Track recruitment during senior year?

Hello there! Absolutely, senior year is not too late for college track recruitment. It's fantastic that you're thinking ahead and looking to prepare now. One of the first steps you should take is to compile a list of schools you're interested in and reach out to their track coaches. Share your times, your meet results, and any video footage you have of your races. Make sure your academic record is strong as well since it will be part of the coach's consideration.

Next, consider attending college track camps or showcases where coaches can see you perform in person. These events can significantly enhance your visibility among recruiters. Also, ask your high school track coach to advocate on your behalf. They can be a great resource in reaching out to college coaches or recommending you to programs.

Moreover, keep working on improving your performance. College coaches will be interested in seeing progress over your high school career, so your senior year is your last chance to post impressive times. Lastly, stay proactive in your communication with potential colleges and maintain your academic performance. Deadlines for applications and scholarships will come around quickly in your senior year, and you want to be ready to apply when the time comes. Best of luck!
