Parental Do’s and Dont’s
ASSIST & STAY OUT OF THE WAY.
One questions we get asked more than any other, by parents, is “how do I get my son recruited”. The answer, as you have seen, is complex and ever changing. Each year NCAA baseball gets crazier and more confusing, but this does not mean that the parent should become more involved. This process is your child’s journey, not yours. Baseball parents are sometimes so consumed with not letting their child fail that they end up getting in the way and doing way more harm than good. Trying to explain to parents that they need to take a back seat when their kid’s future is directly involved is impossible, but I promise you that the more you leave up to your child, the better they will be. College is about becoming an adult, and that growth starts with the recruiting process. Assist when you can, give advice when asked, but let your player make his decisions organically.
