Recruiting Trip How-to

Recruiting Trip – “How to set up a day of evaluation, instruction and information.”

  • The 1st step in the process is to fill out the information form and email ([email protected] ) or fax (1.403.654.4296) it to Attention: Coach McTavish.
  • The 2nd step is to set-up a day to come and visit the community of Vauxhall, Vauxhall High School and the Vauxhall Academy.  The recruiting trip is NOT a sale pitch rather a chance to learn more about what the overall program is all about.  It is a chance for student-athletes and their families to learn as much about the Academy and our staff wants s to know about YOU!
