UPDATE & MAINTAIN YOUR RECRUITING PROFILE

How to Use Your Diamond Players Recruits Profile for Maximum Exposure

Your Recruiting Profile is a valuable tool. 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.

 

Below, you will find detailed instructions for completing each section of your profile, including page images for each input form. But first - here are some valuable tips to remember as you go!

Download Excel Worksheet

Download Numbers Worksheet

Download our Worksheet (Excel for PC or Numbers for Mac) as a handy place to gather and store the information you will input while creating and maintaining your Player Recruiting Profile. You certainly do not have to use the worksheet, but by using this guide, you can easily copy and paste text and website links into your online form fields without hunting for information (names, stats, dates, email addresses, phone numbers, websites, etc.) while working in the form and before submitting the info.

 

In addition to text field inputs, you will also be able to upload photos and documents from your computer. To keep your image files organized, Create a Folder on your computer to store the photo images and document files you will be uploading to your Profile. You can add or change your images and documents as often as you like so having them all in one place makes it easy to quickly update your files as needed. Store the worksheet with your image and document files in the same folder to have everything you need at hand.

KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER:

  • You do not need to complete the sections in any particular order.

  • Unless a field is required, you do not need to enter info until it is available.

  • Most fields have instructions or suggested input format directly beneath.

  • If you don't have info for a particular field, enter NA or leave it blank as indicated.

  • Make sure to include the prefix https:// before a website address.

  • To add videos to your site, 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 fields in your form. Each video will play in a separate window.
