What do College Coaches look for?

 

In the US, every coach is different, every school is different.  This is one of the exciting things about our sport in the US, it is so much bigger than Australia.  Australia has a pathway that is very, very small indeed in comparison.  

 

As you move higher up the pathway less and less people's opinion on you matter in Australia.  That is not to say the people making assessments are poor at it, because they are not, they know how to identify talent in most cases.  They have ability to identify and harness talent in the right way, however ultimately there will always be subjectivity in making assessments and very few people that matter are making those assessments in Australia.  In the US every coach sees players slightly differently and there is not a tight, integrated network like there is in Australia.
