Rules of Parenting # 2

EVERY STUDENT ATHLETE THAT GETS RECRUITED     WILL BE GOOGLED

caution  (1)

As a student-athlete, when you enter and are added to a collegiate recruiting pool or prospective list, YOU will have a Google search conducted on you by a college coach.  Facebook, Twitter, texts, emails, Snap-chats, Instagram postings – college coaches will search them and find you or the “ONLINE” YOU.  This is a representation of YOU, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR SCHOOL.  Inappropriate materials will be looked upon by a potential college coach and COULD AFFECT whether you receive an offer or not.

Social networking IS a major issue.  Student-athletes routinely put themselves in high profile situations.  The common mistakes                                                                                                                                        – “this won’t get me in trouble”                                                                                                – my friends won’t do anything with this                                                                                  – no one will see this

Parents must be proactive and make your children understand that :

a.  YOU are representing yourself – in what light do you want to portray yourself

b. UNDERSTAND the negative impact of posting statements, pictures, etc.

c.  REMEMBER that participating in athletics is NOT your constitutional right – it is a PRIVILEGE
