The only way to truly get it done is for the girl and her family to do the
work themselves, with whatever help they can draw upon. That means making
a video of her skills....batting, throwing, fielding, etc. It means
contacting whatever schools she is interested in directly, by letter or
phone. It means sending that tape to any coach who has an interest. The
interested coaches will find a way to see her play after that. Sometimes
you can gain extra help from one of the recruiting services available, as
Cathi Aradi's Collegete Softball Connection for example. These often
advertise on the Web or in Fastpitch magazine.
Coaches at the college level have so many girls to see now that they will
tell you that it is the girl who makes the effort to contact them, to
convince them that she really is interested in them and their school, who
will be followed up on and perhaps recruited. Not even the top caliber
California athetes can sit back today and rely on their "reputation" or
their team's to be recruited by a school that they would like to attend.
