    It is very important that your Profile is kept current. Check it at least once per week and make sure to add or update new information. NOTE: Recently created and UPDATED Profiles are shown at the TOP of the Profile Directory Listing.
  • How do I make a recruiting video?
    Videos have become critical sources of information for today's recruiters and scouts. Well-prepared game and skills videos create a great first impression and will give recruiters a good look at your athleticism and skill set. For Best Video Presentation: Upload your separate videos to YouTube, Hudl, Vimeo, Wistia, or any other video hosting site that creates a sharable URL link to your video. Enter the video links in the appropriate field on your Profile input form. Each video will play in a separate window. IMPORTANT: If you want to use videos you have on other recruiting sites, make sure they allow you to share your video URL link. NOTE: Coaches prefer to see shorter videos of each skill rather than one long video with all skills running together. Click here to see sample videos and best practices for production and presentation.
  • How do I add web links to my Profile?
    While creating or updating your Profile, you will see input fields for website and video links. Type or copy and paste the URL. Make sure to include https://www in the address.

  • Is it important to add verify dates and information to my Profile?
    YES - First of all, recruiters will see how recently your stats were recorded. Information about your results at events, locations, and dates will help them verify the accuracy of your numbers and also give them an additional reference to check. A recruiter will be suspicious of any results or stats you submit without verifying information or references. DO NOT exaggerate your numbers. This is a sure way to be removed from a recruiters follow list.
