College Athletic Scholarships: The Path to Recruiting Success in the New Age of NIL, the Transfer Portal and Post COVID Scholarships


It’s a new age. The path to obtaining a scholarship and becoming a collegiate has changed immensely. The recruitment process for student athletes has been completely transformed by the presence of a global pandemic, rising popularity of the transfer portal, and the emergence of NIL deals. Without the proper guidance and knowledge, NCAA recruitment can seem like the WILD WEST.

As a coach, my focus has always been “what are the problems the athletes (and their parent’s) are currently facing? And how can I help solve them?” In the last few years, I noticed that athletes and their parents have had more questions about the recruiting process than ever before.

In my new book, I have compiled the most important lessons that I have learned in my 48 year career as a coach. Outlined is everything required to ensure your athlete puts themself in the best position to obtain the “elusive” scholarship and prepare for a smooth transition to the next level.

MARC NOLAN is a former collegiate D1 kicker and punter, semi-pro soccer player, and free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles. After finishing his own athletic career, he

became the CEO of “The Kickers Zone” -the longest serving kicking and punting one-on-one training company. In his 48 year coaching career, he pioneered “Coaching On Demand Video Analysis” (CODVA) and has worked with thousands of athletes and their parents to help them achieve their athletic dreams.

What Our Customers Say

What our customers have to say about their experience with The Kickers' Zone.

Durant Brooks

“After meeting with Marc and looking at not only the software analysis tools he has designed, but spending several training sessions with his young punters and kickers he has been working out with, I wanted to join him in his endeavor to help these young athletes get better over time. I am excited to be part of something that should be a real “game changer” for not just the athletes’, but also the parents and coaches.”

Eric Maust

“As a fellow ND alum, I thought that I was receiving special attention and energy from Coach Nolan as he shared with me skills and techniques to punting. Then I saw him work with some of the local high school kickers and quickly realized that the level of engagement I received was as high as it was with the high school kickers.Marc’s passion for what he does clearly distinguishes him from other instructors I had worked with. You cannot teach or coach passion — you can only exemplify it. Marc combines this passion for helping youth achieve athletic goals with knowledge of skills and techniques better than anyone I’ve worked with. I am better because of my involvement with him”.

“I started working with Coach Nolan my sophomore year of high school and continued to work with him into my college career. I benefited greatly from his coaching, and it was great to have him with me on the sidelines during games. Good kick or bad kick, I always knew that Coach Nolan would keep me focused on the rest of the game. During training, I never felt like he pressured me to change my kicking style- he simply took what I had, made me feel confident about it, and made it better. Apart from giving me some great coaching tips, Coach Nolan made our training sessions fun and I enjoyed seeing my kicking improve in a relaxed environment. I feel that I have a great friend and role model in Coach Nolan.”
