My Dream of Playing College Hoops

Hey Coach!
I have a "dream" to play college hoops someday... is that too lofty of a goal today?

Not necessarily. If you have invested the time, effort, and discipline to improve your skills throughout each season, then you will be the best judge as to whether or not your skills are comparable to the "next level" of competition. This is especially true if you are playing on an AAU travel team. That experience alone reveals many "secrets" about your game, and the talent you may possess for playing at the intercollegiate level. You must also keep in mind that there are several different levels of intercollegiate competition in basketball: D-1,2,3; NAIA 3 levels, plus Christian School 1, 2; and Community College competitions. Not all schools provide athletic scholarships, but you may find a college that welcomes your application and interest in their school and in some cases will refer your success as an interscholastic athlete to the coaching staff.  True story.
