Transferring at the college level is very common. In the last decade, athletes have been expected to commit at a younger age especially at the division 1 level. Some are as young as freshmen in high school. As an athlete gets older and matures, their needs can change dramatically. The college or university they have committed to may not offer the major they are interested in studying, the coaching style may not be a fit, there could be a coaching change, or maybe the school is too far from home. Whatever the reason may be for wanting to transfer, it’s important to know that it is possible.
I have college coaches reaching out daily looking for transfers. This is never an easy process, but going through it with someone who has a lot of experience and connections takes the pressure off your whole family. If you are in a position where you realize the college isn’t the right fit for whatever reason, give me a call and let’s put a game plan in place for you to find a perfect fit. I have been helping athletes through the college volleyball recruiting process for the last 5 years. As an expert, my goal is to understand what your needs are academically, athletically, and socially to point you in the right direction. I travel around the country touring campuses, interviewing coaches, and talking with administrations to better guide you through the process.
Consultations are free, and you have nothing to lose. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 714-323-8088. Don’t stress or get yourself in a panic! You cannot begin contacting programs without a release in hand. You must go to your coach first if you want to be released, and have written authorization before you can email college coaches.
