Player Evaluation Day
Many parents are doing a lot of “leg work” for their son sending all kinds of letters and
materials to college coaches. Some is very good. Most, however, based on what we have
seen, does not present the best picture or scenario for the prospect. Most could use some
professional assistance. Recognizing that everything is relative, we try to help “position”
the prospect and arouse the college coach’s curiosity! The first step in the process is for the
player to be adequately evaluated.
What we assemble is a report that includes data and comments to assist the prospect and
help him make a statement. The key factor to remember is to submit the report to college

WHAT IS A PLAYER EVALUATION?
· It is not a showcase
· It is not a camp or a clinic
· It is not a game or a tournament
· IT IS A PROFESSIONAL GATHERING OF DATA AND FACTS based on a
personal (up to) 1–Hour skill workout or assessment. It is professionally
administered and certified by Ron Golden and is for serious “college bound”
prospects. A review of the recruiting process (scholarships) is also provided.
The material that is gathered (based on the workout) can then be used by the player on his
“home made” Profile that can be submitted to college coaches.
