A: We welcome inquiries and introductions from players at any stage. However, based on CSA and NCAA recruiting guidelines and our own internal calendar, we can only begin official correspondence with Prospective Student-Athletes (PSAs) within a specified period of time. Our recruiting timeline typically looks like this:
- If a player contacts us before September 1 of his or her junior year in high school, we can only provide limited information and link to our prospective player interest forms (see below)—as dictated by NCAA
- We recommend that interested players contact us in September of their junior year in high school. All interested players should fill out our prospective player questionnaire:
- We typically END our recruiting process for next year’s incoming class by November 1 of senior year at the very latest. For example, for the class entering UVA in 2020, all slots were allotted by late October of 2019.
NOTE (COVID AND IN GENERAL): The developing trend across the CSA seems to have many schools making binding offers as early as November of a recruit’s junior year. While we would prefer to maintain our traditional timeline—making most of our offers between June and September—we will likely accelerate our timeline for the UVA class of 2026 due to factors related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
