In late winter/early spring, a number of colleges will host “Junior Days” over the weekend(s).
So… just what IS a Junior Day?
A Junior Day an invite-only event at the college for underclassmen. Recruited student-athletes have the opportunity to visit campus and tour the athletic facilities. They see the field of play, practice facilities, weight room, the athletic training offices and more! The school’s objective is to show a recruit what every aspect of college football (or baseball, etc.) life would be like at the college.
Student-athletes get to meet and visit with the head coach as well as the coach who is recruiting the player (whether by position or geographic location). This recruiter will also make introductions to the student-athlete’s potential position coach. These coaches then show them how they could enter the game plans, what the program looks for at their specific positions, as well as advice for how an athlete can improve their abilities and level of play for the upcoming seasons.
For more on Junior Days — as well as how to make the most of them in terms of communicating with the coaching staff before, during and after — check out this throwback blog post of ours by clicking here.
