Tartan Athletic Department Offers Tips on College Athletic Recruiting

St. Margaret's Director of Athletics Patrick Bendzick met with parents and student athletes this past Tuesday to help them navigate the process of becoming a college athlete. In the presentation, Mr. Bendzick laid out some of the myths and pitfalls of the recruiting process while also extolling the virtues of the college student-athlete lifestyle.

Parents were introduced to the myriad of resources available to shed some light on the sometimes daunting procedure of being recruited and successfully obtaining a spot in a collegiate athletic program. Student-athletes were briefed on the different NCAA participation options and the financial and commitment levels at each.

“The recruiting process has become increasingly complex, and we are committed to partnering with our families to help our student-athletes achieve their goals. In conjunction with the college counseling department, we customize the process to maximize opportunities and ultimately find the best fit. The NCAA recruiting workshop is a great starting point, and I truly enjoy working on the individual plans with each athlete,” said Mr. Bendzick.
