Collegiate Softball Connection is run by noted recruiting expert, Catharine Aradi. For over twenty-five years, through her book, clinics and consulting service, she has helped thousands of softball players successfully "make the cut" at the college level! CSC works with softball players and college softball teams around the U.S. and Canada.  CSC alumni are playing at all levels of collegiate competition.

CSC's primary goal is to guide you and your family through the college search process. CSC's secondary purpose is to enable college coaches to broaden their recruiting base by sending them information on great prospects. CSC works directly with 450 to 500 colleges providing them with player bios, video links and reminders about tournaments CSC clients are attending.

CSC’s Target Zone schools represent a cross section of programs increasing your chance of finding the best collegiate fit.  (Remember, 75% of all college players will compete at the Div. II, Div. III, or NAIA level. As an athlete, you need to explore as many of your options as possible.)

CSC offers two levels of service and will be helpful to any serious ball player who wants experienced, personalized guidance through the college search. Athletes are encouraged to sign up for the
Fast Track option as a high school junior (or senior). Sophomores can choose the Head Start option which becomes the Fast Track once they are juniors.  Travel ball teams can join the Basic Connection at any time.  (Ask about team/organization discounts!)  Download a CSC brochure.

Collegiate recruiting is extremely competitive, but if you know how to identify your "Wow Factor" colleges and how to successfully market
your skills and experience, you'll be the prospect college coaches want to recruit! By choosing to partner with CSC, you will have the resources you need to find the college and team that are right for you! 

Remember, college coaches aren’t recruiting fancy web pages or big corporations, and most coaches don’t have the time to surf the web looking randomly for players. They want to know that you’re interested in their school, their team, their game. CSC  helps you make this happen!
