I am venting for a friend of mine, they went through the process with NSR and wanted to tell it all,  Don't waste your money, you do everything they are supposed to do!  Their Rep hasn't even been to a game to watch their child play.  They try and reach NSR and No phone calls or emails in return.   Don't make the same mistake.

Had a call from one of there guys

He told me he saw her play and thought she was really GREAT and he wanted to get her recruited, so i asked him when, where and what position she played, he didnt have a clue. 

So his next tactic was a really good speech trying to play on fear that if she doesn't sign up with NSR she would never get recruited. I called him on his BS, then told me basically my daughter wasn't really a good fit for any school he represents and wouldn't be taking her as a client. I kind slipped and said, thank god, i really wouldn't want her attending school that would hire a company such as yours. he hung up.

Send emails to the coaches of the schools you want to attend, don't expect them to email you back, they probably won't. 

there is an app on google play called  softball bound, has just about every email address of every college softball coach. 

go to camps at those universities.

there is a couple of free places out there that will let you post your softball profile, i kind of like https://www.captainu.com/ there are a large number of schools on there.

CSA seems pretty legit, I spoke with the owner and she stays committed to her girls and will support them in the path they choose. JMO

I agree that prospective athletes emailing coaches seems to be the most reasonable way to get recruited.  I would hope that any coach with integrity would want to hear directly from the kids. Not their parents and definitely not any sharks looking to make bank off of families trying to get their kid into school.  D1 coaches cannot contact student athletes until Sept. 1 of their junior year, now, with the rule change. Does that apply to D2 and below?

No, that rule applies only to D1.

did anyone see the NSR crew out this weekend?   stood by a couple of them, first thanks for the shade and second just a waste of time listening to them.   DO NOT USE NSR for your recruiting venture.   You can do what they do by getting with your coach and contacting the same people they say they know.
