VIDEO: NFCA and softball community takes a stand against early recruiting

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – With only two weeks left before the NCAA Division I Council and the Student-Athlete Experience Committee meet in Indianapolis (April 16-18), the NFCA and the softball community are making a strong and final push towards addressing the problem of early recruiting. In January of 2018, the NFCA announced that its Division I membership submitted a response to the NCAA on current early recruiting proposals in the legislative cycle. NCAA Division I college softball coaches have asked for all recruiting contact to begin September 1 of a prospective student-athlete’s (“PSA”) junior year.

“The biggest problem facing college softball today is early recruiting, but it is not going to change unless the coaches and the NCAA work together to make it change,” said NFCA President and Tennessee co-head coach Karen Weekly.

The NFCA recognizes and supports the stance that our membership has taken on the epidemic of early recruiting in collegiate softball. There are many ways that you can join the NFCA’s effort in slowing down the recruiting process.

Please forward this video and information to those who are affected by early recruiting and sign the petition below. If you would like more information, contact Joanna Lane, NFCA Director of Education joanna@nfca.org or 502-409-4600.
