Athletic Recruiting Made SimpleAthlete xray

The process of recruiting one single athlete, regardless of the sport, is arduous and expensive both in terms of financial resources and the time expended by the team, recruiting coordinator and actual position coach that engage in snail mail communication, email communication, telephone calls, text messages and follow-up. 

It can be compared to a salesman who is “cold-calling” a prospect in the hopes of developing a “qualified” lead for follow-up, sales presentation and ultimately the close.

Further, the process is complicated because the idea of a “Best Fit” is a two edged sword as the athlete, the primary individual in this process, brings their own perceptions and variables to the equation. There is nothing quite as frustrating as going through the process and ending up with an unhappy athlete who has determined that the school and or the program are not a best fit; the same can be said about the program. Mismatches are costly and painful. If this is the case, both parties end up with unmet expectations that lead to lower competitive and academic productivity.  The idea of having to spend further resources to replace an athlete is not a pleasant thought.

Since great choices make great futures, there has to be a better, easier way. 

How tough is it now?

Most coaches, on the direction of the Head Coach and through concert with their recruiting coordinator are given a territory that can be as small as a couple of counties or as large as a couple of states or a region of the country. They are given limited or capped resources for constructing a base of recruits through development of “stringers”, high school coaches and corollary contacts that lead them to the necessary contact information for a potential recruit. Excessive time and energy is spent, not to mention financial resources, which is anything but efficient and effective as this is just the beginning of the recruit qualifying process...but wait, there's more.

Further complicating this process are the NCAA regulations that limit contact and extra benefits so that the field of recruiting remains level.  No one has a competitive advantage over other schools or teams.

Finally there is the pressure to deliver the prized recruit that is the final piece to the puzzle or the foundation of a highly rated recruiting class. This success or failure can literally be the difference between the retaining or replacing of a coach; their livelihood depends on the best fit and success year after year. If only there was a way to predict the athlete's success.  Wait, there is!

PLS and Coaches Advantage College Edition

PLS and Coaches Advantage™ allows the Head Coach, in conjunction with the stated admissions requirements of their college or university, to determine the physical and emotional elements that create a “best fit” scenario that leads to a predicted and populated recruit list that fits those specific elements. For the first time, coaches are able to better predict the success and fit of their potential recruits.

We have populated a list of recruits by position, academic qualifications, physical competitive edge elements, psycho-social best fit assessments and finally social media tracking via our proprietary Athlete Track™, that is quantified in a way that allows for the Prediction of Success.  This saves countless hours and unnecessary financial resources that can be used for other aspects of the recruiting and coaching process. More importantly it gives coaches the advantage they need to find perfect recruit, simply and quickly.
