I don't know what happened to the original person who posted this question.
I am also looking at NCSA and would like the inside scoop. My son plays football.
Any information would be appreciated.

If you have two thousand dollars to throw away, I'm sure Chris Krause and his merry men at NCSA would love to talk to you. Don't believe the hype, I don't think there is a "coach" or "scout" among them, but there are no shortage of sales people with a slick presentation to relieve you of your funds. I have talked to many people after I was taken for a couple of thousand, including former "scouts" and other unhappy clients and believe me I got off light. Money back guarantee.... yea right. Good luck with your son.

Here it is... If you want more info let me know how to contact you and I can shed some serious light on this issue... I was a scout for them and I have put many kids in college without them.
First off if you do not have any time whatsoever to do the recruiting yourself or if you are completely clueless on how to do this then this may be a good option for you. NCSA has done a good job of informing folks on what to do to get recruited... You still have a lot of work to do, even though you are using NCSA as a service... You get informed of what you have to do rather than someone doing it for you. Which is fine because I would not want someone doing my recruiting for me anyway, and if someone is doing it for you that is borderline non-amatuerism and screams agent. So you are on your own anyway, and still have 2K to play.... So If I'm getting recruited I need to be in control but informed. (Hope that makes sense)
If you have gone down the recruiting path or know someone that has you can get a wealth of info from a FREE source. It's not that hard....
Getting recruiting is not as hard as most make it out to be it's just time consuming. NCSA will make you believe you can't do it without them.... (no more 2K to Play)... If you got time you can do this for FREE. Even if you don't have time you can do this for FREE you just have to be more selective through this process.Here is one of the biggest misconception folks have... The more letters I get the more I'm getting recruited... WRONG!!! If you're a cross country runner I'm sure you would not be really excited about hearing from U. of Alaska!!!! You don't want to be inundated with too much crap. Why get letters from schools you are not interested in. Key thing here is What does your son/daughter want to study? Where do they want to go to school? What are the recruirements of getting accepted in that institution? Do I qualify?You also have to have a REALITY CHECK on actual skill set and if they will be able to play for that school... Most kids say they want to go to big DI schools cause that's all they know and hear... If a big DI school wants you they will let you know... for the most part "They probably already know about you".... You need to start contacting coaches at the schools you are interested in and see if there is an interest. Don't stop at DI look across the board... MOST IMPORTANT PART IS VISIT THE SCHOOL'S AND MAKE SURE YOU LIKE THEM!!!!! If you don't like the school and you are 3000 miles away from home you're going to be a pretty unhappy camper, if your sport goes away like injuries, lost scholorships etc, and you have to be an actual student...There are a lot of things you can do early on in your HS years to help you get recruited in the future Jr./Sr. years. MOST IMPORTED!!!! GET YOUR MIND RIGHT!!!! Stay focused in school. Most higher institutions nowadays are looking for STUDENT-athletes that are getting the job done in class... Don't be ignorant there are exceptions to everything but if you got your grades in check you MIGHT beat out a player with your same skill set.... You need to be pretty agressive about what you want.Hope this help. If you need more info let me know how to contact you... IT'S FREE

Well for one, would it be worth paying a few dollars to save tens of thousands of dollars on a four year college?
I could be wrong, not sure who I'm communicating with however, do you think a great service is free?
Not saying your wrong, you just may be looking at the glass half empty vs. half full.
