Coaches at all levels of college softball are looking for prospects. But competition for scholarships and starting positions on college teams gets tougher every year. Out of the thousands of talented softball players who hope to play in college, only about one in fifteen will "make the cut".  In this workshop, we discuss what it takes to play softball in college as well as how to find the college and the team that are right for you or your player. Participants (parents, coaches and athletes) will have the opportunity to learn:

• the "facts of life" about college softball, scholarships and financial aid
• why increased opportunities have led to increased competition for available dollars
• how to take control of your own college search
• why academics have become a major component in the recruiting game
• what coaches look for in their athletes
• how to effectively market both your athletic and your academic skills
• how to  find your "wow factor" schools!

I provide an overview of the college search process and discuss what it takes to "make the cut". Workshops run 60-80 minutes depending on the length of the question and answer session, additional topics that may be covered, and so on. Clinics can be hosted by high schools, travel teams, youth organizations or anyone interested in college softball. (A Skype workshop typically costs $300 and information handouts will be provided via email in advance.)

To host a Skype workshop, you will need a large flat screen TV or projection system that can be hooked up to a computer, and you will need to have a Skype app on your computer/tablet as well as  high-speed internet connectivity.

“Cathi Aradi’s knowledge of & insight on the college softball recruiting process was exceptional. From years of experience as a parent, coach and counselor to many athletes, there is not a situation she has not encountered. If you want to gain real insight into the do’s & don’ts, I highly encourage you to attend one of her workshops and buy her book.” - David Dieterich, Loudoun Storm (VA)
