    Hello everyone I'm currently a sophomore in high school and usna is my dream school. I have played varsity golf for 2 years now and there's a good chance I'll become a captain next year. So I was wondering how does someone go about becoming a recruited athlete because I'm interested in playing women's golf at the academy. Thanks in advance!

    First, it goes without saying, be excellent at your sport. Not sure about how golf works but many sports have prospective athlete questionnaires online to submit.
    In my case, my high school coach initially sent an email to the coach of my sport early spring of my junior year. My coach received a follow up email that they were interested and it went on from there. NCAA regulations regarding recruiting are pretty explicit about the when, how, how often a coach may contact an athlete. I think in my case I received a call from the coach the first week of July after my junior year as per NCAA guidelines and then it was no more than 1 call per week but I think emails are more flexible.

    The above link will take you to the recruiting page. I don't think it is too early to fill it out and submit it. Some of the sports have "junior" days where they are inviting juniors to campus informally (not as a paid official visit). This will get your file on the recruiting coordinator's desk. It can't hurt.

    Also, I would look at the results and performance of their current women's golfers to see how you would fit in.
