Girls Basketball College Selection Tips I

When you are being recruiting by several college coaches, it can get confusing on what school you would like to attend. It may get to a point were each coach is saying the same thing about their school. To help you narrow your focus on which school to sign a basketball scholarship with, consider these two areas.

School Location

School location is an important factor to consider. Do you want to stay close to home or would you like to go away? If you go away from home, consider travel arrangements for you to get back and forth during breaks and travel arrangements for your family to visit. Or are their relatives in the city where the school is located. Keep in mind different regions have different climates of weather. If you live in a mild climate area, you can handle being in an area where the climate is not as mild.

Academic Programs

Although you have the opportunity to play basketball on the college level, your main goal is to get a degree. If you already know what type of degree you would like to obtain, make sure the school you select has the program. Sometimes coming out of high school, you are not certain what you would like to major in. This is ok. Just make sure you are familiar with the different majors and minors offered at the school.

School location and academic programs are just two areas to look at while considering colleges to sign a letter of intent to play basketball for. However they are important.
