For Families: How do I ensure that my son gets exposure and the best opportunity to be recruited?

We feel it is important for families to understand the recruiting process, so that they give themselves the best chance at playing beyond high school if they are competitively able to do so.  The following is what we feel has led to success for our former athletes. It has also been vetted by college baseball coaches to ensure it aligns with their reality.

Play for a competitive team that plays in a competitive league/tournaments.


It is important that the competition you are playing is top notch. If and when a coach watches you play, they want to know that the pitching or hitters you are facing are college bound. This gives credibility to your own performance when using statistics as a measure of predicted success at the next level.At Impact, we feel the KCCBA helps accomplish this.  In the American Division in 2020, nearly every pitcher we faced was college bound and a good majority of the hitters were committed to play college baseball.


In addition, we try to select tournaments that we know coaches will be in attendance and the competition will be solid.  For the summer of 2021, we are targeted a few of the following: Chad Wolf Classic in AR, Five Tool, Prospect Select Plus, PBR Creekside, to name a few.


Play for a program that is connected to college coaches.

Similar to that in the work place, having trusted references is huge.  Rarely does an employer hire a new employee without conducting a background check and calling references.  This is true in the recruiting process.  Coaches want to be able to trust a club or high school coach regarding a player they are interested in.  Fortunately, Impact has 30+ players at various colleges.  This has allowed us to build relationships with those coaches and gives us credibility when referring a player to them.


At Impact, we will not over inflate a player's ability to a college coach. We always are transparent with parents/players first when they ask our thoughts about their son's ability, although that may be hard to hear at times.  It is crucial that we shoot college coaches straight to continue to build trust for future players down the road.


Become the best possible baseball player first, then worry about being recruited


Statistics show that only 7% of High School baseball players go on to play collegiately.  Let that sink in for a minute.  Are you in the top 7%?  What that means is on most high school teams, if you are not the best player on the team, the chances of you playing beyond high school are slim.  I think this is an important place to start because families spend a ton of money on individual showcase events through PBR, Perfect Game, etc.  There is no point to go to these events if you are not standing out with your measurables (60 yard dash, exit velocity, throwing velocity, body type, etc.).  Therefore, you should first invest your time and money to develop. Focus on strength and conditioning. Focus on skill development through individual lessons.  When your measurables begin to impress, then it is time to consider attending showcase type events.  On the link above, you can look at our players' measureables.  In addition, you can look at national showcase data to see where players are measuring at
