My D23 is a soccer recruit and she has been asked by D3 coaches to come visit the school unofficially. My understanding is that there is one official visit per D3 school.
My D would love to attend and to play soccer at these schools. Some schools saw her play, but some only saw film which raises red flags for me. We live on the west coast, so the flight will be all day to the east coast. They are asking us to come in the fall or spring. We have not visited any of these schools before.
Common sense says, “You should go if the coach asks you to come and you are interested in the school.” Are the coaches serious when they ask you to come for a unofficial visit? My fear is that this is a fishing expedition, like some of those ID camps. Couple coaches only saw her film, so that is why I am wary.
Her team has 4 national showcases, so I am pretty sure the coaches will be able to see her. We were planning to visit when they are seriously interested. Or is this it?
Perhaps, this is a matter of showing demonstrated interest in the school and soccer. Thoughts? Thanks!
