Recruiting Considerations


THINGS TO CONSIDER: What parents/Coaches should ask and recruits should know.

We realize that choosing a college is a difficult decision, and the more information that a prospective student/athlete can get, the easier the decision will be. We also realize the University of Connecticut isnít the only college or university that the prospective student/athlete will be looking into. With that in mind, here are some of the questions that the prospective student/athlete should know the answers to before they choose a school with a strength and conditioning program.

  1. Does the staff have related science degrees, more specifically, masterís degrees; and are they certified by the NSCA or the USAW to be a strength and conditioning coach?
  2. Will I have individualized workouts based on strength and conditioning levels?
  3. Will I receive constant supervision from qualified staff members?
  4. Will the weight room be reserved for my teammates and me or will it have open times for any student/athlete at any time.
  5. What type of strength training facility will I be training in?
  6. Will the team have their own strength and conditioning coach or is the strength and conditioning program the sole responsibility of the sport coaches.
  7. Does the school place student/athleteís experience as a top priority?
