September 27, 2014 – Boston, MA – Goal: College Athlete (www.goalcollegeathlete.com) has launched a new set of FREE online tools, named the Student-Athlete Recruiting Platform, to help high school student-athletes achieve maximum productivity and be well organized throughout the course of their college recruiting process. The Student-Athlete Recruiting Platform provides high school athletes with a centralized place to build and manage key items in their recruiting process including:
Student-Athlete Profile – Creating an athletic profile enables athletes to promote themselves, giving coaches a better understanding of them as a student, athlete and person. Athletes can add athletic, academic and personal information as well as upload their highlight videos via YouTube or Vimeo. NEW features that separate the Profile apart include the ability to:
Create personalized profiles for specific schools and coaches
Tell coaches your 12-Month Plan to become a better athlete and student
Offer Coaches a link to the newspaper articles in which you have been highlighted
Use a personalized URL when sending emails to college coaches
Recruiting Calendar – The Recruiting Calendar within the Student-Athlete Recruiting Platform allows high school athletes to be extremely organized and structured during their recruiting process. The calendar enables athletes to plan out every aspect of their recruiting process, for example athletes can:
Enter exactly what date and time they are going to research, call or email specific schools and coaches – plan an entire week or month
Insert placeholders for scheduled calls or meetings as well as add information to those placeholders like phone numbers and addresses
Block out times when they are at school, practice, training or games – great for all-around time management
Set follow up dates with either the coaches you are already corresponding with, or the ones who have not responded to you yet.
Coaches Spreadsheet – The Coaches Spreadsheet is a place high school athletes can build out and maintain college coach’s contact information. If a student-athlete is targeting specific universities and colleges this is a great place to add information including:
Names, email addresses & phone numbers
Assistant coach’s information
Notes from interactions with coaches at a specific school
Links from doing research on the coaches and school
Other Contacts at the School/University (i.e. Financial Aid office)
Social Media links (i.e. Twitter handle)
High School Student-Athletes who utilize the Student-Athlete Recruiting Platform will be able to contact more coaches and present themselves in a professional manner ultimately giving them a better chance to engage with more coaches and programs, receive multiple offers, and select the school that is best for them.
The Student-Athlete Recruiting Platform is a FREE service offered by Goal: College Athlete.
