With SportsRecruits, players share their athletic stats, academic transcripts, event schedule and video. The Built-In Messaging System connects the club to every college coach in the country.

Guided Autonomy

SportsRecruits operates as a one-stop-shop where athletes, parents, and club staff alike can contribute to the athlete’s recruitment.

“The platform offers our athletes the ability to communicate with college coaches,” said Strait. “Research potential schools, and create connected player profiles.”

When players find the right schools for them, they can contact coaches at those schools within a few taps.
