Never lend your car to anyone to whom
you have given birth to, but you can never do to much to help them obtain

have read and studied Jim and Marcy
Herb's book entitled, "In Search of the Athletic Scholarship."
This booklet is really a manual for the student athlete and their parents.
It is a "parent and student/athletic Do It Yourself" book, written
by the parents of a high school volleyball player, and what they learned
in the process of sucessfully searching for a college athletic scholarship. The
elements within their book apply to all high school sports and is rewritten
yearly to apply the latest NCAA regulations.
book covers such topics as, How to get started, Preparing your Athletic
Resume, How and When to make the
first contact, Your first
face to face meeting, Maintaining Academic Eligibility, The NCAA Initial
Eligibility Clearing House, Campus Visits, How to prepare your video tape
and much more. If your looking at playing sports in college, with or with
our a scholarship this book is required reading for both the student and
the parent. I've corresponded with Jim, over the Internet for several years,
and I've asked for permission for readers of this article to send him an
electronic message about his book, or about the process of searching for
the Athletic Scholarship.
