Custom Player Recruiting Program

Each player on our 16U and 18U teams will have one-on-one recruiting discussions to:

  1. Create their player profile information and establish their recruiting profile page
  2. Breaking down their interests and wants for colleges, including what part of the country they like, weather, etc.  We will create a master list for each player
  3. Refine that college list to their top 50 schools by looking at GPA requirements, sat and act requirements and admission acceptance rates.
  4. Create email templates to send to those 50 colleges and help managing the process
  5. Upload videos and photos they have created. 
  6. Additional meetings with players as they receive responses from colleges and help them respond.
