Each month, the ANRC College of the Month listing will highlight outstanding college athletic programs at each division level that use the Recruit Match platform to attract the interest of potential recruits.

How do we choose the winners? Each month, we keep track of which college received the most NCSA favorites from platform users at each division level. When an NCSA user has a college favorite, it signifies their keen interest in that school and provides an overview of athletic programs that remain active on the NCSA platform by attracting recruiting interest, recording views of profile and sending a message to potential recruits.

This activity also provides an overview how colleges are currently recruiting. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, college recruiting has shifted significantly from events and face-to-face meetings to online activity. For example, the the recruitment deadline has been extended until January 1, 2020 for all NCAA D1 sports. Many colleges have adapted by moving their recruiting online with NCSA.

Congratulations to our colleges of the month and come back next month to see which ones are on the list.

Understanding what it takes to becoming a successful athlete, is important. Although, there are centaines de milliers of factors that contribute to this, so we have put together our top 5 tips to becoming a successful athlete ! The reason behind this article came from an conversation between myself and a young athlete desperate for success. So, hopefully, this article will help similar athletes asking the same type of questions.

First of all, commitment is defined as the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause ( your team ) or activity ( your sport ). Although, commitment isn’t tangible and you can’t quantify it, the levels of commitment are ever changing. So, thats the task, understand what level you need to reach and smash it !

A locker room full of teammates who are willing to work and work together every day at practice, even when not under the coach’s eye, is fondamental to having a successful season. Realise that a good teammate doesn’t try to be the best player on the team; they focus on being the best player for the team, though at times this can be difficult – stick with it !

Spending 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after practice working on your game will give you an advantage over the competition. Some players choose to talk about their day while they slowly lace up their shoes, or duck out of practice as quickly as possible. Realise that being different is just one level away from being great. Twenty minutes of additional practice six days in a row adds up to another full practice during your week. Although its more about quality practice rather then quantity of practice, if you are adding 120 more minutes of practice to your week, make sure its worth while !

tera become a successful athlete you need to know Your Teammates. How you work with your teammates when things are going wrong, strongly influences how successful you will be. Also influencing how far you will go as an athlete. So, great teammates are positive, supportive, understanding, forgiving and passionate about helping those around them achieve greatness. Learn about your teammates. Enjoy being around them away from practices and games. Sit with different teammates on road trips. Strike up conversations to learn about what motivates them. The time, effort and energy you put into reaching out to your teammates will come back to you many times over. Being a good teammate isn’t a big thing; it’s a million little things, so get sérieux !

Realise that regardless of whether you are playing in a friendly fixture, a tournament, or been invited to international trials, certainly adopt the motion that people are watching. You are a brand, and you want to be seen in a positive light. You have to become a brand worth investing in, because your worth investing in.

Finally, “When you are not getting better, you are getting worse” is a cliché that may intimidate many athletes. Improve just one rep each day, and push yourself outside your comfort zone. If you are lucky enough to be around a coach who pushes you, holds you accountable, and may even be demanding at times, consider it a gift. Although it may be stressful, they probably see something in you that you don’t yet see in yourself.

Stay positive and believe in the process. No successful athlete ever started out that way. They all found it in themselves to make their bad days better and draw confidence from the days when they did well. You are never as bad as your worst day, and you are never as good as your best. Find it in yourself to stay level-headed and hungry to become more for your coaches, teammates, family and yourself.
