Our Process

1

Complete PSA Questionnaire

Players start the recruiting process by completing the Prospective Student Athlete form that will be submitted to our team. This process generally starts between your freshman and sophomore year.

2

PSA Consultation

Once receiving the PSA Questionnaire, our team will contact the player and her family to schedule a PSA Consultation to discuss the recruiting process. The process varies for each player, so we will help each family navigate the process and understand timelines.

 

3

Video, Video, Video

Players that want to be recruited in today's college game must have video. Parents will receive instructions on how to video their child during matches. Players will have access to Hudl to create "Highlight Reels" that will can be emailed and will be shown on our social media accounts.

 

4

Recruiting Visits & Camps

Players will begin the process of attending Official & Unofficial Visits after September 1st of their Junior year. Prior to that players may attend special camps or clinics hosted by college programs, VC United or other 3rd Party camps. These camps are NOT required but may lead to additional exposure.

 

5

Commitment & Signing

Once a player receives and offer and decides that the school is the right fit for them, they make a "Verbal Commitment" to the program. That commitment will stay in place until their Senior Year when they will likely sign a National Letter of Intent to play for a school. (Dependent on scholarship situation.)

    We wanted to thank you and Lauren as a recruiter. She is amazing! She is such a wealth of knowledge and support during this recruiting time for Ally! I seriously don't know how we would be surviving without her help from emails, to phone calls, face to face meetings and most importantly emotional support (lol)! We love her!!

    It has been a pleasure working with Lauren to recruit many different Iowa Rockets athletes. Lauren does a great job educating her athletes about how the process works. The Rockets athletes I have communicated with always understand NCAA rules, have great questions, and are extremely proactive during the recruiting process. She also does a great job getting to know what each individual athlete is looking for, and then helps them navigate through the recruiting process to find the school and program that fits the athlete best. Having recruited Iowa Rockets athletes for several years, it is evident Lauren has streamlined the process for both athletes and college coaches!

    Lauren's quick responses, knowledge of her athletes and grasp of schools equate to her being incredible to work with. She is the best thing to hit Iowa since sweet corn! I really enjoy working with her!!!"

    Lauren started building a relationship with my daughter immediately after she was offered a spot on the team. Lauren provides a personal, 360 degree service from prepping our daughter for communicating with college coaches to listening to what our daughter is looking for in a college. Lauren has a straight forward approach which makes the process very efficient.

    I cannot say enough about Lauren and her active involvement with the recruiting process for VC United. She has went above and beyond for us personally. I truly feel at all levels of play with the club she works to get your name out there and really works to find the perfect fit for the player.  Lauren was in contact on a regular basis with Rae Ann (daughter) and myself. She really took an interest in Rae and listened to what she wanted and was looking for in a college and the level of play.  She got her film out there and updated on a regular basis. Before we knew it in one week Rae was taking with 3 different schools. It can be a stressful time and Lauren, along with Eric walked us through it, talked with Rae many times and myself. We live in a rural area, and along with Rae, another girl in a neighboring town, has committed for 2020.
    I found out quickly Lauren is very well respected and trusted amongst the college coaches we talked with.  Before committing Lauren was in contact with Rae making sure she was 100% certain. I felt she really took the time to get to know you and the family.
    Bottom line, I am impressed and Lauren has pretty much done most of the work. She is busy but she always has time for my call or text. We just spoke yesterday and for this fall alone she has close to sixty National Letter of Intent signings to attend. How she will do that I have no idea but between she and Eric, they will make it happen. I cannot thank Lauren and VC United enough for their guidance and help.
