December 13, 2018 – Los Angeles Volleyball Academy (LAVA) and SportsRecruits have reached an agreement on a club integration for 3 more years. As part of the agreement, LAVA student-athletes and staff will continue to receive access to the innovative suite of tools provided by the recruiting platform. We had the opportunity to hear from Andre Lennox, the Director of Recruiting at LAVA, about why they chose to use SportsRecruits to give their student-athletes a competitive advantage.
How do you utilize SportsRecruits as a Coach/Director?
“Being the Recruiting Director for a larger size club, I use SportsRecruits to help get a big picture view of how our players are progressing in the recruiting process. SportsRecruits also allows me to easily attach many player profiles to college coaches who are looking for a specific position.”
Why would you recommend this to someone who might be on the fence?
“SportsRecruits makes it easy for players to get started with their recruiting process. Figuring out where to start is a big stress point for most families and the resources that are available to families through SportsRecruits really help them get off the ground with this process.”
What was one of the biggest issues with recruiting before SportsRecruits? How do you envision SportsRecruits impacting those issues?
“One of the biggest issues with recruiting for us before SportsRecruits was that we were not able to get a good handle on where our players were in the recruiting process. Now we can check the Activity Feed every day and get a great feel for what’s going on with recruiting across our entire club.”
