Questions and Answers
Scholarship for Athletes (SFA): At SFA, we try to explain to our clients that the recruiting process is like being on three year job interview; is that how you view the recruiting process? David Roditi (DR):
Yes, we are looking at everything: how they communicate, how they relate to the team and staff. I am also very curious to see what questions they may have and what they want to talk about.
SFA: What advice do you have for the parents of high school student athletes about the recruiting process?
DR: To do research and get somebody that knows how to help them. The level of college tennis only gets higher and deeper.
SFA: Assuming that they have the academics and tennis level to attend your school, when should junior players begin to contact you or send you their resume?
DR: Sophomore year. They can send update emails once every 3 months or when they win something big.
