if you think your chance of getting in is a longshot, maybe it’s time to write something that will blow someone’s mind. After all, what do you have to lose? It’s a perfect chance to throw a Hail Mary.

    APPLYING EARLY CAN BOOST YOUR CHANCES

    The saying, “To be early is to be on time, to be on time is to be late, to be late is unacceptable” is extremely true when it comes to applying to college. Some admission experts argue that applying early during the early action period boosts your chances of getting in at certain schools. Some also say that this is a result of stronger candidates applying early, but CollegeVine argues that “data shows that applicants across the board have a higher chance of gaining acceptance when they apply through early decision, even when differences in candidate strength are accounted for.” Applying early can not only boost your chances of being accepted but it also gives you time to apply to more schools if you aren’t accepted into one of your dream schools. Be sure to apply to enough dream, target and safety schools.

    USE THE COMMON APPLICATION TO SAVE TIME

    Currently, 872 colleges use the Common Application (also known as the Common App) and it can help you save a lot of time throughout the application process. You can fill out general information like GPA and your extracurricular activates and use the Common App to apply to your dream, target and safety schools instead of filling out this information each time you apply. Common App is helpful because it makes sending out your admission essay very convenient. You’re able to keep everything organized and send your essay out to multiple colleges. And the best part about the Common App is that it’s free!

    APPLY WITH A SPECIFIC MAJOR TO IMPROVE ODDS

    Some majors have stricter admission requirements than others. For example, it can be easier to get admitted to the College of Arts and Sciences than it is to the College of Engineering. Assess where you are academically and what your potential career goals are before applying to schools. A hack to getting into your dream or target school may be to choose a major that has less restrictions and requirements. Some colleges have varying admission standards among their different schools. Your best bet? Do your research ahead of time and if you feel like you may have slim chances of getting into a reach school, this may be a strategy worth trying out.

    Player Development 1 Step At A Time

    Coaches often get it wrong "They tell players they will make you 25% better if you play for them"  The Eels try to make our players 1% better every  time they hit the ice  - practice  every game Do the math that is 200 times = 200 % 

    Developing Hockey Intelligence Attend Hockey University

     PLAYERS NEED TO  WATCH GAMES OVER AND OVER AND OVER

    The difference between being a top end player and the one who floats in the middle - is the player who develops his intuitive knowledge. Well how does a player develop this Hockey IQ. How do you gain this hockey IQ or Hockey Sense? He needs to attend: The Hockey University. Where are these classes held? The Classroom is your living room broadcasted via your TV. Yes the lessons are watching games. Over and over and over. Young players fail to do this on a regular basis. Sure they watch the games and look at highlights of specular plays but that isn't what is needed. You need to WATCH the game. You don't need to master plays and drills. You need to know what to do in game situations. Some of you get what i am saying and for some, unfortunately it is going over the rafters.

    How to Email College Coaches

    How to email college coaches.
    Sending an introductory email to a college coach can get your foot in the door with a program you’re interested in and give a coach the opportunity to conduct their initial evaluation of you. However, emailing college coaches as a means to get discovered isn’t as effective as it was five years ago. Coaches are getting hundreds—if not thousands—of emails from recruits. Simply sending an email isn’t enough to get a coach’s attention. You need to create clear, concise emails with attention-grabbing subject lines to give yourself a chance at the coach opening your email, reading it and responding.

    Before you start firing off emailing college coaches across the country, there are a few specific details you need to know first. Here’s a rundown of what we’ll be covering to help you better understand how to email college coaches:

    Quick Links
    Craft a subject line
    Personalize the body of the email
    Use our email templates
    Edit your email thoroughly

    What subject line is best when emailing college coaches?
    In talking about how to email college coaches, the subject line always comes up as one of the most critical pieces of the email. Without an eye-catching subject line, a coach won’t even open your perfectly crafted email.

    To get started on writing your subject line, there’s a few key pieces of information you need to include: Your grad year, your position, state (if you’re emailing a local coach) and a piece of information that’s unique about you. Do you have a lightning fast 40-yard dash time? Are you looking at an academic-focused school that will be impressed with your ACT score? If you compete in a sport in which club teams are really important, consider adding in your club team and/or the tournament you’ll be at next. Once you determine that, take a look at just a few examples of well-crafted subject lines:

    2020 Linebacker, 6’2” 220lbs, 4.6 40yd dash
    2018 LH Pitcher, 90 MPH FB, 33 ACT
    2021 from IL, 23.25-second 50 free
    2019 Center-mid, Premier Academy, MLK Tourney schedule attached
    2019 OPP, 9'8" APP, Premier VB Academy, video attached
    Here are a few general tips to consider when creating your subject line for emailing college coaches:

    Think about what would be important to the coach. Generic subject lines like “football recruit” or “looking to play for you” and even “talented high school football prospect” are going to blend into the background of the coach’s inbox. Instead, do you have an interesting stat? Do you play a unique position? Is your height and weight important for your sport and position?
    Keep your subject line to 50 characters or less. Coaches are on the go and probably read the majority of their emails on their phone. An extremely lengthy subject line will only get cut off, so you need to maximize the space you have.
    Use numbers and stats in your subject line. We’ve hinted at this before, but including key stats in your subject line can really make an impact. Plus, numbers set your subject line apart from all the words crowding the coach’s inbox.

    What to say when emailing a college coach
    You’ve laid down the ground work, now it’s time to write the email! Think about your email like an inverted pyramid (https://www.getvero.com/resources/inverted-pyramid-method/). The top of the email is where you need to grab the coach’s attention. You can use a stat about the team that interested you or why you’d like to play for them. The next section is to give a little more information about yourself and to show the coach why you would be a good fit for their program. Here is the key information you want to be sure to include when emailing college coaches:

    Your general information: Name, graduation year, high school and club name
    Academics: GPA, test scores, if they would be important information for the coach you’re emailing
    Athletics: sports specific stats and relevant measurables
    Contact information: your phone number and email, as well as the contact information for your coaches 
    The last section should be giving them a specific next step, such as letting the coach know you will be giving them a call at a specific date and time or inviting them to come see you compete. Whatever you do, avoid sending mass, generic emails out to all the coaches you want to contact when emailing college coaches. The coach will know if you took the time to personalize your email, and it will make a difference. Coaches want to recruit players who are genuinely interested in their program—most don’t have the time and resources to recruit an athlete who is not likely to commit to their school.

    How to start an email to a college coach

    Similar to your subject line, your opening needs to be attention-grabbing. Depending on the type of school and the coach—here’s where your research comes into play—your opening will change. If you’re looking at academically-focused schools, lead with how impressed you are by their academic record when emailing the college coach. If you’re emailing a school with a winning record, point out that you’d love to be part of such a successful legacy. There are numerous reasons you would be emailing a college coach. Here are a few examples of ways to open an email:

    “I wanted to connect with you after speaking with Amber Brown, an athlete on your team. She told me about your coaching style and I believe that, based on your emphasis on work ethic and training, I would be a great fit for your program.”
    “I’ve been following your program for a while, and recently found an article about you that inspired me. I wanted to connect with you because I think that I would be a great addition to your team.”
    “In researching your program, I noticed that you will be graduating 5 seniors this year. I would love to help bridge the gap left by those departing seniors.”
    How much information do I need to include in my email to college coaches?

    This is an introductory email, so you don’t need to give the coach your whole history. Instead, tease a few key stats that you think this coach would be interested in knowing. Are you the ideal height and weight for your position? Include that. Do you have an outstanding GPA and test scores and you’re emailing an academically-focused coach? Include that. Also, make sure you include contact information for your current coaches: your club coach, high school coach, persona trainers, and anyone else that you have worked with for your sport. Then, link off to your NCSA recruiting profile where the coach can find your highlight video, all your stats and your personal statement.

    At the end of your email, tell the coach what you’re going to do next

    At the end, you want to specifically let the coach know what you’ll be doing next. If you’re planning on following up the email with a call, let them know to expect a call from you in the next few days. If you’d like to visit their campus, tell them you will give them a call to schedule a time to connect. You don’t need to use generic language like, “If you’re interested, feel free to call, email or text me.” If the coach is interested, they will contact you. Instead, tell them the next step you’re going to take, and then what they need to do in response.

    Insider tip: Turn on your “read receipt” function to see if a coach has opened our email. This feature is really helpful for athletes who are too young to be contacted by a coach yet. Read receipts will let you know if a coach has received and opened your email, so you can be sure to follow up accordingly. Learn more about how you can enable this feature for your next email.

    Sample email 1—Athletic-focused email
    Dear Coach Smith,

    I’ve been following your team for a while now, and was really impressed by your team’s performance in the championship game last year—congratulations! I wanted to connect with you because I would love to be part of this competitive team.

    My name is Jane Doe and I’m a 6’2” forward at Generic High School in Chicago, IL. I was recently honored by being been named the Gatorade Player of the Year. I am currently a starter on my AAU basketball team and am a four-year varsity starter for my high school team. I think that my work ethic and talent would be a great match for your program.

    For the rest of my athletic stats, highlight video, academic stats and personal statement, please visit my online profile at: [link to NCSA profile].

    I will be competing in an AAU tournament near you on September. 5, 2017, with my first game at 1p.m. CT. I would really appreciate it if you would could see me compete in person.

    Thank you!

    Sample email 2—Academic-focused email
    Dear Coach Johnson,

    I’m really impressed by your athletes’ dedication to both their athletics and academics. I noticed that you not only have a winning record, but you have set the school record for graduating the most athletes! As an aspiring college athlete, I am driven to excel both athletically and academically, and I believe I would be a great fit for your program.

    My name is John Smith and I’m a left-handed pitcher with an 85-MPH fastball. My biggest asset is that I’m a team player who focuses both on the field and in the classroom. I’m currently in the top 5% of my class with a 4.0 GPA and a 32 ACT. I’d like to major in prelaw, and I’ve been researching your school’s well-known prelaw program.

    You can view my profile for more information about my athletic and academic qualifications, as well as my skills video here: www.myNCSAprofile.org.

    I’m planning a trip to visit your campus this September, and I would love to meet you or another member of your coaching staff. Can you please let me know if you have any availability to meet with me? I will also be calling you tomorrow at 5p.m. CT to schedule a meeting!

    Thank you,

    John Smith

    Before you send, edit, edit, edit
    You’re so close to sending that email, but before you do, run spell check and re-read. A great way to catch strange wording or grammar errors is to read your email out loud. When you hear a phrase that sounds wrong, you’ll know you need to fix it. You can also cut and paste your email into Google Translate and listen for any errors.

    Still not sure if the email is error free? Have your parents take a look to double check. Make sure that you have included all your contact information, your call to action and a link to your full recruiting profile

    Insider tip: Try sending your email between 4-8 p.m., Tuesday-Sunday. Our data show that this is the best time to send an email to college coaches.
    Congratulations—now you know how to email college coaches, from the research to the subject line, from address to the email body! But your work is not done yet.
