This is a copy of an email sent out by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association and I've posted it as an informational article.

High School Coaches Impacted by Early Recruiting

It started as a lively discussion at the Division I Caucus during the 2017 NFCA National Convention. It has progressed into a full scale effort to put an end to early recruiting in our sport. Over the course of the past four months, the softball community has rallied behind this movement and we believe the catalyst for change lies in our coaching community. We need your help to not only spread the word about our efforts to affect change but also to become active participants in this endeavor.

This is not a Division I issue, this is a softball community issue. High School student-athletes continually feel the pressure to choose their collegiate programs, sometimes as early as middle school, denying high school coaches the opportunity to guide these student-athletes effectively. Early recruiting has negatively impacted interscholastic athletics and by taking action, slowing down the process, and ending this practice, high school softball can continue to be a focal point in holistic student-athlete development.  

Please watch the video below:
