Commitment Process Part 2

07-13-2017

So in Part 2 I'm going to be talking about my personal commitment to Auburn University. 

I began playing for the ECNL (a high level soccer league) at the end of my freshman year. Since I wanted to play in college, I began emailing college coaches and attending their camps. Basically, it was all about communication. It's not personal. You have to get the coaches' attention, and you have to ask if they are interested, and move on if not. I went to the Auburn camp the summer before my sophomore year, and quickly developed a relationship with the coaches. I continued developing as a player, and eventually, they asked me to come on an unofficial visit. On the visit, I came prepared with several questions. Make sure to ask specifically about your intended major, even if you're not sure about it yet. They were the first school to offer me a spot on the team, but I continued to look at other schools, because it is important that you view ALL your options before making a decision. A rash decision could lead to a transfer, and that is a whole lot of trouble that you don't want to deal with. 

Later on, I decided that Auburn was the right school for me, and I called my coach and verbally committed. During my senior year, I will officially sign, which is legally binding, and requires a coach to provide you with the athletic money they offered earlier. 

I hope this helped!
