DO YOU WANT TO COMPETE IN COLLEGE WOMEN'S TRACK & FIELD?

ABOUT COLLEGE WOMEN'S TRACK AND FIELD RECRUITING

College women's track and field offers athletes the opportunity to play against high-level competition while also studying at a University. Track and Field is very competitive and less than 5% of high school student-athletes go on to compete at the college level.

 

To maximize your exposure and be discovered by college coaches you need to create an online recruiting profile with an NCAA verified third party. Your profile will allow college coaches to properly assess you as a prospect because it includes all the information they want to see including your recruiting video, key stats, academic level (GPA) and contact information.​

WHY COMPETE IN COLLEGE TRACK AND FIELD?

  • Maximize your potential: Learn and apply the values that are useful in all aspects in life. College sport teaches you the importance of teamwork, leadership, goal setting, work ethic, time management, discipline and handling pressure.

  • Develop relationships and make connections: The network you create from your sport can open the door for many things in life including job opportunities, friendships and partnerships.

  • Live a healthier lifestyle: Regular exercise helps boost immunity and contributes to overall physical health. 

WOMEN'S TRACK AND FIELD SCHOLARSHIP STATISTICS

The following table numerically summarizes the availability of women's track and field scholarships across the United States. Note: This shows the number of maximum scholarships a college can provide. This is called “fully funded”. However, many colleges do not have the maximum and therefore the number of total scholarships can be less than shown in the table. Athletic scholarships at colleges change yearly with increases and decreases, so you cannot fully determine who has available scholarships except by joining a network like ImRecruitable where you can find out directly what is available from the coaches. 

HOW TO MAKE A TRACK AND FIELD RECRUITING VIDEO

Knowing what to include attracting a coach’s attention is important. We have listed some guidelines to follow when filming your highlight video: 

 

Keep the video short to about 5mins and no more than three races/meets.

  • Sprinters should record through all phases of block work (mark, set, release, push, drive and acceleration phase).

  • Jumpers and Vaulters should focus on foot placement consistency, film from the open side of the jump and show off both the runway approach and position in the air.

  • Throwers should include an aerial view—letting coaches see the rotation of the throw—focusing on their footwork and include distances after each throw.

  • Hurdlers will want to zoom in on their lead leg, trail leg and arm drive along with block work; 300m and 400m athletes will also want to demonstrate their lane efficiency.

  • Middle Distance/Distance runners should show off their start, cut-in expertise and overall aggressiveness, strength and stamina.
