ABOUT COLLEGIATE SOFTBALL CONNECTION
CSC has been educating families, empowering athletes, and ensuring players conduct a successful college search for over 25 years! If you're the parent of a softball player who dreams of playing in college, chances are you've heard every version of recruiting hype there is! All too often, these statements turn out to be misleading. But by the time parents figure this out, it's usually too late. Multi-sport, corporate services and for-profit recruiting camps want you to believe being recruited is as easy as writing a check. Collegiate Softball Connection works one-on-one with families to help you navigate the complex maze that is the college search. Let CSC help you or your player beat out the competition and find a spot on a college team.
Families have two levels of service to choose from. With the Head Start/Fast Track option, you receive personalized guidance through the college search from noted recruiting expert Catharine Aradi along with an introduction to a variety of colleges at all levels of competition. Travel teams can sign up for the Basic Connection. This offers a low-cost way to expand a teams' exposure opportunities while helping parents/players stay on track. (Individual families may also opt for the Basic Connection.) For more information on CSC services, call CSC, email email@example.com, or download a brochure!
