Creating your list is an important part of the recruiting process in my opinion. There are so many athletes that will send their film to every school in a country and then hope something sticks. It's certainly one way to go about doing it, but it certainly isn't the best. One reason families tend to move in this direction is because they don't know who will be interested in their athlete. But why don't you know that? You should be able to have some idea right? Based on feedback from club coaches/directors you should a notion of where on the spectrum you fit. Again, potentially something will stick! But I prefer NOT sending emails to 300 schools across country if I don't have to.
